    As far as i know you can't watch wmv nor flash for that matter the reason is :- This is an industry-wide issue caused because the accepted Digital Rights Management (DRM) system used to protect online video content, which is required by our content owners, is not compatible with Apple Mac hardware and software. The closed DRM system used by Apple is not currently available for licence by third parties and there is no other Mac-compatible DRM solution which meets the protection requirements of content owners. Unfortunately, we are therefore unable to offer 4oD content to Mac users at this stage.

    I found that on the 4 on demand site when i tried playing things off there and I presume that the reason WMV don't work on the iPhone is a similar reason
