March Madness (NCAA Basketball Tournament) - Round of 64 Starts today - TV Coverage and HD

March madness starts today with the round of 64 so you need to get your TV coverage set.

TV: Coverage
Local: Your local CBS station will be carying all of the games in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, however they switch between all the games going on at one time, this is very cool if you do not have a specific team you want to watch. If you are trying to watch your favorite team like say one of the number 1 teams like Kansas, UNC, Memphis and UCLA it is more than a little problematic because they will likely switch away from your game after your favorite team is hopefully up by over 20.

Other TV Options: Your other TV option is to watch the basketball games on Direct TV where you can see the games without interuptions if you desire. Also many games will be broadcast on DirecTV in HD on channels 706-709. Watching March Madness (NCAA Tournament) on DirecTV only works for the first three rounds and costs 69$ for full coverage (you can still watch on DirecTV later on CBS DirecTV channels 80 and 81).
