2022 March Madness TV schedule: How to watch the NCAA Tournament, TV announcers, tipoff times


Six consecutive days of 2022 NCAA Tournament action has come and gone. And what a wild stretch of college basketball action that was, so it’s pretty understandable if you need a breather — if only for a few days. 

Now that the Sweet 16 is set, March Madness will take a three-day respite before resuming Thursday in San Francisco and San Antonio for the regional semifinals. Chicago and Philadelphia are regional sites for Friday’s games. 

Below, you’ll find when the games are, where the games are, what channel the games are on and who is calling said games. 

We’ve gone 68 teams in the NCAA Tournament a week ago and will be at 16 by the end of Sunday night 

Throughout March Madness we will update the information below every single time the NCAA Tournament schedule is adjusted. Games will be airing on CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV — and as always, you can also watch every game in the tourney via March Madness Live.

All times Eastern.
