How to use your Slingbox to watch March Madness


March Madness is known to be one of the greatest sporting events each year. Rather than being one highly-anticipated game, this sports spectacle gives fans a whole month to celebrate their favorite college basketball teams.  According to Nielsen, last year’s competition was the most-watched tournament in 22 years, averaging 11.3 million total viewers.

We’re well aware of the limitations facing college basketball fans – such as keeping track of the craziness when you’re on-the-go or tuning in when you don’t have cable at your dorm. Don’t let your pesky school schedule, spring break plans or any other activities prevent you from catching the action! To help solve these problems, we’ve put together a simple guide on how to use your Slingbox to watch March Madness anywhere using your mobile device, laptop or tablet.

  • Connect your Slingbox to your home (aka parents) set-top box to “sling” the March Madness games to a mobile device anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available.
  • You can watch and control your DVR, which means you are able to record a game for later.
  • You can use a streamer like Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, or Roku to watch the tournament on a second television, in addition to catching it on your smartphone.

March Madness comes at a perfect time as the Slingbox M2 is now available online and in stores for $149.99, compared to $199.99. Being a sports fanatic isn’t as fun when you’re on the road and missing your teams, so get the most value from your cable or satellite subscription using Slingbox!

Selection Sunday is approaching; will you be using Slingbox to watch the madness?
