FCC to Kill Sports Blackout Rule

Sports fans may be rejoicing soon, as the federal government does away with a nearly 40-year-old rule designed to keep fans going to games instead of watching them on television. Later this week, the FCC is expected to kill what’s known as the sports blackout rule — a restriction that prevents pay-TV providers such as cable and satellite from airing local games if the local stadiums didn’t sell out seats. #tech
