Anyone watching March Madness on their Ipad 2? I have a couple questions.

    I'm trying to watch NCAA on my Apple tv but it seems that I cannot find an app that shows the games via airplay form the ipad. The ncaa.com site does not work because it needs flash player. If I buy the apple hdmi cable, would that allow me to watch directly on the tv or would the app have to specifically allow the hdmi output? Also, does anyone know a site/app that works with airplay and shows the tournament games?

    If it does work, the quality will probably be subpar - they are compressing that stream a great deal.

    have my ipad here at work watching, it's great! I think the ipad via HDMI to TV should work fine. Haven't tested though.

    There is a March Madness on Demand app that has been the app of the week for two weeks now. Go to the App Store and get it. The quality of the video seems to be totally dependent on your connection. Looks great for me.

    I actually have that app and yes it works fine. The issue I am having is that I would like to watch it on my apple tv. The March Madness app does not offer Airplay at this time though which is why I was looking for an alternative without buying the hdmi cable.

    A little light should be going off right about now and that Apple is a few moves ahead of you.

    Yep, it of course varies by connection speed.

    Looked great on my 10mbps internet via wifi at home, and awful on the slow campus wifi in my office.

    Amazing app for free... That would usually be a $15 or more app

    3g video quality is terrible this year. Not sure why as my 3g signal is strong yet I can't get a single solid video stream.

    Last year, it was just fine on 3g

    The app I got for the madness is great. Socialize, watch some of the games, check all scores and view stats. What's not to like for free and the streaming looks great. NCAA March Madness Live!
