Turner Sports embraces 1080p HDR for The Match in Las Vegas

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson aren’t the only ones placing big bets on Capital One’s The Match: Tiger vs. Phil, their one-on-one PPV golf event that takes place Friday at Las Vegas’s Shadow Creek.

The newly formed Warner Media Group — which comprises HBO, Turner, and Warner Bros. — is also all-in, working alongside Bleacher Report, CNN, and DirecTV to create an event that could change the nature of golf coverage given some of the innovations that are being deployed.

According to Turner Sports EVP/chief content officer Craig Barry, HBO, Bleacher Report, Turner, CNN, and DirecTV have all embraced the event, and each brings a different set of strengths and expertise that can be leveraged. “It’s been an incredible experience with everybody coming together and working together to create the best possible event,” he said. “That’s been a great addition to setting this up.”
