If you want to stream tennis matches in South Africa then your five main options are to watch tennis on ESPN+, BBC iPlayer, SonyLiv, Hotstar and BeIn Sports Australia. These websites are all blocked in South Africa so you need to first sign up for a free trial with Smart DNS. Once you’ve got it set up you will be able to access these and other sites that aren’t normally available here.
Each of the websites mentioned above stream tennis tournaments but you’ll need to make your choice depending on the specific competition you want to watch. If you want to watch Wimbledon online then you can do so on BBC iPlayer Channel 2 (free) or sign up for ESPN+.
ESPN+ – For $4.95 a year you get to watch loads of sport including a lot of tennis. If you’re interested in the pro tournaments like Wimbledon then this is a great option. Here’s our guide on how to get ESPN+ outside the USA.
BBC iPlayer – A great channel to watch Wimbledon online free. Doesn’t stream a lot of other tennis but a good spot to look for other sport like Rugby.
SonyLiv – On SonyLiv you can stream the ATP Masters live and in HD. These tennis matches are only available to stream on their Premium subscription. It’s a paid service but only costs around R250 per year. They make it a little tricky to sign up if you’re not in India though. Check out our guide on how to sign up for SonyLiv outside India. SonyLiv also has loads of tennis highlights and interviews to watch.
Hotstar – Hotstar stream the US Open tennis matches live on their site. They also show replays of each game and have great tennis highlights videos too. This is all available on their paid Premium subscription service but it also works out to around R250 per year which is a lot cheaper than DSTV.
BeIN Sports – The Australian BeIN Sports website streams WTA tennis games but only on their paid subscription service. It works out around R200 per month so it’s not cheap but still not bad if you’re a big tennis fan. They also offer a lot of soccer streaming.
With each of these sites make sure you’ve got your Smart DNS proxy set up first and also that your channel settings are right on the “Regions” page on the Smart DNS website. If you need any help setting it up check out our guide.
If you’re just looking to watch tennis highlights, interviews and other tennis related content then check out Tennis Channel Everywhere. You can’t sign up for their live streaming without a US cable television account but the free content is pretty good.
These are your best options for streaming tennis online. Our preference is to sign up for SonyLiv and Hotstar because then you get to watch cricket too. There are other options with Hulu Live subscriptions or on Canada’s CBC Player but these are all a lot more expensive.
