Looking for a live stream of the women’s Australian Open final between Serena Williams and Venus Williams? There are a couple of different ways to do so, whether or not you have a cable subscription.
The match is scheduled to begin Saturday at 7:30 p.m. local time (3:30 a.m. ET) and will be broadcast on ESPN in the United States and Seven in Australia. Here’s a full rundown of your live stream options:

There are two different ways to watch a live stream on your computer:
If you have the log-in info for a cable or satellite subscription that includes ESPN, you can watch ESPN’s broadcast for free at WatchESPN.com. You’ll need a cable or satellite log-in and password to access the stream.
If you don’t have a cable subscription, you can still watch watch different streams and different camera angles–not necessarily the same as the ESPN broadcast–via WatchESPN.com as long as you have an internet service provider. To do this, just click on one of the streams that are marked as “ESPN 3” and don’t have a little key next to them.
Users without a cable subscription can also watch ESPN’s broadcast live via Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee. Here’s how to sign up for a free 7-day trial:
1) Click here to go to the Sling website
2) Click on “Watch Now 7 Days Free”
3) Create an account
4) Select the channel package or packages you want. Make sure to include Sling Orange, which includes ESPN
5) Enter your payment information. Sling Orange costs $20 per month, but if you cancel your subscription within seven days of signing up, you will not be charged
6) Download the app for your computer to start watching
