Default bbTV - Rogers

Please Login to Remove!

Rogers website excludes the Perl from the list of bbTV supported devices. However I logged into the WAP Browser and installed it from the applications there and it works.

Yea, it is $5 per month for unlimited downloads (that does not affect your data plan).

They provide about 5 Global TV news updates per day, a well as SportsNet highlights and Finnancial news. Each clip is no more than 2 minutes. I find it particularly useful when I travel. The video quality is OK. The interface shows you the clips available from the past 2 days. Each clip takes about 2 minutes to download.

I used that Rogers on the Pearl last year, did not like it.

Not really a fan of downloaded video clips in the guise of "TV." Did not like that they even call it TV because it isn't.

Back in the dark, evil days, aka when I was with SPRINT, I subscribed to their TV of the time. Was the same thing, 2 minute video clips. Was cool for about a week, then I decided I did not like it. Same complaints as with Rogers, choppy, not that good a pic, had to download and were only about 2 minutes at most.

I'll wait for real TV to come out. It's in the works.

But for now I love watching Seinfeld on my Pearl. I have all the episodes in AVI format that I converted to Pearl format. The other thing I do is record TV shows with my DVD recorder. Then put the disc into my PC and use Clone DVD Mobile to convert to Pearl format. A one hour show takes all of about 10 minutes to convert.

That's the extent of my TV on the Pearl and it does not cost me anything.
