How to watch the Australian Open on your phone

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.
