Trivia Game to Provide Participants with Opportunity to Compete

to Win $1 Million Dollars with Perfect Score

Turner announced today the launch of B/R Live’s “Pick ’Em Challenge” – a predictive trivia game for Capital One’s The Match: Tiger vs. Phil. The Match is the highly-anticipated, head-to-head match play competition between golf icons Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson – available on pay-per-view through Turner’s B/R Live, AT&T’s DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse and other pay TV providers Friday, Nov. 23 at high noon PT (3 p.m. ET).

B/R Live’s “Pick ’Em Challenge” available now – via B/R Live website, desktop, tablet and mobile devices –  is free to play and will provide users a chance to make picks in real time or prior to the start of the pay-per-view event to predict the outcome of each hole for a chance to win.  Players can also earn bonus points by having “streaks” of correct answers. The overall points winner will get an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas and, if a participant makes every prediction accurately, they will win the ultimate prize of $1 million dollars.**

For each question, “Pick ’Em” will present players with an overview, tips and photos of the hole to help them accurately make their selection. Players will have 60 seconds after the completion of each hole to lock in their prediction for the next hole.
