How to Stream March Madness?

If you want to use the March Madness Live app, you will need to use your cable or streaming subscription as authentication in order for the app to work. At the time of this writing, only Playstation Vue can be used to authenticate the March Madness Live app. For games that are played on CBS, they can be streamed on March Madness Live, but only to desktop and mobile devices.
