You can but you can't use any of the BT specific players or channels. It will simply download the Talk Talk banners and sync with their servers

You need a BT line to access BTTV through your Youview box, as you would need Virgin Cable to operate a Virgin V6 box. You can however use an Android phone or tablet to watch BT Sport, an amazon Fire TV box or stick to watch BTTV, or a chromecast to cast to your TV.

Can you buy a Monthly pass and watch via Now Tv box, attempting to create an account for Monthly BT Sport, but it stated  

Myemail.com already has a BT account.If you continue and buy BT Sport Monthly Pass, use your existing details to login.  Your password will not change.

Can you by a monthly pass from within your bt account, If so I cannot find it?

You are aware there was absolutrly no need to buy the pass, if you've got bt sport with bt tv you get app & online access included as well

+1

You can access both BT Sport and the NOW TV channels included in your subscription via a web browser or app:

BT Sport:

NOW TV:

Alternatively you could just buy a NOW TV stick and access your content through that when on the move.
