College basketball players and fans alike were devastated last year when March Madness was cancelled due to the pandemic. But this year, the NCAA tournament is back and, although there are lots of restrictions and limitations to keep COVID in check, fans across the country are rejoicing. As the initial 64 has been whittled down to 16—with some sleepers knocking out tourney regulars like UNC and #1 seeds like Illinois—read on to find how and when to watch.

Of course you can just turn on your TV and flip to one of these cable channels but you can also use your cable login to stream games to your phone or tablet. And, because this is 2021, if you don’t have a cable provider, you can also get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu, CBS All Access, AT&T TV Now, Fubo TV, or Sling. The 7-day trials will get you almost through the finals. Extending these awesome services range from $5 for CBS All Access to $45 for Hulu, which would let you watch every men’s and women’s game AND “The Last Dance,” the documentary about Michael Jordan—in case this year’s Big Dance leaves your wanting.
