Sky Sports 4 is to be renamed Sky Sports Ryder Cup as it gears up to show 240 hours of coverage of the flagship golfing event.
From Monday September 26th, four days before the Ryder Cup tees off, the channel will be offering ten days of bespoke programming on the competition.
This will range from live coverage of the action at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota, USA to highlights shows, archive material, breakfast shows and Ryder Cup specials.
Jason Wessely, Head of Golf at Sky Sports, commented: "The Ryder Cup stands alongside the biggest sporting events in the world and it is only right that we have a channel on Sky Sports for our viewers to soak in the excitement it creates.
"By offering fans ten days of Ryder Cup programming we hope to capture all of the history, passion and drama from what should be a boisterous American crowd and a fantastic competition."
Sky Sports Ryder Cup will appear on channel 404, while live coverage will be simulcast on Sky Sports 1 from Friday to Sunday.
Golf fans can also keep up with the action by purchasing a NOW TV sports week pass for £10.99 and follow the proceedings on other Sky Sports platforms.
Meanwhile, the Ryder Cup opening ceremony and a selection of support programming will be transmitted on Sky Sports Mix, which is available to all Sky TV customers and launched in August.
This is part of what Sky Sports has described as its "biggest ever year of golf", as 2016 has seen it cover all four Majors, live PGA action and European Tour golf.
"There's even more great golf for fans to look forward to at the end of 2016, with the British Masters supported by Sky Sports and the finale of the European Tour's Race to Dubai," Sky Sports added.
