    to enable the download of blackberry news you have to trick your playbook into thinking its located in the US to do that you will need to go to Fresh Proxy List. Sorted by Proxy Anonymity. Page 1 and choose a USA proxy then go to your wifi connection choose the proxy tab and put the info in there which will then make your playbook thinks its registered in america and allow all US downloads ok.

    You have to create a manual wi-fi connection and put the Proxy details in.

    I am in Australia and I have problem with doing this, it says Install Error: 0003-0006.

    Edit: Once I deleted the Proxy details it re-installed fine.

    BlackBerry news is a great app

    NewsPile is also very good if you can't get BB news.

    The other option is to find the .bar file; put your Playbook into developer mode and sideload Blackberry News. That's what I did and it works fine. There are detailed instructions on how to do it in the forums if you do a search. I couldn't get the proxy method to work. The good news is that I'm in the UK and have Blackberry News working well on the Playbook so you should be able to too.
