WHEN IS THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN?

The Australian Open has been expanded from 14 to 15 days and will take place between January 14 and January 28. Because of the extra day of play, the first round of the tournament will be split into 3 days, to give more fans a chance to see the players on the court in person.

Unfortunately for US tennis fans, the majority of matches will take place in the middle of the night, so it might be hard to catch them live. But with DIRECTV you can record as much of the tournament as you want, so you can catch the action after you get those precious 8 hours in.

WHAT NETWORK IS THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN TENNIS TOURNAMENT ON?

Fans will have to tune into a few different channels to catch the most of the Australian Open; those networks are ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN+. ESPN is the official broadcaster of the event in the US, and the men’s and women’s finals will air on ESPN.

You can watch the Australian Open in the US with DIRECTV on ESPN (channel 206), ESPN2 (channel 209) and ABC (check local listings for channel number). Fans can access ESPN+ through an internet connected device, but it will require a paid subscription to gain access.

Tennis Channel won’t broadcast any matches live, but will have recaps, analysis and some replays available for fans to watch.
