Sky Sports to show The Masters live from Augusta in April

Monday, January 15th 2018 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Golf’s first major of the year will be shown live on Sky Sports for the eighth consecutive year in news that is sure to delight fans of the sport, or at least those with a Sky Sports subscription.

The Masters Tournament will once again be broadcast live from Augusta National, with all four days’ play and the annual Par 3 Contest being shown on the dedicated Sky Sports Golf channel.

As well as following the progress of Sergio Garcia as he seeks to defend the coveted Green Jacket, fans will be treated to hours of additional content.

Sky’s award-winning coverage will be fronted by David Livingstone, who’ll be joined by experts including former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley and Butch Harmon, whose father Claude Harmon Sr won the Masters in 1948.

Barney Francis, Sky Sports’ managing director, said: “This is fantastic news and our viewers can look forward to another special week at Augusta National.

“The Masters is a magical event played on a magnificent golf course. I believe our award-winning coverage and dedicated golf channel will give the best platform for a memorable tournament as part of a tremendous year of golf on Sky Sports.”

Sky TV customers can add Sky Sports Golf for £18 a month

As well as The Masters in April, Sky Sports Golf will show more than 100 tournaments throughout 2018 including the US Open, The Open, all five Women’s Majors and The Ryder Cup in September.

If you’re a Sky TV customer, you can add Sky Sports Golf to your TV package for £18 a month on a flexible 31-day contract, meaning you can swap to another Sky Sports channel once a month or even cancel completely if you like.

You can get two Sky Sports channels for £22 or all seven for £27 on these flexible contracts. Alternatively, if you’re happy to agree to an 18-month contract, you can get all seven channels – Sky Sports Golf, Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Arena – for £20 a month.

If you’re not a Sky TV customer, the best way of watching The Masters might be to get a Sky Sports Week Pass from NOW TV, which will give you seven days of sporting action for £10.99.

Your other option would probably be to get a full-on Sky Sports subscription through your TV provider.

If you’re out of contract anyway and are looking to increase your viewing options, sport-wise, the VIP TV bundle from Virgin Media includes not only all of the Sky Sports channels but also all the BT Sport channels.
