Spring has arrived, which means it’s time to watch The Masters. Here are our top choices to stream the tournament without cable. All of our top picks are mobile friendly on iOS and Android for maximum flexibility.
I have family in Aiken, South Carolina, which is a short drive to Augusta, Georgia, home of Augusta National Golf Course.
The Augusta National course is world famous for hosting The Masters Golf Tournament every spring. Years ago, I was lucky to be able to attend a practice round at The Masters, and have never seen a golf course in the type of pristine condition that the Augusta National groundskeepers are able to maintain.
Of course, most of us won’t be in the gallery parked at the iconic Amen Corner, and will instead be watching The Masters from the comfort of home. Doing so without cable is a little tricky because the TV rights for the first two rounds of The Masters are held by Disney (ESPN), whereas the final rounds on Saturday and Sunday are currently owned by Viacom (CBS).
The Masters will be broadcast on two channels
In order to recommend the best options for streaming The Masters we need to search our database for the live TV streaming providers that carry both ESPN and CBS. We have done the work for you and organized all your viewing options in the table below.
YouTube TV: Our top pick
YouTube TV is our top choice to watch the 2022 Masters because, as a live TV streaming service that carries both ESPN and CBS, cord cutting sports fans will have access to all four rounds of the tournament. The platform is currently offering a 2 week free trial period followed by three months of discounted rates.
YouTube TV offers a 4K add-on which is an attractive option for sports fans.
Hulu + live TV
Paramount+: For final rounds only
Paramount+, the streaming arm of CBS/Viacom, does not offer ESPN, so the platform isn’t a solution for April 7 and 8. However, CBS has the TV contract for the last two days of The Masters, which are arguably the most important, so if your goal is weekend action only, Paramount+ offers a nice solution at a fair price.
