Wimbledon 2019 begins on Monday, July 1st and ends on July 14th. If you want to watch without cable, there are several options to choose from, depending on where you live. Here's how to watch.
If you have a cable connection
ESPN will broadcast every game of the tournament (more than 500 games!) On ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPN + for US viewers. Matches start earlier in the round, and many start around 6:00 am EST. You can find the full schedule (and results) on the ESPN website.
If you do not have a cable connection
If you do not have a cable TV connection, you can still watch the tournament. The problem is that you will still need to get them through a streaming service that routes the ESPN channels. Fortunately, most popular streaming services, such as Sling, YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue.
You do not know what to choose? No worries, we have you covered with a complete overview of which streaming TV application is made for you.
Best of all, most of these services offer some sort of discounted trial period so you can at least try them first. None requires a long-term contract, so you can sign up for a month, play football, and cancel your subscription.
If you live outside the United States
In the UK, Wimbledon will be broadcast by the BBC. The live matches will be broadcast on BBC1, BBC2 and the red BBC button. Online, you can watch the tournament streaming on BBC Sport site or through BBC iPlayer. You can also watch the matches using the BBC Sport app (iOS and Android) or the BBC iPlayer application (iOS and Android).
If you live outside the United States and the United Kingdom, the official Wimbledon website contains a list of all broadcasters around the world who will broadcast the tournament.
Do you have problems bypassing geographical restrictions? Use a VPN
Whether you come from your home country or live in a place where the restrictions are ridiculous, the solution to work around the restrictions is always to use a VPN, which gives the impression that you come from a different place. Our VPN choices are:
- ExpressVPN: This choice of VPN is incredibly fast, easy to use and offers very user-friendly clients for each platform.
- StrongVPN: This VPN is not as user-friendly, but very fast and useful for getting around restrictions because it is not as well known.
In general, the way around the restrictions is to switch the VPN server to another country that has access to the website you are trying to view. If it's still stuck, try another server. Both choices offer free trials, so you do not have to pay for something that does not work for you.
