It is time for the NCAA college basketball tournament also know as March Madness! Sixty seven games over 4 weeks with each game in a “loser goes home” format has become a nationwide phenomenon. This tournament makes non-fans become big time fans as they fill our their brackets with hopes for their alma maters to make it to the Sweet Sixteen or even the Final Four. Many who just want to be part of the fun, pick schools based on their mascots, color of uniforms or even what city they are from.
Deciding how to see all 67 games with the best rivalries, upsets, and buzzer beaters has become a challenge as many games are on at the same time. The NCAA has tried to make it easier by having the games on four different channels… but how to watch 4 games at once is a trick. You can get your March Madness on with the help of Best Buy and all of the “multi-screen” technology that they have available.
Let me share some of my tips on how I maximize my viewing time and see as much as I possibly can.
I always have the “big” game on my main television, my Samsung 65 LED Smart TV. To insure that I don’t miss one single second, I have another game on the recall channel on the remote to switch quickly during commercials or timeouts.
The rest becomes a little more complicated. I will watch another game on my iPad Air where I have unlimited access to live streaming video of all 67 games of the Tournament, across TBS, CBS and TNT. That takes care of game two!
My personal computer is my third option and I turn that on and activate my Slingbox. My Slingbox allows me to watch my TV from any computer with an internet connection. This is particularly useful if you are at work and have no access to a television.
My final “go to” option is my smartphone! I am able to access CBS’s website from that and watch the fourth game. It may be difficult to watch 4 games at once, but you won’t miss a second of action using my method. And when all else fails, I always have my trusted DVR ready to rewind in case I miss a great moment so I can rewind and see it again.
Shop Best Buy and check out the latest Catch It All experience so that you can keep connected to the excitement with the devices and connectivity that make it all possible! Happy watching and good luck to your team.
