The NCAA Tournament is one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, and in 2023, it promises to be even more exciting as the best teams from around the country vie for the title of national champion.
As always, the games will be broadcast on television, with commentators and analysts providing insights and analysis for viewers watching from home. So what can we expect from the 2023 March Madness TV schedule?
Firstly, let’s take a look at the tipoff times for the games. The NCAA typically schedules four games per day in the first round, with the first game starting at around 12:00 PM (EST) and the last one starting at around 9:00 PM (EST).
The second round, Sweet 16, Elite 8 and Final Four rounds are timed to create less overlap between events. In the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament, games are typically played on Thursday through Sunday, Wednesday through Saturday as per schedule this year. Times will be announced closer to the date.
As for the TV channels, the games will be broadcast across multiple networks, including CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV. CBS usually broadcasts the Final Four and championship game, while the other three networks share the earlier rounds.
Another option for viewers is to stream the games online. In recent years, streaming has become increasingly popular as people look for more flexible viewing options. CBS typically streams all of the games on its website, while the TBS, TNT and truTV games can be streamed on the NCAA’s website.
In terms of commentators and analysts, the exact line-up won’t be announced until closer to the tournament. However, viewers can usually expect to see the familiar faces of Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, Grant Hill, Tracy Wolfson and many other big sports personalities providing their insights and analysis throughout the tournament.
