Oh, March Madness. The time of year when productivity takes a nose dive as sports fans follow along to see who will win the office pool. NCAA March Madness Live is the home for all your streaming needs when it comes to the tournament, and this year the live basketball action is available on more devices than ever before. In addition to the web portal and mobile apps, March Madness Live also streams to Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku gadgets. What's more, the mobile apps also feature Google Cast and AirPlay, should you need to beam the footage to a nearby TV or in-game audio to a wireless speaker.

Apple TV owners will get a handy extra, too: split-screen viewing. Rather than having to use two displays or a laptop and tablet to follow a pair of matchups, you can watch them side-by-side with Cupertino's set-top box. That's a pretty handy addition. As you might expect, the GameCenter hub and on-demand video content have also been updated for this year's tournament, putting all the hardwood content you'd ever want at your fingertips. And yes, you can even get score updates and alerts sent to your Apple Watch. You know, in case you get pulled into a meeting during the first two rounds.

The First Four games tip off March 15th with the First Round (or the first day of insanity) following on the 17th. When the time comes, you'll be able to stream live games on 12 different platforms total, so there's no excuse for missing a single buzzer beater or bracket-busting upset.
