  1. Visit the IPVanish website and sign-up. March Madness lasts just under a month so you’ll only need a 1-month service.
  2. Download the Windows or Mac software from the “Apps” area of the IPVanish website or the app from your app store.
  3. Install the software or app, run it and log in when required.
  4. Select the United States (located in the bottom right hand corner on the desktop software)

When does the NCAA March Madness take place

March Madness will officially start on March 14-15th.

Selection will take place on Selection Sunday which is March 12th.

All the games will take place between March 14th and April 3rd, 2017.

The very first games will take place at Dayton.

NCAA March Madness

There are 68 teams from all across the United States taking part in the March Madness tournament in 2017 and with so much choice it’s going to be difficult to predict a winner.

Kentucky is currently the number 1 ranked team but it doesn’t quite mean that they’ll be dunking their way to the finals just yet.

Villanova poses a dangerous risk to Kentucky and will be looking to pull back their previously claimed title.

We’ll have to wait until Selection Sunday on March 12th to find out who makes to grade but the predictions are already coming in thick and fast.

Gonzaga, Villanova, Kansas and Baylor are likely to be number 1 seeded but who actually gets seeded and who wins the tournament is definitely subject to change.

This year throws a new curve ball in the way that teams are selected. Previously the Ratings Percentage Index has been used but after meetings between basketball’s most influential experts the way teams are selected is being remade.

No matter who eventually wins or which teams are selected, one thing is for sure and that’s that you can watch all of the March Madness college basketball with your VPN from any country in the world and never miss a dunk.
