March Madness TV Guide: Where and when to see Sunday’s second-round games

Remember back in the day when the NCAA Tournament was televised on one channel and you’d be subjected to split screens and live look-ins?

Those days are thankfully over.

CBS and Turner have put an end to that. In recent years, the networks have devoted four channels to the early stages of March Madness, ensuring fans can see any game they wish in its entirety, the way the good Lord intended.

That doesn’t mean it’s not a chore to find the games, however. So we’ve put together a handy-dandy list (thought I was gonna say ‘notebook’, didn’t you?) of where to find Sunday’s second-round tournament action, and channel listings depending on what television service you subscribe to.
