Puts Together Impressive iPhone App For March Madness

Posted Mar 12, 2009

This morning CBS sent me a press release about this new iPhone application that they are putting together that revolves around NCAA basketball March Madness.  It looks very impressive. is partnerning with the NCAA and MobiTV to create a March Madness on Demand application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.  This will provide basketball fans a chance to watch streaming audio and video from March Madness starting today and continuing all the way through the Men’s Final Four, taking place in Detroit.

Over a Wi-Fi connection, MobiTV will deliver live video of all 63 basketball games in the first round of the tournament through the semifinals/finals of the Final Four.  Brackets will be updated in real-time with up-to-minute scores.

The application is available for $4.99 on the Apple App Store.  This is not a bad price to pay for being able to carry around games in your pocket.  It costs less than a lunch at a fast food place.  If you’re a die-hard basketball fan like I am, I highly recommend buying this app.   Go Michigan State Spartans, Final Four Champs!
