Unless you're a big fan of "Lizard Lick Towing," there's a good chance you don't know what channel basketball will be on this week. We're here to help you find it.

SB Nation 2014 NCAA March Madness Coverage

The 2014 NCAA Tournament gets started on Tuesday night with two games, including a showdown between No. 12 seeds Xavier and North Carolina State. These games, along with two more contests on Wednesday night and a handful of others over the weekend, will be televised on truTV.

Unless you're a big fan of Lizard Lick Towing, Killer Karaoke or Container Wars, there's a good chance you have no idea what channel truTV is on your television. Here are the channels for those with satellite providers:

DirecTV: 246 (HD)
DISH Network: 242 (HD), 9430 (HD)

If you don't have satellite then there is also a nifty tool on truTV's website in the upper-right corner that allows you to check what channel the games are on in your neck of the woods.

In addition to every game being televised, fans can also catch the games streamed live via March Madness Live.
