How to Watch 2022 Masters Tournament Online Without Cable
The 2022 PGA Masters Tournament may just be the easiest event to watch online for cord-cutters nationwide. That’s because the tournament is streaming live on the tournament’s official website for free, plus via the ESPN Plus app and Paramount Plus app. In addition, ESPN and CBS networks will feature key coverage of each round, which you can access via multiple live TV streaming services.
Here’s a quick look at the two channels covering the tournament and where you can find them:
ESPN: DIRECTV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and ESPN Plus
CBS: DIRECTV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Paramount Plus, YouTube TV, and Free Over-the-Air TV
If you want unprecedented access to the 2022 Masters Tournament, then you need to get ESPN Plus. With extensive coverage of the events at Augusta National, ESPN Plus has exclusive commentary, multiple course streams, and everything you need to stay in the loop when it comes to keeping up with the Masters Tournament. At only $6.99 per month, this sports-based service is pretty much a steal for this tournament, and that doesn't even include all the original shows and other sports you'll be able to find on ESPN Plus after the tournament is over.
Hulu once started as a small on-demand streaming service featuring insightful and entertaining original productions. It has since grown into a full-fledged live TV streaming service featuring over 65 channels, including both CBS and ESPN, as well as thousands of on-demand titles and Hulu originals. Want to know more about what Hulu has to offer? Read our full Hulu + Live TV cord-cutting review.
FuboTV is all about sports and then some. The comprehensive live TV streaming service features a wide array of sports programming, both international and domestic, and a full buffet of news and entertainment channel lineups. With fuboTV, you’ll find both CBS and ESPN, where you can tune in to all four rounds of the 2022 Masters Tournament.
As a budget-friendly live TV streaming service, Sling TV offers the meat and bones of live programming without all the bells and whistles you may find with more full-service streaming brands. You can choose between two packages: Sling Orange or Sling Blue, or opt for both for a slightly higher monthly price. Sling TV might not carry CBS, but it does offer ESPN with the Sling Orange package. Find out more in our Sling TV pricing and plans overview.
What used to be CBS All Access has been rebranded to Paramount Plus with noted improvements over its predecessor. The service offers livestreaming and plenty of CBS sports (market dependent). If you’re looking for 2022 Masters coverage, you’ll be sure to find it here. In addition to Paramount Plus live streaming, you’ll enjoy the ability to surf through countless on-demand titles as well.
Google’s answer to the call for more live TV streaming services is YouTube TV. This is yet another content-packed live and on-demand service, which features popular channels like ABC, FOX, CNN, and of course, CBS and ESPN, where you can catch all the 2022 Masters Tournament coverage.
If you have a quality antenna in your possession, you’ve got access to free TV from major broadcasters like NBC, ABC, CBS, or FOX. Of course, location matters. But as long as your residence is within reach of a local broadcasting tower owned by one of the major network stations, you can use your antenna to tune into the 2022 Masters. You can also access other sporting events, local news, and entertainment — free of cost.
The easiest way to tune into the action during tournament week, and where you can watch the entire tournament online, is via the PGA Masters website. Here you’ll get a straight feed of the tournament’s featured events: Honorary Starters, On the Range, Holes 4, 5, and 6, Featured Groups, Amen Corner, Holes 15 and 16, and the green jacket ceremony. What you may be missing from this straight feed is all of the insight and commentary on the players, plays, and events you’d get from broadcasters over at ESPN and CBS.
