CBS Time Warner Cable customers face PGA Championship blackout

Posted at 10:28 AM by Scooby Axson | Categories: 2013 PGA Championship, CBS, Time Warner Cable

CBS is scheduled to broadcast the final two rounds of the PGA Championship this weekend, but for Time Warner customers with CBS in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas, they might have to find another alternative to watch the tournament.

The network is in a dispute with Time Warner, which pulled CBS off the air in numerous markets on Aug. 2 over fees that the network charges Time Warner. The blackout will affect more than 3 million viewers.

"Well, absolutely, our goal is to make sure that the PGA Championship is as visible and as watchable to as many people as possible,” Pete Bevacqua, the PGA chief executive, said during a Wednesday news conference at Oak Hill Country Club. “So we will continue to keep an eye on it as weekend coverage draws closer.”

PGA.com will have limited streaming of the tournament for all four days.
