What is a DMA?
A Designated Market Area or DMA is a region usually centered around a large city that determines the programming you'll receive. Markets are usually named for the largest city or cities in the market.
For Example: The New York DMA includes not only New York City itself, but areas where New York channels are viewed the most. This includes areas surrounding the city, as well as party of New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
The DMA you are in determines what local and regional content you can receive.
How do Regional Sports Networks work?
Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) you can receive with your Sling Blue subscription are based on your billing ZIP code. Note that you can only receive RSNs through your Sling TV subscription, and you won't be able to receive these channels over the air with an antenna.
