    Hello,

    I'm using iPad 2 (iOS 4.3.3)


    So I downloaded NBA.TV app from the UK app store and it installed correctly. However when I try to watch the games I get a "Geo Checking" message and then error: "You are in a blackout area and cannot view the game from this location"

    -I have tried LocationSpoofer and it worked for one hour and then stopped.
    -Tried again and didn't work. Used FakeLocation but that didn't work
    -Using a VPN for UK but thats not working
    -LocationHolic isn't going either

    Can anyone suggest what I can do to watch the games on the iPad without the Blackout BS?

    Thanks!

    having the same problem too.
    But I do live in SF, and I want to watch warriors games.
    I tried fakelocation, locationholic, location spoofer, none of those work.
    I wonder does anyone know how to hack the blackout, I mean i am willing to pay the NBA league pass, but I want to watch my local team on iphone too

    This states that the app uses your public IP to determine your location. Try to use another device as a VPN client and tether that to your iPad. I've been able to use pdanet on my iPhone, connected to wifi, to act as a VPN router, broadcasting a wireless signal while connected to wireless. I didn't test with league pass because my trial has expired, but it works for the TWCable tv app. I would give that a shot..

    I didn't mean use the TWC app. I meant like use my same VPN methodology to try and circumvent the blackout restrictions...

    Anyway you'd be willing to share an account? I'd love to have the ability to watch it. Willing to donate something in return. Please let me know.

    Thanks :)

    LocationSpoofer worked great for me on the NBA.TV app from UK
