    Low bandwith works fine on my Curve 8330 picture is kind of small though.
    Medium bandwith throws an error.

    VuiVision is a good concept but has a ways to go before it's ready to be a paid service.
    Their TV service is not ready for prime time.

    eheheheheeee!!!

    I got shut off for the last out of the WS and couldn't reconnect.

    VuiVision is a good concept but has a ways to go before it's ready to be a paid service.


    I received error messages as well, but was able to reconnect after a while. It happened a couple of times and it seems as if it happened during the most exciting parts too.

    I agree........... VuiVision is great, but it does have some tweeking to do before it be a paid service. (Or even a free app. )

    The price does not seem unreasonable.

    I'd agree, if the sound didn't lag and the picture were somewhat clear

    You don't charge for alpha releases. Simple as that, IMHO.

    I believe they have now gone beta. Perhaps they are testing the subscription system. Also 1.99 a month does not sound unreasonable.

    i'll definitely subscribe when a few more channels are offered. TBS, A&E, Discovery, Travel, WB, FOX Reality etc

    Neat idea, just not worth the three dollars a month for what is offered, imo. i don't follow sports so i'm not enticed by football or the World Series.

    i'll be keeping an eye on the program though for sure!

    CB made this APP way to popular, lol. If they made the application with the option to view my local news NBC, CBS, ect....then I wouldn't mind paying for it. I don't need to know what NY local news lol. But NFL sunday on BB is good too. Lol

    Thanks to all the Blackberry and Crackberry.com users who have frequented VuiVision.com over the last four weeks.

    As you can imagine, when we first posted our alpha site to load test our servers we never expected the response that we received.

    It was overwhelming and we tried, to the best of our ability, to reconfigure and grow to meet the massive and growing demand.

    Each day since the initial post on this thread, our web traffic has grown, but so has our costs. To meet the demand of our viewers during the World Series required a massive increase in costs. Costs that were too much to cover under an "advertising-only" business model.

    Servers are expensive, bandwidth is even more expensive. After looking at several business models, and examining what has worked in the past and failed, it was obvious that we had to embrace the subscription model.

    We believe that we offer a valuable service to many, that valuable service is expensive to deliver. At $2.99/month, for both low and medium bandwidth video streams, it seems reasonable. We thought about lower pricing but we could not make the numbers work. We also thought about higher pricing but I am against that because I love "inexpensive" stuff, as I'm sure most of you do too.

    Think about it for a moment, a cup of coffee at starbucks is $2.99. A donut and a coffee at D&D is $2.99.

    The freedom to take programming with you anywhere in the world has got to be worth $2.99/mo.

    We are working with content providers and distributors to enhance our line up and expect to have several more channels to offer shortly.

    Also, we are running a very short promotion for those of you who were with us since day one - if you sign up today you will receive VuiVision for $1.99/mo or $14.99/year - almost 33% off our regular price. We are also working on some promotions with Crackberry.com to offer special pricing. When those are available I'll let you know.

    Thanks to all of you at Crackberry.com.

    What are the chances you will have more than 4 channels and will the crackberry promos be a better cost than this is, and last but not least, what time zone is the feed coming from?

    i think they are going to see a sharp decline in people going to this site. I dont think its ready at all. during the testing phase i was receiving alot of unavailable and losing the stream. the service ran choppy sometimes along with the audio lag. i think this new business plan is going to set them up for failure. i think they should set up a raffle and give out memberships to keep the bandwith low until they are done with the testing phases. yes $2.99 isnt a lot but i cant see anyone paying for a service that we dont know whats going to happen in the near future because its only being tested for now.

    +1 i loved, told everyone about this site but for 2.99$ when its still spotty is a no go for me. maybe when everything gets figured out or most of the big issues, *losing the stream and audio lag* i think are the two worst, i might be back

    Every business loses money at first, Hang10. You can't expect subscribers to finance your trial & error phase. That's just how it is and why most startups get venture capitalists on board.

    I definitely won't pay. You want $3 a month for beta that's inconsistent - Lord knows what you'll want when it's considered v1.0.

    I hope they de-ghettoize their web site if they want people to give them their credit card numbers. Looks like the site was designed back in 1995.
