March Madness now more available than ever

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Sneaking out to a sports bar for lunch during the NCAA Tournament is so 2012.

"Nowadays, you can actually access March Madness through a connected tablet like an iPad, just logging into ncaa.com/march-madness," said Stan Kilp, general manager of Savannah's Best Buy store,

And by doing so, you can bring the tournament to you, wherever you happen to be.

"With a connected tablet, you can take it to work, if you're allowed, and watch it there," said Kilp.

And if you're not allowed?

"You can quickly hit a button and switch off and some people might use a privacy setting," said Kilp. "But it's something you shouldn't be doing at work. We don't advise it."

With a free March Madness app, the tournament has become available anyplace on a variety of platforms.

Previews, stats, and game broadcasts can be viewed on tablets, smart phones and laptops, making the tournament as accessible as it now is scrutinized.

"It's definitely a new level of excitement with the devices," said Kilp. "March Madness seems like it keeps growing. I think it really adds to the drive to watch it, and I think it adds a lot of excitement."

But with a function that also allows fans to fill out and track brackets digitally, what to do with those old tournament sheets that were once as much a part of march as St. Patrick's Day?

"Well," said Kilp, "you might want to just have them to make paper airplanes with."
