LIV Golf took a pretty significant step forward as far as securing a long-term spot in the sports landscape today, announcing it had reached a broadcast deal with CW. The network will broadcast all 14 of LIV's events in 2023. Previously only available on streaming, LIV locking down a deal with CW to bring its tournaments to standard broadcast television is a huge deal for its viewership numbers and long-term viability.
LIV Golf’s innovative production coverage, which LIV will continue to produce with its in-house team, will maintain its format and style from the 2022 Invitational season. LIV’s coverage includes a shotgun start, distinctive live leaderboard, enhanced drone coverage, statistics-driven graphics, and fast-paced coverage featuring nearly twice as many golf shots per hour than traditional golf coverage.
Thank goodness. What would we do without this monstrosity?
Just think-- this will be in 4K come February. LIV probably has some new tricks up its sleeve for the first-ever traditional broadcast, too. Let's get weird.
