watch ATP Finals online

The 2020 Nitto ATP Finals will start on November 15 and run until November 22. These matches will take place at the 02 in London and but because this tournament will take place behind closed doors, you don’t have to travel all the way to the UK to see what happens. In fact, you can even watch for free in several countries. Read on to find out how to watch the 2020 ATP Finals 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 Finals 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 Finals 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 Nitto ATP Finals online free from anywhere:

  1. Start by signing up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We particularly recommend ExpressVPN, although NordVPN and Surfshark 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.

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 Finals match online, then simply cancel your account to avoid being charged.

Additionally, the BBC will be showing each day’s afternoon session, which means you can watch online with BBC iPlayer. This service is completely free to use, although users have to create an account before they can actually watch anything.

Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer 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.

Australia

Australian tennis fans can stream every Finals match on ESPN. Users can sign in with their cable TV subscription, Kayo details, or Foxtel Now account to start streaming right away.

Both Kayo and Foxtel Now start at $25 AUD per month, but they each also offer a free trial that’s long enough to watch every ATP Finals game. This means that it’s possible to sign up, stream the matches, and cancel to avoid being charged.

Note that the above services region-locked. As such, you’ll have to either be in Australia or connected to an Australian VPN server to use them.

Canada

Canadian flag

TSN has exclusive rights to show the ATP Cup in Canada. Coverage will run from 9 AM 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 $7.99 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

In the US, you can stream the 2020 ATP Finals on ESPN or the Tennis Channel. Assuming your cable package includes either of these channels, you can just visit the appropriate website and start watching right away.

Looking to stream the ATP Finals without cable? Tennis Channel Plus costs $109.99 USD annually, but there’s no monthly payment option. Instead, you’d be better off signing up for Hulu, fuboTV, YouTube TV, or Sling TV. Each of these services offers a free trial, so if you’re willing to switching midway service midway through the tournament, it’s possible to watch every game for free. Otherwise, Sling TV is the least expensive option, at $30 per month.

All 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.
