Reports: TNT parent company secures French Open broadcast rights

french open television

Warner Bros. Discovery networks will broadcast the French Open in the United States beginning in 2025, securing the rights with a 10-year deal, multiple outlets reported.

The Athletic reported the agreement is worth $650 million.

NBC long has broadcast the tournament, which ends Sunday with the men’s final between No. 3 seed Carlos Alcaraz of Spain and No. 4 Alexander Zverev of Germany.

The shift comes amid criticism from fans, frustrated by trying to find the tournament on TV over the past two weeks. A few late-round matches have been on NBC, many streamed on Peacock and most were shown on Tennis Channel. Some matches have started on one network and moved to another mid-contest.

Warner Bros. Discovery has TNT Sports among its lineup of channels, which include TNT and TBS.

TNT airs a number of sports broadcasts, including the NCAA Tournament and the NBA. It recently made a deal with ESPN to carry some first-round and college football playoff games.

Currently, TNT is negotiating with the NBA to keep its package of games.
