Sky Sports is a group of television sports channels owned by the satellite pay-tv company Sky. Sky Sports is frequently referred to as the dominant sports brand in the United Kingdom and Ireland, mainly because it has played a major role in commercializing British sport since 1991. One of the most notable examples is their influence to create the Premier League in 1992. The first Sky Sports channel was launched on April 20, 1991.
In the past, Sky Sports used to number its channels to facilitate access to their users, but this approach was dropped in 2017, when the company decided to brand its channels with the sport they are dedicated to cover in most cases.
Sky Sports Golf was one of those channels, formerly known as Sky Sports 4. This channel is focused on covering all things surrounding the world of golf, both in United Kingdom and in the rest of the world.
This channel, like many others owned by Sky, has been temporarily rebranded to highlight the coverage of some of the top golf competitions covered by the channel. In the past, the channel has been rebranded as Sky Sports The Players (to cover The Players Championship), Sky Sports Ryder Cup (while covering the Ryder Cup), Sky Sports The Open (in order to cover the British golf open), and as Sky Sports U.S. Open (while covering the U.S. Golf Open).
Sky Sports Golf broadcasts its content in HD, as most of Sky Sports’ channels. Sky Sports Golf is one of eight premium channels available over the basic Sky package, along with Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports F1, and Sky Sports Action.
All of Sky Sports’ premium channels, such as Sky Sports Golf, may also be available on other pay-tv carriers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Check local listings for further details.
