Women’s Sports Not Listed in the Sports - pressing C on remote

Why aren’t women’s sports listed in the sports app when C is pressed on the remote? For instance, the PGA is listed under Golf and there is a LPGA tournament going on at the same time that’s not listed. Can’t even pick LPGA as a Favorite for it to show up under favorites.

I wonder too. It’s sexist and It may be time to drop that app or change providers altogether.

or it may be a bandwidth issue and they took the most popular sports based on TV viewership (just a WAG here)

Or, maybe women’s sports get fewer viewers because of sexist policies that make it easier just to watch men’s sports? The direction of the causal connection is not so clear as you seem to think.

Thank you for your feedback. We're always adding new sports, leagues and functionality to the Sports App, and will continue to assess additional areas moving forward. We have only recently added the PGA Tour, and dont currently have support for the majors, European Tour or LPGA so we are looking at opportunities to improve across the board. You can see upcoming LPGA events by saying "Golf" into your voice remote, or by hitting 'Guide' twice, selecting sports, and then selecting Golf.

It is also equally plausible to surmise that they aren't as popular because they just aren't as entertaining to as many people in a very crowded sports calendar;  I'm am happy that you have such passion for women's sports, I enjoy them too, just not as much as the equivalent men's sports. That does NOT make me a sexist or bigot or anything else of that nature

 

To each their own....and enjoy what you enjoy.

Women's Basketball biggest tournament is also March Madness.  You'd think that this huge event would be advertised.  Maybe if you put so of the women's huge events on the "C" then other people would come across it and decide to watch it. 

By you not putting any women under the "C" you are making yourselves look like chauvinist pigs.
