My brother recently bought a Hisense Smart TV powered by Roku OS. Being a golfer, he asked me how to watch Golf Channel on his newly purchased Roku TV. In 2011, NBC Sports acquired the telecasting rights for the Golf Channel. So, I suggested my brother install the NBC Sports app on Roku to watch the live Golf events. With NBC Sports on Roku, you can stream big events like the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, LPGA, PGA Tour Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, USGA, etc.
