Thanks for the update @Craigh6125 and @3002, apologies that you are still experiencing the issue.

Once that is done, go to the Live Pass App. In the App, go to 'More" on right hand of menu, select My NRL Account and once again log-in through Google. 

After that, restore your purchase in the NRL App. 

 

Go to 'More' > 'My Account' > 'NRL Live Pass' then you should see the option to restore or purchase, if you select the restore option and follow the prompts to
restore your purchase. Once complete, you should be able to access your live pass.

That didnt work, but the procedure is flawed as i could not get a restore purchase option no matter what action i took. Uninstalled app, reloaded through the nrl account with updated details. Details you require:

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

I have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled this & the Nrl Fantasy app no less than 8 times. Yes the system gives me a 403 error & is unable to find my account. I have no trouble signing in to the tippings option through your app but the Fantasy option has never worked & inevitably my system shuts down. It seems it can not identify me & it keeps looping. Obviously Youi with thier new platform, which sux incidentally, has a conflict with your app.

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Hey @abcdefghijkl

 

Thanks for your post and the links to NRL Fantsy and Tipping are links to the NRL Website. 

 

If these links don't work in the App, please try going to the website directly here: 

 

https://fantasy.nrl.com/

 

https://tipping.nrl.com/

 

If this doesn't work for you, then this may be a problem that you're experiencing with the website.

 

Let me know how you go.

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

I am experiencing the same issues as others.  I haven't been able to access the games either since start of the season.  The latest update has already been done so unless there's another one since Friday then there aren't any that i can find. It doesn't happen on my phone it is only on the tablet for some reason so come on please fix it

DJ28
Level 1: Cadet

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

I also wanted to point out that i contacted the NRL app about the issue and from the reply i received they have nothing to do with why the live games aren't able to be seen it is a problem with Telstra as they are the ones who supply the access to it. There were no problems like this last year so Telstra what have you done between then and now. Like i previously said i can access the games on my phone but not my tablet which is a bit odd. If i go to a live game via the Foxtel app on the tablet it plays fine but then i am using up data which then defeats the point of being rewarded as a Telstra customer with the offer of having the NRL Pass for free. Stop making excuses and just get it going or maybe try being honest with your customers and tell us the real reason for the problem which would stop people becoming so annoyed and frustrated

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Thanks for the post DJ28.

 

It is not good to read of the issues you are having when trying to view the NRL live streams on your tablet. Can I please confirm a few details so I can assist further?

 

- How did you sign up to the Live Pass (In-App through Google Play or iTunes, Telstra mobile customer)

- On your tablet, is it registered to the Telstra network or are you accessing through Wi-Fi
- What tablet are you using and what OS is installed

- What phone are you using and what OS is installed

Thanks for the reply and feedback str8crazyme, I understand the frustration and inconvenience. 

 

I can confirm that we’ve completed a live video modification that we think might be the cause of the streaming issues. If you try streaming the Cowboys vs Panthers tomorrow night and still have issues, please reply with the following details so we can investigate further:

 

Do you encounter an error message? If so, what is it specifically?

Hi @Boofhead2

We’ve pushed out a fix for users who have cancelled their in-app subscription with their end date in the future.

 

Can you please un-install then re-download the App and try to restore your subscription again.

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Hi DJ28,
Surprise, surprise. Round 4 of the Telstra NRL competiton and I am still getting the "external display not allowed" error when I try to watch the live stream on my Telstra branded, Telstra Buzz phone (locked to the Telstra network).
I have the latest version of the Telstra app (uninstalled and re-installed 5 minutes before the game).
The Channel Nine commentators are still saying that "Telstra customers can stream all NRL games, live and data free".
If only they knew the truth!

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Hi Boofhead2,
I agree. The 2017 version of the app worked as advertised.
Logically, you would think that they would revert to the 2017 version of the app until they can solve the numerous problems with the 2018 version.

I am an iPhone user and having similar problems , haven’t been able to watch a single game yet . I don’t have a subscription I am a Testra customer and usually get it free like previous years . Not this year , all I was getting was a 2 minute preview then a please subscribe message , but now I can’t even get that just an “oops something went wrong “ error 0 message . It’s a pretty sad situation for a company with fading credibility.

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Hey @Pethai

 

Sorry for the trouble accessing your live pass and I would be more than happy to help you with this. Firstly, it sounds like you have not registered for a subscription at this stage, which is why you are seeing the 2 minute preview.

 

To redeem your free live pass, please follow these steps on your Telstra Mobile:

 

- Uninstall the AFL App from your device

- Re-download the AFL App from the store

- Turn Off Wi-Fi on your phone

- It will automatically detect your eligibility if you're connected to the Telstra Mobile Network

- If successful you should just select Go Back and be ready to watch.

 

If you have any trouble doing this, please let me know.

Re: NRL Live App Android Update

Error 403: I have not been able to stream a single game this year. Have cleared cache, cookies, app data, reinstalled dozens of times, disabled virus protection, and still get error 403 anytime I try and log in or hit the account icon & or redeem live pass. Even tried installing from within my google account subscription. Done all the subscription & app updates you speak of. I get the same error on both my Galaxy S5 & S7 phones. Gave up and unsubscribed and all it did was stop my auto subscription. I have paid $90 for nothing to date and it remains current until next March. My google account tells me that my subscription is active but the app won't let me sign in without error 403 which stops me from going any further. Please update me with a real fix when its available or at least let me know that there is a compatibility issue with my phone or my provider (Optus).
