Midwest Winter Nationals Blackout Test

The 2019 Midwest Winter Nationals will be broadcast live from the Gordyville U.S.A. Arena in Gifford, Illinois from Thursday through Saturday, January 17-19.

Due to broadcast restrictions imposed by the facility, the event will not be viewable in real-time by devices located within a 100 mile radius of the arena.

To experience the pay-per-view broadcast from a mobile device that will be located outside the blackout area during the event, you must enable “Location Services” (iPhone: Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Switch to On / Android: Settings > Location > Switch to On). The pay-per-view cannot be seen on a mobile device with Location Services disabled. Please do not contact Tech Support with this issue, as this requirement will not be waived.

Once Location Services have been enabled, you can test whether your device can view the event by visiting]. If you see the 2019 Winter Nationals logo, your location and settings will allow you to view the stream in real-time. (Keep in mind that this test result is only applicable at the time of testing. Relocating the device to within the blackout area or disabling Location Services before or during the broadcast will still cause the stream to fail.)

If you do not see the “2019 Winter Nationals logo” in the video player, here are some additional steps to try:

  • View the desktop version of the broadcast page. (iPhone: In the Safari browser, with the mobile version of the broadcast page visible, tap and hold the Refresh icon or pull down on the screen to reveal the “Request Desktop Site” option. / Android: In the Chrome browser, choose the “Desktop site” option in the main menu.)
  • In test, Google Chrome browser in desktop mode worked on all tested devices. Please install/use Google Chrome. Google Chrome Download
