Well, the sun is shining and the birds are cheering on the college basketball teams. What? The birds in your neighbourhood are only just singing? Lame. You’re living in a lame, lame neighourhood and it’s time for you to move.
Yes, it is March, the month of fending off snakes (by drinking green beer, of course) and watching the good ole college basketball tournament.
So the games are starting and DISH has just produced three apps on their Hopper DVR. Here are the details on the 3 apps you need for March Madness so you don’t miss one minute of the hysteria.
This app is pretty straight forward. Bracket View lets you follow the tournament in real time. It displays live, upcoming, and completed games in – you guessed it – bracket view. This means that you can navigate games in all four regions, making it easy to find and tune into live games or set those games to record on your DVR. The app can also display scores and game stats, including points per game leader and field goal percentage, all in real time. On top of that, you can check out this app’s features without having to exit out of the game you’re currently watching, the game will continue to play in the corner of your TV screen.
College Sports Multi-Channel View
What’s better than a Multi-Pass? Nothing.
But this app is pretty cool too. It lets you watch four basketball games at once on one TV screen so you won’t miss a single moment, upset, buzzer beating basket, or blocked shot the moment it happens.
NCAA Top 25
This app will be your go-to tool for checking out the top 25 college basketball teams as ranked by the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches Poll. Throughout the tournament, these two polls rank teams every week based on game outcomes and performances, which might turn out to be complete stat porn for those of you out there that are into that kind of thing. Like the Bracket View app, you won’t need to exit out of a game to check out the stats, the game will continue to play in the corner of your TV screen.
Intrigued? Accessing these apps is pretty easy too. Just click on the blue button on your Hopper remote and scroll to the “Sport Hub” icon.
