For the tennis fanatics out there, the Tennis Channel Everywhere app allows you to get your tennis fix wherever you can connect your iOS device to the internet. If you’re at a company picnic and you don’t want to miss the Wimbledon final the Tennis Channel Everywhere for iPhone app may be the answer you’re looking for.
This app is your home for all things tennis. Subscribe to Tennis Channel Plus and watch live tennis matches as well as thousands of on-demand matches. Are you a Tennis Channel subscriber? Authenticate and watch the network streamed live.
One caveat though, you do have to be a tennis channel subscriber to use this app. If you are then it’s free. Check out our best tennis apps list for more great options.
For any sports app these days, there is a certain level of expectation. The user expects an app to add to the overall experience of their favorite sport.
Tennis Channel everywhere for iPhone will unlock access to over 650 live matches not available on Tennis Channel including the French Open mosaic, ATP and WTA tours, Davis Cup matches, Fed Cup matches, plus thousands of hours of on-demand programming. Access to watch live tennis streaming of Tennis Channel is determined by your TV provider.
This is certainly a sharp looking app. There is a lot of content – some of it’s free if you have a subscription to the Tennis Channel on one of the major cable providers, but some of it does require an extra subscription to TC Plus. The actual app itself does not require a lot of space on your iOS device at 7.3MB.
When you open up the app you’ll be asked to choose your cable subscriber to authenticate your subscription, but you only have to do this the first time you use the app. Once you’ve got that out of the way you can start using the app. There are four main sections: Featured, TC, TC Plus, and On Demand. The featured section includes highlights and interesting news items. It’s a nice little addition to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the tennis world.
TC is the heart of the app - from here you can access any programing that’s been shown on the regular channel in the last 24 hours, so you don’t have to worry if you missed something you can always catch up with the app. A subscription to TC Plus will give you access to extra live content, including matches that wouldn’t otherwise be available. The on demand feature also requires a subscription to TC Plus.
What this app lacks is access to a strong schedule, player bios and statistics. This is pretty disappointing in a sports app. These little extras have come to be expected in a sports app so it’s a glaring omission. This app is little more than an app version of the television channel with some extra live content.
Bonus live events and on demand service are available with a subscription to TC Plus
Schedule is limited
Not too many extra features
If all you’re looking for is access to the Tennis Channel’s content on your iOS device then you’ll be happy with this app. You will even gain access to live matches that you won’t find anywhere else as well as on demand content.
