Where can I watch the tournament this March?

All tournament games will air on TBS, CBS, TNT, and truTV. But that doesn’t mean you have to deal with a cable TV plan to tune in. Here are some ways you can get access to every single game on month-to-month plans while taking advantage of free trials or discounts in the process.

Sling TV

$40 per month—$20 off for the first month, and a free OTA Antenna available

Sling Blue carries TBS, TNT, and truTV, giving you access to most of the games. The only channel you aren’t guaranteed is CBS. HOWEVER, if you take advantage of Sling TV’s current promotion, you can get a free antenna with a two-month prepayment—giving you the access you need to CBS and its games.

Learn more about OTA antennas and how they can help you cut the cord on cable.

With a Sling Blue subscription and your free antenna receiving the CBS games, you’ll be able to tune in to every game for as low as $20 (if you’re a first-time Sling user). If you don’t want to keep using Sling TV after the games, cancel any time!

YouTube TV

$64.99 per month—$10 off for the first three months

If you’re a first time user, you can access all the games and more for $54.99 per month for your first three months. Don’t want to keep YouTube TV after April 3? Cancel any time!
