    The Australian summer of tennis is here and it all gets underway with the Hopman Cup in Perth, starting on Saturday, December 30 at 1pm (AEDT) with Roger Federer headlining the field. This is The Roar‘s ultimate guide to live streaming the tournament online and watching it on TV.

    All matches of the tournament will be held at Perth Arena, with the final to take place from 7pm (AEDT) on Saturday, January 6.

    Unlike other tennis tournaments, the Hopman Cup is a team-based tournament. Eight nations will be represented by one male and one female player, with the teams then split into two groups.

    Across the course of the week, the four teams will play three tie’s against the other teams in their group, with each tie consisting of two singles matches (one male, one female) and a mixed doubles match played under Fast 4 rules.

    The two group winners will then square off in a final on Saturday, January 6 at 7pm (AEDT).

    Last year’s champions were Richard Gasquet and Kristina Mladenovic of France, however, they have not returned to defend their crown.

    Australia’s team has also had a change. Daria Gavrilova returns for another year, however, Nick Kyrgios has decided to play in the Brisbane International and will be replaced by Thanasi Kokkinakis in Perth.

    How to watch the tournament on TV

    Channel Seven hold broadcast rights to the Hopman Cup. They will be broadcasting every match across the course of the week through 7Mate.

    7Mate can be found on Channel 73 in high definition on digital TV or Channel 188 if you are watching through Foxtel.

    Their coverage will start at 1pm (AEDT) for day sessions and 8:30pm (AEDT) for evening sessions.

    How to live stream the tournament online

    The tournament can be live streamed through any of seven’s streaming applications.

    If you are looking to watch online through either desktop or laptop, then you will need to use the 7 Live website.

      Watching Kyrios playing doubles, but camera is not in good position…
      We cannot see the return shots from the receiver when the server serves the ball.
      Very disappointing!
      Camera needs to be higher!

      The commentary of the Hopman cup match showing Roger Federer was egocentric, juvenile, and unrelated to the match. They continued talking over the tennis about themselves, in complete contrast to the excellent reporting of the tennis in Brisbane.

      Please stop the commentary at courtside,the whispering is a complete waste of time, cant hear it and don’t want to hear it. I want to watch the tennis, but while courtside commentary is on the tennis becomes secondary to the whispering commentators. The main commentary is enough. The courtside commentators dont know when to stop!!

      Worst commentary ever particularly of Hopman Cup. Also this jumping from channel to channel is infuriating. Not all of us want to watch the tennis on mobile apps. That is why we have large tv screens.

      The guy doing the court -side and post match interviews is a total embarassment .

      I can’t believe you let it happen . Yesterday he sat and talked to Federer- about himself

      while his partner was actually on court playing her match .

      Then TONIGHT after the Swiss girl’s match he wants to interview her on court about what Roger is “REALLY LIKE”

      Get it right or give it to someone else who understands the basic difference between the match commentary and this

      facebook fan goss interview which should be post match and done a hell of a lot better than it was tonight

      Courtside commentary was disrespectful to those playing.
