“The NFL lifted the television blackout rule in place for the 2015 season, the league announced Monday at the NFL owners’ meetings in Arizona,” reports CBSSports.com.

The story continues, “The Federal Communications Commission previously ceased backing the blackout rule, although the league was still able to enforce it legally. The blackout rule keeps the broadcasts of games off TV in local markets when the home team doesn’t sell enough tickets.”

The league says it will reevaluate its new policy once the season ends.
