Where is truTV?

Where to find truTV is a question a lot of college basketball fans are asking this week, since the truTV cable network for the first time (along with sister stations TNT and TBS) will be telecasting entire games of the NCAA basketall tournament.

The truTV network, once known as Court TV, will telecast all four of the “First Four” games Tuesday and Wednesday (including Clemson’s and UNC-Asheville's first-round games tonight) and then have games throughout the weekend (including Duke’s 2:40 p.m. first-round game Friday vs. Hampton in Charlotte -- that game will NOT be on CBS).

This is all part of the NCAA’s new 14-year TV deal, which was hammered out in Charlotte last April and which I’m writing about in depth for Wednesday’s newspaper.

But in the meantime, where’s truTV? Here’s a partial list, and if you aren’t on one of these then look on your TV for the channel guide or go to ncaa.com for more details.

In Charlotte on Time Warner Cable, truTV can be found on Channel 75; the HDTV version is 1313. For Comporium, it is channel 233. For Dish Network it is channel 204 and for DirecTV it is channel 246. On AT&T U-verse, it is channel 165. For MI-Connection, it is channel 31.

In general, truTV is usually found very close to TNT and TBS because all three are owned by Turner Networks. It is on most basic cable packages.

If it's not on TruTV, it must me fake.

Also on 313 for digital for Time Warner.

Anybody who still subscribes to Time Warner Cable is a fool. Say yes to DirecTV - more channels for far less money. And only 1 price increase per year.

I've had Dish for 3 years and no increases. Plus they gave us like 20 Starz movie channels free for a year. Goes out less often than cable too. Suck it TWC.

Channel 47 for those of us with Charter cable.

J, Does DirecTV or Dish have 50 MBps internet yet?

I hope Jesse Ventura is one of the color analysts. I think I can hear him now. "It's a conspiracy that Virginia Tech is not in this tournament, McMahon!"

Anyone who can't find TruTV on their TV listings needs to be taking remedial reading instead of sitting on his butt watching football.

@Anon626:

Point well made, especially since the sport mentioned in the article upon which you comment is basketball.

There goes gayboy Sorehead again with his love for some one year wonder wantabe QB criminal felon Newton still under FBI invest saying hes the first pick? Do you think JR is that stupid? He runs a clean ship. He does not need that Auburn slime and has enuff probs with these theiving union thugz trying to rape the masses for billions jacking up gas food clothing and cable prices more.

Fire all sorry worthless union thief thugz. Hire all new players. Pay them 1000 bucks a game their true worth. Do the same for all pro-sports. Pro sports may need to be eliminated all together. Keep amateur sports only.

Always do the opposite of what loser janitor Sorehead spouts off about trying to dictate his lunacy. He needs to clean out those restrooms at the Disturber better too.

Bitchslap punk hog Peterson upside his ignorant head. "Modern day slavery"? Cutting up 9 billion dollars? Idiot pig.

Disband the NFL or at least fire all these greedy union sucks.

Why not send Sorensen and Scam Newton to Minnesota and let the Vikings have both of them.

That’s too bad that US Cable customers can’t get the 4 big games. What’s the point of March if you can’t get mad? Oh, sorry, that would make me mad. I’m glad though that I can get the games here at Dish Network on my employee account because I have TruTV. If you’re looking for basketball it’s not too late.
