PGA Tour to launch streaming TV channel in Australia next year

The PGA Tour have announced a new deal to stream live golf coverage into Australia via GOLFTV.

Have you ever thought it’d be great if the PGA Tour had their own golf channel? And you could just pay them to watch it rather than invest in a full pay TV subscription?

Well you’ll be pleased to hear that the PGA Tour are doing just that and launching GOLFTV into Australia next year.

As of January 1, 2019, Discovery and PGA Tour will partner to bring a live and on-demand international streaming service to Australia.

From the press release:

GOLFTV will offer fans a one-stop destination to access the widest range of golf content. With a growing portfolio of content, it will feature many of the sport’s most exciting moments, superstar players and tournaments on every screen and device.

Serving golf fans with an enhanced experience to both entertain and inform, GOLFTV will present more than 2,000 hours of live action each year as well as extensive premium content on-demand. Live coverage* will include the six Tours operating under the PGA TOUR umbrella and nearly 150 tournaments annually – including THE PLAYERS Championship, the FedExCup Playoffs and the Presidents Cup.

In many places around the world, the roll-out of GOLFTV will take a little while longer as the TV rights to the PGA Tour coverage expire, but Australia will be one of the first countries to see the service launched along with Canada, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia and Spain.
