The Bucks announced today that 80 of the team's games for the upcoming season will be televised on Fox Sports Wisconsin. It will be the most locally televised games in team history, up 8 from last year's 72 broadcasts.
Here are some more of the logistics, via the press release:
"For the eighth consecutive season, FSW will serve as the exclusive home of Bucks basketball, and each of the 80 telecasts will be broadcast in high definition.
The regular season schedule tips off on Wednesday, Oct. 29, when the Bucks travel to Charlotte to face the Hornets. The Bucks will face the Philadelphia 76ers in their BMO Harris Bradley Center Home Opener on Friday, Oct. 31, with that night's broadcast featuring a special one-hour edition of "Bucks Live" beginning at 6:30 p.m. CT. "Bucks Live" on FOX Sports Wisconsin will air before and after every game telecast this season.
The 2014-15 telecast schedule also features one preseason game, when the Bucks take on the Timberwolves on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m.
Jim Paschke and Jon McGlocklin, "The Original Buck," return for their 29th year of calling the action together as the Bucks play-by-play announcer and analyst, respectively. Additionally, Bucks legend Sidney Moncrief will once again serve as an analyst. The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and five-time NBA All-Star and All-NBA/All-Defensive Team honoree will share broadcast duties with McGlocklin, providing analysis primarily on Bucks road games.
Craig Coshun and Jeff Grayson will host "Bucks Live" before and after every regular season game, featuring analysis from Tony Smith and sideline reports from Telly Hughes and Sophia Minnaert.
The two games not being televised on FSW (Dec. 30 at Charlotte, Jan. 15 vs. New York) are scheduled to be broadcast nationally on NBATV."
80 locally televised games plus two nationally televised games means that you'll be able to catch every second of Bucks action this season. That means you'll see plenty more...
Needless to say, we're excited. We give this move a thumbs up. Maybe even multiple thumbs up.
