CBS provided further details Tuesday of its plans to allow viewers to watch the
NCAA's "March Madness" basketball competition via their computers and video
iPods. The network said that "condensed" versions of all 63 games of the
championship tournament will be available either individually for $1.99 or
together (a "season pass") for $19.99. The national semifinals and championship
game will be available unedited. Sean McManus, head of CBS News and CBS Sports,
said in a statement, "This is how CBS envisioned the future when we made the
unprecedented bundled-rights deal with the NCAA in 2003."
