The PGA Tour has partnered with Discovery Inc to launch a new live and on-demand video-streaming service, GOLFTV which will allow golf fans access to nearly 150 tournaments annually.

The new service will launch on 1 January to regions outside the United States and will enrich the golf offering for many fans, allowing them access to more than 2,000 hours of live action each year, including tournaments such as the Players Championship, the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Presidents Cup.

Alex Kaplan, president and general manager of Discovery Golf, issued a statement: “Our long-term goal is to create a must-have experience that truly enhances the way global fans watch, play and engage with the game every day.”

Discovery and the PGA Tour said in June they were teaming up in a 12-year partnership to manage the PGA Tour’s international multi-platform rights, including for TV.
