You only have to pay $4 if you don't already pay for cable. Otherwise its still free.
If they are going to charge they better have cleared up their connectivity issues. I'd gladly pay 10x that if it meant that the service would become reliable.
Whew, don't have to cough up 3.99, I only have to pay $140/mo to avoid it.

I'm sure I'll pay the $3.99 also.
Based on the reaction here, any guesses on what it'll be next year? $19.99?
(half-serious here: If 25% of the people who pay $3.99 would still pay if it were $20, wouldn't it make sense for them?)
They have advertising on there, you know. Don't make it sound like they've offered this as a charitable venture.
Having said that, if the $4 is for the entire tourney, that's no big deal. But it sounds like 95% of the country wouldn't have to anyway, if it's true that cable/satellite subscribers get it for free.
If you have one of the following providers, you can watch the games on the CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV sites without paying for the March Madness On Demand package:
Otherwise, you will be limited to whatever the CBS game is by streaming from cbssports.com, so feel free to stop freaking out if you have one of the providers listed above.
Edit: Also looks like Coke Zero is doing a promotion next week to give the MMOD access away free to a "limited number of fans" however many that ends up being.

Damn you, you stupid capitalist!
On a side note, I'm going to be in town for St Patty's.
You mean free online. I have fios and the Games better be on the channels I get every day of the year.
This. 4 bucks would be money well spent if their servers don't crap out.
$3.99 to watch March Madness in class...worth it.
Yeah, I was going to say...I don't have one of those providers, but I have the channels, and they sure as hell better be playing the games.
Bingo. Well said.
Pics of ghost's mom...
excellent news!! hopefully, all bandwidth issues will be resolved. I'd rather pay for this service and expect satisfaction than get it for free and hope for satisfaction.
Oh noes the huge corporation shelled out billions of dollars!!! They must of went broke trying to provide little old me with a service and gained nothing in the process . While I'm definitely going to pay for it, unless the quality improves, as someone else mentioned, then its a way for them make zilly more $$$$$$ while providing nothing more than they did last year. It also means it will probably be $6-8 next year.
Calmer than you are
You realize that the crappy image was a result of bandwidth issues, right? Charging will probably deter the cheapos from watching, so at the very least the bandwidth issues won't be as bad.
Sorry, thought that was implied because of the topic of the thread. Yes, this just refers to online access.
Bumping thread with details of the Coke Zero promotion..
If you text "0+michigan state" to 2653, they'll send you a promo code you can use to get free streaming access for March Madness Live, including access through iOS and Android devices.
"This is not a valid code" reply.
I typed 0 Michigan State. Need the plus?

I am getting 'shortcut expired or not available on your account'.

Six cents per game? What bullshit! Everything should be free.
