TV VOD company TVN Entertainment will carry CBS Sports’ coverage of the NCAA Men’s Division One Basketball Tournament in an on-demand format.
NCAA VOD: The Best of March Madness will offer high-definition content for free to subscribers of many of the major cable carriers, including Comcast, Verizon FiOS, Charter and Atlantic Broadband. The service includes customizable highlights of the games from the Sweet 16 to the championship game on April 6, and game highlights will be available within hours of the conclusion of each game.
“The VOD platform is another great way to experience the NCAA tournament,” said Steve Herbst, EVP and GM of CBS College Sports Network. “We’re pleased to welcome new affiliates and are excited so many of our associates have returned for a second year to provide their customers with the NCAA Tournament coverage they crave.”
Special NCAA men’s basketball programming will also be created for the service.
