    I have a storm and still can't download this properly. I am very technologically advanced and it keeps asking me to "save" teh file and then I get an error. For you Storm folks are you BES or BIS?

    I am a Storm BIS sub and I was able to download it a few minutes ago with no problems.This was my second attempt. The first time it asked to save to my media card.

    Logged in and watch the intro video. All is well.

    I figured no love for the 83xx Curve. That sucks, but I can live through it.

    I agree with you. There is no reason the Curve and World editions shouldn't be supported. It's all a JAVA language. We all know how difficult JAVA can be but still there are alot of Curves out there. More new versions coming soon too

    I can't get this sucker to download onto my Storm. Keeps saying it can't open so I have to save it, then I try to open the saved file and download but the download fails with the COD error.

    I'm on BIS with OS 4.7.0.151

    Kake sure you are clicking the OTA and not the zip file. Zip will have to be extracted and installed on the DM. Also 5.0.191 this app won't work at all. It's super buggy anyways. Going back to .148 or .151 will allow this app to work.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about as there isn't an option to d/l a zip file. when going to http://m.directv.com/supercast. It is a .jad for the BBs and a .cab for the WinMo devices.

    Also, as I already stated, I'm running OS 4.7.0.151 (not on OS 5 yet because I use the Facebook app).

    Oddly enough, I tried one more time and the sucker went right to downloading and installing. Login and video seems to work great!

    Woohoo!

    I posted about an hour ago that this app was available on a BB forum. A couple of people reported that they were having problems like everyone here and just kept trying and suddenly it worked.

    thanks.. I am on 191 as well.. looks like I will go back to 148 - or maybe 167 - too bad because 5.0 makes it a completely different phone.

    I heard this from our sources at DIRECTV:
    They know precisely the root cause of it, so I'm sure soon really does mean soon.

    Yeah I finally got mine to work...was starting to get a little worried!.. But I got the video to play and the "See you on the 13th" .. For those of you trying to save and run the file, it actually shouldnt prompt you to save and should go straight to the download screen. Also my introduction vid was freezing during playback. Who knows if the connection will be fast enough to broadcast a live feed....

    Like I posted on Crackberry... if you're running a Storm with 4.7 OS you should be fine. I can't say anything about the folks running 5.0.

    Just keep trying. It magically worked on mine after 15 or so tries.

    Stuart,

    Crackberry.com and Blackberryos.com (more like DBSTalk) are the two alot of people use. Oddly enough there was a thread posted there (bbos.com) about the coming app. Seems like this is going to be a popular app. I know i'll use it eveyweek :D
