BlackBerry Podcasts App Coming to BlackBerry PlayBook

BlackBerry PlayBook Podcasts

To round out RIM’s inclusion of the 7Digital Music Store on the PlayBook we now have BlackBerry Podcasts. RIM has confirmed that the BlackBerry Podcasts app will come preinstalled on the BlackBerry PlayBook. It will let you easily “find and browse content, as well as quickly and easily subscribe to favorite channels.”

BlackBerry PlayBook users will be able to browse top podcast episodes by download or search through 19 content categories, including sports, entertainment, business and more. Other features of the PlayBook Podcasts app include:

  • Episode Preview – Preview Audio and Video Podcast episodes before they are downloaded
  • High Fidelity Viewing – Video podcasts will be delivered in their native resolution (up to 1080p), allowing full realization of the BlackBerry PlayBook’s high fidelity 7-inch 1024×600 screen
  • Delivery – Subscriptions will update when the application is open – then just click to listen or watch the latest podcasts
  • Preferences Users can control their download preferences – from number of episodes, to retain, to explicit content filters

RIM will be showing off the BlackBerry Podcasts app at SXSW conference. I am really liking how the consumer experience on the BlackBerry PlayBook is rounding out. RIM now has most bases covered with Podcasts and a music store. Now all they need is a video rental/purchase system.

  1. nice to see native support off the bat

  2. And what is all this negative press about “not enough apps” for the playbook? All I see is a large variety of apps.

  3. Video podcast! That’s what the OS6 lacking. The podcast app is nice but video podcast is way more interesting.

  4. I’ve had Podcasts app since the beta and only recently started listening. Too bad there’s no BerryReview podcast!

    Seems a no brainer this is to be included. Good to see confirmed.
