While Sky may have full live coverage of all four days, you’ll still be able to watch the live action from the Masters at the weekend on the BBC

How To Watch The Masters

The wait is finally over to for the 2017 US Masters -but how do you get to watch the action?

Sky Sports will be showing live coverage of all four days on its Sky Sports 4 HD channel from 7pm from Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th April, and from 6pm on Sunday 9th with additional live coverage of the final round on Sky Sports 1 from 7pm.

Featured group coverage will cover the early action and two of the morning marquee groups for the opening two rounds, available from 2.15pm on the Sky Sports red button, Sky Sports Xtra and Sky Sports iPad app.

Sky Sports may now hold the main live TV rights in the UK, but there is still scope to enjoy some or all of the Masters on TV if you’re not a Sky Sports contract customer.

Sky non-contract customers

SkySports.com will broadcast free coverage through Amen Corner, with a live feed from 3.45pm-7pm on each day during the first two rounds.
