NFL drops blackout rule for 2015

The National Football League is dropping its blackout rule for the 2015 season, according to CNN Money.

The rule prevents games from being broadcast in a team’s home market if the tickets aren’t sold out. 

@darrenrovell: TV revenue, even local, is a gazillion times more important than ticket revenue. Don’t think you’ll see the NFL ever return to blackouts.

Roughly one game out of ten was blacked out under the rule. This is great for local fans in small markets.
