March Madness Channel:

Men’s Sweet 16 Games will air on a mix of CBS, TBS and TruTV.

Games for the men’s NCAA March Madness tournament will be broadcast live on a combination of CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV. In the past, this combination has been difficult to achieve with just one, two or even three streaming services. But this year, March Madness viewing should be much less… crazy. Many people have access to CBS now for free via streaming. But if you don’t currently have live local channels like CBS on your TV, we recommend checking out an old-school TV antenna or subscribing to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME, which includes access to live CBS coverage.

For other channels, HBO’s Max is currently still offering its sports add-on (B/R Sports) for free to subscribers of any Max tier. So for $9.99 per month $5.83/month thanks to a sale, you can watch March Madness games live on TNT, TBS and TruTV.

If you want to add just one subscription to your arsenal, several live TV streaming services offer everything channels you’ll need to keep up with March Madness, like Sling, DirecTV and YouTube TV.

How to watch March Madness without cable:


Max has been “the one to watch” for entertainment fans for a long time, but now, it’s also attracting sports fans. For a limited time, Max subscribers can get the new B/R Sports add-on completely free. This includes live March Madness games on TBS, TNT and truTV.

Right now, you can also save over 40% on Max when you pay for the entire year upfront, dropping the monthly price from $9.99 to $5.83 per month.
