CBS was advertising last weekend for its annual March Madness on Demand (MMOD) service, which is now available for sign-up. According to their site, it’s worthwhile to get a VIP pass now (some 61 days from Selection Sunday) because the passes are limited. Was it last year that their servers were overloaded with the throngs of fans who woke up on the Monday morning prior to the Tourney and realized they’ll have to work on Thurs/Fri again this year? This is the message you get after signing up:
CONGRATULATIONS, YOU’RE SIGNED UP!
<!– Click here to view highlights from some of the most memorable NCAA March Madness games of all time.–>
Bookmark This Page — Return to this page to launch the video player. Check back with us in early March, when you’ll be able to watch past NCAA Championship highlights before the live games begin on March 20, 2008.
As a VIP member you will have access to the live games much faster on game day. Plus, you will have access to on-demand highlights, buzzer beaters and detailed recaps all at your fingertips.
So there you have it. Now you too can contribute to the incredible $3.8B corporate timesuck known as March Madness. Or not. Us, we’ll be in Vegas anyway, contributing to their local economy in other ways.
