Black-out


Black-out is a term used to describe when the broadcast of a live event (Sports or Concerts) is imposed by the sponsor of the particular program.

An example of a black-out would be if a sporting event fails to sell a suitable number of seats or tickets, and is then blocked from being viewed in the event’s immediate region.

While black-outs are rare in Australia, the event may still be available for viewing using Pay Per View, so it’s worth doing research in such cases.
