Welcome to Vodafone Community

Mobile Broadband

Video, music and other passes

3: Seeker

Sorry if this has been answered already, had a wee Search but didn't see anything. Just a curious question, if I had all the passes and had either mobile broadband or put my phone on a hotspot and then connected my pc, Xbox\ps4 and roku\apple tv to the hotspot or mobile broadband, then accessed one of the services the passes cover through one of those devices. Would the passes still work?

 

An simpler way to put it, if I have the video pass and have a hotspot on my phone with a pc\console connected to it and try to watch Netflix on one of those devices, does the pass still work and cost 0 data?

 

Cheers for any info

That's certainly my understanding - if you have a particular pass you can access those services from your phone via wifi or whatever without using any Vodafone data. If you are using mobile data, then the very precisely defined things will be covered by the "endless data" but any usage which fell outside the definition would be deducted from your regular data allowance. 

I'm posting from a small phone just now, but will try to find chapter and verse once I have a bit more elbow room.

Well, I've had a good search around, but failed to find the "unless of course you're using wifi" that I remember reading. Perhaps it's explicitly stated in the info about Voxi, which is a similar product.

I think that does have to be the case, but all the information that I'm aware of is to be found in the following, which are worth checking through in any case for the details of the product.

Was chatting to an adviser earlier, this is what he said:

 

"f you get a new mobile broadband device with video pass added on to it, you can connect it to any of your streaming device and can watch video and it will be covered under video pass."

 

Now at the time i was talking about a new sim, hence him mentioning a new mobile broadband device. I wouldn't take this as gospel, i've yet to try it out. but it does sound promising!

@Orwell When using your Vodafone Pass from your phone, you can tether to another mobile phone, tablet or MiFi device, and use your endless data from the apps.

Tethering to other devices such as a video game console, TV, or through a smart device isn't included in the Vodafone passes.

You can find further clarification on our site.

Hope this helps
