Here is How to Watch Every March Madness Game on Roku, Fire TV, & More Without Cable TV

MichiganBCBS Over The Air

Most Americans should be able to get CBS free over the air. All you need to get your local CBS station and a ton of basketball games is a good antenna. While you will not get all the games with an antenna, all the big ones are on CBS allowing cord cutters to watch the Final Four and National Championship without paying.

Need help finding an antenna that is right for your area? Check out our antenna recommendation guide AntennaRecommendations.com for an easy step by step guide to helping you pick out the right antenna.

TNT, TBS, TruTV, & More

For the first time Sling TV is adding truTV to their cord package as a free preview for March 13 through April 12. This allows Sling TV to offer every cable channel showing March Madness games with access to TBS, truTV, and TNT all for just $20 a month as part of the core Sling TV package. Not only that, but you will also have access to ESPN and ESPN2 for highlights and insights on the tournament. Making this a great way to catch March madness on your Roku and Fire TV.

In addition to carrying the first four tournament games, truTV and TNT will also show “Teamcast” feeds during the Final Four round, so you can experience alternate game views from different perspectives, making Sling TV a must have for any cord cutter who wants access to March Madness games.

Over the next month Sling TV will have 70% of all March Madness games. The other 30% will be carried on CBS for free and will also be streamed for free on the CBS website. So for the first time cord cutters can watch every March Madness game for just $20. That is 67 great games of college basketball at just $0.30 a game!

Sling TV works with Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Android TV, and more!

Don’t forget you can start with a free 7-day trial of Sling TV to see if it meets your needs. Even better there are no contracts so you can sign up for Sling TV and end your subscription when the tournament is over if you aren’t satisfied.

So you should be all set to watch every March Madness game on you Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Android TV, and more!

Note: You could use the new Playstation Vue service but the starting packages are $30 or $40 a month depending on where you live. So we recommend the cheaper Sling TV $20 package that gives you all the same games.

    Time to start including PlayStation Vue in these articles.

    And the forum needs a PlayStation Vue section.

      Playstation Vue Costs $30 unless you live in a market that has live local stations than it starts at $40 a month. Sling TV has every March madness game on cable for $20 a month so I decided to recommend the cheaper service that gives you the same content.

        In the interest of good journalism, it would be of most benefit to all cord cutters, if you included all options. There are not many. If you add PlayStation Vue, you’d have them all covered AFAIK.

          We did mention PS Vue but recommended the cheaper option that gives you the same thing.

            Oh, I see it at the very bottom there. If the PS Vue DVR works with the games. That may put greater value in PS Vue and justify the additional expense.

    App on both Roku and FTV says it doesn’t stream CBS games. WTF?!?! Why both then?

      The CBS App never streams sports due to licensing restrictions. Was the same during football season.

    I am talking about the March Madness Live app. According to several sources, ALL games were supposed to be streamable. On the Amazon reviews for the app I see several people with the same issue.
