    I know they will blackout the Jaguars Miami game on my TV, but will they also be able to block me on the supercast computer application?

    I don't think any games are blacked out on the SuperFan application.

    I know last year that if my local OTA station had the game it was blacked out on Supercast, even when I was on the road out of my OTA area.

    This year, I watched a supercast game on my computer that was blacked out in the 700's and only available on my local channels. So, I'm not sure what the rules for that are exactly.

    I have never seen a blacked out game on the Supercast app on the computer. For reference, my market is Houston, Tx.

    I have never had a blacked out game so I can not comment. My thoughts were that all games were available on it.

    If a game isn't available on NFL Sunday Ticket channels in customer's area (based on DIRECTV service address), then it's not available on Supercast. You can get Scores, stats, and highlights are available at all times (highlights require Adobe AIR). Select game "chip" from left side of screen to view that game's info

    Seems like someone said they still show all the scores on the Red Zone Channel though.

    That's what I thought also but I just checked and the two games blacked out on ST due to them being on local OTA are availabe on Supercast, not blacked out.

    That may be the rule but in practice it is not true, at least in my area. I've never been blacked out on the computer.

    It's good info to know that it's not getting blacked out on supercast. You got lucky! I know some people in FL w/o internet that are mad right now....

    All games are blacked out on ST in the home areas. But the Supercast games are only blacked out if they are blacked out in the home area.

    Very few games are blacked out in the home area, so very few are ever blacked out on Supercast.

    Maybe they aren't blacking out the secondary markets, because I got the Jags-Fins game in Orlando....but it was blacked out on TV.
