Sony Pictures Network (SPN) has announced that its over-the-top digital platform Sony LIV will livestream the Australian Open, the international tennis tournament, for free. The live matches will be available for viewing from January 18-31, on the SonyLiv Android and iOS Mobile app, as well as the Sony LIV website.
The announcement comes close on the heels of the launch of SPN's sports channel Sony ESPN. The Australian Open had, in fact, marked the kickstart of this collaboration between the two companies.
An official statement adds that for those who miss the matches, a video-on-demand, which will capture key highlights and special moments of every match along with interviews and press conferences, will be available on the very same day.
