Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina will be out to defend their titles on the hallowed grass courts of the All England Club when the world’s best players line up for two weeks of top-tier tennis at Wimbledon 2023.
The third grand slam of the year could see a changing of the guard with bright young stars such as 20-year-old world No.1 Carlos Alcaraz and Italian Jannik Sinner hoping to unseat Djokovic in the men’s tournament.
Poland’s Iga Świątek and Belarusian star Aryna Sabalenka, meanwhile, are both heavily backed to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish – the women’s tournament trophy – for the first time.
Below we will outline the best live tv streaming services to use to watch Wimbledon live wherever you are in the world.
Wimbledon 2023: Where and when is it?

How to watch Wimbledon 2023 online from anywhere using a VPN
If you’re unable to watch Wimbledon locally, you may need another way to watch the world’s best grass-court tennis players – that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to prevent your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a good idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and you will add an extra layer of privacy to your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to access the game. Most VPNs, like ours Editor’s Choice, ExpressVPNmakes it really easy to do this.
It’s legal to use a VPN to watch or stream sports in all countries where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. Make sure your VPN is set up properly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips to stream Wimbledon 2023 using a VPN
- With four variables at play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN – your experience and success when streaming tennis action live can vary.
- If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using “search by city or country”.
- If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log in to your streaming services subscription account and ensure that the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address registered to your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you use (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network will now appear in the correct display location.
- All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main page to quickly install the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you will be asked to confirm a numeric code or click on a link sent to your email address registered with your smart- television. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help as both devices appear to be in the right location.
- And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so make sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We usually recommend Brave.
