FCC proposes to put an end to the NFL blackout rule
This final note today: another item from the agenda of the Federal Communications Commission.
The FCC voted this week to review the dreaded blackout rule -- most commonly observed in the National Football League.
It's when a home game doesn't sell and so is 'blacked out' on local television.
There is a catch, of course. Cable and satellite broadcasters would be allowed to broadcast games.
But the NFL could still impose a blackout if it was in the contract with the network.
But at least we're not gonna have cell phones on planes is all I have to say. The CEO of Delta announced today they're just not gonna allow it.
