Video Podcasts Go Portable with the BlackBerry Podcast App
Free podcasts delivered to you—on the go
If you live in the connected world you've likely watched or listened to a podcast sometime in the last year on your desktop or laptop computer. But now you can cut the cords. The new BlackBerry® Podcast app lets you watch and listen to free podcasts on your BlackBerry smartphone—from virtually any location, any time of day.
The BlackBerry Podcast app lets you wirelessly stream or download all those must-see podcasts directly to your BlackBerry smartphone's micro-SD™ card (over the air or via Wi-Fi®).

Podcasts delivered to you
Even better, BlackBerry push delivery will send subscribed podcasts to your smartphone as soon as they are available and instantly alert you of the new content. Whether you prefer listening to audio podcasts or watching video, you can let your BlackBerry smartphone do all the background work while you just relax and hit play.
Finding your favorite podcasts is also a snap. Once installed, the BlackBerry Podcast app will point you to a growing catalog of compelling audio and video content. You can browse individual categories; swipe through featured channels; check out the top downloads; or alternatively search by keyword. You can even add RSS feeds from podcasts outside the catalog.
Once you find the podcast channel you want, you can look up particular episodes—with descriptions—and subscribe to those feeds that interest you. The BlackBerry Podcast app will grab the most recent episode and schedule downloads for future episodes. Your subscription preferences will also be synced while viewing the catalog so you’ll always know whether or not you’ve already subscribed to whatever content interests you.
New! Try out the BlackBerry Connection Podcasts
As an added bonus, you can now enjoy BlackBerry Connection Podcasts—a new video series with tips and tricks, the latest BlackBerry smartphones and accessories, and killer apps.
Upcoming episodes will spotlight music, social networking, and productivity tools for work. After all, there’s no better place to learn how to operate your BlackBerry smartphone than on your own BlackBerry smartphone.
Familiar player...familiar notification
The BlackBerry Podcast app uses your smartphone's built-in Media Player to play downloaded content. Your BlackBerry smartphone also displays new content notification directly on the Podcast app, much like new email notifications, so you’ll never miss an episode of your favorite podcast.
Long-time podcast devotees and those new to the medium will benefit equally from the new Podcast app. The former can connect to their favorite files and episodes much more efficiently while podcast greenhorns can easily filter through the vast selection of content at their own pace. Whatever your level of exposure, you’re just one click away from an elevated BlackBerry podcast experience.
