PrimeTime2Go BBerry Live
As previewed at CTIA, Quickplay today took its PrimeTime2Go mobile TV live for BlackBerry smartphones. The subscription service gives owners unlimited access to TV shows from multiple networks, including ABC, NBC and SciFi, and relies on a relatively transparent system to provide the videos; chosen episodes are downloaded in the background whenever the phone is on a Wi-Fi connection. Owners can also follow seasons and receive new episodes as soon as they're made available.
PrimeTime2Go is available today as a download through BlackBerry App World and requires a monthly $8 fee. For now, the service requires either a BlackBerry Bold or Curve 8900 and doesn't support the Storm, which lacks Wi-Fi of its own.
