NCAA is promising us an Android app that will be able to stream live games right on your phone. Starting this year streaming live game access will cost a one time fee of $3.99. But for a limited time you can get a free access code brought to you by Coke Zero by texting "0FLORIDASTATE" to 2653. You should get an automated reply with the access code and how to set up an account.
If the Android app is similar to the iOS one it will still allow you to do quite a bit without a subscription if you don't want to pay $3.99 once the promo above runs out. This is from the iTunes description:
NEW for 2012: live game radio of all 67 games
NEW for 2012: live social chatter for teams in every game
- Fill out your official NCAA Bracket Challenge bracket right from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad
- Track the entire bracket live throughout the tournament
- Follow live scores and player stats - including team leaders and a live lead tracker (iPad only)
- Get alerts for upsets, overtimes, crunch time (close games), and your favorite teams
- Post directly to Facebook and Twitter
- Use My Channels to see where each game is on all four networks – TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV
With the low In-App price of $3.99 you can also:
- Watch the CBS NCAA Basketball Championship Selection Show bracket selection show live on Sunday, March 11
- Watch LIVE streaming of all 67 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament games
- Watch a live stream of team practices from the Final Four®
- Watch highlights of all 67 games; highlights available right after each game (iPhone/iPod Touch only)
The app itself should be free, or at least the iOS one is. This link should redirect to the app once its live. The subscription is done separately from the app pricing. From the FAQ online this app is going to be limited to certain devices.
