There is an Options -> Options that pops up a User Agent Switching
Options panel. You can add/edit/rearrange the User Agents.  Also has an
import/export feature which looks good for propagation.

TSN.ca's video feeds have been a pain. The UAS was sufficient to get
past the "Sorry, your OS is not supported!"  message. Switching to
"Internet Explorer 6 (Windows XP)" I get a message screen with "You need
to upgrade your Flash Player to version 8 or later." I have Debian
non-free, version 9,0,31 installed.
