NBC Sports and Sky Sports, both now owned by Comcast, are expected to announce a partnership to offer the “most extensive” coverage of golf’s Players Championship.
The two broadcasters plan to swap analysts and some other content as part of their coverage of the event in Florida.
“This is now the most comprehensive collaboration between NBC Sports and Sky Sports to date. There will be more going forward,” Mike McCarley, president of golf for NBC Sports Group, told Reuters.
The pair first began discussing how to work more closely together last September, said the report. They decided to focus on both golf and coverage of the English Premier League, “two sports in which we had a shared significant investment,” McCarley said.
“It’s not the easiest process to get through, but everyone comes to the table with the right spirit of collaboration,” he said.
The broadcasters are expected to make an official announcement later on Monday.
