The blackout rules are pretty complex, and vary from sport-to-sport. This is whether you have satellite TV, cable, or neither. Specific to satellite TV, however, are the regional sports packages listed on the main window of this page. You should know that, as a general rule, most professional sporting events carried by the regional sports channels are subject to blackout outside the local market. If you are a big pro sports fan, don't get this package assuming you'll be able to flip around to every game in the country --- you'll be staring at a lot of blank screens.
