    Kudos on the launch - but still in shock that they failed to support the 80% of Blackberry users with World Edition 8810, Curve 83xx and 81xx models, among others.

    No technical reason for it.

    That shuts out millions of potential users. Somebody missed the boat on this, sorry to say.

    I downloaded it for my BB Curve 8900 and just checked it out. You can watch the pre-game shows right now.

    It works great (I am at home and am using the wi-fi connection so I'm not sure how it works w/out that yet).

    The feed is actually about 2 seconds ahead of the TV feed.

    I've got it successfully installed on my Blackberry Tour, but when I attempt to launch all I get is "unable to connect to Directv server". Is this an indication that my blackberry MDS connection and collaboration services are not enabled? I'm on a BES. Thanks!

    Sounds like you have diagnosed the problem pretty well. :(

    Cheers,

    I don't have the link, but you should be able to find it with 'DIRECTV Supercast'

    Oh, I thought of one other search term .. 'DIRECTV, Inc'

    Any of those should find the NFL Mobile App.

    Working well on my iPod Touch with WiFi, although it does take some time to load.

    As an Curve 8330 owner, I'm disappointed too. Kinda baffling really,

    Pretty impressive. PQ not quite as good as I hoped but better than nothing. Works fine on 3G and Wi-Fi. I didn't try edge. I'm using an iPhone 3G.

    Had trouble at the Ravens game getting any consistent bandwidth of any kind so it was a waste there (gotta talk to AT&T about the overload during the games) but watched it on 3G on way home and wifi at a bar. PQ was consistent with MLB TV and Slingbox (of course Sling is wifi only).

    Would prefer a single wrapup video to the multiple highlights (or in addition to) for finished games. Also, lots of errors on the titles. Matt Stover does not kick for the Ravens anymore, guys (and they had the FG as KC highlight rather than Baltimore).

    PQ on the iPhone (3G S) was bad. Borderline unwatchable on some games, over both WiFi and 3G.

    That sounds like a bandwidth problem. The app gets performance info from the OS (at least on some platforms, might be the app itself on others) and adjusts the picture often.

    Good luck,
    Tom

    supercast on my i phone was awsome. the longer i watched it the pq got better almost as clear as hd at times. i watched on 3G and only buffered a few times. i did find the live feed on the i phone to be about 1 min behind real time but that's ok. i was also very disapointed to find you can only connect 1 device at a time bummer several i phone's at my house and everybody wanted to watch on there phone. good thing i am the king at my house. for me this is the best thing to happen to sunday ticket in years. thank dtv for this app

    Maryland,...
    BB Storm 9530 (VZW)

    Wasn't able to connect yesterday. Got the following error message, which I took to be a BES problem:

    Response entity too large. Please contact network administrator.

    My IT guy says my permissions are turned on (though I'm asking him to double check).

    Today (Monday), the app opens and I have a list of games. I can access the stats. But when I try to play highlights, on an individual game or "most recent highlights," I get the response,"no highlights available."

    Do the highlights play only on Sunday, or is this an issue with my setup?
