The Prelude to the ‘Madness’

So we’ve got good news and we’ve got bad news.

The good news is that basketball fans have a lot more reasons to watch LIVE 5 WCSC this week! We’ll be carrying the opening round and quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament this Thursday and Friday.

The bad news, for soap fans, is that this means your soaps won’t air. But wait: even this “bad news” isn’t as bad as you might think! We know you don’t want to miss your favorite shows, so for the first time, we’ve gotten special permission from CBS to move the Network’s daytime lineup to our second channel, LIVE 5+, for those two days.

That means that on Thursday and Friday of this week, you can see LIVE 5 NEWS AT NOON, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, AS THE WORLD TURNS, and LET’S MAKE A DEAL from 12:00 noon until 4:00pm on LIVE 5+.

LIVE 5+ can be found over the air on WCSC Channel 5.2, or on several local cable lineups. Comcast carries LIVE 5+ on channel 212. For Knology customers, it’s on channel 146. Home TV has LIVE 5+ on channel 116, and Time Warner has us on channel 811.

And if you can’t tune in to LIVE 5+ to see the shows, they’ll also be available online at CBS.com starting in the evening on the day the shows air. And here on the LIVE 5 INSIDER, we’ll post a summary of what happened after the shows air, so you can stay caught up if you can’t catch the shows any other way.

Now, on to the games! Here’s what we’ll be carrying on LIVE 5 WCSC this week:

Opening Round – Thursday, March 11

    • Dolly,

      If you can’t tune in WCSC-TV Channel 5.2 over the air, the episodes will be available online at CBS.com after 6:00pm each night. Also, we’ll post complete synopses of the episodes at the end of the day both days, so you can stay caught up here, too.

      Unfortunately, the satellite companies are not legally required to carry Live 5+ the way that cable providers are. We urge you to call your satellite provider and tell them that you want to see Live 5+.
