How to watch March Madness Selection Sunday 2021 online from anywhere

Before March Madness kicks off on Thursday, March 18, the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee will need to select, seed and bracket the field for the upcoming tournament and we have all the details on how you can watch Selection Sunday 2021 on TV or online.

The committee actually began planning for March Madness 2021 all the way back in November of last year and then in February of this year, the committee heads traveled to Indianapolis where they held a scaled-down selection and seeding process. Last Tuesday though, the entire committee began to cast their ballots and debate over which teams will end up in the final bracket of 68 which is released on Selection Sunday.

When it comes to how a team can earn a bid to the NCAA tournament and be selected for the bracket, there are two ways in which it can happen. First the 32 Division 1 conferences (31 in 2021) all receive an automatic bid that they then award to the team that wins the postseason conference tournament. Any team that manages to win their conference tournament is known as an automatic qualifier. Other teams can find their way onto this year's March Madness bracket through an at-large bid. On Selection Sunday, the committee decides which 36 teams (37 in 2021) will earn an invitation to the tournament.

Whether you're rooting for your favorite college basketball team or putting together your bracket for March Madness, we'll show you exactly how to watch this year's Selection Sunday from anywhere in the world.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world.
