BlackBerry gets BBC iPlayer app

8 November 2010

BBC iPlayer new homepageDo you own a BlackBerry? Well done you. You must be thrilled.

Now, you can watch BBC's iPlayer on it with the release of an application that allows users to access the service on their handset. Provided, of course, if you have a BlackBerry Storm 2, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 or the BlackBerry Torch 9800.

If you have a monthly contract with Vodafone or Three will be able to access iPlayer via the 3G mobile phone network. If not, then you're best bet is to only try using over Wi-Fi, okay?

The BBC iPlayer application is available to download for free from BlackBerry App World.

Of course, there's similar apps already available for other smartphones, some of them not official releases, but they allow users to access catch-up television services. We're not telling you the names of them though, just in case they're illegal. Besides, you probably know more about all this than we do. Bitterwallet has one Nokia with snake II on it that we all share between us.

Anyway, happy skiving in the bogs at work listening to BBC World Service or whatever tickles your pickle.

    But isn't the Blackberry designed for those who don't understand technology? Won't this be too complicated for them?
