It's marketed towards those fans of teams who have had to move away from (or who never lived in) the primary market of a team. Especially if they live in a secondary market, like me. If you live in a secondary market, there are no blackout rules. So you do get every game.
Me, I don't have DirecTV, so I either watch what they give me or I go to a sports bar. Rarely do I miss out on the best game of the week (the local stations are free to pick whichever compelling matchups are available to them in their timeslots). Unfortunately, that does mean I'm often stuck watching the Raiders or the Chargers or the 49ers, none of which I am a fan of, so I just hope that one of them is playing someone I do like.
