As rumoured, acquired by Eleven Sports who will stream it online only.  Available for a free trial but that doesn't help anyone who wants to watch on telly, and a nightmare for punters who will be miles behind live action with the streaming delay on top of the usual coverage delay.  Real let-down for the final major of the year.

thought last year they were thinking of selling it to twitter. no idea who eleven sports are either, but presumably for all the moaning we'll all be subscribing to them.

They have also got the rights to La Liga and Serie A so they mean business I guess.  Think they are exploring getting regular channels up on sky etc but think PGA will be too soon.  I don't know what they paid but seems a strange arrangement for both parties- they are streaming on a free trial but how many golf fans will keep it going just for some foreign football, plus if we want to watch online coverage it's not exactly hard to find anyway.  And from the PGA point of view, I thought giving it to the BBC last year was about maximum exposure but this year they have ensured the exact opposite as they will lose all casual viewers who happened to stick it on because it was on the telly.

Feels like both parties have overestimated the draw of the PGA - with the other 3 majors sport fans would go out of their way to find out how to watch, but probably not with the PGA.  So all they get is a tiny audience of hardcore (and annoyed) golf fans and I can't see how that does anything for the PGA or Eleven.

yeh I dont even think of the PGA as a major really, its more of a glorified tour event

Certainly will be next year with the date change, part of the USP was the "last shot" branding, now it's just stuck in the middle of a busy schedule.  And if this situation continues next year might as well just call the Players the 4th major, similar strength of field and we'll actually be able watch it on the telly.

PGA isn't a major in my opinion. More related to PGA Tour as opposed to an international event. The 4th major needs to move to the UK and not links courses.

champions league and europa was free online from bt sport, and miles behind

why not just stream it off pga website , although the amount of adverts they have on there
it would probably crash the internet.

Anyone risking signing up with this lot...free 7 day trial and you can cancel at anytime.I'm suspicious it wont be that easy to cancel though or am i being too cynical?

I doubt they will last as long as Setanta did. What's the point of paying for a service that is only available online? They haven't been able to secure a channel on Sky platform yet.

Eleven Sports say at least eight and a half hours of live coverage will be shown each day and highlights will be available on the website too.

PGA have surely massively misjudged this-I will not be watching it

I would hope this is a very expensive failure for Eleven sports

Even the PGA don't seem to know who they sold the rights to, as the the Pgatour website broadcast schedule shows six hours coverage each day on Sky Sports Golf!

The Elevensports 'free trial' looks very dodgy and I suspect that somewhere buried in the T+C it will tie you in to a 12 month deal. You don't pay over a million for something and then give it away for nothing.

Right, on my Live NOW it was stating 12pm, assumed be some chatter or studio stuff possibly.
Not too worried until Rory JT Tiger out there.
Cheers X for now.

Let everyone know how the cancel goes. I did the same thing on amazon prime trial, when you cancel it keeps saying over and over again are you sure you want to cancel, 'Look at all these benefits....'.And that's Amazon who we all trust. Website will probably go down MonTueWed.

NO other options really.

I'll check out the usual sources later and see if anyone has put a link up - I'd be surprised if the only way to watch it is to give credit card details to some online TV company.

Has anyone else just got pictures of Tiger hitting on the range at the moment with no commentary and a real annoying beeping sound?

This is farcical beyond belief.
