How to watch the 2020 ATP Cup online

The ATP Cup 2020 will take place from January 3–12 in Perth, Brisbane, and Sydney. There’ll be six matches each day until January 9, after which, there’ll be one match per day. Luckily, you don’t have to travel all the way to Australia to see what happens; in fact, the events will be broadcast live and free of charge in several countries. Read on to find out how to watch the ATP Cup live stream online, from abroad.

It’s important to note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. Although third-party streams will almost certainly be available, these are often very laggy, with low-resolution video: not exactly what you need for a fast-paced sport like tennis. Also, unofficial sources are often taken down for copyright violations, so you might not get to see who wins. With so many legitimate ways to watch the ATP Cup online, there’s no need to use unlicensed streams.

These matches will only be shown on region-locked services. This means that if you’re traveling abroad and there’s no official broadcaster in your country, you’ll need a VPN to watch on your usual home streaming services.

How to watch the ATP Cup live stream from abroad with a VPN

Streaming services often check the user’s IP address to see if they’re in a supported country or not. The thing is that when you connect to a VPN, you’re given a new, region-specific IP address for whichever country your chosen server is in. This tricks sites and services into thinking you’re actually somewhere else and lets you access them from abroad. It’s easier than it sounds; just follow the steps below to unblock the ATP Cup from anywhere.

Here’s how to live stream the ATP Cup 2020 online free from anywhere:

  1. Start by signing up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We particularly recommend ExpressVPN, although CyberGhost and NordVPN are both excellent low-cost options.
  2. Next, download and install the VPN app. Note that there are often several different versions to choose from, so make sure to get the right one. When you’re done, log in.
  3. Choose one of the official ATP broadcasters from the list below. Then, connect to a server in the appropriate country. This means that you’ll need a British server to unblock BBC iPlayer, for instance, or a Canadian server to use TSN.
  4. Create an account if one is needed. Note that some streaming platforms will check to see if your payment method is linked to an address in the required country.
  5. Now try playing a video. If everything has worked, it should load instantly. If not, try clearing your cookies and refreshing the page.

The ATP Cup will be broadcast live, which is why it’s so important to test your VPN ahead of time. This way, you’ll know of any problems well in advance, giving you the opportunity to seek help from your VPN’s customer support team. Of course, this also ensures that you won’t miss the start of a match due to unforeseen technical trouble.

How to live stream the ATP Cup for free on UK TV

British flag - union jackBritish flag - union jack - UK

British fans can stream all of the action from the courts live on Amazon Prime Video. This service is included as part of your Amazon Prime subscription, so you may already have access to it. If not, Amazon Prime costs £7.99 per month and comes with a 30-day free trial. This means you can sign up, watch every ATP Cup match online, then simply cancel your account to avoid being charged.

If you’d prefer, you can also stream the entire tournament on Tennis TV. However, this service costs £9.99 per month and doesn’t offer a free trial. As such, Amazon Prime Video is the better option for most people.

Amazon Prime Video and Tennis TV are both region-locked. This means that you’ll need a VPN to access them from abroad. ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to try the service out risk-free. If you’re not impressed, just cancel to claim a full refund.

Where else can I watch the ATP Cup live stream online?

Want to watch the ATP Cup 2020 from outside of the UK? No problem; below, we’ll let you know which networks are showing the event in your country:

Australia

Good news: every single match of the ATP Cup 2020 will be broadcast live and free-of-charge on 9Now. You will have to create an account before you can watch anything, but this is easy and only takes a minute.

Note that 9Now is region-locked. As such, you’ll have to either be in Australia or connected to an Australian VPN server to use it.

Canada

Canadian flag

TSN has exclusive rights to show the ATP Cup in Canada. Coverage will run from 6 PM EST every day. If your cable TV package already includes TSN, you can sign in and start streaming immediately at no extra cost.

If you don’t have cable, you can sign up for TSN Direct instead. Daily passes start at $4.99 CAD, but since this event will run for ten days, it’s actually less expensive to choose the $19.99 monthly pass. Unfortunately, there’s no free trial period included.

TSN is only available in Canada. Despite this, you can access the service from abroad by connecting to a Canadian VPN server.

US

USA flag

Tennis fans in the US can watch this event on the Tennis Channel. If your cable TV package includes this channel, you can just sign in to the website and start watching right away.

Looking to stream the ATP Cup without cable? You can also watch on Tennis TV, although this costs $14.99 USD per month and doesn’t offer any kind of free trial.

Both of the services above are region-locked. As such, you’ll have to either be in the US or connected to an American VPN server to use them.

Other locations

Don’t worry if we haven’t mentioned your country above; the 2020 ATP Cup will air in dozens of countries all around the world. You can start by checking the full list of international ATP broadcasters but it’s worth remembering that not every network will allow you to watch online.
