If you want to know about these problems and how to troubleshoot them, read on!
Before we talk about how you can troubleshoot NOW TV mobile pass not working on iPad, tablet, or phone, it’s imperative to discuss the reasons.
Typically, your NOW TV mobile pass won’t work due to the below-mentioned reasons:
- Device incompatibility
- Old app version
- App-related bugs
- Mobile software-related issues
- Server problems with NOW TV
Each of these problems needs a specific solution, discussed in the next segment if you want your NOW TV mobile pass to work.
Before we jump to the solutions, there is one important thing to note. Some users have complained about their NOW TV mobile pass not showing on app.
However, it’s best to check if you can access the content.
According to NOW TV, users can access the content on the app even if it shows that the mobile pass doesn’t show on the app.
But, if you cannot access any content either, then you should try out the solutions given below.
First of all, it’s imperative to stream your NOW TV content on mobile only. Several users have tried watching content on their TV, tablet, iPad, or laptop, using a mobile pass.
However, that won’t work.
If you’re attempting to stream anything on a device other than a mobile, you won’t be allowed access.
Instead, you will have to buy another subscription that works with TV, laptop, tablets, and iPads.
Although your NOW TV mobile pass should start working instantly, there are instances where it may take time to activate.
So, if you can’t activate NOW TV pass, you can consider waiting for up to 10 days.
NOW TV has stated in their offers that after you have paid for any pass or offer, it will get activated within 10 working days.
Hence, if you have just bought a mobile pass, try waiting for a few days before troubleshooting for any errors.
Sometimes, if there is some software-related issue with your mobile, you may not be able to access NOW TV with your mobile pass.
In this situation, you may try checking if your account is working on another device or not. This way, you can troubleshoot if the problem is with your phone or account.
Here’s how you can log in to the NOW TV app on a new mobile:

- Note that the NOW TV password is case-sensitive. So, add a proper password.
- Finally, check if you can access the content with another device.
There is no proper explanation behind why this solution works but some users have reported its success.
This could be a problem from the NOW TV company’s side. So, it is best to consider resetting your password and checking if your mobile pass works.
