MUMBAI: Foraying into the New Year, SonyLIV, India’s first premium video-on-demand platform, brings a visual treat for all its tennis aficionados with the decade’s first major sporting event – Australian Open 2020. Upping its ante in sports streaming, the platform, this year, will exclusively showcase live matches from across all 16 courts starting January 20 for its subscribers. With the big three Djokovic, Nadal and Federer headlining the tournament along with youngsters like Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev, all the action will go live across 16 courts from Melbourne only on SonyLIV for the first time ever.

From the largest gamut of legendary players to some high- octane nail biting matches to a record prize money of USD 49.1 MN, there are enough and more reasons to binge onto Australian Open 2020. Not only is Novak Djokovic looking to defend his title in men’s singles, stakes are high for Serena Williams as well who bids for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title, this time. But all eyes would be on the epic clash of titles between the greats – Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. While the former will look to continue his record beyond 20 grand slams, Nadal will go all out to come at par with the legend with 19 titles. Who will make the cut? 

By building up further on live sports streaming, SonyLIV pushes the envelope in consumer delight by offering them the best from the tournament at one go. With 16 simultaneous feeds on the platform, subscribers will stand witness to all the action, beyond the central courts and stay updated on their favourite players on the go. 

Home to the biggest sporting tournaments, SonyLIV has a packed calendar for fans ahead with the 16th edition of Euro 2020. Starting June 12, 20 teams will battle it out for a month across 12 cities in UEFA nations for the ultimate title. Next up is the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League with 79 teams from 54 UEFA member associations participating in the big clash. Also, in line is Olympics 2020 kicking off in Tokyo on 24 July with over 60 participants from India across 6 sports.
