How a VPN works for streaming

A VPN stands for virtual private network. When you connect to a VPN server location, you take on another IP address. You’re instantly able to secure your network and able to browse the web without limits.

On top of that, ExpressVPN adds an additional layer of security with minimal speed loss.

With a VPN, you can stream every March Madness game in all its glory with an added level of privacy and security.

Don’t miss the Final Four games!

No college basketball fan wants to miss out on the action just because they don’t know how to stream the games. Luckily, there’s an easy way to dribble past sketchy streaming sites and beat the buzzer with a VPN!

March Madness is one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, and while there are a few different broadcasters this year, you can catch all the games in the same place.

College basketball fans are extremely lucky because the NCAA has partnered with CBS and Turner Sports (through 2032!) to make it easier than ever to stream each and every game online. To stream them with a VPN just:

  1. Sign up for an ExpressVPN account and install the app on whichever device you want to watch March Madness on.

  3. Visit NCAA.com to watch the game live online.
  4. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the games!

Note that this year Apple users will be able to watch two games side-by-side with the March Madness Live app!
