Ryder Cup channel is announced

• The Ryder Cup is live on Sky.

SKY has announced it will dedicate an entire channel to the 2014 Ryder Cup this Autumn, offering two weeks of non-stop golf coverage.

Sky Sports 4 will become Sky Sports Ryder Cup from September 18 until October 2 and is scheduled to show over 330 hours of golf across the 14 days.
The coverage is set to include 36 hours of live action from the main event at Gleneagles, which will be held between September 26-28.
David Rey, managing director of Sky Business, said the channel will “provide viewers with the complete Ryder Cup experience all in one place”.
“More than 900,000 people watched golf live in a pub or club in the last 12 months and there will be nowhere better than Sky Sports for pub goers to enjoy the passion, drama and excitement of this incredible event,” said Rey.
“We’ll offer round-the-clock build up, the opening and closing ceremonies and exclusive live coverage of all three days from Gleneagles.”
