How to watch every NCAA college basketball game in one place

Whether you’re into NBA basketball, NCAA college basketball, NFL, or another sport like NHL and hockey, live sports can be aggravating to follow. That’s because they’re often broadcast or streamed piecemeal, which means you have to manage several platforms to catch the whole season. What if we told you that’s not actually the case and that you can tune in from a single place? It’s true, and that place is Dish Network.

With a variety of broadcast channels, including live sports channels, and a bevy of packages to choose from, Dish Network is everything you need to watch college basketball games and beyond. With its new multi-view feature you can even watch several games at once from a single screen. Or, you can catch the game on your mobile device if you’re out and about. It is a little different than most streaming services in that it requires exclusive equipment, unlike FuboTV or Sling TV, but installation and setup is quick and easy. Once you’re up and running, you’ll never need another service again. Allow us to explain further.

Why you should sign up for Dish to watch NCAA college basketball games

Let’s start with the most important part, the price and the available packages. Dish Network plans start at $85 for 190 channels, which is the America’s Top 120 plan. That includes access to 190 channels, as promised, with favorites like ESPN, Big Ten Network, NBA TV, and more. There’s no need to swap around devices or change remotes, everything is accessible from Dish, all in one convenient place. Moreover, you get a smart HD DVR with your subscription which allows you to record and playback live TV content.

Dish Network’s Game Finder app makes it easier to find what channel your favorite teams are being broadcast on, so you can instantly tune in without missing a mid-court shot. You can also use it to check real-time scores, schedule recordings of upcoming games and broadcasts, or just keep an eye on what’s happening across the league.

Comparatively, most streaming services still require that you purchase additional packages or tune in across various platforms to catch the entire college basketball season, but that’s not the case here. You can also take advantage of Dish Network’s mobile support to watch games from a computer, tablet, or mobile device, with your active subscription. So, there’s no missing out no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

We highly recommend taking a look at the Dish Network packages that are available, if you do nothing else.

Dish has ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV for basketball fans under one roof

Lately, it's become apparent that the best place to catch basketball games is Dish. They've got so much under one service and sports fans can't quit rejoicing over it. For example, you can see every NFL game on Dish. Not some on Dish, some on YouTube, and a few others on that questionably legal streaming site; just all on Dish. Basketball fans deserve similar treatment and with Dish they get it. Right now, you can get ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV together, for as low as $105 per month when you sign up for Dish. Plus, if you switch to Dish now, you get $100 back to spend how you like. That can pay for Dish's NBA League Pass or go towards a month of service, effectively giving you one month of Dish for just $5. Tap the button below to see the plans yourself, or keep reading to see why we like Dish and these channels for basketball.

Why you should sign up for Dish to watch basketball
One of the first things to recognize about the Dish service is just how inclusive it is. Which it does require installation — it is a satellite-receiver based service — that installation can go anywhere. That includes places where high speed internet companies and typical cable providers don't have the infrastructure for. You know the type of place. Plus, it has great features, like Dish multi-view, to watch 2-4 games at once and possibly even record up to 16.

How to watch multiple sports games at once on your TV
how to watch multiple sports games at once on your tv dish multi view close up

There are so many games going on these days that it is hard to keep up, even if you just commit to watching the highlights. To see them all yourself, you'd have to have an army of clones, or at least a fleet of TVs. However, with Dish Network you are able to see up to four games at once on the same TV via their multi-view feature. And, as it turns out, there are a lot of games that you can watch on Dish, especially if you are an NBA or NFL fan. You can get multi-view for yourself as part of your Dish plan, with plans starting as low as $85 per month. Tap the button below to check out the multi-view feature yourself. Then, keep reading to get more info about how it works, what it takes to access the feature, and why Dish is the best company for such a service.

Why you should try Multi-View on Dish
The most basic multi-view option is a dual view mode, available to all Dish subscribers. This allows you to either do a mini picture-in-picture selection or a side-by-side view. We like the picture-in-picture mode for when we're watching Dish Christmas movies with the family but need to keep tabs on the game as well. Side-by-side mode is perfect for watching two games at once and taking advantage of that large screen TV you bought after Thanksgiving.
