VIDEO: NCAA Men’s College Hoops… streaming to your Windows desktop!

Attention all college hoops fans:  March Madness is upon us!

Sunday, March 11th is the start of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, beginning with CBS Selection Show, and if you can’t watch your alma mater’s team while in sitting in the comfort of your couch at home, maybe you can watch it on your Windows-based computer. 

That’s right:  It’s back for another year… “NCAA March-Madness-on-Demand” is streaming the video of all Men’s collegiate tournament basketball games to your computer using Microsoft Windows Media Technologies over 300kbps connections.  (300kbps is full screen, TV-quality resolution, mind you.)
