How to watch badminton on BWF TV

Watch badminton free on YouTube

by BWT Admin

BWF TV is the official Badminton World Federation (BWF) YouTube channel that broadcasts most BWF events throughout the year. You can watch live broadcasts, replays, highlights, and more on the channel.

BWF TV enforces geo-block for countries where badminton tournament broadcast rights have been sold to local broadcasters. If your country is on the geo-block list, you must use a VPN to enjoy live broadcasts.

How to watch

  • First, you need to install a VPN app on your device. You can use a free or paid VPN service. But keep in mind that free services have limitations.
  • Next, choose a server in a country where badminton tournament broadcasting rights are not sold. You can regularly monitor the BWF website or social media for tournament broadcasters worldwide.
  • After finding the best server, open the BWF TV YouTube channel. Now you can watch live badminton broadcasts from your device. Make sure your internet network is stable.


There are more than 200 international badminton and para-badminton tournaments on the BWF annual calendar. However, BWF only broadcasts events in the BWF World Tour calendar and all the BWF major events, such as BWF World Championships, Thomas and Uber Cup Finals, and Sudirman Cup.

Since the BWF World Tour tournaments have different levels, the live broadcast schedules are also different.

  • Super 1000 tournaments start from the first round
  • Super 750 tournaments start from the first round
  • Super 500 tournaments start from the second round
  • Super 300 tournaments start from the semi-finals
