    March Madness on smartphones

    What's the best way (or is there a way?) to watch the games on a phone? Android if it matters. I have a buddy riding in a car all day today and he's asking me. I haven't really looked into it since I'm working

    I'm talking video and/or audio not just score updates.

    Can he get NCAA.com? I suppose you have to have flash to play it. But thats the easiest way and its free.

    Re: March Madness on smartphones

    I know the NCAA has an app on the iPhone (NCAA March Madness On Demand) that streams video if you're in 3G and audio otherwise. Not sure if they have one for Android but I'd guess they probably do. I watched the games here at work on it yesterday and it worked like a charm.

    Does anybody know of some streaming radio sites? I have tune-in but am having trouble finding a station that carries games.

    Score one for iPhone. Can't find it on Android.

    Re: March Madness on smartphones

    Try to go to this exact web page using the standard browser.

    March Madness On Demand

    I can't tell if it will work but it looks like it will. I tried it on Opera and it kept taking me back to m.ncaa,cin, which didn't work.

    It will play the highlights so that is a good sign.

    I could upgrade my DishNetwork box and get it too but I don't watch much TV on my phone. Hopefully my current box will croak soon so I can get a new one:)

    I don't watch that often on my phone either but it works great on my laptop when I travel and also during tailgate season. A lot easier than aiming a dish. For $100 it has paid off pretty well.

    Re: March Madness on smartphones

    Who ever suggested the NCAA on demand app. gonna get some rep. It's pretty damn bad ***. Just started surfing around with it and am pretty impressed. I only have antenna tv and stream everything else. Now I can watch all of the games alot quicker than setting up laptop on my ipod.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?
