    SlingPlayer video player for BlackBerry Beta program

    Advertisement



    Berryreview.com alerted readers of a Slingplayer for BlackBerry Beta program. More details...

    The rumors are true.... we've been tinkering around with a BlackBerry to the point that we'll be able to demo video streaming at CES in Las Vegas, January 7 - 10, 2008!

    However, the beta program is still a ways off. If you'd like to be notified when we're ready to recruit for it (down the road), follow the steps below.

    FYI, Vicky, our Product Manager Extraordinaire, spent much of 2007 in discussions with Research in Motion (RIM)--directly in response to customer requests. Now that they're moving towards supporting streaming video, we're jumping at the chance to develop a client for the platform.

    HOW TO BE NOTIFIED ABOUT THE BETA PROGRAM (DATE TBD)

    You will need both a Slingbox and a BlackBerry to be considered for participation. To let us know that you have these items:
    1. On the left panel, click "Add Platform"
    2. Then click "Computers & Handhelds" to add your BlackBerry info; click "Slingbox" to add your Slingbox; and add anything else you want us to know about.
    3. It will also help greatly to complete the User Profile (also left panel), as we'll be looking for a diversity of people.
    4. Lastly: Make sure your EMAIL ADDRESS is accurate: click on Personal Account to check.
    Again, the beta program won't be starting for awhile (no dates yet), but if you do the above, we'll keep you in the loop of important dates. You're also welcome to check back here, anytime.


    Sling on!

    I just talked to

    Brian Jaquet

    Director, Public Relations
    Sling Media, Inc.
    Direct: 650-293-8022
    jaquet@slingmedia.com

    and was asking him question about this and was told that they are waiting on a firmware upgrade on the blackberry's to make this technology work. He said that the problem is that they can't stream video. Told him that I was aware of this for my 8830 and that the 8130 can though and would this be available now for that with the beta software. He kept saying you can stream video on your 8130 and I said yes, he said I am not talking about just open your media player and playing some video's off of your card and I said I know, streaming off of the internet. He treated me like I am full of ****. So, I want to know. Is watching video's off of youtube and watching msnbc mobile and watching tv on mobitv and video's off of orb. Is this not streaming video off of the internet or am I being a tard...
    Let me know! LOL
