PGA Tour[edit]

In June 2018 Discovery and the PGA Tour agreed a $2 billion, 12-year deal for the rights to all PGA Tour global television and multi platform rights outside of the United States. It will include all PGA Tour properties including The Players Championship, the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the Presidents Cup, and the PGA Champions Tour. The rights will come into force when existing deals expire, which means live events will commence in Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia and Spain in 2019. Poland and South Korea will commence in 2020, and Belgium, China, Germany and South Africa in 2021. United Kingdom, Denmark, Finland, India, Norway and Sweden rights expire in 2022, and France expire in 2024.[1][2]
