How to Stream Golf Channel on Roku or Fire TV Stick
You can stream Golf Channel live on Roku, Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast.
fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV are live TV streaming services that carry Golf Channel.
Watch Golf Channel Live Without Cable
I’m going to show you how to stream Golf Channel live without any kind of cable or satellite TV subscription.
Watching Golf Channel on a Roku, Fire TV or Apple TV is super easy thanks to the current wave of cord cutting and streaming options.
If you’ve never used a live streaming service before, it’s really simple.
Instead of a cable cord delivering your favorite channels to your TV, companies like Sling TV, fuboTV and others live stream popular networks like Golf Channel online. All of your favorite networks — whether its ESPN or HGTV — are no longer exclusive to Dish Network, Comcast, Spectrum and DIRECTV.
Right now, the cheapest way to watch Golf Channel is through Sling TV. The Sling Blue package with the Sports Extra bundle has 60 networks, including Golf Channel for $46 per month. (New customers can tap into a free 3-day trial, and cancel anytime.)
But Sling TV isn’t your only option. Choosing the best live streaming service depends your ideal channel lineup, features and price. So forget about paying through the nose just to watch the Farmers Insurance Open, or the Honda Classic.
Don’t shell out major bucks to just to watch the Players Championship every year.
It’s time to tee up and kiss your hefty cable bill goodbye.
