The controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series has shaken up the world of professional golf in 2022. With record purses and stars like Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia, LIV Golf events have drawn lots of eyeballs – and plenty of criticism too.
If you want to tune into the action at LIV tournaments like the upcoming LIV Golf Invitational Boston, this guide will show you exactly how to live stream for free on Firestick, Android or any device you prefer.
What is LIV Golf? A Quick History
Before we get to the streaming options, let‘s quickly recap LIV Golf‘s formation and the key facts about this new league:
Backed by Saudi Arabia‘s Public Investment Fund: The league is bankrolled by the Saudis to the tune of $2 billion, part of the country‘s push to expand influence through sports washing.
Big signing bonuses: Top players like Mickelson and Johnson were paid 9-figure signing bonuses just to participate.
Controversies galore: From accusations of sportswashing to getting banned from the PGA Tour, LIV has never been far from criticism.
Innovative formats: LIV tournaments feature shotgun starts, no cuts, and team competitions alongside individual play. Events last just 3 rounds.
Massive purses: LIV Golf events have purses of $20+ million – much larger than typical PGA Tour prize money.
Notable defectors: Major winners like Johnson, Koepka, DeChambeau and Mickelson have all made the jump amidst ongoing tension.
After hosting its first few events in London, Portland and New Jersey, LIV Golf now heads to Boston for its 4th tournament and the first within the United States.
LIV Golf Invitational Boston: Event Details
The LIV Golf Invitational Boston takes place on September 2-4, 2022 at The International golf club in Bolton, MA.
Here are the key details on the field, schedule and more:
48 player field: 12 established 4-man teams will compete, including stars like Johnson, Koepka, Mickelson, etc.
Shotgun start: Play begins at 1:15 PM ET on all 3 days with groups starting simultaneously at different holes.
No cut: All 48 players will play the full 54 holes to keep things interesting.
Yardage: The International course plays as a Par 71 at 7,368 yards. The wide fairways suit big hitters.
Prize Money: The total purse is a whopping $20 million, with $4 million for 1st place!
With LIV Golf events featuring new formats, star power and huge money, the on-course action promises to be top-notch. Now let‘s get to streaming!

The Firestick and Fire TV devices provide easy access to free live streams for LIV events. Here are the best options to watch right from your TV:
LIV Golf will live stream the Invitational Boston on their YouTube channel in up to 4K quality.
Simply open the YouTube app on your Firestick/Fire TV, search for the “LIV Golf” channel and tune into their live coverage. YouTube is always a top option for free streams.

The pre-installed Silk Browser or a third-party like Firefox can be used to access free streams on the LIV Golf website and other sources.
I recommend Firefox – go to
livgolf.com/boston and look for their live video feed. Quality is often excellent through a web browser.
3. LIV Golf App
If available in your region, the LIV Golf app for Firestick/Fire TV will likely have live stream access too.

Which Devices Are Best for Streaming LIV Golf?
When it comes to streaming devices, you‘ve got choices like Firestick, Android TV boxes, phones, tablets, computers and more. Here are a few key considerations:
Firestick/Fire TV – Excellent compatibility with various apps and web browsers. Easy to setup and use, plus control with the remote.
Android TV Box – Similarly versatile for installing different apps. Powerful hardware gives smooth streaming. Some remote included.
Android Phone/Tablet – Convenient streaming on the go. Smaller screens limit viewing experience though.
Computer – Large screen and compatible with most streaming sources, but less convenient than TV-connected devices.
Smart TV Platforms – Apps like YouTube built right into newer TVs. Limited options compared to dedicated devices though.
For the optimal viewing experience on your big screen TV, I recommend the Firestick 4K or Fire TV Cube. They provide access to the widest variety of streaming apps and browsers, while also offering excellent performance. Controlling via remote is very convenient too.
For on-the-go streaming, any relatively modern Android phone or tablet will enable streaming LIV Golf using the apps mentioned above. Picture quality is limited by the smaller screens though.
Alternative Streaming Options
Don‘t have a spare device to install apps on your TV? Here are a couple alternative methods you can use to live stream LIV Golf on other types of devices:
Web Browser on Computer – Navigate to
livgolf.com/bostonon your Windows PC, Mac or Linux computer. Look for their live video feed.
Web Browser on Smart TV – Newer smart TVs have web browsing capability. Go to the LIV site to find streams. Quality depends on your TV model though.
Screen Mirroring – Mirror your Android screen or computer display to your TV. Then access LIV Golf streams on the original device.
HDMI Cable – Physically connect your laptop to your TV via HDMI and navigate to the LIV site to view streams in up to 1080p.
With a bit of creativity, you can get LIV Golf up on your big screen using the devices you already own. The built-in streaming options on smart TVs are quite limited unfortunately.
