Watch 2012 NCAA March Madness Basketball Games Online

In previous years, you could stream the NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Championship online and through a number of mobile devices for free. In 2012, things have changed a bit. Streaming the basketball tournament is no longer free, but CBS, the NCAA and their partners have made it very cheap and accessible. In fact, I wish more sports operated like this.

For just $4, you can watch all 67 games of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament live on your computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and select Android phones (full list of supported devices here).

  • To get started online, visit or download the the app in the iTunes and Android stores.
  • Create a 2012 March Madness Live account
  • Login on your device of choice and you’ll be able to stream the basketball tournament live, listen to live radio coverage, track brackets, get upset alerts and send updates to your social networks.

You DO NOT have to pay separately to stream the basketball tournament to different devices. Simply login with your March Madness account.

    Once you have subscribed to NCAA, Is there an option to stream it to a tv through a playon plugin or a Boxee device?

      Not sure about Boxee or Playon. I do know that the app doesn’t offer AirPlay support, so you can’t push it to your Apple TV.
