With the option for most people being to watch 2018 NCAA March Madness online, the question isn’t really how to do it, it’s how to do it for free. There are those who will take to the official channels and pay a subscription fee for TV or online viewership. However, why do that when there are alternatives where you don’t have to pay anything. Besides if you’re only paying the subscription to watch March Madness, then why pay for an entire package of shows, events, and games you won’t watch? Where then does one watch March Madness for free?
- March Madness Live website
NCAA.com the site for March Madness is the product of a partnership between CBS, Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), and NCAA. Thanks to this partnership, the games are always divided between the two broadcasting companies. While TBS gets rights to all the games, CBS only broadcasts 24 games which include the final four and the championship games. This is where it gets unfortunate because all CBS games are available to stream on the website for free. TBS games on the other hand, are only available for free for the first three hours, after which you need a subscription to watch. If you’re looking to watch the games for free, you should find a schedule that highlights the CBS games and take advantage of their free live stream on the site.
- YouTube TV
YouTube TV is the absolute lifesaver when it comes to watching March Madness online for free. This online service provides you access to many networks, including TBS and all its networks such as TNT and truTV meaning you get access to all the live games. The brilliant thing with using YouTube TV is that access to all these networks is free and all you are required to do is pay the $35 subscription fee. Fortunately, you can avoid paying the fee by subscribing to the 14-day free trial after which you can log in using a different account and do the same for yet another free trial.
- Sling TV
Sling TV is yet another excellent solution to the problem at hand. While it is not an official broadcaster, it has access to the live stream of the games. At $20 a month, you get full access to Sling TV and you can stream anything you like. If you don’t feel up to paying the subscription fee on the other hand, you can always subscribe to the free trial. Officially, the free trial lasts only 7 days and as we know, it would be tedious to keep creating dummy email accounts just to subscribe to free trials for the duration of March Madness. A better solution would be using coupons to get a 30-day free trial for Sling TV.
As you might have figured out by now, you can take advantage of free trials to watch the 2018 March Madness for free. The catch is that you have to keep renewing your free trial using different email accounts to sign up, every time it expires. Nevertheless, that’s a small price to pay for the excitement of watching all the March Madness games for free.
