The biggest tennis tournament in the United States starts August 27 — the US Open. The best known names in tennis will compete in the final Grand Slam of the tennis season. Looking to watch a US Open live stream without cable?
This year, there are more legal options for US Open live stream than ever before. While the ESPN stable of networks will be the broadcast home of the tournament, there are multiple options available to watch US Open online without cable.
Sling TV Offers US Open Live Streaming on ESPN Networks
Sling TV offers complete US Open live stream coverage. The live streaming service from Dish Network gives subscribers access to a number of popular pay TV channels on their TV, mobile devices, or computer using their internet connection — all without a contract and for the fraction of the price of cable TV (full Sling TV review here). With Sling TV’s basic $25-per-month Orange package, you get over 20 channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (the latter through the WatchESPN app, using your Sling TV credentials). All three of these channels will be providing extensive US Open streaming coverage, so you don’t have to miss a moment of the tournament.
You can try Sling TV free for 7 days, a great way to test out the service to see if you like it. Signing up for Sling TV is fast, easy and you could be watching US Open tennis online in minutes. Click here to start your free trial.
Of course, while Sling TV offers a 7-day free trial, the US Open lasts for two weeks. That means the free trial won’t let you watch the US Open online in full. Thankfully, Sling TV is currently running a deal where new customers can get a Roku 3 streaming device for 50% off or a free Roku Streaming 2 when signing up for 3 months of prepaid service. Both of these devices connect to your TV, letting you stream Sling TV and over 2,000 other apps (such as Netflix, Hulu, etc.) directly to your television. It’s a great way to enjoy US Open live streaming on the big screen. Click here to learn more about this special offer.
Watch the US Open with YouTube TV and unlimited cloud DVR
You’re familiar with YouTube (home of many great tennis highlights), but did you know about its live TV service, YouTube TV?
YouTube TV one of the best streaming services out there, and one of the few that offers unlimited cloud DVR. At $40 a month, it isn’t nearly as cheap as Sling TV, but you get a strong streaming package overall.
YouTube TV has only one channel package with over 50 channels to choose from. Thankfully, it offers all the ESPNs, which means you can watch all the magic of the US Open.
Hulu with Live TV gets you the US Open plus on-demand content for days
Hulu with Live TV combines the best of both worlds, offering a live TV and a binge-watching paradise in the same place. You’ve got only one channel package to choose from, but don’t sweat it—you’ll get all the ESPN channels with it. For over 50 live channels and the entire Hulu on-demand library at $40 a month, Hulu Live offers up a lot of value.
You also get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage with your subscription, which is a lot less than YouTube TV’s unlimited storage. But that’s still plenty to record the US Open with and skip all the commercials you want. Just make sure to delete stuff after you watch it and make room.
Watch the US Open for free with a 7-day trial.
