Cord Cutter’s Guide to the 2017 PGA Championship

Cord cutting used to be difficult for golf fans. But those days are long gone. With the 2017 PGA Championship getting underway, there are plenty of ways to catch all the action taking place at the Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina.

The action will be spread across two stations: CBS and TNT. The former is great news for antenna-users, the latter requiring a bit more work. But no worries—we’ve got you covered.

What Coverage Will an Antenna Get You?

The tournament lasts four days. The first two days are entirely on TNT, so an antenna won’t help you there. However, the weekend is what really matters… more specifically, prime time. And that’s where your Mohu antenna comes in handy.

Saturday and Sunday, CBS will cover the tournament live from 2-7 ET each day. That means you can watch the most important part of round 3 and the finals free in HD.

Can’t pick up CBS in your location? In that case, you might have a few viable options for streaming the station. Checkout this CBS live streaming guide for the details.

How to Watch TNT Coverage without Cable

If you want to watch weekday coverage, or the morning/early afternoon coverage, then you need TNT, which is traditionally a cable-only channel. However, there are a few ways to stream TNT without cable. A few quick options for you:

DIRECTV NOW—DIRECTV NOW starts at $35 per month, offering over 60 channels. It’s probably the most cable-like of the streaming services, so if you’re looking for a similar look and feel, this will likely work out well. It’s available on a free 7-day trial. You can learn more about DIRECTV NOW.

Sling TV—Sling TV offers the cheapest way to watch TNT for $20 per month with Sling Orange. It’s a pretty basic, budget-friendly streaming plan. A great way to fill the gap if you’re just looking for TNT or ESPN.

Playstation Vue—Vue is a cord cutting-favorite for many, offering a great DVR, the ability to stream on many devices at once, and plenty of channels. It offers a 5-day trial and starts at $39.99 per month.

Don’t miss the tournament. There are plenty of great options to watch. And don’t forget, if you’re just cutting the cord, use this cord cutting tool to piece together your custom setup!
