Comcast’s NBC Sports says it will simulcast more than 450 hours of PGA Tour events and related programming on Peacock in 2023.

The move means streamers who don’t have access to NBC or the Golf Channel via cable or satellite will still be able to watch key golf events and other programs through Peacock.

In a statement, a Comcast spokesperson confirmed the events will include the Players Championship scheduled for early March, every FedEx Cup event and other matches.

Comcast did not say whether streamers will need to subscribe to the premium version of Peacock, which costs $5 a month, in order to get live access to PGA Tour events.

According to NBC Sports, the following PGA Tour events will stream live on Peacock in 2023:

  • January 5-8: Sentry Tournament of Champions (also on NBC, Golf Channel)

Some of the events will also include pre-match coverage on the Golf Channel and Peacock. All events will stream on the NBC Sports app as well.

The decision to put more golf-related programming on Peacock increases Comcast’s sports offerings on the streaming service, part of a bigger strategy to generate more interest in the direct-to-consumer product over the long term. This year, Comcast began offering live telecasts of NBC’s Sunday Night Football through Peacock. Some events from the last two Olympic Games have also streamed live on Peacock.
