For the first time, CBS Sports Network personalities Doug Gottlieb and Allie La Force will be involved with coverage of the NCAA tournament. Gottlieb’s work can be seen on TBS and TNT, with La Force’s sideline reporting on TBS and TruTV.

The madness will commence once again this week.

So as you fill out all those brackets, I’ve constructed my own for the second year since maintaining this blog: a color-coded viewing guide, complete with announcer information, as well as location info – that is, the physical location of the games, and the channel locations where you’ll be able to watch the action.

Once again, a friendly reminder on where the networks are on most cable systems:

On DirecTV, TNT is channel 245, TBS is channel 247, and TruTV is right in the middle on channel 246.

On Dish Network, TNT is channel 138, TBS is channel 139, and TruTV is channel 204.

On Verizon FiOS, TNT is channel 51 (standard definition) or 551 (high definition), and TBS is channel 52 (SD) or 552 (HD), while TruTV can be found on channel 183 (SD) or 683 (HD).

On AT&T’s “U-Verse” lineup, TNT is channel 108 (SD) or 1108 (HD), TBS is channel 112 (SD) or 1112 (HD), and TruTV can be found on channel 164 (SD) or 1164 (HD).

Once again, the regions will be color-coded as follows:

EAST: White | MIDWEST: Red | SOUTH: Orange | WEST: Hot Pink

Okay. I think we’re ready to do this then.
