I understand Directv's obligation to blackout certain sporting events. I also understand that they are required to blackout old rebroadcasts of classic sporting events. This is not a question on that. Why are they blacking out non sporting events. Two examples Cardinals winter warm up. This is a charity event held in St. Louis. The show is a recap of went on at the charity event and interview with players. Spotlight-show is a one on one interview with a member of one of the St. Louis players. Why are these always blacked out? I have called on so many occasions in the past on this and no one can answer why these are being blacked out.
