LIV Golf Signs TV Deal with The CW Network
LIV Golf finally has their TV deal.
After some speculation earlier in the week, LIV announced that they have signed a multi-year broadcast TV and streaming deal with The CW Network.
The deal will begin with the 2023 LIV season.
“This is a momentous day for LIV Golf as this partnership is about more than just media rights. The CW will provide accessibility for our fans and maximum exposure for our athletes and partners as their reach includes more than 120 million households across the United States,” said LIV CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman.
For their part, The CW will air all 14 events, including streaming of the events live on the CW app.
“Our new partnership between The CW and LIV Golf will deliver a whole new audience and add to the growing worldwide excitement for the league. With CW’s broadcasts and streams, more fans across the country and around the globe can partake in the LIV Golf energy and view its innovative competition that has reimagined the sport for players, fans and the game of golf. For The CW, our partnership with LIV Golf marks a significant milestone in our goal to re-engineer the network with quality, diversified programming for our viewers, advertisers and CW affiliates. This also marks the first time in The CW’s 17-year history that the network is the exclusive broadcast home for live mainstream sports,” said CW Network President Dennis Miller.
Weekend tournaments will air live on Saturdays and Sundays on The CW and The CW App and on Fridays on The CW App.
The LIV on-air announce team includes Arlo White leading play-by-play alongside analysts David Feherty and Jerry Foltz in the booth, and Dom Boulet, Su-Ann Heng, and Troy Mullins providing coverage on the course and in feature segments.
