March Madness is once again upon us, and with that brings exciting match-ups and a day full of basketball. On Thursday, 11-seeded Dayton was able to knock off sixth-seeded Ohio State in a battle of in-state teams while Harvard was able to advance to the next round for the second season in a row. In a surprise, Albany was able to stick around with Florida for a while before the Gators flexed their muscles and staved off the Great Danes, but the overall message from Thursday was the parity in college basketball.
With today's technology, you won't have to sit in front of the television to watch whatever game you'd like. In fact, if you want to use multiple devices to watch a few games at once, the new technology available allows you to do so with ease.
If you want to catch the action on TV, the games begin at 12pm on CBS, and all games will air on the variety of networks, such as CBS, TruTV, TNT and TBS. Many will remember the days where only CBS carried the games, and would be stuck watching one game until the station flipped to other games periodically. Now, every game is available for viewing with the simple change of a channel.
The games will be available through the march madness website for viewing online for those that cannot watch on regular TV. If you're stuck at work or at a prior engagement, no worries! You can access this site, and it is free.
The march madness app is available through any smart phone and is free. So, if you're stuck on the go, you can access the games anywhere, at any time.
