With the time change, watching the British Open will be somehow difficult for the United States viewers. If you can cope with the early morning waking up, there are two channels for you in the US that will air the Open and that is NBC and Golf Channel. The first and second rounds will be offered solely by Golf Channel. It will extensively cover the event unlike with the masters. On the first two days of the tournament, you will be able to incredibly watch 14 hours of the British Open coverage on a cable channel. The third and the last rounds will then be aired by NBC. This year’s British Open will be televised by Sky Sports in its entirety.
You can opt to watch the British Open live stream on your tablets, streaming devices and mobile phones by use of the NBC Sports app or the Golf Channel website. In order to access the NBC or the Golf Channel, you need to log in with your cable service provider credentials. The Open Champions app also offers coverage and featured pairings. Here is a list of channel numbers for the Golf channel:
