Why are some NHL, MLS, MLB, NBA, NFL, CFL games blacked out?

Frustrating, isn’t it? We completely understand. However, our mandate doesn’t allow us to intervene in these situations. The decisions to black out some games are made when the stations buy the rights to broadcast games from the league. Sports teams and leagues operate under something called regional rights, where one team owns a territory and doesn’t let other teams’ games broadcast in their area. We advise you to contact the league, streaming service and/or the station, to voice your concerns. It’s in their interest to keep you happy.
