Watch NBC prime TV free on your BlackBerry Storm

BlackBerry Storm video

Everything looks beautiful on the BlackBerry Storm. At WES, many of the booths were demo’ing their products on the Storm because the combination of a big screen and smooth UI, makes for the best way to showcase your application. Video is stunning on this device and I found a good post explaining how to get NBC prime television streamed to your device for free.

Just visit http://m.nbc.com/fullepisodes.shtml

If the link does not work, visit m.nbc.com

Shows include The Office, 30 Rock, Crusoe, Friday Night Lights, Heroes, Kath and Ki, Knight Rider, Lipstick Jungle, My Own Worst Enemy, The Biggest Looser and more.

    Does the browser need to be in Explorer or FF mode?

    Why not on VZW, switching from AT&T and my iPhone was a huge mistake.

    This would be great if Verizon didn’t f*ck things up. Maybe NBC should make an App instead, like YouTube.

    Got 403 – forbidden error also, I am on a Verizon storm w/.141 software using both Opera and BB Browser.. Maybe more research is needed PRIOR to posting articles that say “it works on the STORM” when it does not work on all of them!

    So let me get this straight….

    WES, a US symposium, is showing off NBC’s shows on the Storm.

    The only US carrier of the Storm is Verizon.

    Verizon does not allow it’s users to do what they’re showing off at WES?

    Brutal.

    I can’t either on VZW. I though unlimited data plan meant unlimited, not limited…. Hummmmm…. I guess I have to read the fine print in my contract a little better.

    Hey guys, after seeing this, I think you can get it to work, but you are going to need to use your WAP browser and NOT your BlackBerry Browser.
    If you have your homescreen shortcuts turned on, just press W and it will be your WAP browser.
    It’s working on an 8900 when using the WAP browser…Won’t work with the BlackBerry Browser…Gives the same error.

    I have had a link to this for over a month… it used to work. Seems like Verizon blocked the links once it became more popular.

    That is terrible if they did… but the quality wasn’t all that great anyway

    It wasn’t always like this. It used to work on my VZW Storm. Then one day I started getting these damned error messages. Does anyone know exactly what happened?

    So, we should stop complaining because it works just fine on a carrier we don’t have the option of using. Sorry, but I seem to be unable to live vicariously through your enjoyment. Funny. Doesn’t work for me. Stop posting.

    VZW is blocking it? Can’t believe “The Network” would do that to us. Oh wait yes I can. Can you hear me now? This is worse than that time I invented that time machine. Oh wait flashbacks only work on family guy and they are usually only funny in my head. I bet if we had wi-fi on our devices we could circumvent this. Oh wait, VZW doesn’t like wi-fi on the devices. This should shut-up all those you don’t need wifi because the network is so awesome people. Stupid VZW.

    Because they aren’t blocking it (yet at least). Its not Verizon. Its the NBC website and how its identifying the device.

    I just got it to work! Not sure which of these settings it was, but I went into Settings, then Advanced, then Browser and changed my Browser Default to BlackBerry Browser. Next I opened the browser, opened Options, went into Browser Configuration, and changed the browser from Internet Browser to BlackBerry Browser, Clicked Menu, selected Save. I then closed the browser, reopened it, navigated to a video on NBC’s mobile site and VOILA! She works!

    Guess it’s not Verizon (Unless they changed something in the past half hour while I was fooling with this). I guess it was likely the coding on the site’s end.

    UPDATE: Some videos still give an error. But it’s different than the original. It’s not an access rights error, it’s more like a corrupt video error, or perhaps a codex error. It does open the media player (which we weren’t getting before), and then I get the error… sometimes!

    I think the BlackBerry Browser only exists on your device if you’re a BES user — at least, that was the only time I had that browser option on my vzw Storm.
