How to watch the Australian Open 2015 online

Most of the TV channels listed above are also streaming online. They are geo-restricted, meaning that the content is available only for users located in certain countries. For example, only users located in UK are able to access BBC iPlayer. If you really want to access a channel that is not available for you you can do so by using a VPN or SmartDNS service like HideMyAss or ibVPN / ibDNS.

You may also use SopCast for accessing TV channels on your computer or Android devices.  After the installation, start the application and look for a TV channel that broadcasts Australian Open matches.  The quality of the transmission is rather poor, but it is better than nothing.

Conclusion

The first Grand Slam of the year is always spectacular and it is must-see for the tennis fans. As listed above there are more than 100 channels that show the matches live on TV and online.  Enjoy!
