With two college basketball teams from the state of Georgia in the men’s field of 68, “March Madness” could take on a new meaning in the Peach State.
If you are DISH subscriber and a college hoops fan, you are in luck with three new apps available on your system.
Tournament opening rounds are underway and with three unique apps on our Hopper DVR, DISH customers won’t miss a minute of the madness. They are: Bracket View, College Sports Multi-Channel View and NCAA Top 25 Rankings.
This app is both as simple and as useful as its name indicates. Now you can follow the tournament in real time by displaying live, upcoming and completed games in, well, a bracket view. Track how the Bulldogs and Panthers are doing. You can navigate games in all four regions – Midwest, East, West and South – so it’s easy to find and tune to live games or set scheduled games to record. The app also displays real-time scores and game stats, including points per game leader, field goal percentage and 3-point field percentage. The best part is that you can check out this app without exiting a game you’re watching—it will continue to play in the top left corner of your TV screen.
College Sports Multi-Channel View
What’s better than one basketball game? Four. Our College Sports Multi-Channel View app lets you watch up to four games on one TV screen so you catch every upset, buzzer beater and blocked shot the moment it happens.
NCAA Top 25
This app lists the top 25 college basketball teams as ranked by the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches Poll. Throughout the tournament, the two polls will rank teams every week based on game outcomes and performances. And, similar to our Bracket View app, you don’t have to miss a minute of the game you’re watching, as it will continue to air in the top left corner of your TV screen.
As with any DISH app, these are easy to use. Simply click the blue button on your Hopper remote and scroll to the “Sports Hub” icon. Then start watching all the slam dunks, buzzer beaters and technical fouls. Have fun!
