Just tried it out. I'm a Bell customer (not sure if it makes a diff) but this allows me to download a crappy looking video file (NOT STREAM!) to my BlackBerry and play it back. And the play back is choppy on my 8703e. Over all - not impressed.

Do Rogers customers get actual streaming? Does it seem smooth over EDGE?

Just downloaded this program. The play back is a bit choppy on my 8703e as well. I'm on the Telus network. Program is average, but i believe it can be better. Live stream would be cool, if they were to offer that.

that would be nice but we would have to wait until the 3g blackberries are released for it to be any use.
