As you know, BBM Channels is still in beta but there are already plenty of users. There are lots of communities, brands and businesses making use of it and it really does have huge potential. I am a massive user of BBM Channels are as more and more interesting channels pop up, my subscribed channel numbers is slowly racking up.

A favorite feature of many users, be it the channel owner or the subscribers to the channel, is the Chat feature. This has proven to be quite useful, even more so when a channel owner can set the hours of availability. This Chat feature can be utilized in many ways and one channel owner has found an awesome way of making use of it. VP Records has teamed up with BlackBerry and will be opening their chat this coming Monday 7th October for subscribers to be able to chat with Reggae artist, Gyptian. There is also the opportunity to win some goodies too.

Gyptian is already a BlackBerry fan and has been rocking a BlackBerry Z10 and has recently got a Q10 in preparation for the channel chat.

The Live Chat will take place on Monday 7th October at 4:30pm GMT / 11:30am EST / 5:30pm CET. If you'd like to chat with Gyptian don't forget to subscribe to the VP Records Channel C0003E8B3

This is certainly a great way to utilize BBM Channels, it would be great to see even bigger artists jump on the BBM Channels band wagon once it comes out of beta.

If you haven't tried BBM Channels yet, you can join the beta program via BlackBerry Beta Zone.

I wish they had a better way to search for new channels and/or look at existing channels. They could also benefit from a grouping of similar channels (ie a sports theme, photo/artistry, music, clubs, celeb entertainment, etc) to make it easier to decipher what's available.

Oh, man. When are they going to release channels to the public? Tired of waiting already. And no, I don’t want to do beta or side loading.

Although I agree with you in principle you should give it a go. Its not difficult and it's worth it.

Indeed ... this alone should help. Gyptian is still in a niche style of music but he is at the TOP of anyone's game within that genre and is enjoying life.

You're able to download it on BB10 using an app from BBW called Beta Zone.

I like using it but I think it's getting released officially when bbm music comes out of beta.

So basically when Blackberry themselves come out of beta. Everything they do or release seems to be beta and never go public.

Lol!

to get the BBM Channels, you can simply:
1 Register at the BlackBerry BetaZone website
2 go to BlackBerry World and install the Beta Zone app
3 from the Beta Zone app, download the BBM Beta programme (which contains the BBM Channels).

Less than 7 minutes for all that.

Yeah man..

Nice to see a fellow Jamaican using BB. BlackBerries were once huge here in Jamaica but we all knew what happened. Keeping hopeful that we shall rise again. Looking forward to the chat

BBM Channels are so addictive. Now I hardly find any time for Web surfing, tv or Facebook. If you have not already, download channels right away. It is so easy to download now with the help of beta app.

And don't wait for it to come out of beta. Like everything BlackBerry, it will take forever.

I love this sentence:
"Gyptian is already a BlackBerry fan and has been rocking a BlackBerry Z10 and has recently got a Q10 in preparation for the channel chat."

Which brand has a smartphone 2013 with a keyboard, if not BlackBerry ! #win

Channels has potential for sure! It will be interesting to see how BlackBerry markets this goodie.

BBM channels is bound to fail. Nobody is interested in it.

Blackberry isn't going to survive. My S4 is so much better than your. Z30.

Brian Persaud

If your s4 is so much better then why are you here?

Rame Khaleel

BBM beta zone is for all BB10 users just download the APP ( Beta zone app ) from the BB world and open it and install BBM Channel

Xander99

Holy crap, I'm so getting a Z30 now!

eunoia1995

Since I downloaded this my alarm clock does not sound. This happen to anybody else? Know a fix for it? Uninstalled beta zone hoping that would do the trick, but it didn't :-( and all my settings are fine, unchanged)
