The 2022 US Open live streams are underway, and we’ve already had a few shock results in the final Grand Slam of the year.
Many of the big games will air for free on Australia’s 9Now service, but don’t worry if you’re on holiday while it’s on — because you can watch 2022 US Open live streams from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).
2022 US Open live streams: TV schedule, dates
The first day proved to be an exciting one all round, capped off by Serena Williams winning her opening match against Montenegro’s Danka Kovinic. The bad news, for her hopes of a fairytale finale, is that she’ll next face the No.2 seed Anett Kontaveit on Wednesday.
However, men’s No.4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas is out, having lost to Daniel Galan of Colombia, while tenth seed Taylor Fritz and 16th seed Roberto Bautista Agut also crashed out of the tournament at the first hurdle. The likes of top seed Daniil Medvedev, fifth seed Casper Ruud and Britain’s Andy Murray are all safely through, though.
In the women’s singles, just one top-16 seed fell: Daria Kasatkina, number 10 at Flushing Meadows, lost to Britain’s Harriet Dart. There were wins for the likes of Leylah Fernandez, Coco Gauff, Ons Jabeur and the aforementioned Kontaveit.
There’s sure to be plenty of excitement and intrigue throughout the two weeks, so make sure you catch all the action by watching a US Open live stream. We’ll show you how to do that below.
US Open live streams — what to watch today
There are several big names in action at the US Open today — and they don’t come much bigger than Rafael Nadal. The Spanish second seed takes on Rinky Hijikata of Australia this evening in New York, as he seeks to add yet another Gran Slam title to the pile.
Today’s key games: Tuesday, Aug. 30
• Iga Swiatek vs Jasmine Paolini (11 a.m.)
• Alison van Uytvanck vs Venus Williams (2 p.m.*)
• Rinky Hijikata vs Rafael Nadal (7 p.m.)
• Emma Raducanu vs Alize Cornet (7 p.m.)
• Naomi Osaka vs Danielle Collins (9 p.m.*)
• Sebastian Baez vs Carlos Alcaraz (9 p.m.*)
All times ET. Starred matches are approximate start time
His compatriot Carlos Alcarez, seeded third, also plays today — against Sebastian Baez of Argentina, while other interesting men’s singles ties include Diego Schwartzman vs Jack Sock, Daniel Altmaier against Jannik Sinner and John Isner vs Federico Delbonis.
In the women’s singles, top seed Iga Swiatek begins her quest for the US Open against Jasmine Paolini of Italy. Venus Williams also plays today, against Alison van Uytvanck, but the biggest ties are this evening: defending champion Emma Raducanu has a tough match against Alize Cornet, while Naomi Osaka vs Danielle Collins should be well worth watching.
Read on to find out how to watch them all.
FREE US Open live streams
How to watch US Open live streams for FREE in 2022
If you’re lucky enough to live in Australia then you can look forward to FREE US Open live streams in 2022.
That’s because the free-to-air Channel Nine and its 9Now (opens in new tab) streaming service have the rights to the action and will be showing wall-to-wall coverage of the tournament.
But what if you’re usually based in Australia but aren’t at home for a particular US Open live stream? Maybe you’re on holiday and don’t want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you’d usually be able to watch for free at home?
Don’t worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We’ll show you how to do that below.
US Open live streams around the world
How to watch the 2022 US Open live streams from anywhere with a VPN
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you’re surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you’re in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
For instance, an Australian who’s currently in the U.S. could watch the US Open live streams on 9Now, even though they’re not in Australia.
They’re totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We’ve tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It’s fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we’ve said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you’re in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you’d select Australia from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 9Now and watch the tennis.
How to watch US Open live streams in the US
Tennis fans in the U.S. will want ESPN to catch the US Open live streams.
The cable service will have extensive coverage from Flushing Meadows on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes, with some matches also on its ESPN Plus streaming service.
ESPN is available through most cable packages as well as some of the best cable TV alternatives, including Sling TV, Fubo.TV, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.
Our pick of these would be Sling TV (which is also one of the best streaming services): the Sling Orange package costs just $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including ESPN. Plus, right now Sling is offering 50% off the first month (opens in new tab).
Fubo.TV, meanwhile, costs $70 per month for 121 channels and includes ESPN. It also offer a 7-day free trial.
As well as being available through your cable service, you can also stream the action via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN’s website. However, you’ll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions.
ESPN Plus, meanwhile, is available via the ESPN website and many of the best streaming devices. It’s also a very well-priced service as these things go, with a subscription costing $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. That’s a jump up from the previous $6.99/month, but still a good deal.
And remember, if you’re usually based in the U.S. but aren’t there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
How to watch the 2022 US Open live streams in the UK
British tennis lovers will be able to watch the 2022 US Open live streams on Prime Video (opens in new tab). What’s more, you can sign up to a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime if you’ve not had one before and enjoy the tournament without spending a penny.
There’ll be comprehensive coverage every day of the tournament, complete with expert analysis from former stars including Martina Navratilova, Tim Henman, Daniela Hantuchova, Greg Rusedski and Jim Courier.
Going on holiday this week or next? Sign up to ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) or another VPN service and you’ll be able to use the services you already subscribe to.
How to watch the 2022 US Open live streams in Canada
Canadians can get all the US Open action on TSN (in English) or RSN (in French), as part of a cable TV package. If they’ve cut the cord, they can sign up for TSN (opens in new tab) or RDS (opens in new tab) streaming accounts for $19.99/month or $199/year.
Not at home right now? Use ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) or another VPN service to trick your device into thinking you’re still in Canada.
How to watch the 2022 US Open live streams in Australia
Aussies can watch the 2022 US Open live streams on Channel Nine, which means the big games will also air on the on-demand service 9Now (opens in new tab).
That’s great news wherever you are, because 9Now is available for free; all you need is an Australian postcode. That means Australians who aren’t in the country right now will simply need to sign up to a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) in order to watch all the action as if they were back home.
However, 9Now won’t have every single match — so to watch it all, ad-free and in up to 4K resolution, you’ll need a subscription to Stan Sport (opens in new tab).
Stan can be accessed via a wide variety of devices including many smart TVs, iOS and Android phones, Chromecast, Apple TV and more — plus it costs a very reasonable $20 AUD per month ($10 for a standard subscription and $10 for the Sport add-on). A 30-day FREE trial (opens in new tab) gives you a taste of the platform — and the good news is that the Sport add-on also has a 7-day FREE trial.
You’ll need to pay extra to access HD or 4K streams and to increase the number of devices you watch on, but even if you go for the full-fat Premium sub with the Sport add-on, you’d still only be looking at $29/month.
As well as the US Open live streams, Stan also has Champions League live streams, a huge amount of live rugby and much more.
