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.
