According to the NCAA, all 67 games will be broadcast on either CBS or one of three Turner-owned channels (TBS, TNT, or TruTV).

Eastern time. It will be televised on TruTV and available to stream on March Madness Live as well. All the games will be available, but you'll need to be a subscriber to a traditional pay-TV provider to access many of them.

This year, the NCAA will live stream every single March Madness game on its March Madness Live app across sixteen different platforms!

March Madness as we now know it didn't begin until 1985, when the NCAA tournament was expanded to 64 teams.

Just like the folks, you blinked, and the Big Dance is here!

The March Madness Live app, from Turner Sports, CBS and the NCAA, lets you watch the men's basketball tournament while on the go. The 16 platforms include your iOS devices, Apple TV, Android phones and Tablets, Amazon Echo devices, Amazon Fire tablets, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, Roku and Xbox One. There are also new ways to subscribe to online TV packages, which stream numerous channels you'd get from a cable subscription.

Fans will have access to a virtual courtside seat via two ticket options, VR Ticket and VR Tournament Pass. VR Ticket costs United States dollars 2.99 per game, while VR Tournament Pass offers access to all 21 games and features available in VR for USD 19.99. Dish's Sling TV costs $25, but doesn't come with CBS. It has CBS for 78% of the US and the Turner channels - and you can use the PS Vue app to watch while on the go or to log into March Madness Live. You can use your Hulu username and password at access March Madness Live. Check before you subscribe by entering your ZIP code. Check fubo.tv for CBS coverage.

Otherwise, you can have multiple browser tabs open or watch simultaneously on a phone and a personal computer.

If you stream the games, there are some new reasons to watch via March Madness Live. It's similar to the NFL RedZone or the Olympics' Gold Zone.

The feature recalls when CBS was the only channel broadcasting games and "they would break into the other games in progress to show you the best of the best", said NCAA Digital's Poole.
