For the first time, the NCAA men's basketball tournament will be available online for free.
CBS, CBS.SportsLine.com and College Sports Television are teaming up with the NCAA to provide free streaming video rights for out-of-market game coverage, titled NCAA March Madness on Demand.
Beginning March 16, fans will be able to watch live broadcasts of the NCAA tournament from outside their viewing area via NCAAsports.com, the official NCAA Web site. The effort will be supported by advertising sales.
The game of primary regional interest will be shown exclusively on the local CBS affiliate. NCAA March Madness on Demand will feature other games being played at the same time.
