Will college basketball games be blacked out?

Note: Some games may be blacked out due to local blackout rules, or because Sling TV doesn’t have the rights to broadcast that 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.

If you receive an on-screen blackout message when trying to watch a game on ESPN, you can watch your game on ESPN3, which is included with your Sling Orange subscription. Click here for details on how to find your game on ESPN3.
