BACK9NETWORK was a 24/7 golf lifestyle cable television network and media company based in Hartford, Connecticut. It was developed as an alternative to traditional media's focus on professional golf tournament coverage. BACK9NETWORK.com, the online clubhouse for BACK9NETWORK, delivered editorial and original content on golf lifestyle.

History

BACK9NETWORK was founded in 2010, first launched online in April 2012, and re-launched their website in January 2013. The network raised private equity from a number of shareholders, and received a $5 million loan from the state of Connecticut (which closed in March 2013). In September 2014, BACK9NETWORK launched on DIRECTV in 20 million TV households.[1]

On February 23, 2015 the channel suspended operations due to a lack of funding. In December 2015 the company filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 and exited bankruptcy in July 2016.
