The Turner Sports' NCAA March Madness Live for iPhone app enables you to watch live games from the NCAA basketball tournament, select and check your bracket, and easily track game scores, no matter where you are.


Watch live college basketball games: You don't have to be at home, in front of the TV or laptop, to watch live basketball games airing on CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV anymore. Now, you can watch from the comfort of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or over iMessage (where you can also share mood-driven stickers from the official NCAA March Madness sticker pack) from work, a cafe, or virtually anywhere. If you'd prefer to watch your games on a bigger screen, you can also stream them from the app using Apple TV or cast them using AirPlay or Chromecast.

More than video: No time to watch? You can also follow the games via the live blog or live radio.

Well-organized UI: Launch the app and you're instantly taken to the Watch page where you can start watching live games. Scroll down to find trending videos, game recaps, the latest highlights, historic gameplays, in-depth analysis, and more. Use the bottom nav to switch to Scores for the top scores organized by round and the official Bracket page; Picks, which enables you to select or check your Bracket; and Teams to set alarms for your favorite teams' games when they start or at halftime, for example, when excitement levels are at an all-time high, or when the video recap is ready.

Brackets: Go to the official Brackets page to select and then track your Bracket. If you need a little help before choosing, go to the Bracket IQ page to get a matchup analysis between any two teams or read expert articles from NCAA.com.

Notifications: Don't have time to follow a much-anticipated game? You can receive live game notifications for upsets, overtime games, close games, and your favorite teams.

Try before you buy: You can test out the app with the three-hour live video pass, but afterward, you'll have to select your TV provider under the More menu, then Ways to Watch, and sign in using your TV provider subscription log-in. While TBS, TNT, and truTV require paid subscriptions to watch, CBS does not, so you can continue watching CBS-broadcast games without logging in.


Limited Bracket views: NCAA March Madness Live offers limited ways to view your bracket. Other vantage points would be helpful, if you're looking to follow a conference or specific team, for example.

Bottom Line

Any college basketball fan would be mad not to download the NCAA March Madness Live app for iPhone.
