Turner debuted its “Teamcast” for the Final Four, broadcasting the game on three separate networks. TBS broadcast the normal stream with Jim Nantz and Co. TNT and TruTV broadcast “Teamcasts” for the individual teams playing with designated homer announcers.
This led to inevitable confusion. The game wasn’t on CBS as many would have anticipated. Most viewers would not anticipate the game being on multiple networks. Cable guide descriptions on some providers made no distinction between the streams. Charles Barkley had little sympathy for the “idiots” tweeting in, complaining about the announcers.
Yes, even when he calls you an idiot, it is charming.
