Channel 9 has a Windows Phone 8 app coming…

And it is available in beta now, please check it out and let me know what you think.

So, here you go, if you have a Windows Phone 8 and have any interest in Channel 9 type content:

Just using the app generates telemetry that is useful, but please reply with any direct feedback you have to me and I’ll consolidate.

If you have a Channel 9 account, you can swipe over to the panel marked “More”, pick Settings and sign into your account. This will let you rate videos and add them to your Queue, but otherwise the app is fully functional without signing in.

This is a beta, and we know some features and stability is still missing, so don’t be surprised if you hit a few issues. And if it crashes, we get that data, so your pain is our gain!


Note that we’ve decided to have the wonderful folks at HiddenPineapple publish this Beta as its own app, which means that when we release a final version (which will be a 1st party app, after the code has been transitioned to my team) you won’t be auto-updated…. sorry about that!

  1. Good app some things that should be improved are:

    1. When a select a series like Windows Phone 8 development for absolute beginners I can only see part 35 to 11 in the list.

    2. There should be a way to turn of the background agent/live tile.

    3. Would be nice if the live tile would have a more windows phone like live tile and not iconic. I have no c9 account but the live tile also never changed. What is it supposed to show?

  2. The app is cool. It would be great if you could stream or download audio as well as video. I spend a lot of time commuting and the audio would be a real plus. I am sure thee are others in the same boat.
