The biggest tennis tournament in the United States starts August 29 — 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 $20-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.
US Open Website to Offer Some Live Streaming
The official US Open website will be live streaming some of the matches for free throughout the two-week tournament. As of the time of this article’s publication, the site has not released a US Open streaming schedule, so it’s hard to say how extensive their free coverage will be. Updates will be published as available.
PlayStation Vue Gives Fans Another Way to Watch US Open Live Stream
PlayStation Vue offers another way to stream the US Open without cable. Like Sling TV, Vue offers packages of popular pay TV channels streaming over your internet connection with no contract required. Vue carries the ESPN networks in its packages, allowing you to watch US Open online coverage.
The main difference between Vue and Sling TV is price. Vue is more expensive than Sling TV, starting at $29.99-$39.99 a month, depending on your local market. There are also mobile restrictions that block most streaming outside of your home network, which can make it difficult to watch the US Open online on the go.

If you live outside of the US, there are still ways you can watch the US Open online and not miss a second of coverage. Click here to learn more about your streaming options.
