    I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    It was silly to expand to 68 teams, but they made up for it w/ availability of all games on four networks.

    Brilliant move.

    I like the 4 channel, and I love having two games at a time. Makes it pretty much an all day experience, which is awesome.

    Re: I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    I'm loving it too, although it took me a while to get the hang of knowing when to switch channels. Love that we don't have that stupid 4-6 pm break with no games on TV (even though the West ones are still going on). I think we'll really love it Saturday and Sunday when we get more games for longer.

    Yep, a big F U to Direct TV for keeping it from us for this long.

    Re: I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    I think it's great too. Can pick the games I watch on TV and not what my region gets. I know some people were complaining about the change but I don't see a real downside to it. If you don't have cable it can hurt but that's about it.

    Re: I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    I love it too. You can get into the games a little more and not have to worry about cutting away to a game you are not interested in. Plus, if your game is boring, you can switch. Much, much better. Next year....4 tv's (or 2 with PIP)! jk

    The only reason it sucks is that I know that all four games are on and I can't watch them at the same time. Had three going before (2 on split screen, 1 on laptop), but I can't concentrate on that many at a time.

    Don't hate on it simply because you are an underachiever. :)

    Good point. I didn't so much mind the break between afternoon & evening, but having the West Coast games hanging in mid-air was frustrating.

    And I won't miss the break between afternoon & evening, either.

    I agree. I also love how the spaced it out and there no longer is a 2 hour delay between sessions. There is basketball from 11 am to 11 pm.

    Re: I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    Definitely an improvement. I am ashamed to say I missed the first half of the game I wanted to see (KSU - USU) because I didn't even know I got TruTV. Now I just have to wrestle the extra TV's away from the wife and kids...

    Re: I'm loving this 4-channel tournament

    Love the 4-channel format. It's pretty much the closest thing to perfection for a hoops fan. And the bar they have on top of each channel is very nice. the one that says all the scores going on and what channel they're on, then if there is not a whole lot going on in one of them, shows the scores from completed games.
    not a fan of the increased field, but a huge fan of the television format.
