It wasn’t too long ago that the NCAA Tournament only aired on one channel. Fans that wanted to see every minute of a particular game had to tune in online. Before the days of the internet, fans were simply stuck with one game.
But in today’s tournament, every second of each game is aired live on television. It’s just sometimes an adventure finding the right channel. The tournament is aired on four different stations, one of which has an audience much, much smaller than the others – TruTV.
When TruTV isn’t airing NCAA Tournament games, it’s home to prank and reality shows, including ones with some interesting named programs such as Hardcore Pawn. But if your basketball team is on TruTV this week, we’re here to help you find the correct channel.
