March Madness Live gives Android users total access to everything college hoops

march madness

Ah, it’s finally that time of year again. When warm spring air ushers in the end of a long, hard winter, and the beginning of the best month of the year for college basketball fans: March Madness. Whether you’re an all-season type of fan, or the kind that just tunes in for the tournament, chances are you’re not going to be able to make it to a TV to catch all 67 games this year. But fret not fellow Android user. With NCAA March Madness Live for Android, you can view every tournament game and more right from smartphone.

Available now in the Google Play store, Turner Sports Interactive has released NCAA March Madness Live. Giving Android users complete access to all 67 live NCAA basketball games, brackets, social feeds, score alerts and a heap of other in-depth information on the tournament.

The initial app download is free, but certain features, like game streams, are unavailable until you pay a $3.99 fee. Once you pay for the live streaming, you can use the same login info associated with the Android app on your desktop computer for access to games there as well. Before you buy the streaming package, make sure to check the device compatibility list in the March Madness Live app listing. The app doesn’t work on tablets, and streaming is only available for devices running Android 2.2 and 2.3.

Who are you rooting for this season? Be sure to show your team pride in the comments. As for me, I’m going all green. Go Michigan State!

To download NCAA March Madness Live for Android, just use the handy download widget below.

  • fletchtb

    I’d shell out my $4 if it worked on my Galaxy Nexus. I sure hope they get it updated before tomorrow’s games start.

      Plus one on UCONN. BY THE WAY THIS WAS free LAST YEAR INCLUDING the streaminG. NOW THEY WANT TO CHARGE ON TOP OF ALL THE AD MONEY THEY GET .while the college athlete gets nothing.. NO THANKS

      • Voliam

        College athletes get “nothing”? A $60K education is nothing? Tell that to millions of students and parents that can’t afford to go to college!

        • BiGMERF

    Bummer! Not available where I am either! Looks great tho!

  • Trevor Cameron

    Bunch of BS! What a poorly designed app. How do you launch something that only allows streaming on 2.2 and 2.3? I can’t even download it to my SGN??? I just made sure to give as many thumbs up to the one star reviews in the market!

    On a more positive note. Go big 10 and On Wisconsin, go Badgers!!!

    The app will run on most android devices, however; you will need to side-load the app onto your device since it only populates in Google Play on a handful of the 70+ android devices currently available. Have no fear, especially T-Mobile users that were slighted by having no devices listed – even though their android offerings are some of the best available with faster processors and displays with higher resolution and bigger screens than the “approved” devices. I have the app running on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 and my Galaxy S II – it works great. If you aren’t familiar with side-loading, just log into Google Play on your PC or laptop and download the application from there – then place it on your device, launch, install, enjoy!
