What channel is The CW? How to watch 2023 LIV Golf tournaments on DirecTV, Dish, Spectrum & more

By | February 24, 2023

LIV is now LIVE.

After streaming their events on YouTube in 2023, LIV Golf now has a TV deal that makes it easy for fans of the sophomore golf league to watch all through the season.

Amid speculation that LIV Golf would have to pay for airtime, the golf league struck a deal with The CW, a network that is primarily marketed towards teen entertainment. That makes for an interesting fit for both sides.

Featuring the same broadcast group from the 2022 season, The CW will air all 14 of the events this upcoming season live — save for five of the tour’s international events, which will air on tape delay. The CW App will air all events live, too.
