Sky Sports has won exclusive UK broadcast rights for the US Open Championships tennis tournament covering the 2023 tournament up to (and including) the 2027 Grand Slam event.

Sky Sports will offer coverage of Men’s and Women’s tournaments, as well as Doubles, Mixed Doubles, Juniors, and Wheelchair competitions. The service will broadcast a minimum of 135 hours of competitive tennis throughout the two-week event. Extensive coverage of the tournament will be offered across Sky Sports’ linear channels, as well as its social and digital channels.

The agreement represents the return of U.S. Open coverage to Sky Sports after an eight-year gap, during which Amazon won rights to show the tennis tournament to Prime Video viewers. Eurosport also briefly won rights to the tournament during this period. Prior to this gap, Sky Sports had consistently offered U.S. Open coverage from 1991-2015.

Jonathan Licht, MD, Sky Sports, says: “We are excited to partner with the United States Tennis Association once again to deliver the U.S. Open. We have had a great history with the USTA and remember Andy Murray’s 2012 US Open win as one of the great moments on Sky Sports. This is another huge sporting event, and we look forward to bringing tennis fans more of what they love and welcoming new fans to the sport.”
