How to watch March Madness games in 2024

All games in this year's tournament will be broadcast on either CBS, TBS, TNT or truTV. CBS and TBS will get the bulk of the games this year, with 21 televised games each throughout the tournament. truTV will showcase 13 total games, followed by TNT with 12.

There are also plenty of live streaming options for fans to follow the action from anywhere. The March Madness Live app allows users to watch and follow every game from the tournament.

Apart from live single-game coverage, the app will feature the "Fast Break" whip-around show, which will include coverage from each live game in real time, so fans don't miss a moment of the action.

Users will also have access to watch live classic tournament game replays, March Madness Legends, Bracket TV, Tournament Updates and One Shining Moment replays on the app as well.

Paramount+ subscribers will be able to tune into every game being televised by CBS and a Max B/R Sports add-on will allow live coverage of games on TBS, TNT, and truTV.

One notable change to the tournament's commentary team this year will be the absence of Jim Nantz. Nantz has been the voice of the Final Four since 1991, but he's stepping away from college basketball to spend more time with his family.

Nantz will be replaced by Ian Eagle, who has been covering the NCAA Tournament since 1998. Eagle will be joined by Bill Raftery, Grant Hill and reporter Tracy Wolfson as the headline commentary team for the tournament.

Here's a look at where you can tune into to watch each round of this year's NCAA Tournament live.
