Sorry, subtitles and closed captions will not be available on the app or website.

The highlights section brings you exclusive curated videos of the Tennis including the best moments of the day's action, coverage and player profiles.
What are the orange coloured numbers following player names?
These are the players' seed numbers for the tournament. The player rankings are available in the player profile section of the 7TENNIS app.

The video/audio quality on the 7TENNIS app is not optimal, what can I do about this?
The app uses adaptive streaming technology to automatically adjust the quality of your streaming to suit your internet speed. For an optimal streaming experience we recommend a minimum internet data speed of at least 3Mbps or above. 

To check the speed of your internet, please visit speedtest.net. This site allows you to see your download and upload speeds; the higher the number, the better the speed. If the issues are consistent, it may be worth contacting your internet service provider. Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream: 
 
0.8 Megabits per second - Minimum required broadband connection speed
3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality 

If you continue to experience technical issues, please contact our friendly Customer Support centre via email, they will be happy to answer queries and help you resolve any issues at support.7tennis.com.au/contact.

Why is my video constantly buffering (starting/stopping)?
The app uses adaptive streaming technology to automatically adjust the quality of your streaming to suit your internet speed and the capability of your device. For an optimal streaming experience we recommend a minimum internet data speed of at least 3Mbps or above. To check your internet speed, please visit speedtest.net. This site allows you to see your download and upload speeds; the higher the number, the better the speed. If the issues are consistent, it may be worth contacting your internet service provider. This issue can occur for several reasons. These reasons include:
  • Low bandwidth connection
  • Other users on your network sharing the internet connection
  • Poor internet connection at the time of viewing the video. On occasions internet connections can drop out or are overloaded due to high internet traffic. Speak with your ISP if you notice any ongoing issues.
  • Wireless internet connections can get interrupted resulting in playback issues (speak with your ISP if you notice any ongoing issues).
If you continue to experience technical issues, please contact our friendly Customer Support centre via email, they will be happy to answer queries and help you resolve any issues at support.7Tennis.com.au/contact
Why is the stream on my device delayed when compared to my TV?
