Here’s how to catch all the March Madness action


The regular-season games have wrapped up, Selection Sunday is history and March Madness action begins with the First Four games tipping off Tuesday.

Here’s how you can catch all the action.

All 67 games will be broadcast live on truTV, TNT, TBS and CBS. However, some games will take place during the day and not all of us can stay home from work for three weeks glued to the couch. Luckily, you can also catch them online if you’re stuck at work. Shh! We won’t tell!

You can stream all the games live on NCAA.com by using your cable provider login details. Major cable providers such as Cox, Dish, DirectTV, Xfinity and Time Warner Cable are on the list of providers.

And if you’ve got a smartphone, you can even catch the live games on the NCAA March Madness Live app by entering your cable provider login information. This app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone and Kindle.

Don’t let March Madness distract you too much at work, though. According to an annual March Madness report by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., an estimated 50 million Americans participate in March Madness office pools. And they also report that as a result, March Madness costs companies 1.2 billion for every unproductive hour of work during week one of the tournament.

If you don’t currently have cable, you can still follow the tournament and get news, stats and updates on the NCAA March Madness Live app along with a handful of others such as the CBS Sports, ESPN SportsCenter, Yahoo Sports and Tourney Pickem, NCAA Sports and the ESPN Tournament Challenge apps.

Catching the action on the radio is also an option. The entire NCAA Tournament will be broadcast by Westwood One Sports, according to SB Nation. And there are three options for those in Nevada. Las Vegans can listen in on ESPN Radio 1100 & 98.9 FM. For those in Reno, you can listen on Reno’s ESPN Radio 94.5 FM, and people in Sparks can listen on KFOY-AM.
