    QuickPlay Media Introduces First Free Streaming Video Service for Blackberry

    Advertisement





    QuickPlay Media, a leader in mobile TV and video solutions today announced the availability of VideoStreams, the first free* video streaming service for BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM). The streaming video service features a variety of entertainment content, including music videos, comedy, horoscopes and extreme sports, and is available immediately to customers in the United States and Canada.

    VideoStreams is initially available on the BlackBerry® Pear 8130 smartphone to subscribers on North American wireless carrier networks that support EVDO**, such as Sprint Nextel, Bell Mobility, Telus Mobility and Alltel Wireless. Eligible customers can visit www.videostreamsmobile.com using the BlackBerry® Browser to download the VideoStreams application over the air and to start using the service right away. Videos are streamed to the smartphone so there are no long waits to view the content, and unlike download services, no additional on-device storage is required. The service also includes a “send to a friend” feature to allow users to share video clips with friends and family.

    QuickPlay currently offers streaming audio services for BlackBerry smartphones via QuickPlayer Audio, the first audio streaming service introduced for the BlackBerry platform. QuickPlay also offers a white label video streaming solution for mobile operators that enables them to provide a custom branded service to their customers with content from their partners, from QuickPlay partners, or from a combination of both.

    “The mobile market is exploding – with new applications, devices, and services introduced to the world each day – and RIM is a company at the forefront of this rapidly changing marketplace,” said Wayne Purboo, CEO and co-founder, QuickPlay Media. “We are excited to continue our history of innovation by being the first to offer BlackBerry smartphone customers free access to our high quality video services."

    “BlackBerry smartphones are attracting a wider range of mobile customers who want to use more personal applications and entertainment services,” said Jeff McDowell, vice president, Global Alliances at Research In Motion. "In turn, this trend is attracting a new class of developer partners, like QuickPlay, who are creating consumer and lifestyle applications that deliver new experiences for BlackBerry smartphone users."

    QuickPlay’s VideoStreams service will be available worldwide to more regions and mobile operators as additional BlackBerry smartphones that support streaming video are rolled out on various wireless networks

    Movy.tv has actually been streaming video, live and archived, to BlackBerries for quite a while now.
    It is also a UGC site so you can stream your own videos after you upload them.

    I downloaded it also and gave it a day or so to try. Both in and out of highspeed areas. I hate to say it but it does not work very well. I was able to get one video to play, choppy, digital chatter and kept cutting out. Every other time I tried using it, it took upwards of 5 minutes to finally load to the video screen but no video. Good thing it was free, would have been a huge waste of money otherwise.

    THIS IS ONLY FOR THE 8130! NOT THE Pearl 8100!
