The 2016 US Open will be the 136th edition of the tennis tournament. You can expect the action to heat up as players compete to win the final major tournament of the season. Last year, Novak Djokovic won the men’s singles finals and Flavia Pennetta won in the women’s singles finals. It will be interesting to see if Serena Williams can regain her title after her surprising loss to Pennetta last year. Despite the loss, Serena is still one of the dominant forces in tennis. Don’t miss a moment of the action. Watch the US Open matches from anywhere with a Smart DNS service.
We recommend that anyone near New York City try to attend a match. For those of us that reside outside the area, we will have to rely on TV coverage of the US Open. You will find most of the matches on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and the Tennis Channel. ESPN will be covering all the single’s matches from the quarterfinals through the championship. If you happen to be outside the United States during the tournament there are ways to still enjoy the action. We’ll show you how in a moment. In the meantime here’s a full TV schedule for the US Open coverage from August 29th through September 11th.
If you want to watch the US Open on ESPN from outside the United States, you will want to first sign up for a SmartDNS service. Otherwise, you will be geo-blocked from watching matches. You’ll find a good list of Smart DNS options below. Once you are connected through Smart DNS the geographic restrictions will go away. Now your path depends on whether or not you have a cable or satellite subscription. If you do then you can login to WatchESPN and enjoy the tournament. Otherwise you will want to sign up for Sling TV which is a streaming service that includes access to ESPN and several other popular channels for $20 a month.
Best Smart DNS to Watch the US Open
You have a few Smart DNS services to choose from. When it comes to streaming live sporting events you want to make sure the company is reliable and ready to unblock the channels you plan to watch on the device you plan to stream them on. The last thing you want to do is get ready to watch a US Open match and be disappointed. Visiting a site only to be greeted by a restricted access message is never fun but it’s especially annoying when you’re trying to watch your favorite tennis player compete. Here are some services that are up to the task.
The Smart DNS providers listed above offer free trials. The trials are open to all new members and do not require any payment information. The companies understand you need time to test their services. Just enter your email address and test out the services free of charge. The free trial will give you plenty of time to watch the beginning of the US Open and test other channels.
I enjoy using Unblock-Us for live events. The service is easy to set up and is quite reliable. They have a full list of channels along with supported devices. You can use the service on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, game console, media player and more. Unblock-Us was one of the first Smart DNS services to launch and has built up a great reputation. Unblock-Us is my favorite because it’s always worked. We haven’t had any hassles or complications with the service.
For those who want to add privacy protection I suggest OverPlay. They offer VPN access in addition to Smart DNS. You don’t need a VPN to unblock geographic restrictions. A VPN will work for that purpose but it’s more expensive and overkill if you just want to unblock geo restrictions. Some content providers like Hulu try to block VPN’s from accessing their sites. A VPN is a good choice for those who want an encrypted connection.
Don’t miss a minute of the action. Watch your favorite tennis players compete in the 2016 US Open with Smart DNS. Watch on your tv, phone, tablet, game console or media player.
