How to watch the US Open in the US

US Open coverage is spread across NBC, USA, and Peacock in the US. Round 3 coverage will take place on Saturday. Coverage will be available from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on USA, before switching to NBC until 8 p.m. ET. Peacock will also carry coverage from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Final Round coverage will start on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on USA, before switching to NBC until 7 p.m. ET. Peacock coverage will also be available from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Peacock subscriptions start at just $5.99 a month.

While Peacock will cover you for the portion of the tournament that airs on USA, you’ll need to explore other options to access NBC coverage. This is where a live TV streaming package like Sling TV or Fubo can come in handy. (When it comes to both of these options, you should double-check that NBC is available in your area by inputting your zip code before signing up.)

To get USA and NBC on Sling TV, you’ll need to opt for the service’s Sling Blue plan, which costs $40 a month. New users can get half-off their first month, so it’s only a $20 investment up-front. Fubo is another solid option that carries both NBC and USA. The service costs $79.99 a month, but new users are eligible for a one-week free trial.

How to watch the US Open in the UK

US Open coverage airs on Sky Sports in the UK. You can stream all the action through Now TV, where subscription prices and contracts vary. Now offers a single-day pass for £14.99, which is a solid option if you only want to tune in for a specific round.

How to watch the US Open from anywhere

You don’t need to worry about missing out on the action if you’ll be traveling away from home during the tournament. You can easily keep up with your streaming subscriptions via VPN. Short for virtual private networks, VPNs allow you to temporarily change your device’s location so that you can keep up with your usual websites and apps from anywhere. Since the services we’ve highlighted require country-specific forms of payment, this suggestion is best for people who are just hoping to keep up with their existing subscriptions while traveling abroad.

ExpressVPN is our go-to recommendation, since it’s easy to use and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can read all about it in our ExpressVPN review

Note: The use of VPNs is illegal in certain countries, and using VPNs to access region-locked streaming content might constitute a breach of the terms of use for certain services. Insider does not endorse or condone the illegal use of VPNs.
