NCAA Tournament Games to Be Available Online

Dec 6, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Games from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament will be offered on the Web for free beginning March 16, CBS said Tuesday.

CBS Sports, CBS SportsLine.com and CSTV are working with the NCAA on NCAA March Madness on Demand, which will provide out-of-market games both streamed live and on-demand during the first three rounds of the tournament. Games broadcast on CBS affiliates are planned to be blacked out online in local markets, and CBS SportsLine will sell all the ads in the online games, which will be hosted at NCAAsports.com.

The online games will be promoted on CBS, on CBS SportsLine.com and through CSTV’s online properties.
