2014 US Open TV Schedule: CBS, ESPN, Tennis Channel
by Staff | August 25th, 2014, 2:18 pm

For the final time the US Open will be broadcast on three different networks in the USA. In the last year of their contract CBS will broadcast the US Open middle weekend and the men’s and women’s semifinals and finals.

Included in their 100+ hours, ESPN will air matches during the weekdays and into the evening with Tennis Channel on the first set of matches at 11am. The network will take over CBS’s role starting in 2015.

“We are proud of what we have brought to the US Open for now a sixth year in the U.S. – serving fans with more television hours than ever, all TV courts on ESPN3, online coverage highlighted by Courtcast on ESPN.com, and the best tennis team in the business on both sides of the camera – and we look forward to an exciting event where so much is on the line for the game’s brightest stars,” said Jason Bernstein, ESPN senior director, programming and acquisitions. “We take seriously our role in documenting the sport’s year-long narrative, and while saluting the tremendous work CBS has done for 46 years we’re excited about what lies ahead for fans starting next year.”

ESPN’s crew will again feature John and Patrick McEnroe, Chrissie Evert, Pam Shriver, Mike Tirico, Darren Cahill, Brad Gilbert, LZ Granderson, Tom Rinaldi, Chris Fowler, Chris McKendry and Hannah Storm.

Tennis Channel’s talent line-up includes Jim Courier, Martina Navratilova, Bill Macatee, Brett Habert, Justin Gimelstob, Lindsay Davenport, Mary Carillo, Tracy Austin, Paul Annacone, Rennae Stubbs, Mark Knowles and Ian Eagle. The network is set to air 260 hours.

12 Comments for 2014 US Open TV Schedule: CBS, ESPN, Tennis Channel

Humble Rafa Says:

No online streaming at usopen.org. Very disappointing.

Elizabeth Reilly Says:

Each year I look forward to watching the Open. I am not interested in listening to celebrity interviews in the stands. It’s as though ESPN thinks the tennis is just a distraction from these inane interviews. Who cares about Michael Jordan’s twins, his shoes, etc.?
It’s rude for the commentators to talk while play is going on and it used to be a no-no.
Bad form on your part, ESPN. Just shut up and let us watch the play. Comment on the play between points, not during.

lisa horvath Says:

Why am I stuck watching 2 unranked players when Andy murray is playing on Ashe!! I realize there is a young american girl making her first run in the open, but the reality is people want to see big players ESPN!!!! Give us better options!!!!

jane Says:

^ i feel the exact same lisa horvath!! tsn in canada isn’t even showing raonic. i mean, you’d think it’d either be milos raonic or else andy murray. but instead i have to watch this 15 year old. annoying. we need choice, as you say.

Okiegal Says:

Well, at least here in the states I can watch who I want to on ESPN3.com live stream. I watched the sisters play dubs and it was awesome…..as you all said I watched Andy when they switched back and forth, but they totally left it…..who knows why?? Andy got through and I’m glad for that….go Andy!!

jane Says:

okie, that would be awesome but unfortunately we can’t access that in canada. i did find the end of the milos match on tsn2. he played with more aggression towards the end and seemed please about that in the post match intervew.

Okiegal Says:

Yeah, Jane Milos is moving through looking good. Novak is having no problems, nor is Federer.

Regarding the live streams…. was Live score Hunter or From Sports.com not live streaming?? The streams aren’t the best but it beats nothing!! I have watched Rafa many times on those two live streams…..sorry you were not able to watch it, so disappointing. Better luck tomorrow!

jane Says:

okiegal, i haven’t always been successful with sport lemon or adthe.net (the 2 sites i check) because some of the streams require a viewing to sign up for bet365 or whatever, and i’ve been avoiding that due to viruses, legalities, and so on. i look for streams that have no strings attached so to speak, and have had to really dig. the first round match of nole’s i finally found one but it cut out a lot and was very annoying. today i found a deutchland stream for the 3rd set only and it was over in 20 minutes! so i’ve not had much luck with this us open viewing experience thus far. :/

Okiegal Says:


I don’t ever sign up either, for the same reasons you said but I always manage to watch the match……sometimes they are perfect and plain as day and sometimes not, but have always been successful with these two streams. I have watched every Rafa match overseas when they weren’t televised. ESPN3.com carries a lot of them too…..that is the best stream. Yeah, it’s a bummer when they’re not televised!!

Okiegal Says:


I liked Genie’s outfit too….very sharp looking. The other one I liked that looked very feminine was Date Krum….and another player had the same one on too….but I would not want to wear the same gear as another player…..I would be a DIVA!! LOL I’m kidding…a diva I’m not….lol

Margot Says:

Bet 365 is fine, after watching on there my computer remains “ckean.” But u have to make a small deposit.
Last time I watched “sportlemon” I had to spend half an hour doing “housework” on my laptop.
Never again :(

Margot Says:

Oh lol “CLEAN” even!
