Note: Some games may be blacked out due to local blackout rules, or because Sling TV doesn't have the rights to broadcast a game. Impacted subscribers will not be able to watch the game unless it is also on a local broadcast network, available either through your Sling TV subscription, or with an over-the-air antenna.
