AT&T is giving fans expanded coverage of the 2017 U.S. Open starting on June 15

DIRECTV customers will be shouting “4!” instead of “Fore!” when they tune into this year’s 117th U.S. Open Championship, at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. They’ll be watching 4 days of golf action, on a 4-screens-in-1 “mosaic” channel1 and select holes in 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD).

With FOX Sports and the USGA, AT&T is giving fans expanded coverage with its U.S. Open Experience on DIRECTV channels 701-705.  All the action starts June 15.

Coverage will also include a 4K/UHD broadcast of 3 holes on the Erin Hills course during all 4 rounds on DIRECTV 4K channel 106.

Each channel within the U.S. Open Mix Channel (find it on DIRECTV channel 701) is in HD3, fully produced with its own announcers. It includes:

  • The network simulcast (702) – FOX/FS1
  • Featured Group 1 (703)
  • Featured Group 2 (704)
  • Featured Holes (705) – 13, 14, 15.

Each channel in the mix can be tuned to full screen.

DIRECTV subscribers with 4K/Ultra-High-Definition equipment and qualifying DIRECTV service can also get 4K coverage of holes 13, 14 and 15. And it all comes in stunning quality roughly 4x the screen resolution of HDTV on DIRECTV 4K channel 106.4

Alongside the video, select the red button on your DIRECTV remote control to use interactive features like:

  • Top 5 Leaders. Get a convenient view of the top 5 current scores against par. And if you want more, an “EXPAND” option takes you directly to the full Leaderboard.
  • Leaderboard. Get information on all golfers in the field.  Press “SELECT” on a golfer to access their in-depth scorecard. Select the star icon to add a golfer to the “FAVORITES” list atop Leaderboard.

The Mix Channel and interactive menu are available during broadcast hours for all 4 days of the tournament.
