BSkyB is to devote its Sky Sports 4 channel to the golf Ryder Cup for the duration of the tournament. The Sky Sports Ryder Cup channel will air for two weeks, providing about 300 hours of coverage of the tournament.
The channel will offer 24-hour coverage of the competition, including the opening ceremony, build-up shows, documentaries, player interviews, plus highlights and analysis of the day’s matches and a preview of the following day’s between 19:00 and 22:00 from Friday to Sunday.
As well as providing additional coverage on Sky Sports News HQ and official highlights and other content on video-on-demand, for the first time, Sky Sports will screen the Exhibition Match live on YouTube. Sky Sports website and apps will offer build-up, a live blog, near-live video clips, player tracker, and a companion player via the iPad app, plus extended highlights and a round up programme.
