TVNZ bringing live golf to Freeview this Friday

TVNZ bringing live PGA, LPGA and European Tour golf to Freeview this Friday.

27 AUGUST 2015

TVNZ is bringing live coverage of the first two rounds of the PGA, LPGA and European Tours to Freeview from this Friday.

Free-to-air live coverage of nine tournaments will run on TVNZ’s Freeview pop-up channel through until the end of October. Highlights packages will also be screened on TV One and TVNZ OnDemand.

TVNZ Director of Content Jeff Latch says this live golf coverage is an exciting extension to an earlier golf deal TVNZ had with Lightbox Sport.

“TVNZ and Lightbox Sport brought the PGA and LPGA back to free-to-air television earlier this year with highlights coverage of a number of tournaments, we’re very pleased to be able to extend this to live coverage.”

TVNZ has the rights to the first two rounds of the PGA, LPGA and European Tours with the remainder of each tournament available through Lightbox Sport.

Lightbox Sport CEO Tim Martin says delivering a free-to-air component of the PGA Tour, LPGA and European Tours was a promise made at the time of announcing their exclusive rights to the tours.

“Kiwi’s love their sport and golf is no exception. We think people will really appreciate being able to get a free-to-air taster of what’s available on PGA TOUR LIVE.”

The Freeview pop-up channel 15 is available on all Freeview platforms; Freeview, Freeviewplus and Freeview Satellite.
