For college basketball fans, March is the biggest month of the year. The NCAA men’s basketball tournament features 67 games and over 150 hours of live coverage. While many of the games are nationally televised, many are not. Furthermore, many of the games that are televised are played at inopportune times, while many are at work or school.
Luckily for the diehard fans out there, the NCAA has a solution. Enter the NCAA March Madness Live app, which promises to allow fans to watch all 67 games live. The app is free and available in the Amazon Appstore, Apple App Store, Google Play, and Windows Store.
The big caveat is that, in order to stream some games, users need a cable subscription. Games broadcast on TBS, TNT, and truTV require fans to log in with their cable provider username and password. Games broadcast nationally on CBS — which will include the Final Four and the Chapionship game — are available to stream without a cable subscription. The app also gives users a three-hour live video pass before logging in is necessary.
Those who are following along at work or school and are unable to stream video can listen to live radio broadcasts for all 67 games.
In additional to allowing users to live stream games from any location, the March Madness Live app also feature up-to-the-minute scores and stats, an interactive bracket, live game alerts, social media integration, video recaps, and NCAA news.
