Amazon.com secures US Open tennis rights in Ireland and UK

2017 U.S. Open Tennis Tournament

Tennis fans looking forward to the US Open this year should prepare themselves to watch it on a very different kind of platform this year, after internet giants Amazon secured the rights to the Grand Slam event. In addition to the live match play, Prime Video members in the United Kingdom and Ireland will also have access to on-demand highlights and other content - all for no additional cost.

Members will also have on-demand access to matches, highlights and news conferences.

Anyone with an Amazon Prime membership will be able to access the coverage on Prime Video, which gives members unlimited streaming of films and TV episodes.

A monthly subscription for Amazon Prime Video is now €5.99. Could we soon be watching the World Cup on Netflix?

Amazon has hoovered up exclusive live-streaming rights to the U.S. Open Tennis Championships for Prime customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland in a five-year pact - another move forward in the tech giant's encroachment on TV sports.

The digital broadcaster has non-exclusive rights to this summer's Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club and the Nature Valley International at Eastbourne and will begin a five-year exclusive deal to show 37 ATP tournaments next year, taking over from Sky. The 2018 US Open marks the 50th Anniversary of the US Open, and also will be the first US Open played upon the completion of the $600 million transformation of the National Tennis Center.
