We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Whether you prefer to follow the action on your mobile, tablet, browser or set-top box, there are multiple ways to indulge your tennis fandom. The 4 grand slams, the Davis Cup, the Billie Jean Cup and a host of ATP and WTA events are all available to watch.

How to watch tennis in Australia

Australian tennis fans really do need to keep sharp if they plan on watching every tournament. All tennis is split over paid and free-to-air services.

For grand slam tournaments, Stan Sport gives you access to all 4 events, with Channel 9 broadcasting select matches on free-to-air. Stan Sport costs $10 a month, but keep in mind you will need a regular Stan subscription on top of that, incurring an extra monthly fee.

For standard ATP and WTA tournaments outside of the grand slams, Kayo Sports, Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and beIN SPORTS CONNECT are your main options.

Kayo starts from $25 a month, which is cheaper than Foxtel Now and Foxtel iQ. So if you're not a pre-existing customer, there's a clear winner economically. The one area Foxtel iQ wins out is that it broadcasts sport in 4K.

Then there's Fetch TV, which depending on your channel subscriptions has a potential mixture of the ATP and WTA events available.

beIN SPORTS CONNECT is another option to get a tennis fix. It has a large contingent of overseas ATP and WTA events, as well as the Davis Cup and Billie Jean King Cup. You can land a beIN SPORTS CONNECT subscription for $19.99 a month.

Finally you've got Tennis TV available which says it has more than 2,000 ATP tennis matches from 63 tournaments, though it has no access to the big grand slam tournaments. Tennis TV is available for $19.99 a month or $149.99 annually.

With so many options it can be tough to decide on who to take up with. Out of all of these sports streaming services you'd be best to take up Kayo's 14-day free trial. Kayo has over 50 sports available to watch, on heaps of devices, with subscriptions starting from just $25 a month. See our Kayo review for a full breakdown.

Alternatively, you can also find a 14-day free trial on beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

How to watch the Australian Open

In 2019 we saw an enormous change to the broadcasting rights for the Australian Open. For the first time since 1973, Channel 7 didn't telecast it as the rights were picked up by Channel 9 through to 2025. From 2022 onwards, you could also watch on Stan Sport after the service launched in 2021.

Check out our Australian Open viewing guide for more information.

How to stream the French Open

From 2021's event, the tournament will have its home on Nine and Stan Sport. Signing a 3-year agreement to broadcast the French Open and Wimbledon, Nine and Stan Sport will be showing all the action from the red clay courts.

How to stream Wimbledon tennis championships

At the end of 2020, Stan Sport and Nine announced they had the broadcasting rights for Wimbledon for the next 3 years. The first Wimbledon they both broadcast was in 2021.

For more information head to our Wimbledon viewing guide.

How to stream the US Open

After the 2021 tournament, Nine and Stan Sport scored their own grand slam by obtaining the rights to broadcast the US Open for 3 years, beginning with the 2022 tournament. Previous to this point it was the only grand slam event the pair didn't air.

Head to our US Open viewing guide for more information.

How to stream Davis Cup and Billie Jean Cup tennis

If you want to stream the major non-grand slam tennis cup competitions, Channel 9 and the 9Now app have you covered for the Davis Cup and Billie Jean Cup, but only for the matches that occur in Australia. For those matches that occur overseas, the rights are owned by beIN SPORTS.

This network is available in Australia via a number of broadcasters. This includes the same trio of Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports, but this time there are 2 extra options in Fetch TV and beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

beIN channels are available on Fetch as one of its Special Interests additions. You can also subscribe directly to beIN SPORTS CONNECT. Both of these options cost $19.99 a month. You can also get a 14-day free trial on beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

How to stream other ATP and WTA tournaments

There's plenty of other tennis to enjoy every year that impacts the ranking of the best players.

The big ATP/WTA tournaments that occur in Australia, such as the ATP Cup, Sydney Tennis Classic and Adelaide International, are all available through Channel 9, 9Now and Stan Sport.

Overseas tournaments are generally broadcast through beIN SPORTS.


Stream beIN SPORTS CONNECT free for 14 days

Watch some of the biggest football leagues in the world, rugby and tennis on beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

If you're a true fan of the smaller tournaments on the tennis calendar, you may want to consider Tennis TV. As the official live video streaming service of the ATP Tour it claims up to 2,000 live matches a year from all ATP Tour tournaments.

    Hi Anne,

    We’ve got a guide to watching the US Open, which includes all the ways you can watch or stream the tournament.

    A quick summary of it is:

    • SBS shows a few matches each day for free. They advertise that they have every men’s and women’s singles quarter-final, semi-final, and both finals
    • Kayo Sports has coverage every single day of the tournament via ESPN from 2am (AEST) through to the end of the day. You can stream matches via the internet live or on-demand. They also have every finals match. Kayo costs $25/month which allows you to watch on two devices at once. It also comes with a 14-day free trial.
    • Foxtel as the same coverage of the US Open as Kayo Sports. Your best option for Foxtel is Foxtel Now. It streams via the internet. To watch the US Open on Foxtel Now it would cost you $54 to get the Sports and Essentials packs. There is also a 10-day free trial.
    • Fetch TV also has US Open coverage thanks to ESPN. However, to watch via Fetch TV you’ll first need to purchase a Fetch TV box and then add on the Vibe channel pack.

    If there’s a specific match you’re hoping to watch please let me know and I’ll do my best to find out for you.
