Each and every year, it’s cliche’ to say, “March into March Madness” with some sort of product or idea. Well, March Madness is here and cord cutters that are college hoops fans will still be in the middle of all the action. Sling TV will carry most of the March Madness and conference tournament games, including the national championship game on April 4, 2016. For college sports fans, this is the most exciting time of the year, especially if your favorite team is in action. For Sling TV subscribers, this can be the most economical time of the year to watch all the slam dunks and buzzer beaters.
Sling TV customers will watch games from all the big conferences like the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC. Some tournament games will be on the “Best of Live TV” package, but other games will require a subscription to “Sports Extra”, which is $5 more each month with the Best of Live TV subscription. As with most NCAA Tournament fans, you’ll be able to channel surf to watch the close games and see who advances.
When it comes to the field of 68, don’t be “on the bubble” when it comes to those first four, early week games. Those first four games on Tuesday and Wednesday can be some of the best games of the tournament. These teams are hungry and so are college hoops fans as the action starts in earnest. You can see those first round games and others as Sling TV users will see approximately 70 percent of the tournament games on TBS, truTV and TNT. Sling TV makes you part of the action and throws in a bonus.
“In addition to carrying the first four tournament games, truTV and TNT will also show “Teamcast” feeds during the semi-finals, displaying alternate game views from different perspectives,” says the Sling TV Blog.
Here is the nuts and bolts: NCAA games airing on ESPN or ESPN2 will be accessible to all “Best of Live TV” subscribers, while coverage that takes place on channels such as ESPNU, SEC Network and ESPNEWS will require a subscription to all encompassing “Sports Extra” package which is only $5 extra per month when you already have the Best of Live TV package subscription. Best of Live TV subscribers get one bonus with a free preview of truTV for the duration of the tournament (March 13-April 12). The other bonus thrown in is that truTV and TNT will feature “Teamcast” feeds during the Final Four, so viewers can play around alternate game views, different camera views and more. Kids especially love seeing these different perspectives as they get to see things they have never witnessed before when watching sports. This makes for great viewing for the entire family.
Don’t miss a singles alley oop, behind-the-back pass or technical four with Sling and then buckle up once we get to the Final Four that this year takes place in Houston. Everything is bigger in Texas and everything is better with Sling TV, including the amount of money in your bank account. For more information and to subscribe, visit Sling TV on web here.
