Looks like they are using something called cirrus encore for streaming
which does quite a bit of javascript to try and detect add blockers
before allowing access to the stream.

So perhaps if your javascript skills are good enough you can untangle
that spaghetti and find something.

Nothing obvious stands out that's for sure.

Maybe they desperately need to make some add money to stay alive.
