March Madness Live brings multiview streaming to the web for up to four games
returns in just a few days, as the first four play-in games begin on March 14. There will be even more ways to enter the tournament this year. For the first time, there will be a multiview streaming option online. You will be able to watch up to four matches simultaneously.
Fans still have the option to use Android TV, Apple TV, Fire TV, Google TV and Xbox One. Fans apparently only wanted two simultaneous streams on connected devices. There is also a picture-in-picture option on mobile, tablet and desktop.
The online multi-view option should help make sure you don’t miss any of the action in the early rounds – especially if you happen to be working at the time. If your manager happens to approach while you’re watching March Madness games in the office, you’ll be able to hit the boss button to cover your tracks. This time, pressing the button will bring up an AI chatbot interface called BossGPT. Maybe the NCAA isn’t quite after all.
Games will stream in 1080p resolution with 5.1 surround sound. The NCAA, CBS Sports and Warner Bros. Discovery Sports (which manages the NCAA March Madness Live apps) says it has optimized the video player for improved performance across a range of devices, including older ones.
If you happen to be on the road while your team is playing, you have another way to stay up to date. It will offer live game audio through CarPlay and Android Auto. This is powered by Westwood One national feeds. A Spanish audio option will be available for Final Four and championship games.
In addition, the app will utilize . You can receive interactive notifications and have a faster way to start enjoying live games from your iPhone lock screen. You must tap an icon on the app’s results page to activate Live Activities.
You will be able to watch all games broadcast on CBS online and mobile for free without having to log in. However, you must log in to stream games broadcast on TBS, TNT and truTV digital platforms.
In addition to having access to all games from the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, there will be some coverage of the concurrent women’s tournament on the NCAA March Madness Live app and the NCAA website. It includes “game updates, legends of the game and the best Final Four moments,” according to a press release. However, you’ll have to jump over to ESPN to watch matches from the women’s tournament.
Meanwhile, the Fast Break feature, which provides live coverage of the first two rounds of March Madness, will be available on multiple devices, including set-top boxes, consoles and smart TVs. It was previously only on mobile and online. Fast Break offers highlights, real-time analysis and breakdowns of key stats.
