Australian Open live on TV and via live stream

January 11, 2019

Eurosport will broadcast the 2019 Australian Open exclusively live in the UK as Novak Djokovic targets his 7th Grand Slam title in Down Under. Former world number one Andy Murray, five times a runner-up in Melbourne, is playing in Australia under his protected ranking of world number two, which is used to help players who have suffered long-term in injuries, but without being seeded faces a tough draw. 

Eurosport will broadcast the 2019 Australian Open exclusively live in the UK as Novak Djokovic targets his 7th Grand Slam title in Down Under. Former world number one Andy Murray, five times a runner-up in Melbourne, is playing in Australia under his protected ranking of world number two, which is used to help players who have suffered long-term in injuries, but without being seeded faces a tough draw. 

Eurosport has held the UK’s Australian Open rights for several years and has previously sublicensed the semi-finals and finals to the BBC. The BBC will retain highlights, but the latest development means the end of its live coverage of grand slam tennis other than Wimbledon.

“Eurosport offers more Grand Slam tennis coverage than any other broadcaster in the UK and we are proud to be adding this tournament exclusively live to our strong line-up, which already includes full coverage of the French Open, the LTA grass court season and the Davis Cup,” said Susanna Dinnage for eurosport.co.uk, Managing Director of Discovery Networks UK & Ireland.

Eurosport’s coverage of the Australian Open will start at midnight on Sunday 13th January and feature LIVE coverage across Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2, with Eurosport 1 dedicated solely to the Australian Open for the duration of the tournament.

The tournament will also be available for German Tennis fans via Eurosport and online via the Eurosport Player, which will provide comprehensive coverage of the Australian Open with LIVE feeds from all 16 match courts for the first time.

Eurosport is generally available in basic cable and satellite television package. In Germany, Eurosport operates as FTA (free-to-air) channel on Astra 19.2E° satellite position.
