How To Watch All The NCAA Tournament Games At Work

Today in offices all around the Tampa Bay area as well as throughout Florida and the rest of the country not a great deal of work will get done. People will be watching college basketball as the action gets underway at nonn.

Fans who may not have seen a college game this have filled out their brackets and offices full of casual sports fans will begin to follow the games. They can see them on TV, their laptops, tablets, and phones.

So, as a public service News Talk Florida will be your guide to find where to watch the games. It is the 8th year that CBS and Turner Sports have been partners, once again they will air all 67 games of the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.

They will stream those game over 16 different outlets giving fans plenty of options to see the games wherever they want.

On TV, your computer, tablet, smartphone the folks at Turner Sports have every option covered. This week on Stream On we do a deep dive into how the streaming is going to take place as well as where to find all of the games.

My guest is Hania Poole who is the Vice President and General Manager of NCAA Digital. She is one of the key people overseeing the entire streaming operation. She is in charge of leading the teams responsible for content, operations, and product development for the business, including, the NCAA Sports App, live coverage for all NCAA Championships and the management of Turner’s award-winning NCAA March Madness Live.


We know that the games will be airing live on CBS, TNT, TBS, and truTV. Now be sure to download the NCAA March Madness app it really is the most important one to have. At the same time make sure you have the TNT, TBS, truTV and for good measure, I suggest you use the CBS All Access app as well it is worth the money.

As you know all of the about apps with exception of the CBS All Access app require pay TV subscription verification log in information. If you don’t have one I suggest you do trial with HULU LIVE, YOUTUBE LIVE, DIRECTV NOW, SONY PLAYSTATION VUE, SLING TV or try an IPTV alternative which is a good option through BOOM MEDIA.
