2020 Masters TV schedule: How to watch the Masters on TV

It may be November, but there’s still one men’s major championship left to play, and it’s arguably the most anticipated of all: the 2020 Masters at Augusta National. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the action on TV.

Where to watch the Masters on TV

This unique fall edition of the Masters begins with the first round on Thursday, Nov. 12 and runs through Sunday, Nov. 15. Parts of all four rounds will air on TV with coverage split between ESPN and CBS. ESPN will carry the coverage for the opening two rounds, then CBS will air the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday.

With an earlier sunset and less total daylight compared to the traditional Masters dates in April, tee times for all four rounds have been pushed earlier to ensure all rounds are completed each day. Sunday’s final round will be the earliest of all, with the aim to crown a winner by 3 p.m. ET so that the tournament does not conflict with NFL games later in the day. CBS’ final round coverage will begin at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday.


For CBS, this year’s tournament will mark the 65th Masters aired on the TV network. You can learn more about CBS’ storied history at the Masters here.

There will also be extensive coverage available online via ESPN+, Masters.com and the Masters app, including featured group coverage every day. You can sign up for an ESPN+ account here to stream the action.
