Blackberry Bold and Steaming Audio Media

Hi,

Just got a Blackberry Bold and have the following problem:

Has anybody been able to stream media, specifically WMA formats that would typically come from listening live on radio station websites?

I can see Youtube and that sort of thing. Just can't listen to radio station feeds.

Thanks,
Congo

Try FlyCast they have versions for iPhone and BB. Broadcast & Internet Only Station selections for WiFi, 3G, and EDGE speeds. May not be WMV but if all your after is streaming radio do you really care what type of wrapping the content is in?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I've got Flycast working now but it only carries certain stations and typically from the US. I want to listen the station I normally listen to on the radio.

I tried Flycast -- it's awesome -- but, yes, it doesn't have any Canadian stuff. If someone finds a (esp. free) solution on the Blackberry Bold, please post.
