The NCAA is bringing the best part of NFL Sundays to March Madness

  • The NCAA March Madness Live streaming service is launching a new feature this year that will make following the first days of the tournament easier than ever.
  • With “Fast Break,” fans will be provided with a broadcast similar to that of NFL RedZone, with a studio host flipping between the action of all the most exciting games happening at once.
  • The service should be available across a variety of platforms, including tablets, smart TV devices such as Apple TV and Roku, and online.

The NCAA is adding a new feature to its March Madness app that should make the first two days of the tournament a bit less stressful for fans obsessed with keeping up with their bracket.

As a part of the NCAA March Madness Live streaming service, the first two days of the tournament will include a “Fast Break” feature presented by AT&T and Lowe’s, which will provide college basketball fans with “whip-around coverage of every tournament game during the first two full days of tournament action, switching from game-to-game with live look-ins, quick turnaround highlights, and commentary on behalf of all the games.”

Essentially, the service will look a lot like NFL RedZone – the popular feature that keeps fans tuned into the most riveting game of NFL Sundays at all times.

For basketball fans, this feature has the potential to be a game-changer for the first two days of the tournament. Gone are the days of googling, “What channel is TruTV?” and flipping between four different channels to keep up with all the action. Instead, you’ll be able to follow every key game in one central spot.

The service will be available on a variety of platforms, including tablets, smart TV devices such as Apple TV and Roku, and online. Additionally, Apple TV users will have the option of setting up their own multi-game broadcast thanks to new features this year.
