Indian Wells is one of the biggest non-Grand Slam tournaments of the year and always attracts a stellar line-up. On the men’s side of the draw, world number one Novak Djokovic will play in the event for the first time since 2019 and is aiming to win a record sixth title.

However, it won’t be easy for the Serb as the competition is fierce and includes defending champion Carlos Alcaraz as well as the Australian Open winner and runner-up Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev. 

The women’s draw looks equally wide-open as it features a host of big hitters that includes defending champion Elena Rybakina, world number one Iga Swiatek, Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka, reigning U.S. Open champion Coco Gauff and home favorite Naomi Osaka. Two-time champion Caroline Wozniacki and 2021 U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu have also both received wildcards. 

With a stacked field and a whopping $1.1 million on offer for the winners, you can be sure there will be some high-quality tennis on display throughout the two weeks. But who will emerge victorious on the hard courts in California?

Check out all of the TV and streaming details below to find out how to watch the 2024 Indian Wells Masters from anywhere.

Sky Sports will be showing all the action from Indian Wells in the UK, so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £18/month to add those channels. The game will be shown on Sky Sports Tennis. 

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

Sky Glass is another option. This gives you Sky TV within a 4K TV that has a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, and without the need for a dish. Prices start at £13/month for the TV, plus a sky sub on top of that.  

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.99 or month-long access for £34.99. 

All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the UK, you can still follow the 2024 Indian Wells tournament live stream by using one of the best VPN services, such as NordVPN
