“We’re thrilled to reach Bucks fans on broadcast television stations,” Peter Feigin, president of the Bucks and Fiserv Forum, wrote in a statement. “Over-the-air is an easy and affordable way for Bucks fans to watch our games and we’re excited to work with a fan-first team of broadcasters, led by Weigel along with Gray, Morgan Murphy and TEGNA to make them widely available.”

The games were initially part of a distribution agreement between the NBA and Bally Sports Wisconsin’s parent company, Diamond Sports Group.

“We are thrilled to offer the Bucks fans in Green Bay, Eau Claire, La Crosse, Wausau, and nearby areas the chance to watch these ten games for free. This is a fantastic opportunity for Gray stations WBAY/WBAY 365 in Green Bay, WYOW/WSAW in Wausau, and WEAU/WECX in Eau Claire-La Crosse to provide complete access to these Bucks games, regardless of how you watch TV,” said Matt Moran, senior managing vice president for Gray Television.
