Open BBM Channel from Air app

Hi,

 

Is it possible to open a BBM Channel directly from an Air app, so users can subscribe to it?

Thank you.

No, currently this method of invocation is not supported from any platform, not just AIR.  It is on our road map though.

So the only method to subscribe is that users open BBM and add the BBM Channel pin manually?

They can do that or scan the channels bar code.  Invoking to add or open a channel is planned, just not there yet.
