    It’s March again and for all of you college basketball fans, you know it’s time for the college basketball tournament season to begin. You can celebrate March Madness with NCAA’s new March Madness Live app, which lets you watch all the televised games from the 2012 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Championship on your iPad or iPhone. The video coverage starts this weekend and ends with the championship game from New Orleans on April 2.

    The app itself is available for free from the iOS App Store and you can listen to all audio for each game without any cost. If you are interested in watching the games though, you’ll have to dish out an extra $3.99 for the video aspect. Rest assured though, the price will give you access to all 67 games so it should be well worth the money for you college basketball fans if you decide to make the purchase.

    Hmmm, if my memory is correct, it was completely free last year. Oh well, 3.99 isn't asking to much.

    I was kinda pissed when I saw them asking for money for what they had as a free service last year. I still have last years app so maybe that'll work for this year too lol. I doubt it though
