It's never been easier to follow March Madness online.
It's never been easier to follow March Madness online.

While in previous years the NCAA offered a pay-to-play option to watch the games online or on a smart phone, they no longer offer this. The games are all free to watch, with the caveat that if you aren't a cable subscriber, other than the games on CBS, you're limited to four total hours of viewing. For cord cutters, this might mean you having to beg your cube mate or friend from down the street to let you borrow their Time Warner or Comcast login if you reach that point (or perhaps familiarizing yourself with the incognito mode). For the TV-philes and cable sports junkies amongst us, game on.

If you're stuck at the office, as per usual, the boss button is back. But if you're still in a situation (maybe a strict work Internet filter or you do government contract work) where going through your desktop browser isn't an option, you're not totally out of luck. If you've got an iPhone or iPad with a data plan, you can download the NCAA's March Madness Live app for iOS. If you're the lucky owner of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, an S3, a Google Nexus 4, or a Nexus 7 with mobile data, they've got an Android OS version on the Google Play store as well.

Finally, if you've yet to fill out a bracket, that's okay. You've got about an hour left to do so. We've got an easy, printer ink friendly printable bracket option right here and plenty of helpful tips on how to avoid going wrong with yours. And if you want to feel validated about your pick of Ohio State going all the way to the championship game, you can see what the experts think.
