stream march madness live

Can Princeton continue its Cinderella run into the Elite Eight?

Viewing schedule:

Weekend Sweet 16 coverage begins Friday, March 24, at 6:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 p.m. GMT

Elite Eight coverage begins Saturday, March 25, at 6:09 p.m. ET / 10:09 p.m. GMT

Why you should tune in: March Madness started with 68 teams, and 12 remain following Thursday’s action; Connecticut, Florida Atlantic, Gonzaga, and Kansas State,  all punched their tickets to the Elite Eight. No. 15 Princeton headlines the programs hoping to survive and advance to Sunday’s games. The upset-minded Tigers have already taken down No. 2 Arizona and No. 7 Missouri in a remarkable Cinderella run. Will their stellar run end against No. 6 Creighton, or are the Tigers truly a team of destiny? You can find the entire men’s March Madness bracket here. Make sure to also check out our women’s March Madness page!

Sports fans love an underdog, and March Madness routinely provides opportunities for the so-called mid-major schools to embark on storybook runs. The last five NCAA tournaments have seen two No. 16 seeds upsetting No. 1 teams, and Princeton joined the 2021 Oral Roberts Golden Eagles and the 2022 Saint Peter’s Peacocks among No. 15 seeds that reached the Sweet 16. One school of thought is for the selection committee to take a cue from UEFA and begin using coefficients to ensure more lesser-known schools and conferences are invited to the Big Dance.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: The Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight will air across CBS and TBS. YouTube TV offers both channels and a 14-day free trial. Note that any games airing on CBS will also stream live on Paramount Plus. Although the March Madness Live app is free to download, you must have an active subscription to either a cable provider or cord-cutting service (such as YouTube TV) to stream games through the app.

MotoGP: Grand Prix of Portugal

Fabio Quartararo vies for his third straight victory in Portimão.

Viewing schedule:

Qualifying – Saturday, March 25, 10:50 a.m. local time / 6:50 a.m. ET

Race – Sunday, March 26, 3 p.m. local time / 10 a.m. ET

Why you should tune in: The 2023 MotoGP season officially kicks off in Portugal, and Francesco Bagnaia is back to defend his title. Although the Ducati Lenovo rider is the odds-on favorite to win the season’s first event, he’ll need to get past Fabio Quartararo, who has won the last two races at Algarve International Circuit. We also suggest keeping your eyes on 2018 champion Jorge Martin, who tends to look fast in qualifying and practice. Get ready for what should be another sensational racing season!

Can Honda break through after two disappointing seasons and return to challenging for a MotoGP title? Marc Márquez certainly sounds optimistic, citing his improved personal health and Honda’s offseason work and study habits. The six-time champion surprisingly failed to win a race last year, his first victory-free season since 2009.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: You can catch every MotoGP race for free with ServusTV and RTBF, which offer live streams with German and French commentary, respectively.

David Pastrnak and the NHL-best Bruins continue chasing history.

Viewing schedule:

Bruins vs. Lightning – Saturday, March 25, 1 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. GMT

Panthers vs. Rangers – Saturday, March 25, 5 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. GMT

Why you should tune in: The beat goes on for the Bruins, who boast an NHL-best 55 wins and 115 points following Thursday’s 4-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Fittingly, the Bruins have only 11 games left to earn their record 63rd victory and potentially surpass the 1976-77 Canadiens’ once-unfathomable 132 points. Let’s see how the B’s fare against Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Lightning, who are still fighting for playoff seeding. Elsewhere in the Eastern Conference, the Rangers and Panthers meet in Florida; the Panthers entered the weekend only 1 point behind the Pittsburgh Penguins for the East’s eighth and final playoff seed.

At some point, every sports fan has engaged in the semi-mindless debates about top players or which rival they’d most want on their squad. It turns out the NHL’s best and brightest are just like us! The NHL polled 626 players from all 32 teams and asked everything from who they believe is the top defenseman (Colorado’s Cale Makar) to the league’s best stick-handler (New York Rangers star Patrick Kane). Did your favorite player earn any recognition?

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: Saturday’s Bruins-Lightning game will air nationally on the NHL Network. Fubo, which offers a seven-day free trial, includes NHL Network in its elite package. You can catch Lightning-Panthers on ESPN+; subscriptions start at 10 USD.

Roglic holds a slight advantage in points, owning 22 to Evenepoel’s 20 ahead of the action resuming in Tortosa.
