The 2014 US Masters will be broadcast on both 7Mate and FoxSports this week.
In a sign of its importance to Australian sport, The Masters will be broadcast on both free-to-air and paid television by Network Seven and FoxSports respectively. FoxSports have some enhanced features and longer broadcasting hours then Seven but both are showing daily highlights and the live coverage that counts.
Both 7Mate and FoxSports3 have live coverage of the Par-3 contest at 7am on Thursday morning (Australian EST) before live coverage of the event itself begins at 5am on Friday morning.
FoxSports have added some interactive features to their coverage this year – probably something the free-to-air networks can’t do.
By hitting the red button on the Foxtel remote, you can view four extra live streaming channels of the event; coverage of Amen Corner, holes 15 and 16, featured group and an ‘in-depth’ channel – presumably to catch up on the days events quickly.
FoxSports will also be starting their coverage each day with the feed from CBS’ On The Range broadcast.
