March Madness: What channel is the Kentucky-Providence game? (Is it on Paramount+?)

It’s time for the Kentucky Wildcats’ first game of March Madness.

The Kentucky Wildcats look to avenge their First Round loss to the St. Peter’s Peacocks in the 2022 NCAA Tournament in a clash with the Providence Friars on Friday, March 17, 2023. If you’re looking for how to stream the Kentucky-Providence game, you came to the right place.

The Wildcats are the No. 6 seed and the Friars are the No. 11 seed in the East region, so the Wildcats are favored in the game. This one might be closer than people expect! Here’s how to watch every game of the NCAA Tournament.

What time is the Kentucky-Providence game?

Kentucky and Providence are scheduled to tip off at 7:10 p.m. ET at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. This is the third game of the day from Greensboro, but there’s a little gap after the previous game so it should start on time.

Is Kentucky-Providence on Paramount+?

TV Channel: CBS

Yes, technically. The Kentucky-Providence game gets one of the best timeslots on CBS. That makes sense because we have two East Coast teams going at it, and the Wildcats are one of the most popular teams in college basketball. People will tune in to watch John Calipari’s team led by Oscar Tshiebwe.

You can watch CBS with Paramount+, but you need to subscribe or get the free trial for Paramount+ Premium to watch your local CBS station. If your local station is airing Kentucky and Providence, which they should be since March Madness is a big deal.

How to stream Kentucky-Providence

If you don’t want to get Paramount+ Premium, you can also stream the game on March Madness Live, which is free for the first three hours. If you have a cable or satellite subscription, you can sign in on March Madness Live and stream unlimited games.
