    Re: Us pga black out

    I'm sure Sky will sort out a deal to broadcast the PGA live but to be honest I dont think they will lose any sleep if they do lose it as its the least of the big 4 majors,just hope the USPGA get their "new platform" coverage for the event right as it could be a complete disaster for them.I for one are more than happy with Sky's golf coverage.

    Given the reasons given by the PGA for not renewing the deal with Sky I cannot see them doing a deal with BT who must have far fewer subscribers than Sky.

    Sky have a contract with the PGA Tour until 2021, the fuss is they have lost the right to the US PGA Tour Championship, 1 event, that's all, 1 event.

    Amazing people are happy about it when some of you are tied in to a Sky Contract.

    It's the PGA Championship, the last major of the year, they have lost, not the PGA Tour Championship which is played in Sept.

    I reckon they'll have a global subscription platform where you can sign up to watch full coverage of the tournament on their website. Definitely won't be giving it away for free.

    Cheers just the one event though, the deal that has finished is with the pga of america, they haven't lost the rights to everything else as presumed above.

    Re: Us pga black out

    So they don't renew a deal with a subscription service that most golf fans have already got because they want to have more people watch it and they are then going to ask people to pay further to watch it - how does that encourage more to watch the event ? I will be amazed if it's not on a social media platform like Facebook or You Tube who will pay for the rights but will be free to air , would be even better if BBC look to get it

    Oh aye, it's only the one event, but it is still a biggie. Granted it's arguably the major with the least appeal.

    I'll not be cancelling my SKy Sports due to it. Bit of a downer though. It'll be interesting to see how they do try to broadcast it over here.
