I remember last year CBS (or the NCAA or whoever) started charging for the online March Madness access for the first time. However, you could send a text to a certain number and receive a code that would allow you to watch again for free. I heard about that first on CF. I haven't seen anything like that this year. I can't find any information on the March Madness website about whether or not they will charge again this year (my guess is yes, since they say that it will be free for pay TV subscribers). So, does anyone know if there's a similar deal this year as last year? Or are people without cable/satellite left out in the cold this year? Thanks.

Yes, I mentioned that (at least the important bit about pay TV subscribers having free access) in my post. My question was not answered in that paragraph, at least not that I'm seeing when reading through it. Please point out where it does if I'm wrong.
