Your Cord Cutters’ Guide for March NCAA Tournaments

You may love basketball, you may love the NCAA tourney, or you may have absolutely no clue but want to stay tuned in and relevant for the office pool, and the water-cooler convos around upsets and buzzer beaters. Wherever you fall, the AirTV Blog Team has you covered on ways to watch for free via OTA (where available) and ways to watch using Sling TV (OTT subscription required) starting March 19.

What’s on AirTV

With AirTV, you can catch a total of 11 Men’s games on CBS, including the semi-finals and championship game live from Minneapolis Minnesota, with no subscription. You only need your AirTV setup and an OTA antenna.

What’s on Sling TV

  • Sling Blue ($25/month, or $15/month with new customer offer): As the most affordable way to watch tournament games this year, Sling Blue gives you access to games on TBS, TNT and even TruTV – so you can watch the opening round play-in games on March 19. Plus, watch conference tournaments like Big East on FS1 and FOX (select markets).
  • Sling Orange ($25/month, or $15/month with new customer offer): With a Sling Orange subscription, you’ll be able to watch ESPN’s 24-hour Tournament Challenge Marathon, dedicated to bracket insights, predictions and analysis on March 18 across ESPN and ESPN 2. Add Sports Extra ($5/month) to your subscription to catch top conference tournaments like Pac-12 on ESPN and Pac-12 Network, SEC on ESPN and SEC Network, Big 12 on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU and more. You can also watch NCAA tournament games on TBS and TNT, and to watch games on TruTV, add Comedy Extra to your Sling Orange subscription for $5/month more.

Keep an eye on your Sling Integrated guide for game times or visit here for official tip off times and locations for the Men’s Tourney. Visit here for info on the Women’s Tourney, which will require ESPN/ESPN2 to view all games and is available via Sling’s Orange package.

Best wishes on your bracket, and may your Cinderella teams go all the way!
