Watch Wimbledon Online — Free Live Streams, Match Replays, Highlights, & MoreBy Jeremy Evans / July 14, 2017 / Tags: Live Stream, Stream Sports
Here are all the ways to watch Wimbledon online free, from any location, for the 2017 Championships from England.
Wimbledon 2017 is upon us! As the year’s only grass-court grand slam tennis tournament, Wimbledon is always a high-energy — and classy — event packed with one entertaining match after another. The Championships, Wimbledon 2017 takes place July 3 through July 16.
If you want to watch Wimbledon online this year, you have a few different options. Here’s how to live stream Wimbledon for free, without cable, from any region or country.
Watch Wimbledon Online Free On BBC
The UK’s BBC network is covering Wimbledon across the pond, and streaming all the matches live online. Go here to live stream Wimbledon free on BBC.
There’s a catch though. If you’re outside the UK, you’ll see a message that the BBC live stream isn’t available in your area. So you’ll need to bypass the geo-blocker to get free access to the live stream.
To get around the geo-restriction, you just need to use a handy tool called ExpressVPN to route your internet connection via the UK. Here’s what to do:
1) Get a 30-day free trial of ExpressVPN (and remind yourself to cancel and get a refund when Wimbledon is over).
2) Download the ExpressVPN app for the device(s) you want to use to watch Wimbledon and connect to a server in the UK.
3) Start watching the free Wimbledon live stream on BBC iPlayer!
Watch Wimbledon Live Online With ESPN (If You Have Cable)
ESPN is covering Wimbledon in the US and several other countries. If you have a TV subscription that includes ESPN, you can also live stream Wimbledon on WatchESPN. You can watch on a computer or download the app for iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon TV, and more.
Watch The Wimbledon Live Stream Free, Without Cable On YouTube TV
YouTube TV, the new live TV streaming service from YouTube, includes ESPN. That means you can use YouTube TV to watch Wimbledon online this year. You can get a 30-day free trial of YouTube TV.
BUT — unfortunately YouTube TV is currently only available in a couple of major US cities (Chicago, LA, New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco). If you’re not in one of those cities, see how to get YouTube TV in any location so you can sign up for a free trial and live stream Wimbledon from first ball to last.
Watch Wimbledon Online Free On Wimbledon.com (No Continuous Live Matches)
You can watch Wimbledon online free on the official Wimbledon website — but this stream features live footage from around the grounds, not continuous live matches. Go here to watch the free Wimbledon live stream.
Depending on where you’re located, you may 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. See how to unblock live sports on location-restricted sites. (I used ExpressVPN connected to an East London server to get access from the US.)
Note that London, England, where Wimbledon is held, 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.
One More Way To Live Stream Wimbledon Free
There’s yet another way to live stream Wimbledon for free — but stay away from those scummy “free live sports!!!” sites. There’s a better way.
You can use Kodi to watch Wimbledon 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 stay private and 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 or Kodi live TV channels. If you already use it and need help finding quality sources to stream live sports on Kodi, see our list of the best Kodi add-ons.
How To Bypass Location Restrictions On Any Wimbledon 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.
