Blackouts are the result of broadcasting restrictions imposed by broadcasters, professional sports teams, and leagues in order to help foster fan support that generates revenue for local teams. Some blackouts occur when a local sports team blacks out a game in the city where that game is being played. Blackouts are set for city centers, typically within 50 km, and for specific regions, including provinces and territories. Blackouts can also exclude any of these areas.
