The deal contains the men's and women's championships, doubles, mixed doubles, junior, and wheelchair competitions.

The US Open has signed a new five-year broadcast agreement with the leading sports broadcasting network, Sky Sports. The deal is all set to commence with the 2023 edition of the Grand Slam event.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) negotiated the agreement as the tournament returns to the channel for viewers in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The programming debuts with the 2023 US Open at Flushing Meadows on August 28, with Sky Sports retaining exclusive broadcast rights through the 2027 event.

Jonathan Licht, Sky Sports Managing Director, said, “We are very excited to partner with the USTA once again to deliver the US Open, one of the greatest Grand Slam tennis tournaments in the world. We have had a great history with the USTA and remember Andy Murray’s 2012 US Open win as one of the great moments on Sky Sports. This is another huge sporting event for our viewers, and we look forward to bringing tennis fans more of what they love and welcoming in new fans to the sport.”

The agreement contains the men’s and women’s championships, as well as the doubles, mixed doubles, junior, and wheelchair competitions.

Sky Sports will have coverage of all individual court feeds and will broadcast at least 135 hours of the two-week competition. Extensive coverage will also offer content for both current and new tennis enthusiasts throughout Sky Sports’ linear, digital, and social channels.
