How to Watch the ATP World Tour Finals Online: Quick Guide
- Select one of the ATP World Tour streaming options listed below.
- If the streaming service isn’t available where you are, you’ll need to sign up to a Virtual Private Network (VPN). My top recommendation for streaming any sports event online is ExpressVPN.
- Download and install the VPN client on your computer or streaming device.
- Connect to a VPN server in a location where streaming is allowed. Those using Amazon Prime Video or Sling TV need a US server, while streaming BBC iPlayer requires a UK server.
- Once connected, open up the streaming option you selected in step #1. Sign up to the stream and install any required software.
- Keep your VPN connected and sign in to the streaming service. Once that’s done, you’re all set to start watching the ATP World Tour Finals!
Note: Stay connected to the VPN while streaming the ATP World Tour Finals to avoid any playback issues.
ATP World Tour Finals: Streaming Options
Amazon Prime Video – Seven-day Free Trial!
The best way for anyone to watch the finals is to sign up to Amazon Prime Video and stream the whole tournament from anywhere. Amazon Prime Video even offers a seven-day free trial. Thus you can stream the full ATP World Tour Finals and simply cancel your membership to avoid paying anything!
The one catch with Amazon Prime Video is that it is not available outside of the US. Those wanting to watch Amazon Prime Video outside of the US will need to use a VPN to access the live stream. Simply follow my step-by-step instructions above to see how you can unblock the service and watch the ATP World Tour Finals for free!
Sling TV – Seven-day Free Trial!
Sling TV is a popular cord-cutting service that gives access to ESPN and a ton of other sports channels. With ESPN broadcasting this year’s finals, Sling TV is an excellent way to catch all the action online. There’s even a seven-day free trial.
Unfortunately, Sling TV is similar to Amazon Prime Video in that the service is only available to US residents. Follow my instructions above to see how you can unblock Sling TV from outside the US!
BBC iPlayer – Free in the UK!
Another excellent way to watch the ATP World Tour Finals online is through BBC iPlayer, the online streaming arm of the BBC. The BBC will have streaming rights for the tournament and will be showing each match on iPlayer.
The only requirements for watching iPlayer online are a connection from somewhere in the UK and a valid UK postcode. Follow my instructions above to access iPlayer and use this random UK postcode generator to start watching!
How to Watch the 2017 ATP World Tour Finals: Free Streams
Don’t want to spend your money on watching the matches online? You can find streams of each individual match posted on the r/Tennis Streams subreddit. Streams are usually available one hour before matches are set to begin.
While streaming tennis online for free sounds nice on paper, getting caught using these illegal streams isn’t. Add in the inevitable advertisements, streaming issues, and potential malware and it’s easy to see the downsides to these “free streams.” Using a VPN while you stream gives you increased protection against your Internet Service Provider (ISP) tracking your activity; it helps secure your privacy.
