World Cup 2014 coverage:

Men's Final Four going to cable

The SportsXchange

For the first time in NCAA Tournament history, Final Four games will be shown only on cable television, with the national championship game airing two days later on CBS.

The national semifinal games played on "Final Four Saturday" will be aired only on TBS in 2014 and 2015. CBS will televise the title game on Monday.

In 2016, all three games at the Final Four in Houston will be the first exclusively broadcast on cable (TBS). That year begins a cycle in which TBS will get the final two rounds of the tournament in even-numbered years and CBS in odd-numbered years.

The NCAA Tournament has been jointly produced by CBS Sports and Turner Sports since 2011 with coverage across multiple channels, including CBS, TNT, truTV and TBS.
