The Tennis Channel global footprint took a major step on Wednesday with the launch of the first 24/7 dedicated tennis network in India. The channel will be available on Samsung TV Plus and will provide a generous selection of live tennis in addition to original series, instruction, classic matches and documentary content.

Tennis Channel launched its direct-to-consumer streaming platform in May of 2020, which is currently available in Austria, Germany, Greece, UK and Switzerland.

“I’ve dedicated my entire life to the sport of tennis which is why I’m ecstatic about Tennis Channel coming to India, said the highly regarded Vijay Amritraj. "This will give fans their first glimpse of dedicated tennis coverage 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. I’m thrilled to partner with Tennis Channel in bringing this product to life for the India market.”

Tennis Channel host and son of Vijay, Prakash Amritraj, had this to say:

“Having played Davis Cup for India, I know how dedicated the people are to the sport I love so dearly. I’ve been a part of the Tennis Channel family for over five years and I could not be more pumped that we will be India’s new home for 24/7 tennis content.

"Working with Tennis Channel to deliver unparalleled access, vision and resources to the country of my roots means so very much to me.”
