A recent article from TV Week brought a home a realization, an epiphany, if you will. The article discusses how the different channels airing the March Madness games are all but sold out of ad space. March Madness is upon us. College basketball team will soon be all over your TV. so you’ve got to ask yourself, is your TV ready for March Madness?
Sure, the physical representation of your TV is in question. Is your screen large enough to truly enjoy each and every game you can possibly catch over the next month? Size does matter, but so does quality and that’s where we switch from your actual television to your provider. Are you setup to catch every game? Does your provider offer all the channels? Do you currently subscribe to all those channels? You better get on the ball.
According to TV Week, Mach Madness college basketball games will be shown on CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV. TruTV? Yes, college hoops will be shown on the network formerly known as Court TV. It seems like the majority of those channels would be included in your basic cable channel lineup. However, your digital switchover box may not tune into every channel. That may be an error or a glitch in the box, but it could also be your subscription, or lack thereof. Either way, it makes sense to call up your provider to make sure you can access all the games no matter the channel.
For that matter, it may be a good time to make the jump from over the air digital signals to subscription based programming. Depending on you area, you’ll have to decide which product is best for you: cable TV providers, satellite TV providers or telco based products like AT&T U-Verse or Verizon FiOS. Whatever you choose, do it soon. Tipoff is just around the corner.
