For First Time Ever, All March Madness Games On TV

Across the country college basketball teams are getting ready for the final portion of the season. Some teams have already guaranteed a place in the NCAA Tournament, others will need every game to get there.

But one things is certain, every game for every team will be broadcast on TV for the first time in the history of the tournament. All games can be seen live on either network or cable television, and without a pay-per-view package like in the past.

The “play-in” games will be shown on TruTV on March 15 and 16. But once the actual tournament begins, all games will be shown on either CBS, TBS, TNT or TruTv. The 12-hour a day coverage will go from noon to midnight on both Thursday, March 17th and Friday, March 18th.

In addition to the broadcasting every game, the partnership between CBS and Turner Broadcasting means that fans will have the chance to listen to Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Reggie Miller, among others, break down all the action.

Tournament games will also be streamed live on
