DirecTV offers On-Screen Men’s NCAA March Madness App

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).

  1. NCAA men’s BB tourney bracket TV app is USELESS! You can’t navigate it, it disappears on you, keeps giving error messages. Another DirecTv gimmick with a bunch of hype, that isn’t ready for prime time/doesn’t perform as advertised. It’s kind of important that this thing works during the tournament, don’t you think? Get it fixed.

  2. I filled out the brackets before the start of the tourney and now the program is not showing up and has not shown up for 2 days. all I get is the add in the loop. please get it fixed!
