[Image: Gt4MfH8.jpg]MUMBAI: Discovery and PGA Tour will launch the international golf streaming service GolfTV in India in 2022 with the commencement of their commercial rights arrangement. The video streaming service will launch globally outside the US on 1 January 2019.

GolfTV will aim to offer fans a one-stop destination to access the widest range of golf content. With a growing portfolio of content, it will feature many of the sport’s exciting moments, superstar players and tournaments on every screen and device.

Serving golf fans with an enhanced experience to both entertain and inform, GolfTV will present more than 2,000 hours of live action each year as well as extensive premium content on-demand. Live coverage will include the six Tours operating under the PGA TOUR umbrella and nearly 150 tournaments annually – including The Players Championship, the FedExCup Playoffs and the Presidents Cup.

Discovery Golf president, GM Alex Kaplan said, “Our long-term goal is to create a must-have experience that truly enhances the way global fans watch, play and engage with the game every day. Unveiling the new GolfTV brand is an exciting next step in our journey.

“Building on Discovery’s heritage of real-life storytelling and direct-to-consumer platform experience, we’ve already established a world-class GolfTV team. With work well underway, our carefully considered plans will allow us to continually enhance GolfTV as we roll-out and further develop the product.”

The launch of the GOLFTV brand follows the pioneering strategic alliance between Discovery and the PGA Tour, announced in June. In addition to the GolfTV service, the 12-year alliance will manage the PGA Tour’s international multi-platform rights including linear TV rights.

Discovery is already working to execute on a robust distribution and broadcast partner strategy for the portfolio, optimizing reach across free-to-air, pay-TV and digital, and will explore partnering with existing PGA Tour and golf broadcasters to continue to grow the game. Live PGA TOUR coverage will become available via GolfTV in line with the market-by-market rights activation date (see below).

GolfTV Video Streaming Service: GolfTV will supersede PGA Tour Live across global markets (outside the United States). Users in all markets can subscribe to a wide range of golf content and programming on GolfTV, with the addition of live PGA Tour coverage by-market as the rights are activated. In 2019, live coverage will be included on GolfTV in Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia and Spain.
