I believe I'm outside of the sports blackout area. Why am I still getting blacked out from games?
You may have been blacked out from a game even if you seemed to be outside the blackout area. This can happen if a TV station near you is showing the game. Unfortunately, we do not control blackouts of sporting events. In our agreements to carry games produced by various leagues and associations, we are subject to clauses that keep us from carrying events near where the game is played, aired or broadcast locally. In some cases, if a game is blacked out from certain national channels, you may be able to see it on another national channel, or on one of your local broadcast channels.
