Australian TV Schedule for 2012 US Open

Like most tournaments, if you want to watch live golf in Australia, you better have Foxtel.

Foxtel is the live broadcaster for this week’s US Open at Olympic Golf Club in San Francisco. They’ve got plenty of coverage though. Far more than what we had for the US Masters with loads of repeat viewing times. As annoying as it is for many people, FoxSports do golf coverage very well.

Live on FoxSports 3
Friday: 2am – 12pm

Saturday: 2am – 12pm
Sunday: 3am – 12pm
Monday: 6am – 12pm

Repeat viewing times

Friday: 2 – 5:30pm, 8 – 11:30pm
Saturday: 2:30 – 7:30pm
Sunday: 3 – 6am, 2:30 – 6:30pm, 7:30 – 11:30pm

    That’s very disappointing to hear that it is only on paid tv. Last year I got to record and watch a lot of the US Open and see Rory McIlroy take the course apart.

    Will have to rely on updates via the internet this year which is a shame.

    This a blight on free to air viewing.

    In the past all U.S.A majors have been live on free to air, now it is only the elite who can afford $100 plus a month to get to watch this most important event

    It started with free to air dropping the US PGA Championship then the British Open & now the US Open… it may sound impossible but will we soon have to pay to watch the Masters?

    What about the people that either can’t afford pay TV or can’t get a connection where they live.

    VERY VERY UPSETTING!

    Why in the hell do we have 0ne HD when all we get is USA crap to watch like baseball, gridiron and car racing. It is certainly not an Aussie sport channel that keeps abreast of world sports where Aussies compete at the highest level. We don’t even get the Asian Tour anymore. Shame on the free to air TV service.

    I’m pretty sure the free to air networks had the chance to get all majors and turned then down so foxtel is picking up the slack and atleast showing them. Sorry to all that don’t have foxtel coz ur going to miss a great tournament

    Yeah very bad. It is indeed impacting on golf in this Country. As a 36 year old who grew up dreaming about playing in these majors, being inspired by Norman, Faldo, Price, Elkington, Woods, Els, etc after watching every minute of the majors, it is very sad that it has come to this.

    This puts back the game in this country for sure.

    I remember Nick Faldo saying that he sough Jack Nicklaus at the Masters for the first time on the T.V. that he was randomly passing one day. So he said to his parents I would like to try this sport. And that’s he he got into the sport – because he sough Jack doing his thing back in the seventies on Free-To-Air T.V.
    How many youngster will not play golf because of The Majors (nearly all of them) not being televised?

    Poor form. I hate foxtel. I had it but I can’t justify paying $100 per month for sport. Sell outs

    Free to air TV treated us all with utter contempt.. How many delayed telecasts of sporting events did they serve us up after outbidding the ABC or SBS for them then putting them on when it suited their programming… The worst is when events ran overtime. When they were on the 17th hole or the last wicket to fall or the top of the 9th or duece in a tie breaker & now we leave this telecast for the news. That sort of contempt made me go to pay TV where the events run to their finality….

    It’s all about money. Channel 10 won’t pay for the rights if they can’t make a profit on everything. TV was once a noble beast and I was proud to be part of it for 20 years, but I left because of the slide. This would never happen if Packer was still with us
