How to Watch US Open Golf Live Stream Without Cable 2017

As has been the case the last couple of years, Fox and Fox Sports 1 will have exclusive live coverage of the 2017 US Open. Fortunately, that makes it easy for you to watch a live stream of all the action, even if you don’t have a cable subscription or a television.

Fox and FX1 will split the coverage on Thursday and Friday, while Fox will have coverage all day on Saturday and Sunday. You can find the schedule and times here.

If you don’t have a cable subscription, you can still watch all the action via over-the-top streaming services, which allow you to stream a handful of channels for a monthly fee: Sling TV is my personal recommendation due to cost, though there are several major cities where DirecTV Now will be your best choice, while other services such as Fubo TV and PlayStation Vue offer different pros and cons.

Before we compare these services, it’s important to note that local networks such as Fox are only available live in select markets, and it’s going to vary by service, so the first thing to do is to figure out if Fox is available in your area. Here’s a rundown for the 20 biggest markets (note that where it doesn’t say “live,” Fox will be available on-demand in most places):

Market Sling TV DirecTV Now Fubo TV PlayStation Vue
New York Live Live Live Live
Los Angeles Live Live Live Live
Chicago Live Live Live Live
Philadelphia Live Live Live Live
Dallas/Fort Worth Live Live Live Live
San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose Live Live Live Live
Washington DC Live Live Live Live
Houston Live Live Live Live

Detroit Live Live Live Live
Seattle/Tacoma Live
Minneapolis/St. Paul Live Live Live Live
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Live

Fox Sports 1, meanwhile, will be available in all markets. And with that in mind, here’s a rundown of what these streaming services provide, and how to sign up:

Cheapest Option: Sling TV

If price is your No. 1 concern with a streaming service, there’s no doubt that Sling TV is the way to go. Fox and Fox Sports 1 are both a part of the company’s “Sling Blue” bundle, which remains the lowest price point of all over-the-top streaming services at $25 per month.

DirecTV Now’s cheapest bundle, “Live a Little,” comes in a bit more expensive ($35 per month) than Sling TV, but it includes more channels, and after adding 14 Fox affiliate stations in April, it is now up to 31 total live markets, which is the most of all streaming services.

US Open Channels Included: Fox (live in select markets) and Fox Sports 1
Total Channels Included: 60-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list right here

A New Option: Fubo TV

If you’re looking to test out a new product and you’re not concerned about the lack of ESPN, Fubo TV is an interesting option. The service includes both Fox and Fox Sports 1, and it’s also worth noting that Fubo is a fledgling product that’s still growing its arsenal of channels, so it’s possible the service will add ESPN and others before the end of the year.
Though it’s more expensive than Sling’s base packages, Fubo TV is only $35 per month, has a DVR feature at no extra cost and offers a mostly sports-based channel lineup. It includes NBA TV, Golf Channel, Big Ten Network, Fox Soccer Plus and all 10 of the beIN Sports networks. The latter two are especially big if you’re looking for an international soccer package.

Here’s the rundown of Fubo TV’s bundle:

US Open Channels Included: Fox (live in select markets) and Fox Sports 1
Total Channels Included: 58. You can find the complete channel list here
Price: $34.99 per month
Extras: Watch on two different devices at once; three DVR spots for free
Free Trial: 7 days

How to Sign Up & Watch:

1. Click here to sign up and launch your free trial. You’ll need to enter your credit card information when signing up, but if you cancel your subscription before the trial ends, you won’t be charged.
2. If you’re on a computer, you can start watching TV right away in your Internet browser without having to download a desktop app. If you’re on a mobile device, download the Fubo app.

Most Streams At Once: PlayStation Vue


If you’re in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco or Miami, you may want to ignore PlayStation Vue, as the cheapest bundle for those markets is “Access,” which costs $40 per month. Those in other markets, however, can sign up for “Access Slim,” which is a more reasonable $30 per month.
PlayStation Vue does have it’s advantages, however, as users can watch on five separate devices at once, which is more than any other service.

Here’s a look at the “Access Slim” bundle:

US Open Channels Included: Fox (live in select markets) and Fox Sports 1
Total Channels Included: 40-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list here

Extras: Watch on five different devices at once; cloud DVR (restrictions with certain channels)
Free Trial: 5 days

How to Sign Up & Watch:


1. Click here to go to the PlayStation Vue website
2. Click on “Start Free Trial” and then create an account
3. Select the channel package you want. There are four different options, all of which include Fox and Fox Sports 1
4. Enter your payment information. The “Access” package is the cheapest of the four packages at $29.99 per month, but it is $39.99 per month in select markets. If you cancel your subscription within five days of signing up, you will not be charged
