Flash/flicker during NHL and NBA games

New to cogeco and I noticed on all my tvs (1 4K, 2 led, 1 LCD ) have terrible flicker during games that occur in arenas. I don't have it for football/soccer or on any other station programming. Is this due to strobe from photography in the arenas or is this a cogeco issue because it's very distracting and I don't think I noticed it before on bell satellite. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

This is a known problem on all TVs on all providers including Gamecentre Live on the consoles. It is caused by fans using flash inside the arena. Nothing can be done about it. There are already threads here about it.

This issue has been discussed often on this forum. Here's a sample link:

You can find more by searching for "hockey flash" or similar terms. It's probably the professional strobes - I'm not sure if fan cameras would have much effect, but they may...

Thanks guys. The leagues should do something about it because on a 75 inch screen it is very distracting to the point that I can't watch.
