DirecTV is giving college basketball fans an easy way to follow the March Madness brackets on TV with the MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL app. This isn’t an Android or iOS app you download to your phone though. The on-screen application can be found on Channel 701 and lets you make your picks by region (East, South, Midwest, and West) and see up-to-date scores from each game. You can change your picks as many times as you want before a game is started by pressing the “Confirm” button. Before picking the Final 4 however, you need to make picks for all prior rounds.
With the app users can view their total number of correct picks compared to total number of games, choose “First Four Scores” to see the scores for all the first round games, and select “View Scores” to see the whole tournament bracket and game scores.
DirecTV subscribers can find the college basketball tournament games on local CBS stations, as well as TBS (Ch. 247), TNT (Ch. 245),TruTV (Ch. 248) and SPORTSMIX (Ch. 205).
