SBS secures US Open finals

SBS today announced that it has secured free-to-air broadcast rights for the US Open, from the quarter finals stage.

In a partnership with ESPN, coverage will commence in early September, on SBS, SBS HD and streamed live online.

SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp said: “SBS has a proud heritage in bringing the best of international sport to Australian fans. The US Open is one of the iconic events on the sports calendar, and this deal sees the climax of the year’s final Grand Slam returning live and free to all Australians.”

SBS coverage will include Live coverage of Quarter-Finals, Semi-finals and Finals from September 6th.


  1. SBS proving to be the little Network that can. Picking up sports rights here and there. Yes, simulcasting quite a few but I think that’s going to be the way sports rights work going forward. Outside of netball and cricket I can’t think of a sport that is only FTA these days- and they both have online platforms to view them.
    Congrats SBS, keep up the good work!
