Watch The 2017 French Open Online — Free Live Streams, Match Replays, Highlights, & More — Men’s Final TodayBy Jeremy Evans / June 11, 2017 / Tags: Live Stream, Stream Sports
Here are all the ways to watch the 2017 French Open tennis tournament online for free, from any location.
The 2017 French Open tennis tournament, aka Roland Garros, is now upon us, live from Paris, France. As the year’s second grand slam tennis tournament, and the only slam played on clay, the French is always a high-energy event packed with one entertaining match after another.
The tournament is from May 28 – June 11. If you want to live stream the French Open this year, you have a bunch of different options. Here’s how to watch the French Open online for free, without cable, and from any region or country.
Live Stream The French Open Free Without Cable
You can watch the 2017 French Open free online on ITV1 and ITV2 from the UK. These channels will live stream Roland Garros from start to finish, and are totally free to watch — no cable or TV login required. Go here to live stream the French Open for free on ITV Player.
If you’re not in the UK, you’ll see a message saying the stream isn’t available in your area. You can still get access, though. You just need to bypass the geo-blocks so you can watch the French Open free online, from any location. See the simple, step-by-step workaround here. (Tip: I’m using ExpressVPN connected to a Paris server to get access from the US.)
Note that Paris is 6 hours ahead of EST. So if you miss out on the live action, you can watch video highlights from each day’s matches on RolandGarros.com. ITV Player will also have video replays and highlights.
Live Stream 2017 French Open Without Cable On YouTube TV
YouTube TV is a new live TV streaming service from YouTube. YouTube TV includes NBC Sports, which is covering the tournament, so you can use it to live stream the entire French Open tennis tournament this year.
The downside is that YouTube TV is only available in a couple of cities. But there is an easy way to get it in any location, so you can sign up for a 30-day free trial and live stream French Open tennis for free. See how to get YouTube TV in any location.

Watch 2017 French Open On Kodi For Free, Plus Elsewhere Around The Web
There are a couple other ways to live stream Roland Garros for free. First, you can watch the French Open free online from various sources in our live sports streams section.
You can also use Kodi to watch French Open tennis live online for free (plus lots of other stuff). What is Kodi? Briefly, it’s a free media player application you can use to stream live sports and other content from the internet.
One note — whether Kodi is legal is an issue of debate. Yes, the networks frown upon watching their content for free. Hey, I’m not here to judge. But it is highly recommended you use a VPN with Kodi to hide your identity and stay secure.
To see what you can watch on Kodi, and how to get started, check out our beginner’s guide on how to use Kodi. If you already use it and need help finding quality sources to live stream the French Open on Kodi, see our list of the best Kodi add-ons (try cCloud, UK Turks Playlist, and SportsDevil for live coverage from Roland Garros), or check out our guide to Kodi live TV.
How To Bypass Location Restrictions On Any French Open Live Stream
Depending on what country you’re in, you might run into location restrictions when you try to watch a live stream. This means that the content provider has blocked viewers in your area from watching their content.
To bypass geographical restrictions, you need to “trick” the site into “thinking” you’re in an approved region. Follow this step-by-step tutorial to see exactly how to do it.
Watch the French Open Live Online On NBC Sports (If You Have Cable)
NBC Sports is covering Roland-Garros in the US. NBCSN is also live streaming its coverage on its website. Go here to watch NBC’s French Open live stream, as well as match replays. Note that you will need to log in with a TV provider to get access.
If you have a TV subscription that includes NBC Sports, you can also live stream the French Open on the NBC Sports app. You can watch on a computer or download the app for iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon TV, and more.
The Tennis Channel is also live streaming 2017 French Open on its website. Again, a TV login or subscription is required.
That should have you covered to stream all the action from Paris, no matter your location or pay-TV situation. Enjoy the tournament.
