Love March Madness 🏀 but got rid of your cable TV like many others? If you're on a budget, skip the local bars/restaurants and use our game plan to stream the games for free!
4️⃣ networks will provide coverage of the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament: TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV.
March Madness 2018 dates to remember:
- Sweet 16: Thursday, March 22 & Friday, March 23
- Elite Eight: Saturday, March 24 & Sunday, March 25
- Final Four: Saturday, March 31
- National Championship: Monday, April 2
Here are 3️⃣ ways to watch for 🆓‼️
1. Digital antenna
Most cord cutters have probably already invested in a $40 digital antenna to get local channels like CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, PBS and independent stations.
If your antenna doesn’t pick up CBS, you can stream the games using the CBS All Access app, which has a one-week free trial and costs $6/month afterward.
2. Free trials of live TV streaming services
A digital antenna will only help you with the games that are broadcast on CBS, so you may want to sign up for a free trial of a live TV streaming service to catch the March Madness games on the Turner networks.
PlayStation Vue has a 5-day free trial, but the others give you seven full days to try them out.
3. NCAA March Madness Live
If you don’t plan to watch more than one game, you can probably skip the other options and take advantage of the free 3-hour preview of the NCAA March Madness Live app, which gives pay-TV subscribers access to all 67 live games.
Keep in mind that after the free 3-hour preview ends, a paid TV subscription is required to continue watching.
