The selections were made on March 12th, and the first game officially happens on March 14th. Most apps have been updated with brackets and game-times, so lets get started. Download the multiple apps below and be prepared for what many consider the most exciting month in all of Sports. From the NCAA’s own app, CBS Sports, or things like the ESPN Tournament Challenge. There is something for everyone.
The official March Madness Bracket 2017 Live app is free for the iPhone, iPad, Amazon Fire, Android and Windows. With it you can watch games live from almost any device. It even allows select CBS games to be streamed for free. Although some will need a cable subscription login. Which is called a “paywall”.
Most games will be available with this app, and it’s the best place to start. It’s worth mentioning that select games on TNT, TBS and TruTV are also behind a paywall. Meaning you’ll need to sign-in with your cable subscription login info to continue watching. Keep in mind, there is a 3-hour window before you’re required to sign-in. That’s enough to catch a game or two.
March Madness live works great with the Google Chromecast, and there’s even a dedicated version for Apple TV. I’ll be using my NVIDIA Shield TV to catch all of the March Madness Bracket Live Stream excitement. Who do you have winning it all? Kansas, or maybe Duke? Let us know in the comment section below. I’m sticking with Kansas. They have some serious shooters.
Users can also simply head to March Madness Bracket to catch every game right from a browser. Whether that be on your PC, laptop, or the browser on your mobile smartphone or tablet. The same thing can be done with CBS Sports, but it may require a cable sign-in and be limited to select games based on your location. Not to mention that 3-hour limit without signing in as mentioned above. The NCAA has a guide too, for those interested.
NCAA Bracket 2017 Live Stream CBS Sports and Turner Sports have joint U.S. television broadcast rights to the Tournament under the NCAA March Madness 2017 brand. Since 2016, rights to the Final Four and championship game alternate between Turner in even-numbered years and CBS in odd-numbered years, meaning that both rounds will air on CBS in 2017. As CBS did not want the total audience to be spread across multiple outlets, there will not be localized “Team Stream” telecasts of the Final Four or championship games on Turner channels as in previous years.
Following criticism of the two-hour format of the 2016 edition, the Selection Sunday broadcast was shortened to 90 minutes. CBS Sports executive Harold Bryant promised that the unveiling of the bracket would be conducted in an “efficient” manner, and leave more time to discuss and preview the NCAA Bracket 2017 tournament.
First Four – TruTV
First and Second rounds – CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV
