What channel is truTV?

Find out where you can watch the First Four as March Madness officially gets underway.

The 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament officially gets underway in not too far away Dayton, Ohio this evening. While the play-in game as it was once known was a relative non-event, now with the onset of the First Four, University of Dayton Arena is now privvy to four games in two days, two in the likeness of the once-and-former play-in contest, but two featuring two bubble teams too battling for their very tournament lives.

While in recent years you'd have to pay for access to stream a game on a device other than your computer, if you have a cable subscription, this year you can watch any games airing on TBS, TNT, or TruTV using the official NCAA March Madness Live app. Click here to download the app for your iOS device (e.g. iPhone, iPad, iPod) or click here to get it for your Android device (S3, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, et al).

As has been the case in the past, you can stream all the games free of charge through the NCAA's website.

If you live outside the Columbus area, you can use the channel finder in the upper right hand corner here to find out where you can watch truTV. If you have DirecTV, you can find it on channel 246, and if you have it on Dish, you should be able to find it on channel 204. If you're located in Columbus, Ohio, you can find truTV on Time Warner Columbus/Delaware on channel 1220 HD and channels 74/220 for SD. If you have WOW, you'll be able to find it on channel 279 HD or channel 67 SD.

In terms of the games themselves, tonight at 6:40 p.m. EDT, potential 16-seeds North Carolina A&T and Liberty kick things off with the winner advancing to face #1 overall seed, Louisville. In the second matchup, potential 11-seeds St. Mary's and Middle Tennessee State tip off at 9:10 p.m. with the winner of that getting Memphis.

Tomorrow evening, again at 6:40, Long Island-Brooklyn will take on James Madison with the winner getting Tom Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers. After that 9:10, would-be thirteen seeds La Salle and Boise State go head to head with the winner drawing four seeded Kansas State.
