Sorry to be bearer of bad news, the nowtv mobile sports pass can only be used with a smartphone and hence the reason you are having trouble using an iPad Tablet with this pass.
Perhaps NowTV need to have a re think of the wording of the title of their mobile sports pass to avoid confusion for customers, if they are not going to permit tablet owners access to this mobile sports pass ?
I am having same problem and only went for this subscription thinking my iPad IS a mobile device? I have a sim card in it and it is mobile, I can take this anywhere with me. I think NOW TV needs to change this or somehow fix this.
Yes, it needs the word ‘phone’ in there, as even a sim-enabled, go-anywhere mobile device like the iPad can’t make phone calls. Not without piggy-backing on an iPhone, anyway.
I wonder if this Pass would work on an iPod Touch, though....
