I know blackouts are frustrating, Jdawg4! We have information about how different sports blackouts work on our Sports Blackout Restrictions page.
While we offer these channels, we do not own them and the agreements with broadcasters and channel owners sometimes require us to blackout sporting events. These blackout rules are controlled by the leagues, sports associations, and networks that purchase the rights to the broadcasts.
Blackouts on regional channels happen when a national channel such as ESPN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, etc., purchase the rights to the game. In these cases, the event will not be available to any regional channel within that team's territory unless a regional channel purchases the rights to the event.
