How to Watch March Madness 2023

March Madness 2023 is underway and there are more than a few ways to catch your favorite college team in action.

Roku March Madness 2023

For basketball fans, March Madness is a special time of year. After watching our favorite college teams battle all season long and into their conference championships — we’re settled in for some exciting college basketball over the next few weeks.

Princeton has already delivered one of the biggest early upsets in recent memory knocking off the Arizona Wildcats and sending 99.32% of brackets into the dustbin of history. EIC Ian White, resides in the Garden State and often works from a coffee shop in Princeton and reported last night that Tigers fans were slightly delirious.

Sorry Arizona. The St. Patrick’s Day celebrations began slightly early in New Jersey.

The best way to watch March Madness is live — but that’s not an option for most people.

March Madness isn’t an official holiday, but it might as well be for dedicated college basketball fans. The NCAA Basketball Championship culminating in the Final Four has begun for 2023 and we have all of the viewing and streaming details.
