The 2007 tournament was broadcast live in the UK on satellite station Challenge, who were broadcasting a PDC tournament for the first time. Limited coverage of the event was shown on US sport channel Versus. In 2008 coverage passed to Nuts TV in the UK.
The US Open retains a short game format throughout, sharing the same format as all of the Players Championship events on the PDC Pro Tour - from the first round to the final each game is best of 5 sets and best of 3 legs to a set. The only exception was the 2007 final which was best of 7 sets.
