Amazon takes APT Tennis rights from Sky
Tennis fans will now need an Amazon Prime subscription for full access to top flight men’s tennis.
Internet giant Amazon has snapped the rights to the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and Masters 500 events from around the world, starting from 2019.
The current broadcasting deal is with Sky.
The end of year ATP World Tour Event in London, currently shown free-to-air on the BBC, is also at risk of moving to Amazon Prime Video, with the ATP currently in the process of bundling various tournaments into new, single broadcast rights packages. Both BBC and Sky rights deals with the ATP end in December 2018.
Rights to the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open are unaffected by Amazon’s move and will continue to be offered by traditional broadcasters.
