The NFL owners voted Monday to suspend the league’s local TV blackout policy for the 2015 season.

The blackouts will be suspended for preseason and regular-season games. The league expects to evaluate the move after the season.

Games are routinely not shown in local markets if the local team does not sell a specified number of tickets.

There were no local blackouts during the 2014 regular season and only two blackouts in 2013.
