Just to save you some time, we selected some broadcasters for you that will show the games:
France Francetvsport , EuroSport
Europe Eurosport, iTV (UK), RTBF (Belgium), NOS (Netherlands), Setanta Sports (Ireland), YLE (Finland), PTPC (Serbia), SRG SSR (Switzerland)
America NBC Sports (USA), Tennis Channel (USA), TSN (Canada), Band Sports (Brazil), ESPN (USA)
Some of the broadcasters will require a paid subscription to watch the games, for example Fox Sports and ESPN. Luckily, a few of them are totally free, for example iTV and a few of the others. The only caveat is that due to licensing rights, you can only watch the games if you’re currently located in the broadcaster’s country. However, if you’re connecting to one of ChillGlobal's servers you’ll be able to virtually reside in that country and live stream Roland Garros no matter where you are!
How to Watch Roland Garros Live from Wherever your Are!
If you’re abroad and you're dying to watch the games, all you need to do is install the ChillGlobal smart plugin and select the correct country. That way, you get a new local IP address, and you can use your desired broadcaster’s services without any geographical restrictions. For example, if you’re currently in the US and want to stream from a French channel, connect to our VPN server in France. You can then use the internet just as if you were in France to stream from Eurosport or francetvsport!
Now that you know all of the above, it’s time to put it into practice! Before anything, register for the ChillGlobal free trial right here. The smart-plugin for your Firefox web browser (very soon also available for Chrome!) is a zero space invader, downloaded and installed in 20 seconds (also for non-IT nerds) AND with a monthly free trial of 20 hours. No need for Credit Card details, just your enter email address and you are ready for take-off. Once this is done, you can unlock the online content from all of our 15 participating countries, regardless of your own location. Any kind of paid sports channel that you subscribed to, will also be available from abroad, because you will be able to connect and access your account no matter where you are! Your IP address is changed; you are private and rerouted by proxies through our super-fast ChillGlobal servers that we have in place in every participating country: FREEDOM!
If you haven’t downloaded ChillGlobal yet, all you have to do is register.
