NFL ’11 for iPad Adds Audio Pass for Live in App Play by Play
Verizon Wireless customers with iPhones or certain Android devices can get access to live streaming audio play-by-play of every NFL game through the NFL Mobile app for Verizon, but there was no option for the iPad. Until now. With it’s latest update, the NFL 11 for iPad app has added integration for Audio Pass, the NFL’s digital product that lets you listen to live audio play-by-play of NFL games online.
Audio Pass costs $29.99 for an entire season subscription, or $9.99 for a monthly subscription.
For current NFL 11 iPad app users, you simply need to update the app to find the new Audio Pass Link in the upper right hand corner. If you already have an Audio Pass subscription, use your NFL.com credentials to login through the app to get Audio Pass access. If you don’t have an Audio Pass subscription, you can get one through an in-app purchase.
Note: Typically, the NFL will reduce the price of it’s digital products (like Audio Pass) at the midway point of the season. So, if you don’t expect to use the app to listen to games during the early part of the season, you may want to wait for the price reduction.
I’ve purchased Audio Pass in the past, and it’s a great product, but I passed on it for this season since I have the NFL Mobile app through Verizon Wireless which already provides streaming audio play-by-play. The ability to port the Audio Pass subscription to the iPad is a killer feature addition for many iPad owners who don’t otherwise have the option to listen to live NFL games on a mobile device.
