    If you have Sprint, they do have a TV icon and it does have sports, music,and yes premium channels. You might have hid the icon by mistake. go into hide and bring it back and you should see a shadow of an icon press track pad again to make it hole.

    There is a reason. It is an app offered by a specific provider, not RIM. For instance, I do not have NFL Mobile. That app is only offered to VZW customers, and my provider is AT&T.

    If you want a particular app that only a certain provider offers, you need to have service with that provider.

    You will have to call Virgin Mobile's Tech Support or Customer Service and ask them for the download link for the TV & Radio app for Blackberry.

    They have a specific download link and they can provide you with it.

    I had to request the link before not all their Blackberrys on Bell and Virgin has it pushed for some reason

    Interesting.

    As others have noted, you need to call the carrier and have them direct you. It's a carrier specific thing.

    Also, be sure that you have the proper data plan. That page indicates that it's not available with certain plans.

    Heads-up!
    Not available on the $40 BlackBerry Social Plan or the $15 BlackBerry Social and Email bundles
