Default Watch news videos through internet?

Please Login to Remove!

I am currently preparing for hurricane Ike since I live near Galveston. There is a news station that offers a live coverage video online so you watch the news, in case you can't watch TV. When I access this site via interent on my BB curve, there is no option to watch their news video. I would love to have this availble, so when the electricity goes out, I can stay in touch.

Is this an issue with the website?
Or do I not have the capabilty to watch videos online?

Thanks!

You can't watch just regular video on the BB, it does not support Flash, which it probably is.

Just in case you've never been through a hurricane, I would refrain from using your phone as much as possible. It could be days before you have an opportunity to recharge it... Even then, the towers only have enough battery/fuel for generators to stay up for about 48 hours.

Good luck!
