As teams gear up for the first round games today of the NCAA Division 1 Menâ€™s Basketball Championship Tournament, viewers can plot out the ways in which they may take in a few â€“ or all â€“ of the games.
The Thursday and Friday of the first round is consistently some of the most unproductive work days of the year, as fans try to follow along with their own bracket results. And with the multiple ways to view games, it wonâ€™t be simple as keeping the TVs off in the office.
This year, the NCAA, Turner Sports and CBS Sports offer the most ways ever to track all 64 teams involved in the main games of the tournament.
NCAA March Madness Live will provide streaming access to every game. The end product will be more than 150 hours of live game coverage on television sets, computers and mobile devices.
NCAA March Madness Live will stream on devices, while the games broadcast on TNT, TBS and truTV. Fans can also access the games at NCAA.com, CBSSports.com, BleacherReport.com, the App Store, Google Play and Windows Store.
For the Final Four, which takes place April 5, fans using the NCAA digital platform will have access to three different feeds of the two games. On TV, TBS will be broadcasting the main game coverage, while TNT and truTV will be broadcasting team-specific broadcasts. CBS will be airing the championship final.
The NCAA March Madness Live comes with a bunch of special feeds and tools. For many viewers like me who lose track after the first series of games, a tool worth checking into is the programming guide that works with the TV schedule or bracket trackers. It will provide the round, date, time and network for each game.
