Sinclair Launches Tennis Channel In UK As Streaming Service
Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Tennis Channel is now available to British tennis fans thanks to the Aug. 19 U.K. launch of the Tennis Channel International streaming service.
The debut follows launches in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in April 2020, and this year’s introduction in Greece.
Tennis Channel International features a 24-hour streamed programming channel and will be the first British TV platform devoted exclusively to tennis, Sinclair said. Programming includes original Tennis Channel series, documentaries, features, instruction, highlights and select matches on-demand. Tennis Channel International will also cover live competition from British events, starting with the UK Pro League Aug. 23-29 from the Chelsea Harbour Club in London, featuring some of the best of British tennis talent. Tennis Channel International will also show the LTA National League Finals Sept. 10-12. More British tennis events will be added to the lineup in the coming weeks.
British tennis fans will also be able to follow every professional tennis match in the world through MatchCast, a scoring and data interface that lets tennis fans follow every match around the world using “never-before-seen dynamic graphics and more tennis statistics and data than anything currently available in the sport,” Sinclair said.
The service will be available in the U.K. at www.tennischannel.com and via the Tennis Channel International app on iOs and Android mobile devices and tablets as well as on Roku, FireTV and select smart TVs for £2.49 per month.
