SportsPulse: Before you hit “submit” in your office pool’s bracket challenge follow these simple “Do’s” and “Don’ts” when filling out your March Madness bracket.
March Madness? Try “TruTV Awareness Month.”
Yes, it’s that time of year again — when college basketball fans around the country flock to their favorite search engines in pursuit of a common question: “What channel is TruTV?”
The network, which was formerly known as “Court TV” and shifted its focus to comedy in 2014, is not known for its sports programming, but it hosts a string of NCAA Tournament games every season. So if you’re a fan of LSU or Syracuse — or if you’re simply trying to watch the “First Four,” starting Tuesday — you’ll want to keep this page handy.
In total, TruTV will broadcast 12 games this weekend. (CBS, TBS and TNT host the others.)
Here’s how to find TruTV on your favorite cable provider or otherwise stream the games on your computer, phone or laptop.
AT&T U-Verse: Channel 164/1164 HD (Full listings here)
DirecTV: Channel 246 (Full listings here)
Dish Network: Channel 242 (Full listings here)
Verizon Fios: Channel 183/683 HD (Full listings here)
