The madness resumes tonight. The field has been reduced from a sweeping 64 to a sweet 16. Two No. 1 seeds have already been knocked out (bye bye, Purdue, so long, Kansas), and one double-digit seed in No. 15 Princeton has made it to the tournament's second weekend. After four games tonight and four games tomorrow, we will arrive at the Elite Eight.

Here's everything you need to know to get in on the March Madness, from the Sweet 16 to the Final Four and the national championship game.

What is the March Madness TV schedule?

The schedule and channels for the eight Sweet 16 games are listed below (all times ET).

Thursday, March 23

Friday, March 24

Here's the remaining schedule, round by round:

What does the March Madness bracket look like now?

With No. 1 Purdue and Kansas out, that leaves Alabama and Houston as the remaining top seeds. 

Two No. 2 seeds (Texas and UCLA) are still alive, along with three No. 3 seeds (Gonzaga, Kansas St. and Xavier) and two No. 4 seeds (Tennessee and UConn). 

No. 15 Princeton is the lowest seed remaining followed by No. 9 Florida Atlantic, No. 8 Arkansas, No. 7 Michigan State and No. 6 Creighton. No. 5 Miami and No. 5 San Diego State round out the Sweet 16.

The full, updated bracket can be found on the NCAA's website. 

How can I watch March Madness?

The rest of the tournament will be shown on CBS and TBS.

What channel is broadcasting the Final Four?

The Final Four and national championship game will air on CBS and stream on Paramount Plus. 

Can I stream March Madness for free?

Go to the NCAA's March Madness Live site or use its March Madness Live app and you'll be able to watch games for free. You can watch March Madness Live on iOS and Android devices along with Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV and Xbox One. The app also supports AirPlay and Chromecast.

As with most things that are free, there's a catch. Without proving you're a pay-TV subscriber, you get only a three-hour preview, after which point you'll need to log in to continue watching.

What are my other streaming options?

You can use a live TV streaming service to watch March Madness. Three of the five live TV streaming services offer the two channels needed to watch every tournament game, but keep in mind that not every service carries every local network, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries CBS in your area.

You can also use Paramount Plus to watch some, but not all, of March Madness. Only the games shown on CBS are available on Paramount Plus.
