Tennis is back on Sky Sports in 2024
Sky Sports has confirmed a new home for tennis in the UK and Ireland, with Sky Sports Tennis set to launch on Sky and NOW from February 11, making tennis content available all day, every day for fans.
Sky Sports will broadcast more live tennis than anywhere else, bringing over 4,000 matches from more than 80 tournaments a year on the ATP and WTA Tours, as well as full coverage of the US Open, all exclusively live.
The introduction of the channel comes following the acquisition of the US Open, ATP and WTA Tour rights last year, and will add to the unrivalled line-up of dedicated sports channels offered by Sky, meaning more value for customers.
Sky Sports Tennis will be available to Sky Sports customers with Complete, Action and Arena packages from February 11, and viewers will be able to access multiple live court streams at the same time via the Sky Sports mobile app, the Sky TV app or red button and on NOW Bonus Streams, giving access to more live matches.
Fans will also be able to watch both Tours on NOW and follow extensive coverage of their favourite players across Sky Sports’ digital and social platforms.
