It’s that time of the year again where everyone is going to be glued to their seat and see how accurate their brackets are this year for the 2019 NCAA March Madness tournament.
To watch the tournament this year, you’re going to need a live TV streaming service. Fortunately, in 2019, those are just about everywhere.
This year’s NCAA March Madness tournament will begin on March 19, 2019 and will be broadcasted on CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV. The top one that I am going to recommend is Sling TV, given the fact that is only $25 a month. The plan that you are going to want is the Sling Blue plan since it has all of those channels.
However, for streaming CBS on Sling TV, it may not be available in your area, which is why you need to check the number of channels from the service and see if it has the channels that you need. Local networks are typically only available in big cities, which is why we are telling you this.
Other streaming services to look into are Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, FuboTV, PlayStation Vue and DirecTV Now.
- Sling TV: 7-day free trial
- PlayStation Vue: 5-day free trial
- DirecTV Now: 7-day free trial
- YouTube TV: 5-day free trial
- Fubo TV: 7-day free trial
- Hulu with Live TV: 7-day free trial
Another way to stream games on CBS will be through CBS All Access. The service does offer a one-week free trial, which will allow you to stream games from your local CBS station through the service.
For those that have cable but are going to be away from their TV, you may stream the games live from the March Madness Live app once you have signed in with valid TV provider credentials. However, for the people who want to just watch a game or two, the service will be having a three-hour period that will allow users to stream the games that they want to watch.
All of the services mentioned here are available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. We hope everyone has fun watching the games this year.
UPDATE (03/19/2019): CBS now has a free trial of their CBS All Access streaming service for one month. To get more information, click here.
