Roland-Garros: How to Watch Amazon Prime Video on Your TV

Amazon Prime Video is not only accessible on your tablet or smartphone: you can watch movies, series, documentaries, and even tennis matches right on your TV. Here’s how to access it.

For the first time in Roland-Garros history, a much-anticipated match will not be broadcast on France Télévisions, but through a subscription video on demand (SVOD). Amazon acquired part of the rights, forcing viewers to switch to video service Amazon Prime to watch certain matches. These are the night sessions broadcast by US multinationals, while the public service broadcasts matches throughout the day (except for the Amazon-exclusive Simonne-Mathieu Stadium).

The quarter-final match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be broadcast only on Amazon Prime Video, Tuesday May 31, 2022 from 8:45 PM. Jeff Bezos decided to make the match more accessible to everyone, without requiring them to pay a subscription or create an account to watch it.

Certainly some spectators will want to enjoy this event on their TV, and not on a small smartphone or computer monitor. Don’t panic: It’s very easy to access Amazon Prime Video on your TV. Here’s how.
