How to Watch the PGA Tour 2019 Without Cable?

Now that you know what to expect and when to expect it, here is how you go about watching the PGA Tour 2019 without cable.

Livestream PGA Tour 2019 on PGA.Com

PGA.com is a golf haven for those who want to cut the cord. You can watch the PGA Tour 2019 and any other major PGA event on PGA.com for free. So, browse on your laptop, sit on your couch with your tablet, or cue up the browser on your FireTV and watch live.

Watch PGA Tour 2019 with CBS Apps

Seeing as CBS is carrying the majority of PGA content, their apps have first dibs on the coverage. Therefore, there’s two ways to watch the PGA Tour with CBS:

  • CBS Sports
  • CBS All Access

The CBS Sports App was launched during the Olympics season and provides multiple live streams of CBS-owned content. You can also watch through CBS All Access, but that’s with an extra charge. However, CBS All Access will also give you exclusive access to the Star Trek and Twilight Zone reboots.

Watch PGA Tour 2019 Through Streaming Services

If you’re looking to cut the cord and want to watch the PGA Tour, consider joining a streaming service. To watch the PGA, you will need one that has TNT as an add-on.

For the most part, you can get CBS with any of the major streaming services. So, to get in on all the PGA festivities, choose between:

  • Hulu (7 or 30 Day Free Trial)
  • fubo TV (7 Day Free Trial)
  • Sling TV (7 Day Free Trial)
  • PlayStation Vue (5 Day Free Trial)

Right now, Hulu is the best bang for your buck. fubo TV is cheaper than the others but has less programming than Sling or PlayStation. So, if you are cutting the cord for minimal channels and to cover your golf needs, fubo TV might be the best bet for you in the long haul. PlayStation Vue is the most expensive and has the shortest trial, making it the least value for your dollar.
