Watch March Madness Live: Fee-Based Unlimited Access?

If you're wondering how or where you're going to watch the NCAA's Basketball March Madness this year and worried that your DVR won't have room, there might be some workarounds.

According to Eric Fischer of the SportsBusiness Journal:

The new March Madness Live, rebranded from March Madness On Demand, will work primarily on a TV Everywhere-based model in which games will still be available for free streaming online on an authenticated basis. For example, a tournament game shown on TBS can also be seen live and for free online by fans who get TBS on their cable or satellite system, and authenticate themselves through the channel's website.

Fans who either cannot authenticate, or choose not to do so, can buy a $3.99 all-access pass that includes coverage of all 67 tournament games across all major digital platforms and includes live statistics and social media integration. Tournament games shown on CBS will remain free online at CBSSports.com.

Might be a pretty good deal, actually.
