The NCAA men's basketball tournament Final Four semifinals are heading to cable TV.
TBS and CBS Sports jointly announced Tuesday that the 2014 and 2015 semifinals will be on TBS. CBS will still televise the championship game in those years. Starting in 2016, the networks will alternate Final Four coverage. TBS will televise the semifinals and final in 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2024. CBS will have it in 2017, 2019, 2021 and 2023.
Also, beginning next year and running through 2024, coverage of the regional semifinals and regional finals will be split by TBS and CBS. Earlier round coverage of the tournament will continue to be televised across four national television networks -- CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV, with the First Four airing exclusively on truTV.
