                Frequently Asked Questions

                About college basketball on TV
                • FAQs
                What channel is college basketball on?

                To watch college basketball on TV during the regular season, try ESPN channels, any channels run by major college basketball conferences (e.g., Big Ten, Pac-12, or SEC), and regional sports networks (e.g., beIN or Root Sports). To watch during the tournament, tune in to CBS, TNT, TBS, and TruTV, which have exclusive coverage rights through 2023.

                The easiest way to find college basketball games on TV today is by using the Game Finder App on the DISH Hopper 3 Whole-Home DVR. You can search for specific teams or browse schedules by sport.

                Another easy way to find NCAA basketball TV channels is through voice search. Just use your DISH Voice Remote, Google Home, or Amazon Echo to search for terms like “college basketball on TV tonight” and instantly find results.

                How do I watch college basketball?

                You can watch college basketball games either on TV or over online streaming. With DISH, you can do both. Sign up today to watch more college ball and follow the conferences, teams, and players you care about.

                How many people watch college basketball?

                A ton. In 2018, about 1 in 3 adults through age 64 watched at least one college basketball game on broadcast TV. In 2019, about 19.6 million viewers watched the championship game of the NCAA basketball tournament on TV. That’s a lot of college basketball fans tuning in.

                How long does a college basketball game last on TV?

                Most college basketball games on TV run about 2 hours. It’s common for them to run over the allotted time, and sports networks usually stay with the first game until it’s over. But sometimes, the start of the second game is available on another channel.

                In that situation, the DISH Hopper 3 Whole-Home DVR comes in handy—you can use Picture-in-Picture or MultiView mode to watch both games at once, or you can simply record the second game from its proper start time and watch what you missed later.
