This year’s NCAA tournament has good news and bad news for WSBT-TV viewers. The good news? Viewers will be able to watch all March Madness games. The bad? The game you want to see may not be on CBS.
For the first time in the NCAA tournament’s 73-year history, all the men’s games will be available in their entirety across four national television networks: CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV. This 14-year agreement between CBS Sports, Turner Sports and the NCAA allows the viewer to be the programmer, by watching and switching between all of the game action across the four networks. The new format features staggered start times and extended programming hours and will give viewers the ability to watch more live game action throughout the day.
WSBT-TV viewers who are accustomed to watching the tournament exclusively on CBS will have to look a bit farther afield for their favorite games.
