March Madness 2023: Schedule, Support, Elite Eight Live Stream Tonight on TBS

If you picked a seed to win it all, consider your March Madness bracket busted. For the first time in NCAA men’s basketball tournament history, none of the four No. 1 seeds advanced to the Elite Eight. Purdue and Kansas lost earlier, and on Friday the last two seeded teams, Alabama and Houston, were upset by a pair of No. 5 seeds, San Diego State and Miami.

The stage is set for all four Elite Eight matches this weekend, starting tonight. The highest remaining seed is No. 2 Texas, while the lowest is No. 9 North Florida Atlantic. If you picked half of that bracket, you’ve probably already won your pool.

Here’s everything you need to watch and live stream March Madness, from the Elite Eight to the Final Four and the National Championship game.

What is the March Madness TV schedule?

The schedule and channels for this weekend’s Elite Eight matches are listed below (all times ET).

Saturday March 25

  • No. 3 Kansas State vs. No. 9 Florida Atlantic, 6:09 p.m. on TBS
  • #3 Gonzaga vs. #4 UConn, 8:49 p.m. on TBS

Sunday March 26

  • No. 5 San Diego State vs. No. 6 Creighton, 2:20 p.m. on CBS
  • No. 2 Texas vs. No. 5 Miami (Florida), 5:05 p.m. on CBS

Here is the schedule remaining after (all matches are on CBS):

  • Final square: Saturday April 1
  • NCAA Championship Game: Monday April 3

What does March Madness support look like now?

A No. 2 seed (Texas) is still alive, along with two No. 3 seeds (Gonzaga and Kansas St.) and a No. 4 seed (UConn).

No. 9 Florida Atlantic and No. 6 Creighton, along with No. 5 Miami and No. 5 San Diego State, complete the Elite Eight.

Full and updated support can be found on the NCAA website.

How can I watch March Madness?

The rest of the tournament will be broadcast on CBS and TBS.

Which channel broadcasts the Final Four?

The Final Four and National Championship Game will air on CBS and stream on Paramount Plus.

Can I stream March Madness for free?

Go to the NCAA’s March Madness Live site or use its March Madness Live app and you can watch games for free. You can watch March Madness Live on iOS and Android devices with Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV and Xbox One. The app also supports AirPlay and Chromecast.

As with most free things, there is a catch. Without proving you’re a pay-TV subscriber, you only get a three-hour preview, after which you’ll need to log in to continue watching.

What are my other streaming options?

You can use a live TV streaming service to watch March Madness. Three of the five live TV streaming services offer the two channels needed to watch every tournament match, but keep in mind that not all services carry all local networks, so check each using the links below for make sure it carries CBS in your area.

You can also use Paramount Plus to watch some, but not all, of March Madness. Only games featured on CBS are available on Paramount Plus.
