    And as for the quality - for that price you get everything from the BBC including - radio , internet , online content

    As for the quality - all subjective - some of the stuff shown on BBC is outstanding but then they do need to cater for 99% of the public
    And a lot of the stuff shown is dire.
    Wildlife is good,although the recent Live from Alaska got a bit repetitive for me.
    After that I watch very little on the BBC or Listen to anything on the Radio.
    I'm really not getting value for money.

    Re: USPGA Championship on BBC

    Re USPGA moving to May from 2019 4 Majors will be April, May, June, July instead of April, June, July, August as is now. Did they not miss a trick there as they could have moved USPGA to December or January and keep it somewhere warm like Florida, Hawaii or Arizona, give the late/early season a bit more focus?

    My sky is, probably less actually.

    Internet & online content? Isn't that the same thing?

    I genuinely can't remember the last outstanding thing I watched on the BBC. I could easily name 10 things on other broadcasters though.

    This will be rubbish, anything on the red button looks like its being filmed with a mouldy potato. As for helping grow the game, aye sure if you just happen to be browsing by babestation in the 900s or whatever it is on a freeview tuner, then you might see it on your tv guide

    Something I didn't know until this is the red button has a channel of its own hidden without pressing the red button so just tune in and the golf will be on

    Re: USPGA Championship on BBC

    I can't recall many complaints when the WGC was on the red button for a couple hours at the weekend because Sky were showing the Ladies , also when Sky have used the red button plenty times over the years to show early players instead of on a main channel , a lot of the early masters coverage is on red button and don't hear any complaints about the standard of the picture.

    Do people with now tv get sky sports red button? I haven't been able to use with sky go which I watch my golf with
    Was at my dads when the WGC was on and was suprised it wasn't on but then watched via the red button

    I'm glad I found the channel without red button can watch on bt or my freesat system with ease
