NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 

You can also see full times and schedules for the NCAA tourney here.

Here's how you can watch the games online:

The best places to watch: Online at NCAA.com/MarchMadness or the NCAA March Madness Live app. All the games will be there, regardless of where they are televised.

CBS is televising 24 games, including the national championship and the Final Four. These games won't require a cable or satellite password through the app or website, but they are viewable only on phones, tablets and computers — not streaming devices such as Apple TV, Roku or Fire TV.

You'll need a password for the remaining games, which are split among the Turner-owned cable channels — TBS, TNT and truTV. There's a three-hour grace period on most devices. You could get some 40 devices to watch all the games for free, but getting cable service might be cheaper. Streaming devices are OK for watching, but there's no grace period. Games also will be available on individual apps for TBS, TNT and truTV — again with a password.

On desktops and laptops, the March Madness website will have a "boss button" on the upper right corner. One click replaces the game with a fake screenshot of a note-taking or PowerPoint-like app.
