Okay, well, since we have found some new and interesting things out about multimedia on ... BlackBerry Multimedia forum
Lists of Multimedia WebPages/Alerts/Podcasts
Okay, well, since we have found some new and interesting things out about multimedia on the pearl, let's start a thread for webpages, alerts, podcasts, etc that are proven to WORK on the Pearl OTA (Video and/or Audio).
As some of you may know, and as tecrishon pointed out, Podcasts and mobile OTA downloading are good for a number or things...if you are on the train bored and want to catch up on the news, it's there for you. There are also some other good points about these podcasts, such as you can download them and save them to your SD card...Meaning while you are at work, you can download 3 podcasts, say of the evening news, and listen to them on your drive home in the car, ride home on the train, or while out and about shopping or dining..
Please list the direct link to the part of the site. For example, if you find that CNN podcasts work, rather than put cnn.com, put the link to that podcast page (IE: www.cnn.com/podcasts).
Also, if it is subscription site, please let that be known also (IE: $2.99/month, etc).
And please give a brief description of the site, what it revolves around.
Also, if there is a thread somewhere on Pinstack that already gives information about the program/site/etc and has opinions, reviews, comments, please put that also.
These will ONLY work on an 8100 Pearl as of right now!
