PGA Championship Live Stream: How to Watch Online Without Cable

Looking to watch a live stream of the 2017 PGA Championship? There are a couple of different options, even if you don’t have a cable subscription.

On Thursday and Friday, coverage in the United States will be exclusively on TNT, starting at 1 p.m. ET on both days. On Saturday and Sunday, coverage will start on TNT at 11 a.m. ET and move to CBS at 2 p.m. ET.

For the CBS broadcasts, your best and easiest option will be CBS All Access, which allows viewers in most markets to watch a live stream of CBS for $5.99 per month and comes with a free trial.

If you’re looking to watch the TNT broadcasts and don’t have a cable log-in, you can watch via an over-the-top streaming service, which provides access to an entire package of channels for a monthly fee.

And with the steady rise of these services, cable-cutters have plenty of different options to choose from: Sling TV is the cheapest option, while DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue also offer different pros and cons. All of them also come with a free trial, so it’s easy to watch the PGA Championship at no cost.

Here’s a rundown of what these live streaming services provide, and how to sign up to start watching the year’s final major:



CBS All Access

For viewers looking to watch the weekend CBS coverage, CBS All Access allows you to watch a live stream of your local CBS channel, as well as providing access to on-demand content and and exclusive originals, for $5.99 per month.

Most Channels + Roku Deal: DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now’s cheapest bundle comes in at $35, but if you’re willing to pay a little extra, there are some big advantages.

First, you’re getting a channel package that is likely similar to what you would be getting with regular cable, as even its smallest package, “Live a Little,” provides access to more than 60 total channels. Second, they are offering a Roku Premiere Streaming Media Player ($69.95 value) if you prepay two months.

The biggest drawback is a lack of DVR, but that’s coming soon, so there’s a lot to like here.

Here’s a complete rundown of DirecTV Now’s “Live a Little” package:

Total Channels Included: 60-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list right here

Price: $35 per month

Extras: Watch on two different devices at the same time; DVR is in Beta stage; free Roku Premiere Streaming Media Player if you prepay two months

Most Streams At Once: PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue is somewhere in the middle on the price vs. quantity of channels spectrum, as its cheapest package with TNT (“Access” at $39.99 per month) is more expensive than Sling TV and DirecTV Now, but it doesn’t have as many channels as DirecTV Now’s cheapest bundle

Still, it does have some compelling advantages, as DVR is included, users can watch on five separate devices at once (which is more than any other service), and CBS is available in select markets.

Here’s a look at the “Access” bundle:

Total Channels Included: 45-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list here

Price: $39.99

Extras: Watch on five different devices at once; cloud DVR (restrictions with certain channels)

Free Trial: 5 days

How to Sign Up & Watch:

1. Click here to go to the PlayStation Vue website

2. Click on “Start Free Trial” and then create an account

3. Select the channel package you want. There are four different options. All of them include TNT

4. Enter your payment information. “Access” is $39.99 per month, while there are other options at $44.99, $54.99 and $74.99. If you cancel your subscription within five days of signing up, you will not be charged

5. Return to the PlayStation Vue website to start watching on your desktop. You can also watch via the PlayStation Vue app, which is available via a handful of different mobile or streaming devices. You can click here for the complete list of compatible devices
