The 2022 Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews begins this week, and while it might require some early wake-ups, extensive coverage will be available on TV for fans watching from home. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Open Championship on TV.

Where to watch the Open on TV

The primary place to watch this year’s 150th Open at St. Andrews is via NBC. NBC took over the rights to broadcast the Open in the U.S. back in 2016, signing a 12-year deal with the R&A a year prior. That came shortly after NBC lost U.S. Open TV rights to Fox, before regaining the rights in 2021 to become the sole TV broadcast partner of both Opens.

TV coverage for this year’s Open will be similar to the schedule NBC employed last month at Brookline. USA will carry the first two rounds of the tournament on Thursday and Friday, as well as early coverage on the weekend. Then NBC takes the helm for lengthy broadcasts of the third and final rounds, including a seven-hour telecast on Sunday.

There will also be extensive streaming coverage available online via Peacock, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app, including featured group and featured hole coverage each day of the tournament and exclusive early coverage of the first two rounds.
