TV Map For Jags-Bucs

December 23rd, 2023

Free football.

Central and North Florida Bucs fans, rejoice! You are finally getting to see the Bucs are free TV!

Joe sees the comments on this here corner of the interwebs weekly: Orlando and North Florida Bucs fans are getting the shaft because your local FOX and CBS affiliates won’t air Bucs games. Well, it took the Jags coming to town to solve that.

Virtually the entire Sunshine State will get the Jags-Bucs game tomorrow via your local CBS affiliate.

Only the far reaches of the Panhandle and the Treasure Coast and South Florida CBS affiliates won’t be piping in the game. Also, nearly all of Georgia and all of South Carolina can watch the Bucs free as well.

Strangely, so too will most of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Must be a lot of Antoine Winfield, Ko Kieft and Luke Goedeke fans up there.

The CBS crew of Kevin Harlan, Trent Green and Melanie Collins will have the call. Locally, the game will be broadcast on WTSP-TV Channel 10.

If the Bucs can pull off a huge win over the Jags tomorrow, they will be one win over the slimy Saints away from wrapping up an unprecedented third straight NFC South title.

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

    Cleveland at Houston ?


  3. Badger Says:

    Well DirectV has a contract dispute with a local affiliate broadcasting the game. So I will not be seeing it only if a visit a local brewery

  4. Mike Johnson Says:

    Good thing my uncle has the NFl ticket down in Miami. Can’t believe they are not showing Bucs game down there.

  5. Ha-Ha-Ha Says:

    Got to watch the Colts vs Atlanta game.
    Colts win, Jags lose, Colts control the division.
    If the Falcon lose, coupled with the ‘Saints loss, I smell a typical Toilet Bowl half hearted effort.
    It’s time to step it up and grab that #19 pick.

    More confirmation that the nation does not want to watch the Bucs. Even when sitting in playoff contention and playing another playoff calibre team. Pay attention, Glazers.

    Three weeks in a row now that we Treasure Coast fans have had to tune into the radio to listen to Dave Moore explain to Gene Deckerhoff what just happened. Although Gene is real good at explaining which side of the field the Bucs are on (moving left to right on your radio) and where the ball is located (looks like it’s at the 42 or make it the 42 and half yard line) while failing to indicate how may yards they just picked up.. Oh well, maybe next week.

    For sure it seems the areas with NFC North and South teams vying for NFC playoff seeding have the game in their area.

  9. Bubby Says:

    As a very long-time season ticket holder, I’m going to have to miss this one. This kick off time is brutal, imho, and I have a feeling Raymond James stands will look like yesterday’s gasparilla bowl. My group is 8 and none of us can go.

  10. Woodenman Says:

    Thanks Bubby for letting us know you won’t be there not that anybody cares . At least know if they lose we know who to blame it on.

  11. Proudbucsfan Says:

    Pensacola gets screwed again. Thank god for NFL+ I have to wait until 7pm but at least I get to watch the game. You would think that I’m in Florida I’d get to watch two Florida teams play each other but the networks don’t think Pensacola is apart of the state apparently.

  12. Joe Says:

    For “Bucs Orlando:”

    Just noticed your question from last Sunday in the “Gameday Tampa Bay” post comments (was a little busy last Sunday). Reason why Bucs games are on CBS is that for, gee, past 20 years (?) CBS had the rights to AFC games. When the new TV contracts kicked in this season, that’s no longer the case.

    No longer are NFC games wedded to FOX nor AFC games tied to CBS. So it is a mishmash each week. Bucs could be on FOX or they could be on CBS. Really no rhyme or reason.

  13. D-Rome Says:

    I live in the Panhandle but I’m in the red. 😄 I’ll use NFL± and spoof my location like I do most Sunday’s.

    Its always been that way. Tampa is not a big market team. Neither is Jacksonville. Dallas, Washington, NY, GB, Cleveland, etc.. are big markets and will have draw even when the team is terrible. This is all about advertising money, not how good the team is or how good a game will be.

  15. orlbucfan Says:

    I’ll be attending “The Nutcracker.” Unless they changed this sucker to 4pm tomorrow I figure, I’ll be reading all the cheers. Go Mighty Bucs!! 10-7.

  16. Leopold Stotch Says:

    Holy crap! I made it in the blue! Normally stuck with the Cleveland/AFC North games since it’s Wisconsin. Let’s go!

  17. Elite Vita Says:

    Also CBS shows an enormous amount of Jaguar games in the Gainesville area. They would rather not show a Bucs game even if the Jags are not playing at that time. Last couple of weeks they had a fishing show on instead of the Bucs game. I think the fishing show was called “Fishing For Dollars”

  18. Drunkinybor Says:

    Cleveland and Houston will be the greatest sporting event. (Echo) Ever! ever ever ever ev..err.

  19. Drunkinybor Says:

    @Joe I had no idea they changed the NFC and AFC television rights to either cbs or Fox. I watch online. I was wondering why CBS had a all NFC matchup. Thanks for posting that.

  20. Joe Says:

    @Joe I had no idea they changed the NFC and AFC television rights to either cbs or Fox.

    Really, the NFL didn’t changes the rights. They just charged CBS/FOX the same amount of cash for the rights and the NFL decides what games go where each week.

    Thanks for the response Woodenmen. Go Fxck yourself.
