LIV Golf Plus Review
LIV Golf Plus is the streaming service for the controversial golf league owned by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund. The app provides live video coverage for every 2023 event, as well as highlights from prior tournaments. On launch day, at least, we could not fast-forward or rewind while watching tournament replays.
Since its inception, LIV has been attacked as “sportswashing” to distract from Saudi Arabia’s many human rights violations. Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, who controls the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund, is believed to have ordered the 2018 murder of Washington Post journalist and Saudi government critic Jamal Khashoggi, according to U.S. intelligence reports.
