The Australian Open live coverage can be seen in quite a few countries around the world, including and I cannot begin to explain how happy 🙂 this makes me, I am watching the 2012 Australian Open tennis in Singapore live right now! I am sorry, but IF you are in Australia, Europe, Japan, the United Kingdom and New Zealand then this Australian Open LIVE content is not available to you due to the TV rights restrictions.

How YOU can watch the 2012 Australian Open LIVE and free of charge:
OnCourt Advantage is continually trying to do things better every day and in every way.
Step 1: Visit the Official Australian Open website at AustralianOpen.com. This will take you to the homepage.
Step 2: Look across the very top of the page from left to right and right under where you see a white “search >” box there is a “Video & Radio” heading. Place your mouse on top of that “Video & Radio” heading, which is a page in the navigation bar on that website.
Step 3: When you do that a drop down menu from the Video & Radio page will open. The only heading in the first column as you read from left to right is “> Live” and you need to click on this “>Live” heading.
Step 4: When you do that the Australian Open TV (AO TV) page will open. Now please don’t press the play video button just yet or you will REALLY miss out on the true awesomeness of this AO TV! From this page and under the screen shot of Rod Laver Arena (RLA) i.e. the centre court, you can see the current day’s schedule of play for RLA. To select the matches that you want to watch and from any one of the 7 courts that are being screened live, you need to click on the arrow head facing to the right of your screen. This arrow can be found at the right hand side of the schedule of play on RLA.
Step 5: Each time you click this arrow you will be taken to the schedule of play for the next court and a screen shot of that particular court, which is where you click the play button, if that is the court and match you want to watch. The order of the courts from 1 to 7 are RLA, Hisense Arena, Margaret Court Arena (MCA), Show Court 2, Show Court 3, Court 6 and Court 8.
Step 6: SHOW TIME! Now just click on the play button on the screen shot of your choice. Just remember that if you ever click on the biggest screen you will always be taken to RLA. You need to click on the smaller screen shot in the bottom left hand corner immediately under the RLA screen shot.
All the times listed are the local time in Melbourne i.e. Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), so just subtract three hours from that to watch the tennis in Singapore.
