Dallas Mavericks to Broadcast 10 Games Free Over-The-Air in Five Additional Texas Markets

TEGNA Inc. today announced that in addition to WFAA, its Dallas-Fort-Worth ABC affiliate, KCEN in Waco, KYTX in Tyler, KWES in Midland-Odessa, KIDY in San Angelo and KXVA in Abilene will air 10 Dallas Mavericks games this season, enabling fans across Texas to watch the games live through their free over-the-air broadcasts and through stations’ broadcast distribution with cable, satellite, and streaming services. Nearly nine million Texans will have access to these games across these six markets.

Mark Followill, in his 19th season as the Mavericks play-by-play announcer, Mavericks legends Derek Harper and Devin Harris, along with Jeff “Skin” Wade and Lesley McCaslin will be on the call for these games, with pre- and postgame coverage from Dana Larson and Brian Dameris.

“Providing access to games has always been our top priority,” said Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall. “We are thrilled to work with additional TEGNA stations to bring more fun and excitement to our MFFLs across Texas.”

“We are very proud to expand our partnership with the Dallas Mavericks, one of the hottest teams in the NBA coming out of the All-Star break, to make these important late-season games available to more fans across Texas,” said Brad Ramsey, senior vice president of media operations for TEGNA.

The 10 games available to viewers are:

Fri., Mar. 1 @ Boston, 6:30 p.m. CT

Mon., Mar. 11 @ Chicago, 7 p.m. CT

Wed., Mar. 13 vs. Golden State, 7:30 p.m. CT

Thurs., Mar. 21 vs. Utah, 7:30 p.m. CT

The NBA and Diamond Sports Group earlier reached an agreement to allow teams to join with local broadcasters for a limited number of over-the-air games during the remainder of the regular season. The 10 games airing on TEGNA stations’ schedules will not be available on Bally Sports Southwest or the Bally Sports app. All other remaining Mavericks games this season will be aired and streamed by Bally Sports, and/or by the NBA’s national media partners, as previously scheduled.

More details on how to watch these Mavericks games can be found on your local TEGNA station site: (Dallas-Ft. Worth), (Waco), (Tyler), (San Angelo and Abilene). Fans can visit for information on how to purchase or set up an over-the-air antenna to watch games free over-the-air.
