PRESS RELEASE
FlyCast Press Contact: Matthew Meyer - 302-351-4486

FlyCast Mobile Network Extends Its Reach to New BlackBerry Smartphones
Over 1000 channels of entertainment to be offered free to BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry Storm users

SANTA CLARA, CA xxx8211; October 21, 2008 xxx8211; FlyCast today announced at the
BlackBerry® Developer Conference, where the company is a finalist in the
BlackBerry Developer Challenge, that on November 1st, its mobile broadcast
network will be ready for the BlackBerry® Curve, BlackBerry® Boldxxx8482; and
BlackBerry® Stormxxx8482; smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM;
TSX: RIM) .

FlyCastxxx8217;s mobile broadcast network is one of the first of its kind to be
available for BlackBerry smartphones. It will be available as a free download from
the FlyCast mobile website (mobile.flycast.fm) beginning November 1st.
The FlyCast network is the first specifically designed application to deliver radio,
video and podcasts over mobile broadband and Wi-Fi networks to mobile devices.
As a compelling free alternative to satellite radio, the FlyCast network has
experienced explosive growth in users and content since its launch in January 2008.

Sam Abadir, FlyCastxxx8217;s CEO, said xxx8220;With the success of the recent consumer-oriented
BlackBerry smartphones, it was an easy decision for us to add FlyCast support for
the BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry Storm. Our focus is on giving
users the best possible mobile entertainment experience and these three
smartphones are excellent examples of how to effectively combine consumer and
business mobile functionality. Since our network delivers a broad spectrum of
content, including news, talk, sports, traffic, weather and every genre of music,
wexxx8217;re sure that BlackBerry users will quickly embrace FlyCast.xxx8221;

The FlyCast Mobile Broadcast Network includes over 1000 stations from top
terrestrial and web broadcasters, including Entercom, Cox Radio, AccuRadio, 977
Music, 1.FM, 1Club and radioIO. The network provides unsurpassed quality of
service and paradigm-shifting features, like StreamSlipTM, which allows users to
continue to listen to a station even during extended periods without a
connection; Top of the HourTM, which allows latecomers to listen from the beginning
of news, talk and sports radio shows; SongSkipTM, which allows listeners to skip to
the next song on certain webcast stations and pause on all stations. The BlackBerry
smartphone version of FlyCast supports background play, allowing users to listen
while they use their handset for other functions, and also supports playback
through Bluetooth® stereo headsets.

EDITORxxx8217;S NOTE:
A FlyCast review guide, logos, and hi resolution screen shots are available at its website under the press section

Well then, it's not "Now On BlackBerry", it it? This thread should have been titled a press release, or "coming soon", rather than mislead the readers of this thread from the headlines.

"Initially, the BlackBerry support will be limited to three models, the Curve, Bold, and Storm."

That's not Blackberry support!! That's Curve, Bold, and Storm support. :(

No one cares about those models any more!! ;)

Its been posted before. I have tried it out and it works on my 8310 .81 OS. Only thing is I can't see how you add your own stations you want to listen too. However, the nice thing about it, you don't use the BB Media player and its flaws.

Go to their site and go through the main area.
You will see a large IPOD and a button next to it that says
"Sign Up for Flytunes"

Click on this and you can register.
Then you will be able to login from your BB.

Took me a while to figure it out yesterday.

Thank you. I am logged in. In accordance with my device, my settings are network only. I was able to load a song for a moment. I guess I will need to use trial and error.
