Note: Because Fubo doesn’t carry TruTV, TBS or TNT, you won’t be able to watch every game of the men’s tournament with a FuboTV subscription. And because the women’s Final Four broadcasts on ESPN+, you’ll still need an ESPN+ subscription in conjunction with your Fubo subscription. If you want one streaming platform to watch the entire tournament, you’ll need a subscription to Hulu + Live TV.

Note: Because some men’s March Madness 2024 will be broadcast on CBS, you won’t be able to watch all the men’s March Madness 2024 games with a Sling TV subscription. If you’re looking to stream the entire NCAA tournament, we suggest a subscription to Hulu + Live TV.

Watch the women’s NCAA championship game live with a digital HDTV antenna


Looking ahead, you can watch the women’s 2024 national championship game airing on ABC on TV with an affordable indoor antenna, which pulls in local over-the-air HDTV channels. Here’s the kicker: There’s no monthly charge.

For anyone living in a partially blocked-off area (those near mountains or first-floor apartments), a digital TV antenna may not pick up a good signal — or any signal at all. But for many homes, a digital TV antenna provides a seriously inexpensive way to watch March Madness without paying a cable company. Indoor TV antennas can also provide some much-needed TV backup if a storm knocks out your cable.

This amplified digital antenna with a 50-mile range can receive hundreds of HD TV channels, including NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision and more (depending on your location) and can filter out cellular and FM signals. It delivers a high-quality picture in 1080p HDTV and top-tier sound. It comes with a 10-foot digital coax cable.
