TV Map For Bears-Bucs Game

September 16th, 2023

Free football.

Bears at Bucs. An old NFC Central rivalry renewed. Joe can taste the Bromosa!

Today’s game will be on FOX. Locally, that’s WTVT-TV Channel 13. Remember, Sunday afternoon Bucs games will bounce back and forth from CBS to FOX just about each week.

Unfortunately, tomorrow’s game with the Bears will be broadcast over the air on free TV in Florida and northern Illinois, mostly. Baker Mayfield doesn’t pull eyeballs like Tom Brady.

(Well, Joe sure as hell does!)

Joe Davis, Daryl Johnston and Pam Oliver will work the game for FOX.

If you don’t live in Florida or northern Illinois, you’ll have to get the Bucs game at your favorite watering hole or be a man and get YouTubeTV.

Of course, Bucs fans can head to Big Storm Brewing in Clearwateror Big Storm’s other taprooms in Ybor City, Odessa, Cape Coral and downtown Orlando at the Amway Center. And naturally, visiting your neighborhood Hooters is always a wise move. Bonus: Select Hooters in Florida carry Big Storm Brewing beer on tap!

    For Saturday & Sunday football games can’t beat YouTube TV.

    Ricki.. I’d speculate that the Packers have more of a national audience. And of course, Atlanta has the Georgia following and may be a greater rivalry of interest for the Panthers and their audience. The Bears aren’t competitive. The Bucs aren’t considered to be a major contender. I think that explains it.

    Yay I get it out of Gainsville over the air!! Blast the Bears!

    They absolutely do. It’s one reason the Packers are always on national TV.

    I’m in England, can I watch it on YouTube TV?

    YouTube TV is only available in the U.S., bummer. I guess I’m stuck with soccer, lol…

    In Blighty you would need NFL Game Pass Intl.

    Are we there yet?

    Faspro: If nothing else works, go to You’ve several hours ahead of us in central FL. You go to their site, and all the games will be automatically updated in a data format. What I mean is pick the team and then the game. Follow the prompts. I am a diehard Bucs Radio fan. I’ve followed other games on an iPad doing this. Hope it helps, plus it’s legal. 🙂

    It’s not going to be free TV for long.

    The new ‘over the air’ standard, ATSC 3.0, that the networks are pushing, require new tuners and you have to always be connected to the internet to use them because the broadcasts are encrypted. So if you don’t have internet, then you don’t have any more ‘free’ TV when this becomes the norm in a few years.

    Plus, of course, the reason they’re doing this is so they can eventually charge you to watch the broadcasts. They’ll do so by first offering live ‘premium’ events and then will move to requiring people to pay to view stuff such as sports.

    Not that I care, I’m fine with paying to watch the NFL since that’s pretty much exclusively the only thing I watch. But that’s the future in another few years for those that care.

    I’m in AR and can hear it on 98rock tampabay. Then the next day I can watch a full replay just by typing it into the search bar.

    @Faspro look into a VPN for YouTube TV!
