CBS Coverage Maps For Thursday Found

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

I've been searching for this for the past day or so, and thanks to reader KS they've been found. Here are the links to the coverage maps for Thursday's opening round games of the Tournament....

Window #1
Window #2
Window #3
Window #4

I'm working on finding Friday's now as well in case you'd like to know which game you're getting. I'm just glad I get Duke-Belmont on Thursday. Go Bruins!

Pfft, your cable sucks. Time Warner gives us, for free, the main CBS with 3 other alternate channels. You haev to keep your remote on a swivel, but you usually don't have to watch any commercials.

Comcast used to offer that up here, too, until last year. The bastards took it away.

Thanks for printing these! Was looking for them.

What does "constant" mean? Does that mean it's the broadcast area for the schools involved so the coverage won't switch if it sucks?

@ Pete, I believe so, and it will only switch when there is a close game somewhere else or if it is half or full time.

Yes, the constant feeds stay on the game no matter what. The others switch to another game if it's hotter. You'll notice they only center on the cities of the home teams of the games. That's because fans get ticked off when they switch from "their" game, even when they're winning by 30 points.

An interesting side note: at the sites, they put each constant feed on a separate TV in the concourse. If a 1 is blowing out a 16 in the arena, the majority of people are out in the concourse watching the close games on the TV's.

It's not your cable, it's whatever the local CBS station's does. However, CBS owned & operated affiliates aren't allowed to do this.

oh dear, i remember being frustrated with being forced to watch dull games and worrying about missing fanstastic finishes.

Thanks goodness Ive got directv; theyve got the monopoly on the March Madness package (in addition to the Sunday ticket monopoly). The $69 is worth it.

I meant to say that they focus on the teams playing with the constant feeds. Whatever. So if you ever wanted to know where Oral Roberts or Kent State is, there you go.

3 outta 4 games with Gus Johnson. I'll take it. I'll just use the MMOD during that crappy Dook game

Whiners. Since I live in Alaska, I've got to wake up at 8 a.m. to catch the first game. Did I mention I work at nights?

If I read that right, down here we lose GuJo but get OJ Mayo v. Michael Beasley. Could be worse for the first day.
