Are blackouts enforced with NFL SUNDAY TICKET?

We're required to follow game availability rules set up by the NFL, CBS, and FOX.

In general, you receive all games outside your local market unless your local FOX or CBS station shows the game.

In special situations, a local station may decide at the last minute to show a different game, in which case we will change the NFL SUNDAY TICKET blackouts when permitted by the NFL. If a local station switches coverage due to a one sided or extra-long game, we will lift the blackouts (when permitted by the NFL) so that you will get the game .

Sports blackouts and game availability are controlled by the leagues, sports associations, and networks that purchase the rights to broadcast individual games. To protect their rights, we must enforce the blackouts and availability mandated by them.
