You can watch the US Open online these days, getting almost the entirety of tournament coverage through USOpen.com and the US Open apps. However, those are smaller screens. If you want to stream the US Open but watch the stream on your TV, then you have several options, including Google Home or Google Chromecast.
Here's how you can cast the US Open online streaming channels from the US Open app to your TV using Chromecast.
If you have Google's beautifully simple $35 dongle already set up on a bigger screen, then watching the US Open app or USOpen.com on your TV is a breeze.
How to stream the US Open using the US Open App and Google Chromecast
You can do this from your Android device with a Chromecast:
- Turn on your Google Chromecast and make sure it's connected to your phone.
- On your Android device, download, install and open the Google Home app.
- At the top of the screen, hit the hamburger/3-bar menu in the search box.
- From the menu that flies in from the left, select Cast Screen/Audio.
- On the screen that loads, hit Cast Screen/Audio, confirm the Chromecast you're sending to, then exit the app.
- Fire up the US Open app, open up a stream and enjoy!
If you're doing this from your desktop or another computer:
- Install Google Chrome if you don't already have it.
- Go to the Google Chrome Web Store and install the Google Cast extension. It'll create a Chromecast button to the right of the address bar in any tab you open.
- Go to US Open.com and click the Live button at the top of the page to open the streaming channels. Pick the one you want to watch.
- Click the Chromcast button on that tab and connect to the dongle in your TV or larger monitor.
- Click the full-screen button in the US Open.com streaming player to have the biggest view of the action possible on your computer.
