Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

The US Open 2015 is finally here! The 135th edition of the tournament and the final grand slam of the year is going to be extra special for the players since the prize money has been increased by more than 10 percent to almost 45 million dollars. This year the hard-court tournament returns to its traditional 14 day format (in 2013 and 2014 it was spread across 15 days) which is going to have an impact on the schedule of some of the games.

US Open Predictions

While defending champions Marin Cilic and Serena Williams would like to retain their titles, there are many other contenders who can spring a surprise. Serena has had a fantastic year and if she manages to win the title, she will complete the calendar grand slam as well as achieve a hat-trick of US Open wins. However, she is likely to face fierce resistance from Petra Kvitová who has won two Grand Slam titles recently. As far as men’s events are considered, Novak Djokovic has been in top form for quite some time and has received top seeding for the event. But we must not forget seasoned players Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray who are unlikely to give up without giving a tough fight.

US Open Broadcast

Tennis fans from more than 200 countries can watch the event live on their TVs. The event organizers have partnered with multiple sports channels and cable TV providers like ESPN (for United States), Eurosport (for Europe), WOWOW (for Japan), CCTV (for China), Sky Sports (UK and Ireland) and Fox Sports (for Australia) to make the event available to US Open fans from across the world.

If you wish to stream US Open matches on a laptop, Smartphone or tablet then there are several options available. Here is a list of websites where the event is available for streaming on demand:

United States:


United Kingdom: http://www.skysports.com/watch

Europe: http://www.eurosportplayer.com/

Japan: http://www.wowow.co.jp/pg_info/detail/106315/index.php#intro

Australia: http://www.foxsports.com.au/video/live

China: http://sports.cntv.cn/live/cctv5/

Middle East: http://www.ar.beinsports.net/

While there are multiple options to watch the event online, most of the above services are GEO-IP restricted. This means you won’t be able to watch the games unless you happen to be physically present within the country where the service is available (United States for ESPN, UK and Ireland for Sky Sports, Europe for Eurosport and so on).

If you are an expat or a tourist who is currently based in a country where the official US Open streams are not available then the best option is to access them by changing your IP address. IP changing services such as VPNs allow you to virtually reside in a country of your choice and access the streaming services that are available to the local population. For instance, you can switch to a US IP and watch US Open matches via ESPN’s site or get a UK IP and stream the games through Sky Sports.

Here are some recommended VPN service providers that allow you to stream the US Open 2015 from any location:
