If you live in Milwaukee

Watch the Bucks on DIRECTV STREAM

About 70 Bucks games air on Bally Sports Wisconsin each season, which means in-market Milwaukee fans will want to make sure they have access to the channel, either through a live TV streaming service or a cable provider.

DIRECTV STREAM requires an upgrade to its “Choice” package in order to watch Bally Sports Wisconsin.

Out-of-market, Bucks fans can add NBA League Pass to a DIRECTV STREAM account.

Watch the Bucks on Bally Sports Plus

In-market Bucks fans also have the option of watching the team on Bally Sports Plus when the Bucks are on Bally Sports Wisconsin. Bally Sports Plus lacks ESPN and TNT.

If you don’t live in Wisconsin

If you live within the Bucks viewing territory, you can’t watch the Bucks on NBA League Pass. In the Milwaukee area, Bucks games on NBA League Pass will be blacked out in favor of Bally Sports Wisconsin.

However, out-of-market Bucks fans can watch the team on NBA League Pass all season long. You can signup for NBA League Pass à la carte on Amazon Prime, or the package can be added to an existing YouTube TV, Sling TV, fuboTV, or DIRECTV STREAM account.

Watching the Bucks FAQ

Can I watch the Bucks game on Sling TV?

If you live in the Milwaukee area, you can’t watch most Bucks games on Sling TV because the platform doesn’t carry Bally Sports Wisconsin. When the Bucks are on ESPN, or TNT, you can watch the game on Sling Orange. If you live out-of-market, you can watch the Bucks on Sling TV by adding NBA League Pass.
