March Madness games no longer free online for all
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- Some fans will no longer be able to watch every NCAA men's basketball tournament game online for free.
Turner, CBS and the NCAA announced Thursday a new model for streaming March Madness. Games aired on CBS will still be free through the network's website. Most, but not all, viewers who get TBS, TNT and truTV on their cable or satellite systems will also be able to watch games aired on those channels for free online.
Fans will also have the option of paying $3.99 to see all games on multiple platforms -- online, mobile and tablet. The app will be available on Android phones for the first time.
About 77 million households will be able to watch the Turner channels for free online.
