Proposed Bill Would Require All Packer Games to Be Broadcast In Every County In Wisconsin
Senator Tammy Baldwin is working to make sure all Wisconsin residents no matter where they live in the state can watch Packers games every week. Baldwin reintroduced her "Go Pack Go" Act would require cable, satellite and other providers give Wisconsin residents programming from Wisconsin instead of Minnesota.
Right now the Packers fans in 12 counties in Wisconsin that are on the border are assigned an out of state Minnesota TV market which means the fans in Wisconsin will have the Vikings game broadcast versus the Packers if both teams are playing at the same time.
Under the current schedule, the Packers and Vikings games are being broadcast on the same broadcast network at the same time in weeks 3, 14 and 17 of the NFL season. Baldwin said “Every Packers fan across our state should be able to watch every Packers game, My Go Pack Go Act would give Packers fans in every Wisconsin county the opportunity to receive in-state broadcasts, so they can cheer on our beloved green and gold.”
