This Peacock crap is pissing me off. I had no idea they were going to cut away this afternoon. I checked my Roku and there is no app. I'm not giving in to then trying to suck you into yet another service. (I know I'm being stubborn). I assume this won't be an issue over the weekend?

A classless move by NBC to try to force people to use their streaming service.

Unbelieveable.  I’m also disappointed that the USGA allowed it.

I mean, how could you have any idea? It's the first post in the topic. 😛

Folks, stop being the old man shouting at clouds. I downloaded Peacock last night to my AppleTV. Sign-up was easy, and free. It also works on my iPad, iPhone, and laptop.

You've had weeks to get do this, and that's on top of hours of coverage on Golf Channel and NBC itself.

I loaded it in 5 minutes when it changed over.

Also, why is Fleetwood dressed like this?

I didn't really pay attention. No app for the Roku and there is not a lot I will miss looking at the schedule. I'd rather gripe and protest.

They tried to ease it up so they could get the whole field in and it didn’t work. One group didn’t finish their round.

Streaming is the future of tv. No surprise NBC did this. Tomorrow Peacock has the am coverage. Espn did the same with the PGA. That wasn’t free. You should be happy NBC is offering it free. 

 

I wish they would sign up with Firestick. Makes it easier for me. Oh well.

I wonder if tomorrow will be Phil’s last round in a US Open?

He’ll prolly win a us senior open that will get him an exemption. But I do think Phil’s career as a full/time player is nearly over as I do think a tv offer will come soon.

What does Peacock cost? Curiosity as I see it's also not available to us Roku users.

I downloaded the app to my iPad. Didn’t see anything to sign in or sign up for. Watched featured groups for a little while this afternoon. If there’s a premium or paid version, I’m not seeing it.

Well, I was not able to watch the USO live yesterday but today I will.  Problem I have is with Peacock.  Do I put the USO on my large monitor and work on the smaller one?  Well, I am working so I guess work should be on the main screen....BUT it's the USO.  Work is on the smaller screen.

Watching the coverage on Peacock on my I-phone.....Yippee. Come on Golf Channel. This is ridiculous. Yes, it was easy to load and it's free etc...but really? It's the US Open.

I don't understand the bitching here:

  • It's available for your TV. Or computer.
  • It's for two hours today, with 9:30 to 7pm coverage on the television.

I'm not singling you out in particular, even though I'm replying to you.

I can't get it on Roku tv. I need my computer for work. I get it. I'm watching anyway but just seems sorta like NBC dictating that you have to use the app. I already have Netflix, amazon prime tv, etc...I'm just burned out on all the streaming services. I actually keep hoping the one of the previously mentioned services just start buying everyone out so there will be one place. It is what it is.

Yeah not a fan of putting a major championship on an app, let alone one that is having its issues. Not having an AirPlay option on the app is a huge negative from me for someone who uses AirPlay religiously with my Apple TV. But it’s only two hours so I can deal with it.

    • Personally I'm leaning towards these options, but am open to what everyone else wants.  We probably want to try this during the week if were booking SV tee times 30 days out. I am thinking we start golfing maybe on Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th.  Again, I am very open to discussion on all of this. 1. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 2. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 3. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290  4. Sentry World ($155) or Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box ($290) 5. Lawsonia ($120) or Erin Hills($320) - If you would be doing this on the way out it would be recommended to maybe fly out of Milwaukee and you may want to get a hotel nearby for a next morning flight.  So, costs: The 4 days of golf with Sentry world would be roughly $1025 for the golf. All 4 days all at SV would be $1160 5 days with Lawsonia $1145. 5 days with Erin hills or Whistling to something else you would want to do...have fun and good on you for having limitless income. A word of advice for Whistling and Erin, Whistling requires a caddy i believe, so your probably looking at ($750) and Erin has so many blind shots that you likely need one.   If someone wants to just golf the first three days, that is an option too.  @Slim_Pivot I apologize I was a bit low maybe on my initial calculations.  I was originally thinking of 3-4 days instead of 4-5 days. I am all for as much golf as possible though.      
    • Sorry for the silly-long delay in replying! The course closed in October 2016. I've never been back to the park. Our club (Braeside GC) survived after moving to Selsdon Golf Course and we're doing pretty well, except for the women's section which has dwindled badly. The other club (Beckenham GC) disappeared after moving/merging to somewhere else that wouldn't allow to retain their identity (I think they only had around 10 active members).
    • If you stay with Footjoy stay with the medium. It will likely be a bit long, but the elastic is so bad better to go with the proper sizing.
