    I have a couple of channels that I run and now it seems after I've upgraded to BBM 10.3 I receive comment notifications directly to the hub. It is a welcomed feature but I have no way to turn it off. There are no options from the channels settings nor the main notification settings. If anyone does know how to manage this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Favorited Channels will produce bbm notifications & alerts in the hub. Doesn't appear to be any setting to mute though...

    I'd expect it to be controlled in the notification system settings under the apps where bbm and bbm groups are... they seem to have overlooked adding the ability to adjust the notifications for it.

    You can hide the channels updates on the Update tab on BBM. When you press and hold on the channel, a side icon shows up on the bottom right that looks like an eye. When you hit it the channel hides away. It sucks that the other way was gone after 10.3

    The updates on the update tab are not the issue. The notifications cannot be turned off or adjusted.

    Dam I am really disliking this BBM 10.3 update because of this change with the hub integration and now option to turn it off. Does any one have the bar file to the previous version of BBM 10.2 before the 10.3 update?
    I really want to down grade from 10.3

    I think there was another thread requesting that. Do a search, maybe they have it.

    I have searched and even opened one up but all I get is the BBM bar file for 10.2.1.47 which I have downloaded it but it doesn't have channels in it. The one I'm looking for I think is BBM 10.2.25. 10 .

    This "feature" is a pain in the derriere. It was driving me crazy. I had to turn off bbm in the hub and turn off alerts for bbm, which makes bbm ineffective as a communication tool. The work around is to put bbm in silent mode, turning off LED also, and then change the notification settings for each of your contacts. I don't know who was so short sighted as to design it this way, but all I can say is that they must not be very active on channels.

    Here's what I did to down grade to BBM10.2
    1st- I side loaded the BBM bar file for 10.2.1.47
    2nd- I went to BlackBerry Beta Zone app & down loaded the BBM channels app which is BBM 10.2.25.68
    Now all is well as it was before the BBM 10.3 update . I will stay away from BBM 10.3 until they allow the channels integration with the HUB to be disabled. Hope this helps any one out there who wants to down grade to BBM10.2 with channels

    Another easier workaround is to un favourite all channels. From what I've seen, bbm only alerts you for channels you have favourited.

    The above is true. BBM Channel notifications only show in the Hub when the channels are favourited. Found it useful for some, but not others. The Olympics channel was driving me nuts with photos when I wish they displayed results. However, it's nice to get CrackBerry Channel news pushed to the hub so I don't have to refresh the app every second to satisfy my addiction.

    I would love to be able to adjust the notification tone for channels compared to just a regular Bbm.

    When a contact sends me a message it should not have the same sound as a channel update.

    I hope to see this in an update soon.
