How you can watch the Final Four and National Championship game in VR

March Madness gets even madder

Can't get enough of March Madness? Neither can we.

And now die-hard fans can get right next to the tournament action without buying a ticket to Houston. The NCAA has announced it will live stream the Final Four and National Championship game for the first time ever in VR.

All you need to grab a courtside seat is a Samsung Gear VR and the March Madness Live app for VR, available for free in the Oculus Store.

The 180-degree experience will not only let you watch the games from the best seat in the house, it will also provide a virtual scoreboard with live stats, game commentary from Jim Nantz and Co., arena sound and a full tournament bracket, complete with video highlights.

If you don't own a Gear VR, you can still catch a 2D, 180-degree live stream on your desktop, and a 360-degree highlight reel will go up on the NCAA March Madness Facebook page at some point.

The Final Four sees Oklahoma going head-to-head with Villanova, and Syracuse looking to take down North Carolina, beginning April 2 at 3pm ET. The National Championship game tips off at 7pm ET on April 4.
