From 2020, Amazon will live stream women’s tour in UK and Ireland. As part of the agreement, Amazon users will have access to a minimum of 49 WTA tournaments in the first year of the agreement.
The latest tie-up includes up to 2,000 live WTA matches per year, including the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, the Miami Open, the Madrid Open, the China Open in Beijing, as well as the WTA finals Shenzhen, China.
Alex Green, Amazon Prime Video’s European managing director of sport, said, “As soon as the opportunity to bid for the women’s tennis rights became available, we couldn’t wait to bring the tournament to Prime Video, giving customers the chance to watch the best in both men’s and women’s tennis all in one place for the first time.
We are excited to be at the home of the tennis and will offer viewers the most comprehensive coverage, at no extra cost to their Prime membership.”
