How to watch NCAA games

Both the UNC and N.C. State games tonight will air on TBS. That means you’ll need cable, satellite or a streaming account with the NCAA to watch.

WRAL, the local CBS affiliate, says local stations are no longer part of the decision-making process over how the NCAA games are distributed. The game assignments are determined by CBS Sports and Turner Sports.

WRAL will carry the Baylor vs. Xavier game at 7:15 and the Kentucky vs. Indiana game, which will follow.

UNC plays Ohio at 7:47 on TBS, and the N.C. State vs. Kansas game will follow that.

TBS airs on Time Warner Cable channels 34, 302, 1302; DirecTV channels 247, 1247; Dish Network channel 139; and AT&T U-Verse channels 112, 1112.

You can also watch streaming games online or on your mobile device for a one-time fee of $3.99. Details are available at
