I've just tried to do this; without success. According to my research, 
the LWP::UserAgent code

   $response = $useragent->get($url,
        'Accept-Encoding' => 'gzip,deflate');

should do it, but NMSN never sends me compressed content as a result. I 
thought perhaps the MSID spoofing code (to avoid redirections) might 
prevent it somehow, but turning that off didn't make any difference.

If anyone manages to get compressed content from the site please let me 
know and I'll incorporate the required changes.
