Can anyone tell me why I can't access bbc/iplayer or bbc news video on my bold? Orange don't seem to be very product aware on this phone!

Yes, can someone please tell us how to do this! Is it something to do with Javascript? I have enabled mine already.

Re: bbc/iplayer

I too like yourselves tried accessing the BBC iPlayer and enabled all Java Script settings but this was to no avail. Having done some reasearch on the net today it has now become apparent that the iPlayer will not work on the Bold or any Blackberry for that matter.


They have released a version of it for the iPhone however...pretty **bleep** infuriating if you ask me.

Can't see anywhere that says a version for the Blackberry is due for release soon either.


If anyone knows any different can they please update.

They say that they are developing for more mobile platforms.

Re: bbc/iplayer

I too find this maddening but have just found this page:- http://www.berry365.com/tag/bbc-on-blackberry/


Currently only works via wifi but at least it is something.


Try www.bbc.co.uk/mobile/live from your BOLD


Sometimes it seems to give an error message but it is only beta.
