If you're out and about during the two weeks of the Australian Open, don't panic because you can still watch it on your phone. The broadcast rights to the Australian Open are exclusive to Channel 9. So while that leaves many Kayo Sports and Foxtel customers out in the lurch, there's a simple solution.
Every single match of the Australian Open will be broadcast via 9Now. That's right 9Now will give you access to every single court at the Australian Open. Viewers should actually consider themselves somewhat lucky they've got this option as watching via TV there'll only be matches on Channel 9 and Gem, which severely limits you.
How to watch the Australian Open via 9Now
For those who are unfamiliar with the streaming service 9Now, don't worry it's quite straightforward. All users must have an account to use 9Now, though luckily it's entirely free to get one. You can sign up via email or log in with Facebook.
You'll only continue to be bothered by 9Now if you opt in to receive its marketing and communication emails. Otherwise it's a guilt-free no-strings-attached service, other than data charges. So make sure you mobile plan has enough data.
You can get access to 9Now through iOS and Android phones or tablets, PC or Mac via any browser.
You can also get 9Now onto your big screen via Apple TV, Chromecast, Telstra TV, Fetch TV, Freeview Plus or a PS4 video game console. A native app can also be found to download unless pre-installed on recent model Sony, LG, Samsung and Android TVs.
