    yeah, I saw that and hope the storm is included. I wonder why the Palm Pre is getting love before the storm?

    Anyone get this to install yet? I installed it on my Windows Mobile 6.1 device. It installed without a problem, but the application does not appear to be on the device. I can't find it and can't launch it.

    IMO, too many Mobile/Phone Operating Systems to cater to:

    Android OS (Google Phone)
    iPhone OS
    Blackberry OS
    Palm OS
    Windows Mobile
    Symbian sp? (Nokia)

    Did I forget any?

    Neat....if they can only provide this service to the largest mobile device user base out there - BlackBerry - we have a grand slam home run. :D

    But I think it is great they are expanding this support to more devices.

    Kudos.

    I downloaded and installed it on my Blackjack II (windows mobile 6.1). I can't find any application either. Or does this download just let it work with a website that we will need to go to on Sundays?

    I've heard of the same workaround that Greg mentioned. I have a Blackjack II myself.

    Awesome. This feature will come in handy for me. I've installed the program on my Omnia and it seems to be working fine. Program is listed as "NFL Mobile" and once I gave my DirecTV login info it played a short clip. Took a couple of tries to install. The .cab seemed to be particular about where I downloaded and installed it. I couldn't get it to install on my storage card. Install only worked when I had it download and install directly to the device storage.

    Woohoo!!!

    So why can't we test this on live streams today?? :)

    Installed on a HTC Touch Pro 2 from T-mobile, alas I had to go with the alternative install. The installer program wasn't "signed or one of the components wasn't found". I installed from a storage card to a storage card, perhaps that was the problem?

    After the alternative install, the app worked fine from a storage card.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Installed (either way) on Treo Pro, and get:

    Error

    An unexpected error has occurred in
    WiMo_Supercast.exe.
    Select Quit and then restart this program,
    or select Details for more information.

    Installed and working on a Sprint Mogul. Didn't have to do anything special, mine worked with just regular install though it did install like 3 different files or so.

    With the supercast app what are the chances we get a dvr scheduler app for windows mobile now?

    Make sure you have MS .NET framework 3.5 installed first.
