NFL GPS IP Blackouts

Skip Oliva relayed this interesting tidbit to me:

A colleague explained to me earlier that the NFL has a new mobile app that allows you to watch live streaming video from games. Unless your game is “blacked out” — the NFL deprives fans of their own team’s footage if the stadium doesn’t sell out — or you’re actually near the stadium itself. Then the app uses GPS to determine your location and deprive you of the relevant video.
