(Newser) – Even if your boss holds a doctorate in bracketology, there's a good chance your office frowns upon a workday spent watching the tourney while the company hemorrhages productivity. Has your supervisor imposed draconian measures to keep you from watching the action on the office computer? Thanks to the glories of modern technology, there are ways around it that don't have to include the 6-hour lunch, reports ABC News.

Workarounds to ensure office access to March Madness games can utilize a computer, phone, or even writstwatch. A USB TV tuner will transform your office computer into something useful, and the Sling Player Mobile for watching TV  will do the same to your cell. And there's always the wristwatch TV, though you may have to hang out by the window to get it to work.
