FCC Ends Blackout Rule!

By ChargerGirl Cindi

Gone are the days of Blackout Watch!  The FCC voted today to end the sports blackout rule.

The 39-year-old sports blackout rule was voted down by a unanimous five to zero vote.

This is great news for those of us who live in smaller cities with stadiums that hold 70,000 people.  This is a great day for sports fans everywhere!

The FCC has not made the sellout/blackout rule disappear, apparently NFL teams can still enforce the rule.

Woo Hoo!
