Where to watch the 2021 Wimbledon Championships
You can watch most of the remaining 2021 Wimbledon Championship matches on ESPN. You can access the channel via cable/satellite and various live TV streaming services, including Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, Fubo TV, and AT&T TV.
In addition to the ESPN broadcasts, select matches will also be streamed via the ESPN+ and ESPN3 streaming services. With that said, ESPN+ will not carry live coverage of the women’s singles and doubles finals, the men’s singles and doubles finals, or the mixed doubles finals on July 10 and 11. All other finals will air on ESPN+.
Here’s a full breakdown of live TV streaming services with access to Wimbledon matches on ESPN.
The cheapest way to stream Wimbledon matches on ESPN is through Sling TV. Sling Orange ($35/month) offers live access to ESPN as well as ESPN2 and ESPN3. While Sling Blue ($35/month) includes access to other sports on Fox and FS1 channels, it does not have access to ESPN networks.
For a limited time, you can get your first month of Sling Orange for just $10. If you keep you plan after your first month is up, the price will go up to the regular $35 monthly rate.
You can also catch Wimbledon with YouTube TV. The live TV streaming service offers both ESPN and ESPN2 along with other sports channels including FS1, CBS Sports Network, the MLB Network, the NFL Network, and NBA TV. YouTube TV costs $55/month for your first three months, and then $65 a month after.
Hulu + Live TV
For $65 a month, you can get a Hulu + Live TV plan that includes Wimbledon matches via ESPN. The service also features other sports networks like CBS Sports Network and NBC Sports Network, as well as access to Hulu’s on-demand library of shows and movies. You can also bundle the live TV service with Disney Plus and ESPN+ for $73 a month.
Another option to watch Wimbledon is with Fubo TV. The Starter Plan offers around 115 channels, including ESPN and ESPN2, for $65 a month. New subscribers can get a seven-day free trial.
The streaming service’s Elite Plan ($80/month) also includes access to a number of additional sports networks including FS1, NBCSN, NFL Network, BeinSports, CBS Sports Network, and more.
AT&T TV also carries Wimbledon on its live TV streaming service via ESPN. The cheapest plan starts at $70, however, so we don’t recommend this as the best option for people who are primarily looking for an affordable way to watch the tournament.
