2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot TV, live stream schedule

Leave a comment

The 120th U.S. Open airs live on NBC, GOLF Channel and Peacock with nearly 45 hours of live tournament coverage from Winged Foot Golf Club starting Thursday.

NBC Sports airs the U.S. Open for the first time since its 20-year run from 1995-2014. The USGA announced in June that the media rights for its championships transferred to NBC Universal through 2026, renewing a partnership that began in 1954 with the first U.S. Open to air on TV.

The field includes 48 of the top 50 male golfers in the world, led by No. 1 Dustin Johnson and including 15-time major champion Tiger Woods.

Primary live coverage will be supplemented by alternate feeds of featured groups, featured holes, aU.S. Open 360 and a U.S. Open pop-up channel on Peacock. More details are here.

There are Olympic connections: the 2020 and 2021 U.S. Opens are Olympic qualifying tournaments, where world ranking points go into determining the 60-player field for the Tokyo Games. The field will be taken from the Official World Golf Ranking immediately after the 2021 U.S. Open.

Longtime Olympic fans will recognize the musical refrain synonymous with NBC’s U.S. Open broadcasts. Yanni‘s “In Celebration of Man” was first used with the intro to the 1992 Barcelona Games preview show.

2020 Tour de France TV, live stream schedule

1 Comment

NBC Sports airs daily, start-to-finish coverage of the 107th Tour de France, running two months later than usual due to a coronavirus pandemic-forced postponement.

On TV, NBC, NBCSN and CNBC combine to broadcast all 21 stages of the three-week Grand Tour, which starts in Nice and finishes on Paris’ Champs-Élysées.

NBC Sports Gold and Peacock Premium live stream daily coverage, too, including nearly 20 bonus hours and commercial-free coverage for Gold “Cycling Pass” subscribers. Gold subscribers can also live stream La Course, a one-day women’s race, on Aug. 29 at 4 a.m. ET.

More information on exclusive digital offerings is here.

Colombian Egan Bernal of Team Ineos defends his title, a year after becoming the first South American winner and the youngest, at 22, in more than 100 years.

Bernal will not be joined by Ineos teammates and past Tour champions Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas, British veterans left off the eight-man roster.

Instead, the other top contenders include would-be first-time Tour winners Primoz Roglic of Slovenia and Nairo Quintana of Colombia. A number of riders are in contention for the podium with last year’s second- and third-place finishers — Thomas and Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk — absent this year.

Slovakian Peter Sagan looks to extend his record of seven Tour de France sprinter titles and earn at least one stage victory for a fifth straight year.

Longtime Tour broadcast host Phil Liggett returns, as does analyst Bob Roll. They will call the race remotely from Sky Sports in Great Britain and NBC Sports in Stamford, Conn., respectively. Paul Burmeister hosts daily pre- and post-race studio coverage from Stamford with past Grand Tour riders Christian Vande Velde and Chris Horner.

Former professional cyclist Adam Blythe serves as a reporter on-site in France.

“Dreams Live On: Countdown to Tokyo” and “Lighting the Flame: Iconic Ceremony Moments” highlight two weeks of Olympic programming on NBCSN and Olympic Channel starting Friday.

More than 100 hours of historic Olympic moments and specials on Tokyo Olympic hopefuls mark one year out from the Games. Full TV schedules are here for the first week and the second week.

“Dreams Live On: Countdown to Tokyo” premieres Friday at 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN. The one-hour special features U.S. stars training amid the coronavirus pandemic that postponed the Olympics to 2021. Gymnast Simone Biles and sprinter Allyson Felix are among the featured athletes.

“Lighting the Flame: Iconic Ceremony Moments” first airs Friday at 10 p.m. on NBCSN. The half-hour program chronicles memorable moments from Opening Ceremonies. The Tokyo Olympic Opening Ceremony, originally set for Friday, will be July 23, 2021.

Another new program, “What Moves Me,” premieres Sunday at 7 p.m. on NBCSN. The 30-minute show highlights Olympic athletes, including diving gold medalist David Boudia, overcoming obstacles en route to achieving goals.

That’s followed by “Journey to Tokyo,” a miniseries following U.S. athletes preparing for Tokyo, including Biles, Felix, sprinter Noah Lyles and skateboarder Nyjah Huston.
