On January 15th, AT&T and ESPN announced a distribution agreement that extends access to Disney's lineup of sports, news, and entertainment content to " ... U-Verse TV customers across televisions, computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and internet-enabled televisions
." It also notes: "ESPN3 will also be available to any residential AT&T High Speed Internet customer, across screens and devices

When using an iPad on my U-Verse internet connection (or AT&T Wireless iPad data plan), the ESPN3 site won't let me access the streaming content.
(1) Direct Safari to espn3.com (»espn.go.com/watchespn/index)
(2) A browser platform check is performed and ESPN reports that the WatchESPN app should be used.
(3) Launch WatchESPN app, but it doesn't accept U-Verse account credentials.
The press release didn't mention when
the new U-Verse features would be available. The iPad WatchESPN app appears to need updates.
Is there a method where one can access ESPN3 content on an iPad?
