I felt the same way.
I got the sport channels for this channel.
Now they will tell me value-added because give me more (of what I don't want) at the same price !!!

I think we got cheated here. Golf channel is much better and more focused. At first I thought its just rebranding but I have not seen other contents such as School of Golf, Golf Central, Golf Channel Academy and other program.s Furthermore they will  mix it up with other sports such as snooker and sailing which I don't care about. I think I will end my sports subscription and just rely on the internet or golf channel's website.

This is a rip-off man. I signed up a 2-yr contract last sep specially for ryder cup and dedicated golf channel. Now have to live with rojak channel. Doesn't sound right with unilateral change. Need to find out if customers have the right to pre-terminate contract.

I also feel damn TL but don't forget the majors are not telecast on Golf Channel. Same goes for most of the LPGA if I remember correctly which can be viewed on Super Sports 2 or 3 (can't remember the exact channel). What I typically do is browse through the various sports channels to see if there is any golf tournament I can watch.

Called Starhub today. They said it's super sports that changed content - not their fault as starhub is not the content provider. I suggested that if starhub markets Golf Channel and customer buys on that basis, then it constitute mis-selling when they cannot deliver product.

And what was their response? Asked if you read the fine print?  ROFL ROFL ROFL

You can try this site for sports.  Not sure how good it is as I haven't been there in ages.

You can also sideload the app Mobdro onto your phone and watch The Golf Channel.  You can even cast it to your TV using Chromecast.

Not sure if I'm abit late in replying this, but it's a channel owned by American, but produced in Msia if my sources are still right. What Starhub and ST are doing are buying ala carte content (aka Majors and more notable tournaments).

But truth be told, there's so much more great content on that channel! I wish it comes back Sad

If I'm not mistaken, there was some equestrian crap on 204 the other day. WTF?

Anyway... gotta get used to it.

Golf Channel is taken out of sports package. Same thing in Malaysia's Astro.

But for Astro, Golf Channel HD is available as a la carte selection, just add RM10 and you get it in HD.

I am still trying to find out if Starhub will do the same and let us choose Golf Channel HD as a la carte selection.
