How Cord Cutters Can Watch March Madness 2019

It’s that wonderful, adrenaline-packed time of year again: March Madness. The world’s best college basketball teams are competing for the title of NCAA champion, and luckily there are plenty of ways to watch the NCAA Tournament without cable in 2019. College basketball fans know that every minute of the tournament matters, so if you want to keep up with the action and see how your bracket is doing, you need to watch every game.

Use an Antenna

The good news is this year is that most of the games later in the tournament are being broadcast on CBS. So one of the easiest and most affordable ways to watch March Madness without cable is with an HD antenna. The first two rounds, Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight, Final Four, and National Championship games will all be broadcast on CBS. Rounds 1 and 2 start on March 21, while the Elite Eight will start on March 28. The Final Four and National Championship games will be broadcast on April 6 and 8, respectively. And to kick things off, Selection Sunday is on CBS as well.

HD antennas are more affordable than ever — Mohu has models as low as $18. You can even complement your antenna with all the features you would expect in a cable subscription like DVRs and even mobile streaming. With an HD antenna like Mohu and an over-the-air (OTA) DVR like Tablo, you can record every minute of the tournament and not miss a single breakaway or last-second free throw. Tablo even lets you watch your recorded games on your mobile devices from anywhere, allowing you to keep up with the tournament on the go.

Streaming Options

If you don’t have an HD antenna, luckily you can still watch the NCAA Tournament online without cable thanks to the ever-expanding menu of streaming options available. fuboTV is always an excellent choice due to the fact that fuboTV was designed from the ground up specifically for watching sports. Aside from fuboTV, many of the streaming services with live TV like Hulu Live, DIRECTV NOW, CBS All Access, or Sling TV are solid choices and can keep you up-to-the-minute with March Madness 2019.

Don’t Miss a Single Game of March Madness 2019

There are more options than ever for watching the 2019 NCAA Basketball Tournament without cable. While streaming services are always an option, a one-time purchase of an HD antenna is a no-hassle, subscription-less way to watch the tournament and cut the cord at the same time. What are you waiting for? Make your bracket picks, choose one of the methods above, and get caught up in March Madness 2019.
