Watching March Madness on Sling TV: all you need to know

March Madness is one of the most anticipated events of the sporting calendar and millions across the US will be looking to get a reliable March Madness live stream this month.

For bargain hunters, Sling TV will be a very appealing option indeed, offering a cheap and effective way to stream most games without the hassle of a traditional cable plan. And, what's more, it's currently offering a three-day free trial for new subscribers.

What territories is Sling TV showing March Madness?

Unlike some other high-profile sporting events (Super Bowl, we're looking at you!), no networks broadcasting March Madness are restricted to 'selected markets', and no games are subject to blackouts.

So, as long as you're in the US, you'll be able to catch every second of March Madness as it happens.

What devices are compatible with Sling TV?

Sling TV has great compatibility with a whole load of devices, which means that whatever you're using and wherever you are, you should be able to get a stream.

For Windows PC or Mac users, all you need to do is log in on the Sling TV website and get streaming from your browser. If you're using Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Android, iOS, TiVo, Xfinity or just about any other device, you'll be able to download a dedicated app.

For a full list, head through to Sling's page on supported devices, but whatever you're using, you shouldn't have much of an issue tuning in.

Where else can I see March Madness?

As outlined above, to watch every game of March Madness you'll need access to CBS, TNT, TBS, and TruTV – a combination that relatively few streaming services offer.

YouTube TV is one of those, and does offer a wider range of channels overall than Sling, but at $64.99 a month it's considerably more costly. Hulu with Live TV also runs the gamut of networks, but at $69.99 it's even pricier.

Surprisingly, sports-focused FuboTV doesn't offer TNT, TBS, or TruTV. So, while it's a great option for most sporting events, it's a no-go for anyone wanting to watch a wide variety of March Madness games.
