how to use bbm channels

Hi,

 

in the keynote there was talk about bbm channels, and the press release states that we can 'connect and share' using channels.

 

Problem is, I can't for the life of me figure out how this bbm app works.  The only thing I can find is that I can connect to someone, not to a channel.

 

So, how do I follow a channel?  And if I need a newer OS version, then why doesn't any of the press releases say this?

 

Using Z10 with 10.0.10.690

The current version Channels is only included in the BetaZone upgrade.

Have you made that upgrade yet?

Using duckduckgo I found the "beta zone", never heard of that before you mentioned that as something to use!

 

Thanks

Ah, I'm out of luck; you need Windows (which is a little to expensive to buy just for this)

it says

  Wired Install ONLY (PC - Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher)
