Sky Deutschland retains The Open, PGA Championship in golf majors portfolio

German pay-television broadcaster Sky Deutschland has agreed multi-year extensions to its rights deals for men’s golf majors The Open and the PGA Championship.

The contracts with the two tournaments cover exclusive live broadcasting rights via satellite and cable, IPTV, web and mobile in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. They will remain in Sky’s major portfolio alongside The Masters, for which the broadcaster extended its contract in October.

Sky also holds rights in Germany to the Ryder Cup, the US PGA Tour, the European Tour and the four tournaments of the World Golf Championships.

The 2019 PGA Championship will be held in Farmingdale, New York from May 16-19 as the second major of the year. The 2019 Open is being hosted at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland from July 14-21.
