The Open Championship TV Schedule has been released ahead of this event at Royal Liverpool and golf fans across the world are in for a treat with wall-to-wall action on the table in both the UK and USA. As the fourth and final major of the season, the tournament provides golfers with one final opportunity to make history before attention turns to the Ryder Cup and the Fed Ex Cup. 

One player who will be more revved up than most will be Rory McIlroy who has gone nine years without tasting major success on tour. For someone of his ability, it is a run that should never have happened but this week presents him with a chance to get the money off his back. After his win at the Scottish Open last weekend, McIlroy is in his best form of the season and goes into Hoylake as the favourite

Play is set to begin on Thursday morning with the weather forecast looking okay for the opening round. If you haven’t been able to buy tickets for the Open Championship but still want to catch all of the action on TV, then here is everything you need to know. 

How to watch the 2023 Open Championship?

UK viewing options

To watch the 2023 Open Championship in the UK, you will need a subscription to SkySports Golf. While the tournament used to be shown live on free-to-air television, that hasn’t been the case since Sky bought exclusive rights in 2017. All four days of the 2023 Open Championship will be shown live on Sky Sports Golf and Main Event.

If you don’t want to pay for a Sky Sports subscription then highlights will be shown on BBC TWO each night following the completion of each round.

USA viewing options

Fans in the USA will be able to watch the 2023 Open Championship across two separate stations. On Thursday and Friday, USA will exclusively air the tournament while NBC takes over for the weekend as the tournament draws to a close. Fans will still be able to catch the early action on Saturday and Sunday on USA but they will need to switch over to NBC for the conclusion of each day.

How to stream the 2023 Open Championship?

UK streaming options

To stream the Open Championship in the UK, fans have two options available to them. Firstly, Sky Sports subscribers will be able to stream the action live via SkyGo – Sky’s exclusive streaming platform. The second option, for non-Sky Customers, is to purchase a Now TV pass. Passes can be bought either on a daily or monthly basis with a day pass costing £11.98 and a monthly pass currently costing £21.

If you are planning on watching more than one day of action at Royal Liverpool then it would be more beneficial to purchase the monthly pass.

USA streaming options

Fans in the USA also have a few different options when it comes to streaming the Open Championship. Across all four days, Peacock will be showing morning and evening coverage while USA Network will be showing exclusive coverage in the middle of each day.
