If you've been hedging on purchasing a PGA Tour Live subscription, then your wait may actually prove to be worth it. That's because you can now get PGA Tour Live with ESPN's forthcoming, over-the-top subscription service called ESPN+.
ESPN+ is $4.99 (OK, $5) per month, and subscribers will get access to a variety of live sports programming otherwise unavailable, including more Grand Slam tennis matches, rugby and cricket matches from around the world, collegiate sports like wrestling and more. There will be more college basketball and college football than a fan can shake a stick at, catching more programs live. The entire Major League Soccer out-of-market package will be available. In addition to a daily NHL and MLB game, MLB.tv is available as an add-on.
But, for the golf fan, the best thing is being able to get PGA Tour Live, which shows early-round action and special coverage from 31 PGA Tour events. The coverage follows featured groups in an early-round window, and there are also featured holes covered specifically by PGA Tour Live. The network broadcasts are also available, as well occasional special weekend coverage of featured holes and/or groups.
PGA Tour Live costs $5.99 per month, which is a great deal. However, for $4.99 per month, you'll get that and much more with ESPN+. Kinda seems like a no-brainer.
ESPN+ debuts April 12.
