It is legal and you can only access it via US VPN

That does not make it illegal. Against Sling TV's T&C yes. No different to accessing US Netflix content in NZ.

the $20 package, how does that stack up against amazon?

 

im finding amazon to have a lot of content but mostly old and not high quality movies etc. even the channels dont get a lot of fresh content.

 

also is rugby and nrl played on the $20 package?

Wiggum, he said it is LEGAL, not illegal :)

 

 

 

Slingtv is an american service, so I highly doubt it has any rugby or NRL, as those aren't popular in the US.

I'm saying the service itself is legal, as in it's a legitimate service for Americans

 

Of course, accessing it via a US VPN is another matter

 

I trialled it awhile ago, and ESPN3 had Super Rugby

Was the rugby in 1080p?

I didn't check the resolution, this was through the Sling TV app on the Nvidia Shield TV if that's of any use

 

It was definitely in HD
