NCAA Tournament 2015: TV schedule, live stream, and open thread for Thursday's games

Stay up to date and watch all the action with our live thread and various viewing platforms...

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It has arrived.  The most outstanding sporting event ever created by man returns for the 2015 season.

As you all probably know, you can literally watch March Madness on anything with a screen these days making it not only the greatest sporting event, but the most accessible event, as well.  This is fantastic for a number of reasons.  First, if you are just looking to check in on your bracket picks from time to time, you can do so easily.  For the more die-hard fan that is stuck at work, you can post up somewhere and watch games all day while having a random e-mail open the entire day (I swear I have NEVER done that before).

Mobile App

The NCAA and Turner Sports once again have their fantastic March Madness Live app which you can download on any smartphone or tablet.  All you need is a valid login for your cable provider (or your buddies cable provider) and you are set!

Live Streaming

If you are like most of those folks at work and posting up at your computer, you can hop on the March Madness Live website.  Or if you just want to open a couple computers so you can watch all the games at once, this is your spot.
