Alexa serves up tennis knowledge for US Open

August 24, 2018

Amazon Prime Video will this year bring Prime members in the UK and Ireland live and exclusive coverage of the US Open Tennis Championships including multiple live streams from several courts, catch up highlights and full-match replays – all at no additional cost to their membership.

Giving viewers an extra advantage, Alexa can now also act as a go-to guide for all things tennis. Want to know the latest ATP scores? Ask Alexa. Curious about which tennis player is ranked where? Ask Alexa. Want to watch the US Open on Prime Video through your Echo Show or Echo Spot device? Alexa can help you with that.

Fans also have Alexa Skills at their disposal to access information with ease. Just enable the Skills via the Alexa app:

  • Tennis Scores gives you the latest ATP tennis scores for live and completed matches. Enable the Skill during the tournament and ask: “Alexa, ask Tennis Scores for live matches at the US Open”
  • Tennis Rank gives you the current ATP and WTA ranking by country. Enable the Skill and ask: “Alexa, ask Tennis Rank for the top ten men from Great Britain”

Prime Video’s live multi-stream coverage of the US Open begins on August 27th.
