BlackBerry owners get iPlayer app

BlackBerry owners get iPlayer app

BlackBerry owners can now catch up with Eastenders and catch action from the Football League while they’re on the move, with the arrival of the BBC iPlayer app for select models of the messaging focussed handsets.

The app has been on the iPhone now for aeons. And with a bit sneaky work-aroud-y-ness, on Android phones too, although it has yet to officially land on the platform.

Now you BlackBerry types can join the party, provided you’ve got the BlackBerry Storm 2, BlackBerry Bold 9700 or the BlackBerry Torch 9800, that is.

However, unfortunately you’ll only be able to use 3G networks for streaming Auntie’s programming if you’re a monthly contract customer with 3 or Vodafone, which are the only carriers allowing it to be used over their networks.

Naturally that’s not to stop you using WiFi, but that does limit access rather.

Anyway, if you’re interested, the iPlayer app is available to download now free of charge from BlackBerry App World.
