About college basketball on TV
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).

How many people watch college basketball?
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.
