Blacked out in area

I follow the Dallas Stars and have subscribed to NHL Center Ice for 3 years while living in Freeport, FL.  Why are some of these games blacked out in my area.  I pay for all games.

    Blackouts are imposed by the NHL on broadcasters and TV providers. Games shown on NHL Centre Ice are also subject to blackout restrictions. Blackouts remain intact as the local regional sports network has the right to air these games in a specific area.
