GOLFTV. Another line item for your budget. Will be interesting to see the price tag and what you get. Guess all the folks who thought the Match on PPV would be a bust didn't realize it was actually a glimpse into the future.

Guessing some $$$ in this for Tiger to agree to this kind of access and not own the rights.

LOL at "nourishing" golf fans.  Do the Tiger fans that will pee their pants over this need Gerber baby peas or raw meat for nourishment? I'm talking to you Basic!!!!!!!!

Just kidding.  I actually think it could be interesting if done as it is being presented, but I don't know how they draw Tiger out that much or how he loosens up for something like this, but I'm sure he's getting paid regardless.

May be something golf fans in general may enjoy.

This is good. Competition for the Golf Channel. I like the Golf Channel but some of their programming is getting a little tired. It will be great to have two choices for watching golf and some fresh new programming.

Interesting to see how it works out, the promise of extra access to TW is in itself intriguing, although I would be sceptical as to how much genuinely interesting content it will result in. If it was anything like the banter during 'The Match' then oh dear.

For those of you who are not current with technology and trends, this is cray-cray, good...Focused service delivery on a global platform is exactly what's needed in order to grow the game without borders. China and India, come to mind right away.. (If you heard his interview yesterday with the Head of HERO motorcorp, then it makes sense)  Tiger will cement his legacy now on a global platform.

Looks interesting....

I wonder if they will try to poach some talent from TGC.

Finding golf content for a 24/7 operation has got to be challenging. If this is the new home of all PGA Tour content it could be a serious blow to TGC.

Anyone know when TGC's contract to show the PGA Tour expires?

There will be growing pains, just as there was for the NFL channel.  Golf channel pays a lot of money for the broadcast rights, the PGA Tour would potentially lose some money if their partnership took over their broadcasts exclusively from Golf Channel unless they believe the money made from advertisers would exceed the bid price.  

This could be good for golf overall, two channels of golf content.  If the PGA Tour broadcast rights were taken over by GolfTV that would free up the Golf Channel to expand their coverage of the LPGA, Champions and Web.com Tours.

Much as I love golf, I don't think the sport can sustain two dedicated channels. I'm hopeful I will be proven wrong.

I've just trade marked "TigerWoodsGOLFTV.WRX.com" a website/discussion board that will solely be focused on talking about TW and this new channel, the content, clubs, which tees he plays, how far he hits a 7 iron, if he wears jeans on the course, the music he listens to and whether he turns it down if someone is close by, changes to ANGC, his thoughts on the cost of a fitting at Club Champion, best fitting rain gear and the Hero Challenge.

I am reading into this as additional coverage for the big events, not exclusive coverage.  Sort of like Wimbledon which is on what?  three channels at once?  So maybe this could be good because we get a chance to see something unthinkable on the major networks - tour players hitting shots!

Agree. Between reruns and shows like Driver vs. Driver, Golf Channel is unwatchable for a good part of the day. A second channel dilutes content even more. PGA Tour broadcasts are where it's at. I don't think TGC is looking forward to losing PGA Tour rights so they can expand their LPGA, Seniors, and web.com coverage.

This is big news and a huge attack on the other golf media.

GOLFTV powered by PGA TOUR will be available to fans starting January 2019*. It will present more than 2,000 hours of live action each year as well as a wide range of premium content on-demand, featuring the sport’s most exciting moments, superstar players and tournaments on every screen and device. Live coverage of the PGA TOUR will be extensive and include THE PLAYERS Championship, the FedExCup Playoffs and the Presidents Cup.

Definitely see this as a move away from multiple networks having coverage split over the season kinda like what we have with Sky Sports. All of the PGA Tour Golf and all of the European Tour golf in on there. It seems to work pretty good. That said, the impact on the PGA Tour's deal with the Discovery Channel is likely to mess all of that up in a few years time.

I’d like to see more casual rounds and instruction that is “course” based. Swing instruction doesn’t work for TV, every swing is different. What TV instruction can provide is the insight from a pro as they’re playing a round, decision making, where to tee, where to miss etc...

Golf channel does have the playing lessons show but it falls short... it’s only 30 min and 9 holes... I’d like to watch a full round and listen in while a tour player plots along... maybe in a pro am or money match setting
