Can you give me a real-world example of how blackouts work?

Print
Customers in New York will see New York-based professional teams on YES Network HD, MSG, MSG Plus HD, and SportsNet New York HD (local in-market RSNs), such as the Yankees, Brooklyn Nets, Knicks, Rangers, etc. However, they will NOT get professional games on any of the out-of-market RSNs (those outside the New York area).
