I love, love, love college basketball. Yes, I am the sports fanatic while W is not at all interested. I do not love it enough to pay $100+ a month to watch it. During the year I subscribe to a service through my favorite team's website. I miss out on the extra games, but I can watch the ones that are most important to me.
During March I want to watch as many games as possible. I love all of those colleges that are fighting to make it to the Big Dance. Each year I try to find the most cost effective way to watch as many games as possible. This year I starting with SlingTV. They are currently running a special. New subscribers can get the first three months of SlingTV for only $15 a month. The orange package gets you ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3. I then plan to swap over to the blue package to get TNT, TBS, and TruTV for the NCAA tournament games. I will add in CBS All Access for $6. For a total of $21 I can watch the majority of the games.
I am thrilled to be able to watch the games without breaking the budget or getting tied into an expensive satellite contract. When there are no games on, W gets to watch a bit of live television. Watching commercials again may take some getting used to for both of us though.
