The oldest tennis tournament in the world is in full swing. Go and watch Wimbledon live on your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV with these apps.
Watch Wimbledon live from the Netherlands and Belgium
The classic among tennis tournaments is Wimbledon. From Monday, July 1 to Sunday, July 14, 2019, you can watch the matches again, which can also be followed live. If you want to watch live Wimbledon on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV , you can do so through these apps that are complementary to our general list of tennis apps.
The official Wimbledon app shows you live (parts of) games, has radio channels that report live about the games and offers videos to watch back. The app is also good with live scores from the fields and receives the data directly from IBM, which this year also provides the technology on the fields themselves. If a ball is out, then it is immediately visible.
You also see the program, final results and draws. Furthermore, the app contains news, live blogs, and player profiles. You can design the app on the iPhone and iPad for your own favorite tennis players. There is also support for the Apple TV, so you can watch the tournament live with multiple people. There was a separate app for the Apple TV, but that functionality is now built into the normal app. The app also comes in handy if you are going to visit Wimbledon in person because you will get all kinds of exclusive functions.
Eurosport has the broadcasting rights for Wimbledon. You can watch via Eurosport 1, but because the Tour de France is also being broadcast at the same time, you are better off via the Eurosport Player payment service. With that, you watch 15 simultaneously played matches. Eurosport Player can be used on the iPhone, iPad, MacBook and other smartphones, tablets and laptops. You can also stream with AirPlay and Chromecast to your television, but there is also just an Apple TV app. A monthly subscription costs around seven euros per month and on an annual basis it costs four euros. Eurosport 1 broadcasts daily, from 12:30 pm to 10:30 pm, the matches that you can watch via various TV providers. With the regular Eurosport app you also follow the latest news.
Eurosport also has exclusive broadcasting rights for Wimbledon in Belgium. For Wimbledon you have to be on the main channel, so you can watch the tennis tournament with almost all Belgian TV providers in the basic package.
You can also watch the Wimbledon matches at Ziggo Sport, both on Ziggo and on the pay channel Ziggo Sport Total. Ziggo does have the second choice, so watch the best matches at Eurosport. At Ziggo Sport, competitions and images are broadcast throughout the day from Wimbledon. There is also a program every evening at 10 p.m. with summaries, analyzes and a review of all the highlights, called Wimbledon Today. To watch Ziggo Sport Totaal you can use the special app or the app from your TV provider. Subscribers to cable company Ziggo can watch cheaper through Ziggo Sports Channel 14 because this is included in the digital basic package for all Ziggo customers.
The NOS has a so-called sub-license for Wimbledon, which means that they can only broadcast the semi-finals (men) and the finals (men and women) live. With the app you will of course stay up to date with all the news about Wimbledon. You can also watch videos and there are interviews with tennis players and tennis players. They also keep a live blog.
BBC One and Two via the app from your TV provider
The British broadcaster BBC broadcasts Wimbledon. The most important BBC channels are included in the digital basic package with many Dutch TV providers, often even in HD quality. Use the app from your TV provider (such as Ziggo Go or similar), preferably one that you can also stream to your Apple TV via AirPlay. If you have T-Mobile at home, then you are lucky. T-Mobile is the only TV provider with an Apple TV app, so you can easily watch through your television. With other providers, you still have to arrange this via AirPlay.
If you cannot watch because you are at work, for example, you can follow Wimbledon on NPO Radio 1. In NOS Radio Tour de France from 14:00 in the afternoon there is also regular attention for Wimbledon and in the evening you can you listen to Along the Line and Surrounded. Can be listened to via most radio apps for iPhone and iPad, or via the official NPO Radio 1 app.
