Watch CREED On your BlackBerry Tonight

* Update Again - We still might get a link for the mobile app tonight, but best bet now if you really want to see the concert is watch the stream for free on your computer at rockpit.com *

* Update - OK, if the rockpit.mobi site isn't working, apparently you can go to wirelessconcerts.com and you should be able to gain access from there. Note - apparently the Tour and Storm are not yet supported. Fail. Keep in mind, this is kinda whack. At the wirelessconcerts.com url I can't find any link to download the mobile app nor use the coupons we were provided. I guess this is a beta / first attempt and it's not quite running so smooth. If you get it figured out post it the comments, or just bail on tonight's attempt and we'll try this again. I really wanted to see what a live streaming concert on a BB would look like. D'oh! *

* Update - 7:27pm EST: The mobile site still isn't up yet. I've emailed the promoters in hopes of getting a direct link to download the mobile app - once installed that's all that should be needed to stream the concert live. Hopefully they get back to me with that shortly. If not, hopefully they'll give us double the licenses to their next concert if this doesn't pan out tonight. I'm really curious to see how this looks on my Bold! *

The press release below goes over all the details of what's going on, so give it a read. And if you want to take in the CREED concert tonight via your BlackBerry (pretty cool concept!) then we have 250 FREE licenses for the show. Download the Rockpit mobile app and use the code CREED2009. It's first come, first serve, so once it's been used 250 times that's it. If you miss out on the coupon above but still want to watch, licenses cost $14.99. The Rockpit.mobi site is JUST going live as I type (DNS still propogating through so you might have to wait a bit before it goes live and starts working) so have patience and keep refreshing. In the meantime, you can visit the rockpit.com site for more info. Enjoy the show!

i wrote in the post above... they just flipped the switch on the mobile site... it's still propogating. New it wasn't up yet when I posted but figured it's no sense learning about the concert two seconds before it starts so got it up early. Have patience and just refresh. Hopefully should be up soon.

no offsense taken!  i just hope the mobile site gets working soon... this is taking a while and the show isn't that far away. preshow kicks off in 1h52m.  i really want to try to stream and see how the quality looks

I tried on myBB didn't work and when I tried online it didn't work for the .mobi link either but it does allow me to register and see it live online which isn't as seeing it on my BB- which is the only reason I was interested (as crazy as it sounds)
So this isn't working and on their site there's no where to type in a code it seems free if you just register your email address

..for the copycat asshat singers that tried to emulate that annoying voice.
YYYYYUUUUUAAARRRRRR!

Title says it all really!!!I mean of all the phones not to have you pick the storm with the biggest and easiest to see screen?? Seems like a real gimmick here guys

why would you market this to "blackberry smartphones" knowing that it would NOT work for those of us that have a Storm or Tour, 2 of the newest BB phones on the market. gotta love promoters that don't have their ducks in a row.

exactly...this is stupid...so much for watching it on my Tour>>>> Freakin idiots...cant believe it...they know that these two phones are the newest ones....im not surprised about the Tour as much as i am about the Storm...gosh..

Just tried to download the OTA app to view the stream, and i get a Error - 907 - Invalid COD.

So looks like it definately wont work on the storm.

Oh and BTW, i thought i would get an option for the Coupon after entering in my details, So i just played fill in the blank with name and addy and Credit card number, and um yeah, It went through and said thank you for your purchase and a receipt LOL!!! Thats how i got the mobile download link just to fail cuz its a storm.

Im watching on my PC now, pretty good stream on there. Would have been nice to try this out on the BB (as I am actually a fan of Staind and yes Creed :P ), but I dont think paying $15 to test beta software that may or may not work is really fair.

yea it was slow on the 8900 so i popped on the wbesite and its not bad. seen staind so many time.hometown for them. not bad though

I love Creed - thanks so much for the info. couldn't get it to work on my 8900 so I improvised, got it streaming via wifi on my netbook and plugged in speaker....all while working...hee hee. TY

Thanks for the constant updates its ok u tried ur best- THAT'S WHY I LOVE CRACKBERRY.COM

CUSTOMER CARE! I mean blogger care lol

Cmon guys - this stuff is hardly seen here in India. Let me show-off blackberry and its Add-ons here in India. give me one!
