The 2023 US Open, the biggest event in American tennis, is happening right now. This year’s US Open started Tuesday, August 22 (qualifiers), and runs through Monday, September 11.

Whether you’re a network TV tennis watcher, or you like to stream your sports, it’s never been easier to watch Djokovic and Gauff compete for the championship. Likewise, you’ll want to tune in to watch Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek defend their titles.

ESPN and ESPN+ will air the US Open, while the Tennis Channel will be covering some matches. Here’s what you need to know to tune in and watch the action.

How to watch the 2023 US Open

While ESPN is included in most cable TV packages, you don’t have to have a cable TV to catch the US Open.  One of the most cost-effective ways to get ESPN coverage is through a subscription to Sling TV. The streamer offers access to the ESPN, NFL Network, local NBC, Fox and ABC affiliates (where available) and ESPN with its Orange + Blue Tier plan. Also worth noting: Sling TV comes with 50 hours of cloud-based DVR recording space included, perfect for recording all the season’s top NFL matchups.

That plan normally costs $60 per month, but the streamer is currently offering a 50% off promotion for your first month, so you’ll pay just $30. You can learn more by tapping the button below.

Top features of Sling TV Orange + Blue tier:

  • There are 46 channels to watch in total, including local NBC, FOX and ABC affiliates (where available).
  • You get access to most local NFL games and nationally broadcast games at the lowest price.
  • All subscription tiers include 50 hours of cloud-based DVR storage.


Sports fans: Upgrade to Sling TV’s Sports Extra package

If your love of sport doesn’t stop at tennis, Sling TV has a new offering for the 2023 NFL Season called Sports Extra. The new package is designed for NFL and college football fans, with access to NFL Redzone, ESPN, NFL, SEC, ACC, PAC 12, Big10 and Longhorn Networks.

There’s a great preseason deal on Sling TV Sports Extra going on right now: You can get five months of Sling TV Orange + Blue + Sports Extra for $274. That works out to just $55 per month, an even better price than subscribing to just the $60 per month Orange + Blue plan. It’s the most cost effective way to stream most NFL games, college football and more this year.
