What determines a blackout for NBA LEAGUE PASS Digital?

Blackouts take place when a game is televised locally in your area via a regional sports network or an over-the-air station. If a game is blacked out on NBA LEAGUE PASS in your local area, you should tune to your local station to see the game. 

Games will also be blacked out when they are appearing on national television. This applies to games being televised on ABC, ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV. You may view these games simply by switching to the designated channel. 

You can see which teams will be locally blacked-out in your area by entering your current ZIP code into the Blackout Finder at the bottom of this page:  http://www.nba.com/leaguepass

Blackouts areas for NBA LEAGUE PASS Digital are determined in part by your IP address from your internet connection.
