BitBop for BlackBerry - No longer in beta and ready to rock.

We covered the beta of Bitbop not too long and now, glad to say that it has passed it's beta testing phase and moved into a full on roll out of services. Bitbop brings a lot to the table for US customers who are looking for great media content on the go. Headed up by the folks at Fox Mobile, the wide array of streaming content is something a lot of users having been asking of big media for a while now. Shows such as 30 Rock, American Dad and Family Guy are all available to view as well as many others from Global partners which Fox has teamed up with.

With the service now out of beta Bitbop has had to put a price tag on their offerings which, has turned out to not be that bad at all. A free trial is available to BlackBerry users wherein after the trial a subscription model has been established for $9.99/mnth which allows for unlimited streaming and temporary downloads. Full press release is available after the jump.
