Live stream: CBS All Access (free 7-day trial)
March Madness is here at last, and the action officially begins this Sunday with the Selection Show! Often referred to as Selection Sunday, this important event sees the NCAA committees coming together to finalize brackets for the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Both men’s and women’s brackets and schedules will be finalized, and it will be quite an exciting day for college basketball fans. If you’re looking to watch Selection Sunday online, this is the guide for you!
Although Selection Sunday will air on CBS, a network traditionally only available to cable subscribers, it’s now easy to watch the Selection Sunday live stream without cable TV. There are several ways to do this, as we’ll go over in the guide below.
Get the Selection Sunday Live Stream with CBS All Access
Your top option for Selection Sunday streaming this weekend will be CBS All Access. This service is CBS’ official streaming service, which offers most people nationwide the ability to stream CBS live, online. CBS live streaming is offered in most areas, but do note that it’s not yet truly nationwide.
For those who live in an area where CBS is offered, CBS All Access will provide live streaming access to the Selection Show on Sunday. In addition to that, it will give you access to many CBS-hosted games during the NCAA tournament, as well as all the other great content that CBS airs. You’ll also get access to an on-demand library of over 8,000 episodes of popular CBS shows like The Big Bang Theory. We have more info in our CBS All Access review.
Amazingly, CBS All Access is only $5.99 per month. For the amount of content it offers, this is an absolute steal of a deal. Plus, there’s a free 7-day trial, so if you want, you can actually watch the NCAA Selection Show live stream free!
Watch Selection Sunday Online Free on NCAA.com
According to SportingNews, both CBSSports.com and NCAA.com will provide coverage of select parts of the Selection Show for free. We won’t have full info on what is covered and what isn’t until more information is published, but this could be a way to watch Selection Sunday online free.
Watch ESPN Bracketology Online with Sling TV
While Selection Sunday is happening on CBS, ESPN will also be airing their version of the coverage, called ESPN Bracketology. If you’d prefer this version of the coverage, you can easily watch ESPN Bracketology online via Sling TV and get the Selection Sunday live stream that way.
Sling TV is a streaming service that works over the internet. It provides 30+ channels to watch live on all your favorite devices, and does not require a contract to sign up. It costs only $20 per month, and offers ESPN, TNT, AMC, TBS, CNN, and many more networks.
