March Madness 2023: How to watch and stream the Final Four on CBS
This March has been crazier than most. We came into the Final Four with no No. 1, No. 2, or No. 3 seeds in the field. No. 4 UConn is the highest seed remaining, followed by a pair of No. 5 seeds at Miami and San Diego State. This year’s Dancing Cinderella is No. 9 Florida Atlanta. This is the first Final Four appearance for any school other than UConn. The last time the Final Four brought together three participants for the first time was more than 50 years ago, in 1970.
Florida Atlantic takes on San Diego State in Game 1 of Saturday at 6:09 p.m. ET (3:09 p.m. PT)with UConn and Miami in the last drink which should start at 8:49 p.m. ET (5:49 p.m. PT). Both games will be broadcast on SCS. Here’s everything you need to watch and live stream the Final Four on Saturday and the National Championship game on Monday night.

Can I stream March Madness for free?
Go to the NCAA’s March Madness Live site or use its March Madness Live app and you can watch games for free. You can watch March Madness Live on iOS and Android devices, as well as Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and Xbox. The app also supports AirPlay and Chromecast.
As with most free things, there is a catch. Without proving you’re a pay-TV subscriber, you only get a three-hour preview, after which you’ll need to log in to continue watching.
