Since 2011, CBS has partnered with Turner Broadcasting to air NCAA tournament games across four networks: CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV. The Turner channels are offered on most cable and satellite packages, including those with Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and Dish Network. CBS will still carry the majority of the games, including the Final Four games and the Championship game.

On Friday, Duke will play at 12:15 p.m. on CBS, N.C. State plays at 1:40 p.m. on TBS and UNC plays at 7:20 p.m. on TNT.

You can also watch some games live on your computer at http://www.ncaa.com/march-madness-live and through NCAA mobile apps available at the Apple and Android app stores.
