How to Watch Tennis Channel Outside the US in 2021

By Novak Bozovic / June 15, 2021

If you like to follow tennis tournaments and championships, you already know that Tennis Channel is the only place that'll meet all your needs. However, even though Tennis Channel has started to reach new countries, that only applies to its cable TV channel. So, if you want to live-stream this channel, you're probably wondering – how to watch Tennis Channel outside the US?

Before we go further, know that it's possible to unblock and access Tennis Channel from anywhere in the world. That can be done using a VPN, and we'll show you which one to use, as well as how to use it. So let's jump right in.

Where Is Tennis Channel Available? 

Tennis Channel is available only in the US. If you try to access its website from elsewhere, you will encounter a geo-block message (saying "Coming Soon"), preventing your access.

However, know that Tennis Channel also has an international version, currently available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (with many other countries to follow soon). Still, it's worth noting that if you want everything that Tennis Channel offers, you'll want to access its US version – and that's precisely what we'll teach you.

How to Watch Tennis Channel Outside the US

So, to watch Tennis Channel outside the US, go through these 8 steps:

Step #1: Find the Best-Working VPN for Unblocking Tennis Channel

Just like other streaming services, Tennis Channel has certain geo-blocks in place. Therefore, you need a VPN capable of unblocking this streaming service, with plenty of servers in the US. Based on our hands-on tests, your best bet right now is ExpressVPN.

There are many reasons why we recommend ExpressVPN, as you’ll discover later on in the article. Keep in mind that this is the best VPN available right now, suitable for beginners and advanced users alike.

Step #2: Get Your VPN Subscription

Now, it’s time to get your ExpressVPN subscription. Proceed to its website, where you need to click on 'Get ExpressVPN.' A sign-up form will open, letting you pick a subscription plan first. Keep in mind that long-term subscriptions come with significant savings.

Then, provide your email address and pay for the chosen plan. Once done, ExpressVPN's team will send you a confirmation email letting you know that your subscription is active. Once that happens, proceed to the next step.

Step #3: Download & Install the VPN on Your Device(s)

To unblock and watch Tennis Channel outside the US, you’ll need to have an active VPN session on your device. Therefore, you need to learn how to download and install ExpressVPN on your device. The link you’ve provided covers more than 60 platforms that ExpressVPN supports, so make sure to take a look.

Going Through Initial ExpressVPN Setup

Once you install ExpressVPN, run it for the first time. You'll need to go through its initial setup, which involves logging in to your account (using an ExpressVPN activation code if you run the VPN on a computer) and setting up the way this VPN works.

Step #4: Connect to a VPN Server in the US

Each time you wish to watch Tennis Channel outside the US, you’ll need to connect to a server located in that country. So, launch ExpressVPN and make sure you’re on its home screen. Then, click on the button just below the circular ON/OFF switch. A new window will open, showing you all the servers available via this VPN service.

Connecting to US Server via ExpressVPN Interface on macOS

Use the top-placed search bar to look up 'United States,' and then double-click on any VPN server found there. Your VPN connection will activate after a couple of moments (ExpressVPN's home screen should turn green).

Step #5 (If You Have a Subscription): Unblock & Access Tennis Channel

Now, proceed to visit Tennis Channel’s website. You’ll see two types of content there. There’s free content, which you can access after you log in using your TV provider’s credentials. And then, there’s premium content, which hides behind a Tennis Channel Plus subscription.

Step #6 (If You Want to Subscribe): Get a New Google/Apple Account

If you don’t have a subscription to Tennis Channel, the easiest method is to get one via Tennis Channel’s app for iOS or Android. To make that happen, you must have an American Google or Apple account. If you don’t have one, proceed to create a new Google account or get a new Apple ID.

While signing up, make sure to be connected to a VPN server in the US. You’ll be asked for a US address as well, so feel free to use this tool for generating random US addresses. While Apple will ask you for a US address, Google probably won’t do so. That’s why it’s crucial to have an active VPN session in the background.

Signing Up for Apple ID

Once done signing up, make sure to log in to your new account on your Android or iOS device. That means you need to log out of your old account and then log in using your new account (done via the Settings app on your device).

Step #7: Buy & Redeem a Google/Apple Gift Card

To get a Tennis Channel Plus subscription, you’ll need to pay $109.99 per year. So, you need to have those funds already available on your Google or Apple account. The easiest way to do that is by getting a Google or Apple gift card. The provided links will take you to Amazon, where you can buy gift cards that can be delivered to your email inbox.

Buying iTunes Apple Gift Card

Once you get a gift card, learn how to redeem that code via your Google or Apple account. Redeeming your gift card should make the funds available on your account so that in the next step you can subscribe to Tennis Channel even outside the US.

Step #8: Download the Tennis Channel App & Get Your Subscription

Now, proceed to download the Tennis Channel app (iOSAndroid). You can do that by visiting the Play Store or the iOS App Store on your device (just like you would download any other app). Once again, we remind you to have an active VPN session in the background.

Steps to Download Tennis Channel on iPhone

Once you open the Tennis Channel app, access its menu via the hamburger button in the top-left corner. Then, tap 'Subscribe to Plus.' You'll now see an overview of Tennis Channels' Plus subscription, so confirm your decision and finalize the procedure. That's it!
