You want to watch the 148th Open? Here’s how you can do it.

Golf Channel and NBC Sports will be showcasing 410 hours of overall programming from the men's final major of the year at Royal Portrush.

In addition to the traditional coverage, the two networks, along with the R&A, will showcase live alternate feeds, including multiple marquee groups and featured holes (par-4 fifth, par-3 sixth and par-5 seventh). You can also watch replays of full-day coverage, Thursday-Sunday, in the Golf Channel app, NBC Sports apps, and on GolfChannel.com.  

Here’s the weekly TV schedule, with live stream links in parentheses. You can view all the action on the Golf Channel mobile, as well. Alternate coverage is noted in italics:
