Looking to watch a live stream of the Golf Channel? There are a number of different ways to do so, even if you don’t have cable.

While GolfChannel.com allows you to watch a live stream if you sign in to a TV provider, cord cutters who are looking to completely replace cable–or have already gotten rid of it–can watch the Golf Channel 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: Fubo TV is my Summer recommendation due to a sale that goes through the end of July, but Sling TV is the cheapest option for the long-term, while DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue also offer different pros and cons.

Here’s a rundown of what these live streaming services provide, and how to sign up to start watching the Golf Channel instantly:


Summer Sale: Fubo TV

While Fubo TV is typically $35 per month, it is currently offering a deal that allows users to sign up for $19.99 per month for two months. You can sign up for the deal anytime before July 31.

Not only does this make Fubo TV the cheapest current option for watching the Golf Channel, but the growing service also has an improving DVR and offers a mostly sports-based channel lineup. It’s biggest drawback is that it’s still missing ESPN, but it does offer NBA TV, NBC (live in select markets), NBC Sports, Fox Sports 1 and 2, Big Ten Network, Fox Soccer Plus, all 10 of the beIN Sports networks, Football Report TV and Eleven Sports in addition to the Golf Channel.

Here’s the rundown of Fubo TV’s bundle:

Cheapest Long-Term Option: Sling TV

Fubo TV’s current deal may make it the cheapest option for the next couple of months, but if you plan on using a streaming service beyond that, and if price is your No. 1 concern, Sling TV is the way to go. The “Sling Blue” package is $25 per month, while the Golf Channel is part of the “Sports Extra” add-on (Golf Channel isn’t part of the “Sports Extra” add-on with “Sling Orange.” Only “Sling Blue”) for another $10 per month.

At $35 per month, that’s the same as Fubo TV’s normal price, but Sling TV provides more customization and a more popular channel lineup.

Here’s a rundown of “Sling Blue” plus the “Sports Extra” add-on:

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