Sports, Streaming

Are you ready, golf fans?

The 105th PGA Championship is set to return to Oak Hill in May 2023.

Thousands of people have already bought tickets, which became available to the general public last June.

But, many cord-cutters are wondering how to watch PGA Championship online from the comfort of their living room. 

This article will show you how to watch PGA Championship on Firestick, Roku devices, Apple TV, Android TV, iPhone, and Android devices without cable.

We will discuss paid, free, and cheaper methods to catch the game. Make sure you stay till the end to learn everything. 

PGA Championship 2023 Preview

The year’s second men’s major golf event is just around the corner. Big names like Justin Thomas, Will Zalatoris, Mito Pereira, Cameron Young, and Rory McIlroy – are all set to put it all out. And hey, even the golf legend Tiger woods is expected to shoot a 66 at the event. 

In comparison with other major golf events, PGA is the least confusing for cord-cutters. There’s no need to switch between multiple streaming services to catch up on the live action.

You just need ESPN+ and Paramount+ for some games to watch PGA Championship 2023 on Firestick.

In Canada, the event traditionally airs on TSN, and in the UK & Europe on Sky Sports. 

Here’s a tentative PGA Championships broadcast schedule for the US.

How to Watch PGA Championship Live In 2023 on Firestick In the US

Like the previous year, Disney’s sports streaming service ESPN+ holds exclusive rights to air PGA Championship 2023.

While ESPN and CBS hold cable coverage, you don’t need anything other than ESPN+ to watch it live online on Firestick.

Now to get ESPN+, there are two options for US fans.

You can either go with the ESPN+ individual streaming service or go the Disney’s Hulu+ESPN route.

Let’s take a look at both options and their major differences. 

ESPN+ 

ESPN+ Logo

ESPN+ is the cheapest option to watch the entire PGA Coverage live and online without cable.

You can get its subscription for $9.99 per month or save 15% with its annual plan at $99.99. ESPN+ is a must-have subscription for any sports fan – not just golf fans.

For only $9.99 a month, you can stream Tennis, NBA, NFL, IPL, UFC Championship, and of course the PGA. Its app is readily available on the official Amazon app store.

You can simply get it from there and install it on Firestick in two minutes. 

ESPN + HULU

The Disney Bundle

As Disney owns both Hulu and ESPN, they have bundled both together for sports and entertainment fans.

While the standard Hulu plan costs $7.99 a month, you can get both Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu (with Ads) for just $12.99 a month. The same package with Hulu (no ads) costs $19.99 per month, still a great offering.

So, if you have kids at home, you can take advantage of this bundle and let them watch their favorite shows as you enjoy your favorite sports. 

How to Stream PGA Championship 2023 on Firestick in the UK & Europe

Traditionally, UK’s sports giant Sky Sports holds the rights to stream all of the PGA Championship.

Unfortunately, the network’s Sky Go app isn’t available on Amazon Firestick. It’s only available for Android and iOS users. Therefore, you have to watch golf live on Amazon’s Silk browser via Sky Sports web. 

In case you prefer a premium native app experience on your streaming device, there’s one other option.  You can stream all 11 Sky Sports channels, including Sky Sports Golf with a NOW TV Subscription. It costs £33.99 per month, which is sure more expensive than the other options we mentioned previously.

Simply download the NOW TV app from the app store and enjoy live golf including PGA Championship without a wired connection. 

How to Watch PGA Championship 2023 on Firestick in Canada

As previously mentioned TSN Canada holds the official license to air PGA in the northern half of North America.

Besides golf, it allows you to watch NFL, NHA, MLB, NBA, and all other major sports events throughout the year. It charges $19.99 CAD per month. However, you can also go the TSN Direct route which is a new live-streaming service for sports fans. It costs $24.99 CAD and offers full access to all 5 TSN feeds along with other bonus content for major world sports events. 

Unfortunately, the TSN and TSN Direct apps aren’t available on Amazon’s official app store. It means you have to sideload the APK from a third-party website if you want to get it on Firestick. 

How to Watch PGA Championship for Free (On Firestick)

Free trials are almost a thing of the past. No major streaming services in the US, UK, or Canada are offering free trials anymore.

You have to subscribe to a monthly plan to catch up on the golf action. But, we do have a free alternative, although that comes with some considerations. 

You can go for third-party unofficial apps on Firestick. These apps provide free sports streaming, including PGA Championship, without charging you a single penny.

However, there are some things to consider. First, these apps aren’t available on the official Amazon app store. Second, we cannot independently verify whether they hold the official license to cover the event. And third, downloading third-party apps can expose you to security risks. 

Watching unlicenced content on these apps can also get you in legal trouble. Therefore to avoid any hassle, you should sign up for a reliable VPN service like IPVanish

Secure Browsing with IPVanish

IPVanish creates a private browsing network on your streaming device.

It hides your IP address without affecting the streaming experience (thanks to a fast and large network or worldwide servers). Oh and not to forget, IPVanish comes with a 30 days money-back guarantee.

Therefore, you can test this service before committing full-time.

IPTV Services

Uh Oh!

Don’t forget IPTV services on Firestick to watch PGA Championship. These service providers offer a ton of sports content for a very minimal monthly charge.

There are hundreds of IPTV service providers to go with.

However, not all are equal or come with the same reliability and trust. Some of them go offline for months.

But, below are our favorite IPTV services for golf fans:

  • Apollo Group TV
  • SSTV IPTV
  • Gemini Streamz IPTV
  • Yeah! IPTV

Pro Tip: Always subscribe to monthly (and never yearly) IPTV plans.

Final Thoughts
