NCAA semifinals to be broadcast on three different television networks

ATLANTA -- College basketball fans will choose from three different television broadcasts of the NCAA semifinals this season.

The games' main home will be on TBS on April 5. But TNT will offer coverage from the perspective of one of the teams for each matchup, and truTV the other.

Turner Sports said Monday the broadcasts will have separate commentator crews and additional camera angles.

This is the fourth year of CBS and Turner Sports' deal to share the NCAA tournament, with games spread across CBS and the three Turner channels. The semifinals will be on cable for the first time. The championship game will remain on CBS in 2014.

The networks' plans were first reported by SportsBusiness Journal.
