We’re giving you a brand new way to experience the excitement of March Madness!

This year, we’re bringing March Madness straight to your laptop, tablet, and mobile phone. Customers will be able to view games airing on CBS, TNT, TBS, and TruTV.  In addition to the games, you can also see the behind-the-scenes footage, highlights, and in-depth analysis at the March Madness Live Website.

While no registration is needed to watch games that air on CBS, to watch additional footage you need to be a Great Plains Communications Cable customer.  If you aren’t currently a Cable subscriber, there is still time!  Call our Customer Response Center at 1-855-853-1483.  Those who aren’t Cable subscribers will be able to view four hours of programming without signing in.

Cable customers who are already signed up with our partner Watch TV Everywhere during the Olympics will be able to use the same login information for March Madness.  Those who haven’t registered yet, will need their account information to sign up.  This can be found on your monthly billing statement or in your eBill account.

If you’re one of the millions of fans that will be filling out a bracket, then it’s time to head on over to ESPN, which hosts a bracket competition with more than 5 million competitors.  You can create your own group or friends or you can join a conference league and see how you do against other B-ball fans from the region.

You can also engage with other fans right from the March Madness Live site in the Coke Zero NCAA March Madness Social Arena!  Fans will be able to follow individual games and tournament tweets, participate in fan chats, watch games and see highlights from other games.

*Those in Wolbach, Chapman, and Bancroft will not be eligible to stream games from TruTV.  They will have access from CBS, TNT, and TBS.
