Help Viewing Final Four Games Online

Submitted by michgoblue on April 7th, 2013 at 12:29 AM

First, HOLY CRAP WE ARE GOING TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!  Go Blue and congrats to the guys.I have a viewing question that I am hoping that the MGoCommunity can help answer:  My son has watched every game this season.  Usually, we watch the first half, and then we DRV the rest and finish the next day because he is 5 and can't last too late.  This game was too late for him, but he is so excited that we are in the final four and I don't want him to miss it.  The problem is that we are leaving early tomorrow morning for a 1-week vacation.  Any way for me to watch the game with him on our iPad?  I am completely tech challenged, so any help is much appreciated.  Same question for the NC game - I will watch live Monday night with the wife from the hotel, but is there a way to download it and watch it the next day with my son?  Thanks, in advance.

Live, use the March Madness App. Works pretty well, will stream anything broadcast in the tourney by CBS free. I'm not sure about replays.

I know he's five. I have a five-year-old who was in bed. But she's a girl and my girls don't understand basketball. I honestly would consider trying to manage his sleep schedule to get him to stay up to watch. If he falls asleep on the couch, no biggie, but there's a chance at a great memory.

I was four when Kirk Gibson hit his eighth-inning home run to clinch the '84 series, and it is my earliest datable memory and earliest sports memory of any kind. Might be worth a shot.

Not 100% positive, but I think CBS hosts replays on their site. If you go to cbssports.com and look towards the upper left, there's a link that says "Watch live" (or click HERE). You should be able to select the Michigan game to watch as a replay.

don't know where you're going on vacation but this site has been great to use if you're out of the USA; http://www.firstrow1.eu/ (beware, the pop up adds are annoying)

CBS's website doesn't let you view from outside the US.  the question now is do i stay up till 3am South Africa time or go to sleep and then get up.  either way, there's no way i'm not watching this live.
