If you don’t have a cable provider, there are still ways to watch a live stream of TruTV, namely through Sling TV or DirecTV Now.

Here’s a complete rundown of your live stream options if you don’t have cable:


How to Watch a TruTV Live Stream

There are multiple options to watch games on TruTV: Viewers who don’t have a cable subscription will want to watch through Sling TV or DirecTV Now, while viewers with a cable subscription can watch through March Madness live.

For fans without cable: Sling TV and DirecTV Now are both online streaming services that offer access to select channels, including TruTV, for a monthly fee. Both services offer a free seven-day trial, and the services are extremely similar. You can click here to launch a free trial for Sling TV and click here to launch one for DirecTV Now. See below for step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for each.

Since both offer a free trial, you can’t really go wrong with either. And if you’re unsure which service will best serve your needs, you may want to launch a free trial with both, then keep whichever you like best, and drop the other.

One key advantage to Sling is that, once the free trial ends, it’s less expensive than DirecTV Now. Sling’s Blue package, which includes TNT, TBS and TruTV, costs $25. DirecTV Now’s Live a Little package, which also includes all three channels, costs $35 per month, and it’s the least expensive package the service offers.

NBA Mock Draft 2017: Updated Order & 1st-Round Predictions as NCAA Tournament Starts

Donald Trump’s Bracket: Trump Declines NCAA Bracket Picks for ESPN

Over the last eight years, it has become an annual tradition for basketball fans to compare their NCAA tournament picks with the president. While president, Barack Obama collaborated with ESPN each year for “Barack-otology”. Fans hoping to see Donald Trump’s bracket picks will be disappointed. The president has declined to participate in the event this year.

“We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined,” ESPN said in a statement.

Despite turning down the offer, the White House has expressed interest in a future collaboration with the network. “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future,” White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks told The Washington Post.

Trump does have ties to the sports industry, but does not appear to be a massive college basketball fan. Trump attended the Army-Navy college football game last fall, a tradition Army fans hope he keeps as the Black Knights broke a 14-game losing streak.

“It is humbling, it’s a great honor but it’s a great responsibility, and when you see these incredible people — we just want to be strong, and they want to be strong. You don’t see this kind of spirit anywhere,” Trump told CBS (via The Hill).

Trump took a slight jab at the quality of football as this clip shows.

According to The Washington Post, Trump owns 17 golf courses and is an avid golfer. He played a number of sports at the New York Military Academy and was a standout first baseman on the baseball team. He also owned a USFL football team as explored by the “30 for 30” documentary Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL?.

Trump tweeted after the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. His relationship with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick has been well documented.

ESPN’s Andy Katz spoke to The Washington Post about why the bracket segment with Obama became so popular. He noted it worked because he loved basketball not simply because he was president.

“The bracket idea worked because President Obama follows basketball and is passionate about the sport. He wasn’t as dialed in to every player or team but had conversational knowledge to offer his own analysis on the NCAA tournament for the men’s and women’s game. Baracketology was a success because it was clear he was a fan of the sport and the NCAA tournament, like millions of other Americans,” Katz told The Washington Post.

He may not be living in the White House, but it did not stop Obama from filling out a bracket. Obama released his bracket picks on his foundation’s website for both the men’s and women’s NCAA tournaments. Click here to see a full rundown of Obama’s picks. Obama’s Final Four is Duke, Arizona, Kansas and North Carolina.

Obama Bracket 2017: Obama Releases NCAA Bracket Picks

Fans of ESPN’s “Barack-otology” will be glad to know Barack Obama released his bracket picks on his foundation’s website just days before the start of March Madness. While there is no ESPN segment breaking down the picks, Obama released full brackets for both the men’s and women’s NCAA tournaments.

What were Obama’s Final Four picks? Duke, Arizona, Kansas and North Carolina make up Obama’s 2017 picks. The former president has an all Carolina championship matchup with North Carolina defeating rival Duke to win the title.

On the women’s side, Obama picked UConn, Washington, Notre Dame and South Carolina. Obama has UConn defeating Notre Dame for another national championship.

With the release of the brackets, the Obama Foundation wrote about the importance of sport and shared a quote they had received.

We heard from many of you that your experiences playing sports have helped you develop confidence, an appreciation for hard work, and a positive outlook despite the ups and downs of life. We think Solomon A., from St. Louis, said it best:

‘When I think about citizenship, I think about sportsmanship. The game, whether on the field of play or in real-life, is more productive and more enjoyable when everyone has the opportunity to play, grow and succeed. A good sport, along with a good citizen, knows the main objective has nothing to do with the day’s score, but the willingness of people to continue playing no matter the outcome of a single contest.’

In keeping with tradition, Obama went chalk picking the favorites with one exception. The former president likes 14 seeded Bucknell to defeat No. 3 West Virginia. He also likes Notre Dame to defeat Gonzaga to advance to the Elite 8.

Last season, Obama picked Kansas, Texas A&M, North Carolina and Michigan State in his final four with Kansas winning the tournament. He correctly picked one (North Carolina) of four teams but did accurately pick UNC to make the title game.

Donald Trump declined to participate in the ESPN segment this year. Obama’s love of basketball has been well documented. In addition to filling out his bracket, Obama also frequently played pick-up games at the White House and attended several NBA games.
