It’s time to watch Selection Sunday’s live streams, as we see the layout of this year’s March Madness NCAA Tournament. And while we’re still figuring out who will get the other three No. 1 seeds (only one is locked so far), you can watch all the news happen with one of the newer streaming services.
Sunday’s pick is all about revealing the big bracket, so we can all see who has a chance to roll to the end, and fans can start making their picks for desk pools. Last night, however, there was news for today, as Virginia Tech stunned Duke by winning the ACC title.
From this point on, pending the end of the conference tournaments, we only really know that Gonzaga will be the No. 1 seed in the West (his fourth No. 1 in five years). That was confirmed after their 82-69 victory over St. Mary, which secured the team’s eighth WCC title in nine years.
Arizona, Auburn and Baylor are three of the top prospects for the remaining No. 1 seeds, with Baylor and Kansas battling for one of them in the Big 12 title game. Kentucky could change the math of everything, depending on how they play in their remaining matches.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Selection Sunday online, plus the full schedule and what we know about the brackets so far.
How to watch Selection Sunday online from anywhere on Earth
Hoops fans, if for some reason you’ve had to leave your own “bubble” – or you can’t get CBS where you are for some weird reason – and you can’t watch the Selection Sunday live streams you want , you’re out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can feel like you’re surfing the web from your hometown (or somewhere the power cuts won’t hit) and accessing the same streaming services you’ve already paid for.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We tested many different services and our choice for the best vpn overall is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN offers superb speeds and excellent customer service, and there’s even a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied.
How to watch Selection Sunday in the US
In the United States, Selection Sunday is CBS, which is on Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV, but they are do not on our list of the best streaming services. And they’re expensive, at $70 and $65, respectively.
So we have a different game for how to watch March Madness and Selection Sunday as well. You can catch CBS if you get Paramount Plus Premium ($9.99 per month), then you can get the other March Madness channels (TBS, TNT and truTV) through the much more affordable Sling TV Blue ($35 per month).
This all adds up to $45 per month, $20 to $25 less than going with one of the other options.
How to watch Selection Sunday in the UK
Basketball fans across the pond can follow the tournament live on BT Sportswhere ESPNHD will show everything from draft Sundays to games.
Prices differ hugely depending on whether you already have BT TV and a BT broadband subscription. If you have both you can add the Sports package for £15/month plus a £20 upfront fee, or opt for the £40/month Big Sports package which also includes all Sky Sports channels, giving you a whole lot other sports besides March Madness.
Another option for non-BT subscribers is the BT Sport monthly subscription (£25), which lets you watch via an app for a set amount of time and doesn’t require a lengthy subscription.
Everything sounds good, right? But if you’re not in the UK, you can still catch March Madness live streams on a service like ExpressVPN.
How to watch Selection Sunday in Canada
We can’t say how many March Madness games will air on TSN (TSN2, for example, has an NCAA Bracketology special on Selection Sundays), but we can see it has some NCAA Games.
However, finalists without a way to watch the matches should – like those in the UK – pick up a VPN service such as ExpressVPN for a turn.
How to watch Selection Sunday in Australia
It seems that (as was the case in previous years) Kayo Sports is your best bet for Australian streaming services that show March Madness live streams. Kayo offers a 14-day free trial for its Basic and Premium plans, more than enough time to confirm they’re actually streaming the games. The basic package costs $25 per month thereafter.
The Kayo Premium plan at $35 per month gives you the same things as the normal plan, but it offers three simultaneous streams. The basic plan gives you two streams at the same time.
If you want the full US channel broadcasts, we recommend you try ExpressVPN.
