Blacked Out games on Lakers Channel in Dallas

Last year I subscribed to the Lakers Channel (1777) when it first became available to discover that the Laker games were blacked out so I immediately cancelled it since it didn't make sense to pay for a channel and not being able to watch the games.  I understand blackout rules apply to customers living in the local area but didn't think they applied to those living in other states as well.

 

Does anyone know if this has changed??

No, it's not going to change. You have subscribe to NBA League Pass to watch out-of-market NBA games.

You can subscribe to NBA League Pass to watch games out of market. If a game is on NBA TV, you may or may not get it on League Pass.

Blackout rules exist to "black out" customers from watching games out of market unless they subscribe to the league's PPV package.

I am aware the NFL has a rule where local fans are "blacked out" from watching on TV if the game is not sold out within a certain amount of time, but IDK if any other league has such a rule.

I know NHL Center Ice is the same way, only out of market games are available, I'm sure it's because of broadcasting agreements leagues have with networks. I looked into subscribing to it, but without my teams games, it had no value to me.

Dmitriy - The HD Premium pack does include rebroadcasts of NHL games. Some people who work evenings have been known to subscribe to this package on whatever provider they have and watch the replays.

I'm sire you know about Roku or NHL.com having Center Ice. Smiley Happy

Dimitriy, your local teams should be on your local RSN, I know here in Dallas the Stars are on Fox Sports and one local station on Saturday night games. Even when the game is on NBCSN or NHL, Fox Sports still boradcasts the game. If NBA is on at the same time then Fox Sport will show it on a alternate channel.
