March Madness is coming soon to college basketball in the United States. For those of us who aren't familiar with the season, it involves 68 college basketball teams coming together to compete for the number one spot in the US. Late last month we learned that there would be an official app coming to Windows Phone and Windows 8 to allow you to watch every game this tournament. The Windows Phone app went live only last week and today we've finally got the Windows 8 counterpart.
Here are some highlighted features of the app:
- Live streaming of all the NCAA March Madness 2014 games!
- Real time scores, team and player stats
- Latest news and video highlights throughout the tournament
- Access to Capital One NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge, the official bracket game of the NCAA
- Real time game alerts for your favorite teams and for upsets, overtimes, and close games
It's worth noting that this app is specific to the United States and you’ll need to log in with your TV provider credentials to get the live streaming video access. You can download NCAA March Madness Live from the Windows Store. Be sure to grab the Windows Phone version while browsing the stores (QR code below).
