Has anyone seen/heard whether or not DTV will have the Masters Mix and interactive feature channel(s) this year? I don't see anything on the website and there's no press release as there was in prior years.

Thanks.

Yes they will. You didn't look very hard, took me 5 seconds to find:

Yes, there will be a Masters mix this year. I have seen DirecTV running the ads for it for the last several days.

The Masters Mix will be on Channels 701 - 705 starting April 8.

Cola Kid, there's no mention of the Master's on the page you linked to - which I have looked at many times before. Why is last year's PGA championship the featured event?

This makes no sense.

But I'll take your and KMG's word for it that it will be shown on the usual 700 channels.

I guess they haven't updated it yet, its still a few weeks away. All of the regular features for the Masters were mentioned in the flier with my last bill though.

As KMG said, they have been running promo ads about it for a few days. In fact, I just saw it again earlier this morning on Sports Center.

They have it on the First Page of the Email Notice but when you click on it they haven't updated the Page from last year and why they are waiting so long is anyone's guess.

My Guess is that Marketing has dropped the ball on this announcement!!!

Probably coming soon.

ESPN has had television ads for it for the last week or so...

DirecTV has been pimping it hard on the Mega March Madness channels. I assume it is where local insert ad would be on the CBS feed, which of course do not run on thos channels.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Ch. 704 -- Amen Corner
Ch. 705 -- Holes 15 & 16

The red button can be used to view the leaderboard, individual scorecards and Masters trivia.

Lastly, the 101 will have a 2010 Masters preview show beginning April 5 at 8pm ET, 7pm CT.

I love The Masters but I hate how they are in control of everything. The featured group should be shown for all 18, not just the back 9. I love watching all the other majors and being able to follow the featured group from opening tee shot to final putt out.

And here's to hoping for a Tiger/Phil pairing!

Are you kidinnngg meee!?! ;) He is only one of the most awesome basketball commentators out there and we got 10 extra minutes last night. THough his style might not lend itself to golf, I'll give you that.

Maybe not to golf itself, but to Tiger's other "exploits".....WOWWWWW!!!!

Back to topic - I can't wait to see wall-to-wall coverage of Amen Corner.
