What channel is truTV? How to watch 2022 NCAA Tournament games on DirecTV, Dish, Spectrum & more – Sporting News

It’s truTV season.
Actually, it’s time for March Madness. But, because of Turner Sports’ considerable coverage of the NCAA Tournament, it’s also time for cable subscribers and streamers to find out where they can watch the Turner TV station, which carries a not-insignificant number of tournament games in 2022.
This year, truTV will carry 13 games alongside TNT (12) and TBS (21). Combined, the three TV stations will show 46 of 67 NCAA Tournament games (if you include the First Four), compared to CBS’ 21. All the more reason for a refresher on where you can find it, regardless of cable or streaming service.
With that, The Sporting News has everything you need to find truTV, the reality TV station-turned-NCAA Tournament broadcaster:

The NCAA in April 2010 reached a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal with CBS and Turner Broadcasting Systems to give both networks broadcasting rights to the tournament (a deal that now extends through 2032).
Here’s what that means for college basketball fans: Turner Sports — a subsidiary of WarnerMedia’s entertainment division — will broadcast the majority of the NCAA Tournament on one of three stations: TBS, TNT and, of course, truTV.
Below is where you can find the latter of those three channels:
