In this article, we will show you How to Watch Live US Open on FireStick. We will also provide instructions to watch US Open in other countries or Outside the US.
The United States Open Tennis Championship, mostly known as the US Open, is the final Grand Slam Tennis tournament of a season. Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon are the first three major tournaments, which are then followed by the US Open.
Although tennis isn’t the most popular sports in the United States, the 2019 US Open Grand Slam had an average viewership of 1.28 million across ESPN and ESPN 2. The healthy growth in the US Open viewership is a result of various TV Everywhere services and over-the-top live TV providers, which lets tennis fans watch matches online with and without a pay-cable or satellite TV subscription.
Amazon’s Fire TV is one of the most popular streaming platform worldwide, which is why many of you search for ways to stream various sports events online. If you are looking forward to watching the US Open on Firestick, then you can follow this guide for a few solutions.

Watch US Open on Firestick with ESPN App
Since ESPN is the official broadcaster of US Open Tennis in the United States, you can log in to the ESPN for Fire TV app with your TV provider account, assuming that you do have a cable or satellite TV subscription.
Although the ESPN for Fire TV app lets users log in with an ESPN+ subscription, you only get outer court coverage with it. However, you still get access to VOD broadcasts of US Open Tennis when logged in with a TV provider account.
With the ESPN for Fire TV app, you also get access to the ESPN 3 channel, which will supposedly broadcast the Mixed Doubles Final and select qualifying matches. Other than that, it offers news and highlights from the ESPNews channel.
Watch US Open on Firestick with Online Live TV Services
A few over-the-top live TV providers in the United States offer ESPN and ESPN 2 channels, and they are officially compatible with Fire TV devices. You can get a subscription from a respective live TV provider to watch US Open on Firestick. You can also log in to the ESPN for Fire TV app with your OTT live TV provider account to stream the ESPN 3 coverage of US Open.
YouTube TV is undoubtedly the best live TV streaming service in the United States, solely for its 70+ premium channel lineup at an unbeatable $49.99 monthly subscription.
You do get a plethora of news and sports channels with YouTube TV, which does include ESPN and ESPN 2. For ESPN 3 coverage, you can sign in to the official ESPN app with your YouTube TV account.
Recording US Open matches on schedule is also possible on YouTube TV, thanks to its cloud DVR feature. It is also the only premium live TV service that offers unlimited cloud storage for user recordings and stores them for up to nine months.
YouTube TV offers live TV streaming on three devices at the same time. So, you can share your membership with two additional accounts.
If you are on a constrained budget, then Sling is the way to go for watching US Open live on Firestick. It offers two entry-level monthly plans at $30, each having its unique lineup of channels.
The $30 monthly Sling Orange plan is the ideal plan you are looking for. It offers three ESPN channels, which are ESPN, ESPN 2, and ESPN 3. You get full US Open Tennis coverage with Sling, considering that you can use your Sling account to authenticate WatchESPN or the official ESPN app.
The Sling Orange plan limits users from streaming Sling on more than one device at a time. However, you can pay an additional $15 for the Sling Orange + Blue plan to raise the limit to four devices. You also get a broader coverage of sports and entertainment channels. Note that both of the plans include ten hours of cloud DVR space, but you can upgrade it to 50 hours with the Cloud DVR Plus ($5/mo) Sling Extra add-on.
At the time of this writing, Sling is also offering a $10 discount on the first month for new subscribers. You can effectively purchase the Sling Orange plan for $20 and enjoy US Open coverage on a budget.
Streaming giant Hulu offers a balanced lineup of 65+ premium entertainment, sports, and news channels with its Hulu + Live TV ($54.99/month) subscription.

ESPN 3 is also accessible via the ESPN for Fire TV app.
You can record US Open matches for up to 50 hours with Hulu’s cloud DVR functionality. It doesn’t allow simultaneous streaming on more than two devices, but you can add the optional Enhanced Cloud DVR + Unlimited Screens ($14.99+) add-on bundle to your Hulu + Live TV subscription for additional perks. You get not only 500 hours of cloud DVR space but also live TV streaming on unlimited devices connected to the same network (up to three devices on separate networks).
