Looking to watch a live stream of all the 2017 US Open tennis tournament? There are a couple of different ways to do so, even if you don’t have a cable subscription.

In the United States, coverage will be daily on ESPN and ESPN 2. You can find a complete schedule right here.

Certain matches will be streamed via ESPN3, but if you’re looking to watch the actual ESPN or ESPN 2 broadcasts but have cut the cable cord, you can watch via over-the-top streaming services, which allow you to watch a bundle of channels on your computer, phone or other device for a monthly fee.

And with the steady rise of these services, cable-cutters have plenty of different options to choose from: Sling TV is my personal recommendation due to its cheap price point, but services such as DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue also offer different pros and cons. And if you want to test them out, all of them have a free trial.

While DirecTV Now’s cheapest package, “Live a Little”, comes in at $35 per month, the service does have some important advantages.

It has a larger channel package, as even its smallest provides access to a cable-like package of 60 channels. Second, and they are offering a Roku Premiere Streaming Media Player ($69.95 value) if you prepay two months.

Most Streams At Once: PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue is somewhere in the middle on the price vs. quantity of channels spectrum. Its cheapest package is “Access,” which, at $39.99, is more expensive than Sling TV and DirecTV Now but doesn’t have as many channels as DirecTV Now.

Still, it does have some compelling advantages, as DVR is included and users can watch on five separate devices at once, which is more than any other streaming device.

Total Channels Included: 40-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list here

Price: $39.99
