Tennis Channel Continues International Expansion in United Kingdom, India
Tennis Channel’s international expansion continues with the launch of its Tennis Channel subscription streaming service in the U.K. on Thursday, Aug. 19, and the introduction of the Tennis Channel International ad-supported streaming channel on Samsung TV Plus in India Wednesday, Aug. 25. Tennis Channel launched its direct-to-consumer streaming platform in May 2020, which is also available in Austria, Germany, Greece, and Switzerland.
Last year, Tennis Channel International debuted a new 24-hour streamed programming channel, Tennis Channel Deutschland, the first in Germany devoted exclusively to tennis. Programming also includes original Tennis Channel series, documentaries, features, instruction, highlights, and select matches on-demand. Tennis Channel International will also cover live competition from Tennis Bundesliga, Germany’s top team tennis league. Archived content will feature hundreds of hours of programming from numerous providers, including founding partners the International Tennis Federation (ITF), and German Tennis Federation (Deutscher Tennis Bund – DTB), and will be available on-demand. Tennis Channel and the ITF are developing an ITF channel for the platform as well.
Users will also be able to follow every professional tennis match in the world through Sportradar’s MatchCast, a channel with never-before-seen dynamic graphics and more tennis statistics and data than anything currently available in the sport.
