What is geoblocking?

Due to broadcasting rights and restrictions we are not able to show every tournament 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 these restrictions vary from tournament to tournament, as a general guide:

  • ATP World 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 World Tour 500 tournaments are usually blocked in the country of that tournament – we sometimes call this the host territory or host country.
  • ATP World Tour 250 tournaments are also usually blocked in the country of that tournament plus others in some instances.

Check out the tournament calendar for a monthly list of tournaments that you can watch, or see the full list of geoblocking restrictions for 2017 or 2018.
