While there are workarounds, the best course of action is to write to
the companies and let them know that you use Ubuntu and want to view
their content. For them the change to support Ubuntu may be trivial,
but they will not not do that if they do not know that people use
Ubuntu because Linux in general is still perceived as a niche OS. Here
are their addresses, please let them know that you are interested in
viewing their content on Ubuntu:
