LOS ANGELES, March 2023 – Tennis Channel will once again turn into a 24-hour network dedicated to the BNP Paribas Open and Miami Open throughout the month of March, as two of the sport’s most important events begin the annual springtime season. From March 8-April 2, the channel will devote 32 days and more than 550 live and encore hours to these two tennis-calendar heavyweights, surpassed in number of players and days by only the four majors. Coverage from Indian Wells, Calif., and Miami Gardens, Fla., begins on the first day of BNP Paribas Open main-draw play, Wednesday, March 8, at 1 p.m. ET. The lineup will feature 12 consecutive hours of live matches, the first of many in March with extensive, half-day telecast windows followed by all-night encore replays (complete schedule below).
Underway March 8-19, Tennis Channel’s BNP Paribas Open coverage will include more than 115 hours of live matches and another 150-plus hours of encores this year. Most days begin at 1 p.m. ET with one-hour lead-in show Tennis Channel Live at the BNP Paribas Open, ahead of daylong competition starting at 2 p.m. ET. Championship weekend features men’s and women’s doubles finals Saturday, March 18, in a window with the men’s singles semifinals that gets going at 2 p.m. ET. Sunday, March 19, men’s and women’s singles finals close the event at 4 p.m. ET.
The network follows a similar schedule at the Miami Open March 21-April 2. A notable exception is the replacement of a daily lead-in show with the nightly Tennis Channel Live at the Miami Open at the conclusion of each evening’s play. More than 120 live and 170 encore hours are planned from Miami in 2023, with matches beginning at 11 a.m. ET most mornings. The final Saturday, April 1, will feature the women’s singles final at 1 p.m. ET, followed by the men’s doubles championship. Sunday, April 2, will see the reverse, with men’s singles and women’s doubles winners crowned, also set for 1 p.m. ET.
Live BNP Paribas Open and Miami Open competition will also stream on Tennis Channel Plus. The digital subscription service will make all matches from both events available on demand upon their completion.
The network’s second linear television channel, T2, is free on Samsung TV Plus to everyone watching a Samsung television made in 2017 or later. T2 will again show live matches from Indian Wells and Miami that will not be carried on Tennis Channel. Viewers with both channels will be able to channel surf between the two to select the match of their preference, or stay on top of both. Daily coverage take place at the BNP Paribas Open from Wednesday, March 8, through Friday, March 17, beginning at 2 p.m. ET. Miami Open windows also begin at 2 p.m. ET and run from Wednesday, March 22, through Thursday, March 30.
Likewise, live coverage of both events will air on Bally Sports regional sports networks (RSNs) throughout the country this year. The channels will feature coverage at Indian Wells from Wednesday, March 8, to Tuesday, March 14, and from Miami Wednesday, March 22, through Wednesday, March 29.
