Internet sports media organization CBS SportsLine this week launched NCAA March Madness on Demand (MMOD).
NCAA MMOD is the online video player that will stream the first 56 games of the 2006 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship as they are broadcast by CBS Sports beginning March 16.
MMOD is available at www.ncaasports.com/mmod and is presented free of charge for the first time since its debut in 2003. Users can also access MMOD via links on CBS SportsLine and CSTV.com.
MMOD is expected to attract one of the largest audiences in the history of live streaming events on the Internet. Capacity will be available to provide millions of video streams during the tournament. Access to the MMOD video player will be carefully managed during peak demand times using a virtual waiting room. When demand exceeds peak capacity virtual lines will form.
