Blackout question for Playoffs

Forgive me if this has already been covered elsewhere. 

In light of the fact that KGW seems to have the rights to playoff games, does that imply that national broadcasts (TNT, ESPN, etc) will NOT be blacked out in the "local market" (which for some reason includes Seattle)? 

I live in Seattle, refuse to abandon my Dish Network for the evil Comcast empire (on principle, but also on the reports that the picture quality is embarassingly bad anyway) and won't be able to sleep until someone confirms for me that when I go to watch the Blazers take it to the Spurs (or whomever) in the playoffs, that I won't get the incredibly enraging message "THIS GAME NOT AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING IN YOUR AREA." 


Thanks for any clarity anyone here can offer.

PS I hate Comcast almost as much as I despise Clay Bennett.
