Bell TV app comes to BlackBerry 10

Bell customers will be happy to know that the Bell TV app has made its way to BlackBerry 10. The free app allows Bell TV customers to watch live TV including over Wi-Fi while Bell Mobility Customers can connect to Mobile TV and view on-demand programming. 

The app also provides channel guides, alert notifications, feature programs and more. Of course you'll need to be in Canada and a Bell customer to take part in the fun, but the app itself looks pretty sweet overall. 

  • Bell TV customers: Watch many channels included in your Fibe TV or Satellite TV subscription over Wi-Fi for free1.  
  • Bell Mobility customers: Connect to Mobile TV and enjoy 10 hours of viewing live and On Demand TV channels for only $5/mo over the cellular or a Wi-Fi network with no impacts to your data plan.  
  • Customers with both Bell TV and Bell Mobility: Enjoy the most live and On Demand TV channels. Connect to Mobile TV and get 10 hours of viewing for only $5/mo over the cellular network2. Viewing on Wi-Fi is free for channels you can access as part of your Bell TV home subscription, and part of the 10 hours of viewing for channels you access through the Mobile TV add-on.

The Bell TV app is available free for the Z10 and Q10.

Bell makes a TV app, but not a Mobility App?

MaxxJag

This app does both Fibe TV (if you have it) or Mobility if you're subscribed (or both)

SFWriter

The 'mobility app' is already on the Z10 as SIM Services. Click on that and you have access to the self serve and a couple other features.

theHip

Self serve brings you to a website. Other than that you can access your phone number or "special numbers". It's hardly a useful app.

Well that's utterly useless in Alberta... Come on, Shaw! Get with the times!

I'd love a Shaw app, id settle for a HBO Go app though lol

R Field

It's awesome I get TMN and HBO and a bunch of other movies and on demand shows. Great app Bell.

Been waiting for this! Thank you Bell! It's been part of my plan since Feb. But obviously I could not make use of it. It's free and doesn't count against your data for 10 hours mobile viewing if you get 1 gig or more of data per month in your contract.

From my sweet BB10 Neutrino powered Z10 :D

djraz_official

Thank goodness for unlimited data. Thank goodness for Telus. Bah only wifi on Telus hahaha well with my rocking lightning speeds this should be awesome

Doesn't sound like you can remotely program the DVR to record a show while you're out.

Playbook007

Can you view your TV Subscription over wifi if you are not at home? Eg at a hotel while travelling. If so sure puts a kick into Netflix Canada and given the fact the BlackBerry phones have an HDMI out port makes this awesome. BB10 keeps getting attention of some big corporations.

BlackBerry will survive in the Corporate and Government Sectors! My Z10 is so much better than an iphone!

R Field

It doesn't let you use hdmi unfortunately

rally5464

Seriously?? That was one of my reasons to switch carriers so I can watch it on the flat screen...

thedustytaco

uhh why not
use actual tv?...

Posted via CB10

rally5464

Student on a budget. Got the tv, but no cable/sat.

MaxxJag

Doesn't show anything, or simply mirror? Will try when I get home and validate.

bobshine

I'll test it to see. Either way I love this app... since there is no HBO go app to TMN app for BB10, this actually does the job... and better!

Posted via CB10

bobshine

Damn it doesn't allow display on an external device. I am starting to think that the reason this app was delayed is because Bell ask BlackBerry for an OS update to prevent mirroring.

Too bad... i would pay extra to have that available... Hmmm maybe not. My bill us already high enough

Finally..the long waiting is over... I downloaded, so far it is good

Comcast needs this in the U.S... Watch a little Ray Donovan "on the fly" on Showtime...

jwyoungy

Downloaded it today, works amazing. Who needs Netflix now?

Late, but great. Includes both FibeTV and Mobility TV.

susu222

This is frigging big news. Now for all the big media company like Rogers and Shaw and the big banks in Canada at least to show some love for our battered BB . gotta start somewhere for these useful apps for BB10 for our daily living

theRock1975

Now hopefully we'll see. Available on Android, ios, and BB10

Posted via CB10

GeneralHerzog

THAT, right there would go a major way in BB10 sales. There are toooo many ads out there which only say get it on the app store and google play.

theRock1975

Yes very smooth App!!

Good job Bell.

Just out of curiosity, is it native or a android port?

Posted via CB10

SFWriter

Does not seem to be an android port at all. Its very smooth.

willwnet

It is native. One of the more impressive BlackBerry 10 apps actually.

bobshine

It's native and freaking incredibly smooth and fast!

just_luc

Working great for me.. put in my bell satelite TV credentials and i'm watching live news over wifi at the office now..

Only thing left is to find a way to have my Z10 connect to it's own hotspot so I can trick the app into thinking i'm on wifi when i'm out of the office!

EauRouge

Also, this is a beautiful native app. It's fast, responsive and feature rich. Very well done by Bell!!

Content viewed over Wi-Fi at home will count towards your monthly Internet data usage......NOT COOL

bobshine

It's you home internet plan. I have over 70 GB. Nothing to worry

Posted via CB10

rockivy

That's excellent I might switch back to bell, Telus is still dragging their feet on a Optik app they have all kinds of stuff for the iCrap, frustrating come on Telus support all the platforms you sell, or you might loose an Optik customer...

Now let's hope Swisscom does the same!

boys_inter

so let me get this straight any bell customer can use this, however if we dont have the Bell TV option on our mobility account it gets charged as regular data and if we have the option it is just $5 and no data usage?

ignites

5$ and no data usage for 10 hours.

if you have bell tv then you get the extra channels

silvister

Will it be available on Q5 :[?

My BlackBerry App say: For this device not available?? What?

Savior4Life

Nice! but no DVR control...?

Randy Scanlan

This does not work for Bell Aliant customers, even on fibre op. Bell apparently has about 5 different companies in Canada that are not associated to each other.

If you're in eastern Canada this app is useless unless you have the old bell expressvu satellite service.

Posted via CB10

ignites

Bell Aliant =/= BCE Different listed companies although BCE owns part of Aliant

Thanks!

Florida everyone asking about PVR options, you can sideload the Bell Remote PVR app. It works great.

CrackberryBrianS

Does this app work only on wifi? If not subscribed to the 10 hour service? Help!
