The 2023 US Open Serves Up Great Tennis — Watch and Save Money With Sling TV

Last Updated:

The US Open is the final Grand Slam tournament of the year. If you’re planning on getting in on the on-court excitement, you can watch the whole event for less with Sling TV.

In a hurry? The 2023 US Open runs from Monday, August 28 through Sunday, September 10. It will be televised exclusively on ESPN‘s family of channels — so Sling Orange will have you covered.

The US Open is held annually at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York City. The main court, Arthur Ashe Stadium, is the largest tennis stadium in the world, able to seat over 23,000 spectators.

Unlike the Australian Open (played on Plexicushion hard courts), French Open (the iconic red clay courts), or Wimbledon (traditional English grass courts), the American tournament is played on medium speed, medium-high bounce DecoTurf acrylic hard courts.

The US tennis championship is also noted for its heavier scheduling of night matches, the sometimes-rowdy New Yorker spectators, and its highly accessible state-of-the-art facilities. The event is organized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).

The 143rd edition of the tournament this year is offering over $65 million in total prize money, the highest of the Grand Slam events. The 2023 U.S. Open is a stop for both the WTA and the ATP tours.

How To Watch the US Open on Sling TV

The US Open tennis championships will be televised primarily on ESPN and ESPN2, with one contest scheduled for ABC. You can watch ESPN for the lowest price around on Sling TV.

Sling’s Orange plan is only $40.00/mo. That’s about half the price of the next cheapest service (Hulu Live, $76.99/mo). You get not just ESPN and ESPN2, but over 30 other popular channels.

Then there are add-ons and premium services you can use to customize your package, as well as access to international programming and sports.

Be aware that Sling Orange can only stream on one device at a time. It does come with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage, and works on almost all major streaming devices (and a lot of odd ones too!)
