The NCAA Tournament is back once again, meaning sports fans all across America are ready to spend hours upon hours watching college basketball this Thursday-Sunday. Unfortunately, games are being played on four different channels, so people don’t know where to watch the games. That’s what I’m here for. I am going to give you the rundown on where to watch the games this weekend.

When it comes to the least recognizable of the four channels that will play games during March Madness, truTV is the clear winner, because who the hell watches truTV? From here, I’m going to break down what channel truTV is and how to find it, as well as a schedule of the games that will be played on truTV. So, let’s get it going.

What Channel is truTV & Where to Find It

TruTV: DirecTV – 246, AT&T UVerse – 1164, and Dish Network – 242. If you have cable or an online television package, you’ll have to check your local listings.
