The Big Bang radiation has a distribution of wavelengths / frequencies /
energies.  Most of it is in the microwave region, but a small part of it
is energetic enough to contribute to the random static that shows when a
TV is tuned to a channel that isn't being broadcast.

Or so I am informed by multiple sources.  Some of them pre-internet.
