March Madness 2022 is here. But can you still watch it even if you don’t have cable? Here’s everything you need to know so you can tune in!
March Madness 2022 is now upon us, and even if you don’t have cable, there are still ample ways to tune in and watch all of the big games. There are more ways to watch movies and TV shows than ever before. Whether it be Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, or countless other streaming apps, the options for finding and watching content are pretty overwhelming.
That said, trying to watch sports content in 2022 can still be more difficult than it should be. Want to catch all of the big NBA games? You’ll need to sign up for an NBA League Pass. Interested in watching every NFL game you can find? NFL Game Pass is required. Combined with ever-shifting streaming rights across CBS, ESPN, and other networks, knowing where you can watch a specific game is no easy task — especially if you don’t have cable.
When it comes to March Madness 2022 for the men’s tournament, all games are split between CBS, TNT, TBS, and truTV. If you want to watch the March Madness women’s tournament, those games are available on ESPN. While these are traditionally thought of as cable networks, you don’t actually need cable to watch them. If you don’t have cable and don’t want to sign up for it, one of the best ways to watch March Madness is with YouTube TV. It has CBS, TNT, TBS, truTV, and all of the ESPN channels. While YouTube TV normally costs $64.99/month, you can sign up right now and get your first month for $14.99. It’ll switch to $64.99 after that first month, but that effectively lets you watch all of the March Madness games for a penny shy of $15. YouTube TV’s also available on every major platform, whether it be Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, etc.
More Tips For Watching March Madness Without Cable
Along with YouTube TV, the other best ways to watch March Madness without cable are DirecTV Stream and Hulu + Live TV. You’ll need DirecTV Stream’s $69.99/month ‘Entertainment Package’ to access all of the mens’ tournament games for March Madness. If you also want every ESPN channel to see all the women’s tournament games too, you’ll want the ‘Choice’ plan for $89.99/month. While there’s no first-month offer for $14.99 like YouTube TV, DirecTV does discount the first three months of service for new customers — offering the Entertainment plan for $59.99/month and the Choice one for $79.99/month. DirecTV Stream is also available for most devices. It has apps for Roku, Apple TV, Android, Fire TV, iOS, and more.
Another option is Hulu + Live TV. It gives you every channel necessary for the men’s and women’s March Madness tournaments and is available for $69.99/month. Hulu doesn’t currently have any discount for new subscribers, but that $69.99/month rate also includes Disney+, ESPN+, and everything else on Hulu. And since the live TV service is baked into Hulu, you can watch March Madness on any device that has the Hulu app.
In addition to watching the games through the standard apps for YouTube TV, Hulu, etc., you can also link your accounts for these services to the official March Madness app. The March Madness Live app is available for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Google TV, and Fire TV. Download the app, follow the instructions to link your TV provider, and all of the games will be available there. Not only does this make it easier to focus on the games, but the March Madness app also lets you quickly see scores, upcoming games, and the current standings for the official bracket. Choose one of the above services, set up the March Madness app, and you’ll be watching March Madness without cable like a pro.
