So BBM Channels has been announced and if you've fired it up you'll certainly be looking for some good channels to follow, right? Well you're in luck because we've had a chance to play around a bit and already have some channels up and running. 

Kevin, Bla1ze and I all created out own personal channels that you can follow, and of course we have an official CrackBerry channel as well. While each of us will send out updates for plenty of random things, we'll keep the CrackBerry channel straight up BlackBerry with news, updates and all kinds of BlackBerry-filled goodness. 

If you're in on the beta (Details soon) you can subscribe to our channels by searching the PIN below within BBM Channels

  • Official CrackBerry: C00012B19
  • Kevin: C00010BC5
  • Bla1ze: C00015DD7
  • Adam: C000184EE
  • Michelle: C0001B3B5
  • DJ: C00024E24
  • Simon: C000E48A7
  • Alicia: C000FE2DE

After you've downloaded it, tap the three lines on the left in the BBM app. Look for Channels in the menu. Tap that and then search either by name eg "BlackBerry" or a celebrity or sports team for example or by code such as the examples above.

How do you install to handheld?

Posted via CB10

Paintedeyes

for BB10 devices you need to connect it to a PC and install it that way. the download is an .exe file that installs it to your phone.

Michelle Haag

Download to PC. Plug in BB via USB. Click .exe file. Follow instructions from there. It will install automagically.

Lol I like "automagically"

Posted via CB10 & loving it!

Tried to add your channel, got an error.

PeterRei

I cant't remember a tome I was excited about tech like now. Great! Who cares about BB10 for the PlayBook now? (I know some out there will kill me for that)

BBGary

I do care about BB10 for PB, but damn.. i didn't expect to that much from today and there are 3 more days to follow of BB Live

Maxey05

I just installed this and it's seriously awesome! I'm so excited for the future of BlackBerry!

yourpoison

Is this like instagram?

Posted via CB10

BBGary

Perfect way to say goodbye to all other messaging and sharing platforms. Never used actively Twitter or FB, but definitely going to use this one.

MLE724

BBM Channel PIN: C000422F3 Just taking this for a spin. Bear with me as I get the hang of it.

Michelle Haag

If you want to follow me, my channel ID is C0001B3B5!

Yandar

For anybody else who scanned Michelle's QR code, you MUST browse channels then hide the keyboard and hit scan to join on the bottom of the screen. The normal BBM scanner does NOT work for it.

Michelle Haag

Good to know, thanks for the tip! :)

knighty2112

Was wondering how you did it. Sent an invite via BBM by mistake first!

I have joined the beta and it looks like quite an interesting idea. It will be interesting how well this would port across to the future cross-platform BBM

jrsc109

Is there a directory of channels? Or even a way to categorise what the channels are about.
I think this is something that will become necessary, otherwise it will be almost impossible to find what you're looking for.

jet parker

Very dope it could rival instagram

Really, it would be great if you can post the QR Codes that can be scanned to join the channels ;)
Thanks.

Jonathank

Wait these are the channels to get us started? Be serious CB. Those channels you posted would make anyone go insane because they are boring.. should have put USA Today, Maxima, NBA, Dogs, Quotes, OMG Facts channels that would interest people NOT just BlackBerry news people like other things other than BlackBerry

paulomurteira

Dogs, do you love them? Then follow and join DOGS Channel C0003E870.
Also send your Dog's best photos to our em@il BBMDGSCHANNEL@gmail.com and we'll post them.
