What is geoblocking?
Due to broadcasting rights and restrictions there are some tournaments we are unable to show on Tennis TV in every country around the world.
These restrictions – we call them geoblocks and others call them blackouts – are decided and governed by the tournaments, and depend on the agreements that they have with broadcasters around the world.
While there are only a few restrictions which vary from tournament to tournament, here is a general guide:
- ATP Tour Masters 1000 tournaments, the Nitto ATP Finals and the Next Gen ATP Finals have no rights restrictions and are available to watch live or on demand in every country around the world.
- ATP Tour 500 tournaments are sometimes blocked in the country of that tournament – we call this the host territory or host country.
- ATP Tour 250 tournaments are generally available to watch live or on demand in every country around the world, although in some instances limited geo-blocks will apply.
