The Australian Open tennis is part of Australia’s crown jewels of sport and will be televised live for free. You’ll find all the action available on Channel 9 as well as on the 9Now live streaming service which is available through the web or as an app on mobiles, tablets and other devices.

You can sign-up to a VPN risk free with a 30-day money-back guarantee. So, if you can’t get it to work for any reason, then you can simply cancel and won’t be out of pocket. Take a look below and we’ll show you how that’s done.
Watch the Australian Open 2021 from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Australian Open rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
Paid-for VPN services, such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN, are entirely safe, come with 24/7 customer support and can be used to watch sport and other entertainment from any part of the world on almost any device you’d care to use. Try it out with the link below and get three months free.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There’s 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it today for tennis.

How to watch the Australian Open 2021 in the USA
The Australian Open 2021 US TV rights are split between ESPN and the Tennis Channel. If your satellite or cable package package already includes one of these, then you’re in. If not, then you’ll need to contact your provider and upgrade.
Tennis Channel Plus $99.99 per year
Catch the Australian Open 2021 and stream over 4500 live and on-demand matches from over 100 ATP & WTA events, including coverage from Roland Garros too. Not cheap but, if you’re a tennis nut, then this is the way to go.
No need to worry if neither of these are available on your TV platform of choice or if the upgrade subscription is extortionate. You can watch a live stream of the Australian Open 2021 directly through the Tennis Channel Plus player on all good smart platforms including iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV.
