QuickPlay does not seem to have gotten enough traction with the First Video player for BlackBerry so I guess they are moving on to Satellite radio. AT&T has had this feature for quite awhile but the subscription fees were just not worth it for the few minutes I might listen a month.
The nice part about the QuickPlay XM feature is that it is Universal. Meaning that it will work on any carrier. Once again the privilege of XM radio is priced high at $7.99 a month with a free 24–hour trial.
For the $7.99/month price tag you get 20 XM channels including XM’s 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s decade channels, 20on20 (Top 20 Hits), Ethel (New Alternative Rock), The City (Hip-Hop/R&B Hits), XMU (Indie Rock), Watercolors (Easy Jazz) and Highway 16 (New Country Hits). You can also listen to XM comedy channels, The Virus (outrageous uncensored talk) and XM Comedy (uncensored comedy).
You can pick up the trial from www.xmradio.com/bb. I know of at least one other person who had issues downloading it so hopefully it will work. So far it only seems to be available for OS 4.2 devices including the 8100, 8300, 8700, & 8800 series devices.
