PostSubject: Blackouts over?   Fri Jun 10, 2011 6:13 pm

From Aaron Wilson:

Court bars cable operators from blocking access

The FCC decision to bar cable operators from using the so-called terrestrial loophole to block access to regional sports channels, including HD programming, was upheld today by the U.S. Court of Appeals.

After the ruling was handed down, SportsFans.org executive director Brian Frederick issued the following statement:

“Today’s ruling is a victory for sports fans who have been shut out from watching their favorite teams because some media companies were exploiting a loophole," said Frederick, who leads a nonprofit organization that asked the FCC to try to stop television blackouts. "Now that the Courts have upheld the closing of this loophole, it’s time for the FCC to step in and resolve the remaining disputes so fans can see their favorite teams in HD and via any provider they choose. Sports fans always win when the competition is fair – on the field and in their homes.”



This could hurt game attendance even more.
