Home Please sir can I have more?

DIRECTV is offering golf fans more options to view the play at Muirfield this week. Many times golf fans can’t get enough action but they will be hard pressed to find anywhere else that can match what the satellite provider has in store.

The digital TV entertainment provider will team up with ESPN to deliver four-cell Mix Channel coverage of all the action at Scotland's legendary Muirfield course beginning July 18 through July 24.  Mix Channel (Ch. 701) will feature the main broadcast from ESPN (Ch. 702), plus dedicated channels for Holes 1 & 18 (703) and Holes 7, 8 & 9 (704), and an international feed with British commentators (705), which includes the poetics of Hall of Famer, Peter Alliss. The channels can be watched at the same time or selected and tuned in to full screen. The service is all in HD and free of charge to customers. Viewers can also use interactive features for real time updates by pressing the red button on their remote while watching any of the Open Championship channels to see:  

Leaderboard – for information on all golfers in the field

Scorecard - hole–by-hole stats for each player, including driving distance, fairways hit

Top Five Leaders – a quick view of the real-time scores of the top five players

Coverage begins each day in the wee hours of the morning, 4 EDT or 1 PDT! Fans who tune into DIRECTV's Open Championship Experience will be overwhelmed with coverage on the battle for the third Major Championship of the year and who will walk away with the Claret Jug and be declared the Champion Golfer of the Year by Peter Dawson of the R&A
