    BBTV- Video downloads to the Pearl

    Advertisement



    Has anyone tried BBTV? It is a client that you download from Rogers in Canada, for FREE, you just have to register.

    It works fine on my T-mobile Pearl, actually the only application I have seen that actiually allows you to download videos and then play them. The client even has it's own video player which seems better than the one on the pearl as it allows full screen and other options.

    The drawback is that you can only download and play the limited news videos that they have on their web site.

    BUT the good news is that it works!!! So, to me, this means that 3rd party developers should be able to deliver some creative video solutions on the Pearl.

    The web site is canada.com/bbtv/index.html, BUT put www in front of it

    I have BBTV working on my Pearl...it's pretty cool, but I don't know why it works on mine and not my friends. All the settings look the same including my APN settings. Help

    Does BBTV require me to have a data plan?

    I can't get it to work either. I am with T-Mo. I do note that when installing it asks for a Canadian province address. Maybe that indicates that the application only works with Rogers' OS?

    Bet that's it, there is something in the code? Query to OP: Even though you are with T-Mo, did you install the Rogers OS?

    Installing the Rogers version should work on all devices.

    Can't remember if I wrote it in the exclusive thread anywhere, but I just made a bunch of things up when it asked for my address information.

    It is working on my unlocked tmo pearl on Cingular network. I clicked the link for Bell or Telus subscribers and made up an address in Canada. Then I installed it and started downloading clips.

    it's me again, my pearl is locked and on TMO network; the BBTV works fine...i did have a 3rd party program (emailviewer) working on my old 7100 before i upgraded to the Pearl. I loaded BBTV set my APN to wap.voicestream.com on the Pearl and i was up ran running. As I said before on my friends Pearl, i can't get to work...i thing it has to do with the wap transport?

    what version did you download for your locked pearl on the TMO network? there are several versions out there.

    also, are you being charged for using the service?
