6. Accessing RLH 

RLH Content is available for access on a free, pay-per-view or subscription basis, depending on the content. We determine what Content is available to each User with our content partners, and we may change the basis for, technical features of, or access permissions for, particular Content at our discretion. 

Special events or one-off Content which we provide on a pay-per-view basis may be subject to special restrictions or terms. RLH Content which we supply on a free basis may be subject to technical or access restrictions we specify such as Standard Definition (SD) format, watch time limitations and real-time access only with no download (time shifting) capability. 

Where relevant, the cost of any Content will be clearly displayed on RLH along with any restrictions based on your User type. Where Content is downloadable, we may erase that material from your device after a period of time or otherwise at our discretion. Some or all RLH Content may be unavailable outside the country in which you became a User due to content access restrictions imposed by third party content providers. 

The quality of RLH Content may vary from device to device and may be affected by factors including location, device, connection speed and your mobile network. RLH Content is provided in a variety of formats. High Definition (HD) capability and higher is subject to technical restrictions, your User type and our arrangements with our content providers. 

You can register up to five (5) devices on your RLH service at any time. These can be a combination of the RLH native apps and RugbyLeagueHub.com. If you want to access the RLH service on a new device and you have already registered 5 devices, then you will need to de-register one of the existing devices. 

You can only use one of your registered devices to watch live and pay per view content on RLH at any one time. If you sign in to RLH on another registered device you will be logged out of all other devices. 

To deregister a device sign into RLH on the new device and it will display the registered devices used by your account. Choose the device that you no longer want to use and select de-register. You can then register the new device and start watching on your new device.
