Tech Culture: March Madness to go!

2:33 /

Brian Cooley has some cool ways to make the most of the NCAA Championship when you can't be at home in front of the TV.

[ music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Unless you're lucky enough to score some very hard to get tickets, watching the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament means this, a TV and a comfortable armchair. But what if you can't be here? Like if you're here, or here. I'm Brian Cooley from CNET.com and I've got some great techniques for catching every minute of March Madness wherever and whenever you want. And this year for the first time the action comes straight from the hardwood to the iPhone. You can catch all 63 games live and get on demand highlights, stats, and box scores. And of course it's not just an iPhone world, many cell phones will become March Madness mini TV's this season. Media flow technology is real digital video beamed right to your phone for rock solid reception and amazing clarity. Check with your carrier. See if it's available in your area on your phone. If you have a compatible handset and media flow coverage in your area, you'll get all the games if you're on AT&T Wireless, and east and west games on Verizon Wireless. And of course, March Madness is huge on the web at NCAA.com/MMOD. You'll find all 63 games live and in high quality silverlight streaming, which includes integrated team coverage and boards. And check this out, there's a boss button that pulls up a bogus spreadsheet, just in case. Oh, hi. After a game hit the site for highlights, full game replays, and buzzer beaters. And remember, this all goes wherever you have the net, either your desktop, notebook, or supported Symbian or Windows mobile phones. And back her in the living room check out what's new with Direct TV. They've got something called game mix this season, let's you watch 4 games at once, switch back and forth between games, check out streaming stats, and interactive brackets. It's like being in the control room. And you can take anything from your home entertainment system with you using something called a Slingbox. This little device will take anything off your home entertainment rig and stream it over the Internet, so you can pick it up on any Internet connected computer or most smart phones. To make it easy we've built you a tool kit right here on CNET.com with all the tips and tricks I've just shown you. You have no excuse left to miss any March Madness this year.
