Is DIRECTV sports programming affected by blackouts?

Blackout restrictions are a factor in every programming distribution service. Blackouts are defined by the leagues — not by DIRECTV — and determined according to who has the rights to broadcast a given game in a given area. To learn more, visit directv.com/blackouts.
