That sounds sort of complicated.

Here, The Golf Channel represents nearly every professional tournament on the first 2 days and early play on the last two days before the broadcast goes over to broadcast television. If I just had an antenna, I'd just get those broadcast channels, ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox Network.

With cable or in my case with satellite tv, I have to buy a somewhat higher level package of channels to get The Golf Channel. Without it, there would be no golf on tv except on weekends other than major tournaments.

That simply wouldn't be enough for me.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...

The last time I checked, if you wanted to see everything - all the majors, Ryder Cup, ET, PGA Tour, you needed three different channel packages. Even then I wasn't sure of LET and Solheim Cup.

I guess some people in the UK complain of the cost of Sky Sports but at least it's easy to pay for one package and get everything - golf, Formula 1, Premier League, Tennis Grand Slams and whatnot. We almost had such a situation maybe ten years ago but then some officials decided the one company was dominating the market by getting all the big sports (throw in NHL and Finnish hockey league, big things over here) and decided one company shouldn't hog them all.

I wish they had just ruled out exclusive broadcasting rights. :D
