With tennis being one of America’s most adored sports, it’s no surprise that fans crave extensive coverage. Bringing good news to tennis aficionados, Tennis Channel’s specialized T2 channel has broadened its reach.
T2’s Collaboration with Amazon Freevee and Fubo
The Tennis Channel’s dedicated FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) channel, T2, has officially made its mark on both Amazon’s Freevee and Fubo’s renowned sports-centric streaming platform. This collaboration ensures that T2 becomes a staple in Fubo’s primary Pro channel package, accessible to all its users.
“We’re excited to work with Amazon Freevee and Fubo to bring live, daily tennis to millions of tennis fans all year long.” – Lee Schlazer, Senior Vice President, Distribution, Sinclair, and Tennis Channel.
A New Era for T2
Launched in 2022, T2 represents Tennis Channel’s secondary broadcasting network. Unlike its sister channel, T2 broadcasts distinct matches and original content that gives a fresh perspective on the sport. The nature of professional tennis—be it singles, doubles, mixed matches, or the array of courts active throughout the day—renders T2 unparalleled in its capacity as a FAST channel.
The Exceptional Features of T2:
- Daily live coverage from the tennis realm.
- Showcasing games played by iconic figures such as US Open winners Novak Djokovic and Coco Gauff.
- Since its initiation, T2 has broadcasted more free live tennis to the U.S public than ever before in the history of television.
