Looking forward to the wall to wall coverage.Can't seem to find today's and tomorrow's on the range.Never mind no doubt blanket coverage for the 4 days will be exceptional.

The problem with the red button coverage is the awful picture quality if you are used to watching golf in HD.  Also you can't record it.

This i confidently predict will be an absolute unmitigated disaster....6hrs coverage of final major and on the RED Button.Utter ****g nonsense,why bid at all?
And we will all then understand how good Skys big events are.
Standard tourneys still terrible but that generally down to picking up the US feed,wall to wall ads,and drivel.

So likely no coverage of Matsy,Spiffy,DJ, Live, amongst others day one then??Or do we have any other coverage elsewhere?Or on BBC?
Report Mighty Whites 2008 August 9, 2017 11:23 PM BST
Poor that the bbc don't have it on live on a proper channel although i believe it will only be like this because of the athletics not sure why one can't be on bbc 1 and one on bbc 2

The only advantage of the bbc is events on there often have better liquidity back in the day the bmw pga championship event was one of the biggest events on here for volume of bets but this will probably be negated by the red button cant see many other than the die hards pressing the red button

IMG deal with the PGA media rights and the word is they wanted to jack up the prices and Sky walked away.  Would have thought an agreement could've been reached as there's no way the BBC are paying as much as Sky would have, and Sky should really have paid a bit more to preserve their major monopoly, seems like things are falling apart for them a bit.

There's the usual flannel about the PGA wanting it on free to air to spread the game etc but I'm not sure some grainy red button footage commentated on by a bunch of bored old men is going to substantially grow the game or their brand.
