Anyone else see this? Is this just going to be a $10 price increase from the current yearly price? Thoughts?

I wish there was a viable golf option for those of us who have ditched cable, in the MLB.TV or NHL model, but whatever this is, with only Thursday/Friday morning coverage, isn't appealing.

I was told ESPN+ is also going to have PGA Tour Live as part of its package at around $60. I don't know what they're going to charge for this NBC Sports Gold but I would assume its at least that much

TM M2 3HL 16.5* (Mitsubishi Diamana Thump 65)

I hope there is some clarification soon.  I really like the PGA Tour live app, and don't want to pay for a bunch of stuff I'm not going to watch.

PGA Tour Live had a LOT of technical issues, particularly in a browser, that never seemed like they got fixed.  Videos would randomly stop playing with an error message.  The feed would randomly refresh itself causing full-screen video to shrink to normal size.  I had some issues where the audio would get out of sync as well.  I tried different browsers, computers, and even internet/wifi/wired connections -- those same issues cropped up no matter what combination I tried.  Not to mention the lack of smart TV/Chromecast/Roku/Apple TV/etc support.  Luckily I had an old Android phone I could use to cast the whole screen and audio to the TV, though.  For the $40, I wasn't about to complain, but it was far from a "good thing", IMO.

Hopefully with NBC Sports Gold those issues will go away, but I don't subscribe to any other sports through that service, so I have no experience with them.  So I remain cautious, especially since NBC seems to be the network adapting the slowest to innovative streaming/over-the-top services.

When I stream golf using the NBC sports app on a roku the sound is off every single time.
