By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

Hey, sports-starved fans across the globe, the new Premier League 2020/21 season starts on 20th September, 2020. Though no fans will be admitted to get back inside stadiums until October at the earliest, you still can spend your weekend with English top-flight football matches online and live stream. 2019/20 was absolutely a poetic season for the Reds. They ended 30-year wait and lifted the Premier League Trophy for the first time, setting a new record for winning a title with 7 games remaining. And the following season we have newly promoted teams, Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, and foreign talented players like James Rodríguez, Donny van de Beek, Hakim Ziyech dancing on the England pitch. Guess what will happen next year.

Wondering how to watch the Premier league online and live stream in your place? Below is a complete guide for you, including live radio and apps to watch game reports. Without further ado, let's jump right in!

How to Watch Premier League in UK

The Premier League and broadcasters were planning not to broadcast live all the matches (160 out of 380 games) to UK fans for protecting the local club's ticket revenue. Regular match-goers or season ticket holders, of course, can watch their teams by going to stadiums. However, during the global pandemic, no fans are allowed in stadiums before October. And supports were in concern of missing some games in September.

The good news is that EFL (the English Football League) has come to an arrangement with broadcasters which allows all Premier League fixtures in September to be televised and streamed on Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and the BBC. Let's take a look at how to access EPL games in UK.

How to watch Premier League in UK

Sky Sports

Pricing: Sky TV bundles start at £29/mo, NOW TV Sky Sports Pass starts at £9.99

Sky Sports still take the lion's share of Premier League broadcasting rights in 2020/21 and will show more games than any other broadcaster. To watch English top-flight matches on Sky, you can either order Sky TV bundles (a customizable TV package), or go for a NOW TV Sky Sports Pass.

Sky TV bundles contain not only PL matches, it also includes UEFA Champions League, Netflix, Sky Q, Sky Cinema, etc. NOW TV Sky Sports Pass allows you to watch all 11 Sky Sports channels live. And you can choose how long you would like to stay without signing up to a contract, Day Pass, Week Pass, Month Pass, to your will.

If you are always on-the-go, a Sky Sports subscription allows you to watch matches on the mobile, tablet, laptop via the Sky Go app.

BT Sport

Pricing: Sports packages to BT Broadband/BT TV start at £15/mo; BT Sport Monthly Pass £25/mo

Getting the Premier League televised on BT Sport has many ways out. If you already have a BT Broadband or BT TV deal, you can opt for adding a BT Sport package to your existing contract for £15 per month. Or you can go out with the contract-free BT Sport Monthly Pass for £25 every month, which allows you to watch 4 BT Sports channels on Apple TV, Samsung smart TV, mobiles, tablets, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, etc. via the BT Sport app.

Amazon Prime Video

Pricing: £7.99 per month

In June 2018, Amazon obtained the exclusive live streaming rights for 20 matches in each of the three Premier League seasons since 2019 at a price of 90 million pounds. Therefore, Amazon shares two rounds of December fixtures, covering 10 games on the 15th round in early December and the remaining 10 on the 19th round on Boxing Day. Plus, the Amazon Prime subscription includes tons of Amazon original series, movies, TV shows, etc. in the library. You can watch all of them on mobiles, smart TVs, consoles, tablets using the Amazon Prime Video app.

BBC sports

Pricing: Free

The BBC didn't show the PL games because of the overwhelming broadcasting rights in the UK. Last season was the first time for the BBC to show live the PL matches since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, which was aimed to encourage the resumed games after a long time suspension. A total of four games will also be televised on BBC for free in this season. You can watch the on BBC TV, BBC iPlayer, the BBC Sport website and the BBC app.

Moreover, BBC's Match Of The Day also has an irreplaceable position in the mind of fans. The BBC renewed the three-year Premier League highlights broadcasting rights with a total cost of 211.5 million pounds in 2018.

It's worth remembering that BBC Radio 5 Live and Talksport are the solutions to listen to live radio of the Premier League.

How to Watch Premier League in US without Cable

NBC has exclusive broadcasting rights for the Premier League 2020/21 season in the United States, including the pay television channel NBC Sports (also known as NBCSN) and streaming service Peacock.

NBCSN

Pricing: Starting from $30/month

There are many ways to get the NBC Sports channel and each provider has its own subscription models. You can choose Live TV streaming services, such as Sling TV Blue for $30/month, Hulu with Live TV and AT&T TV Now for $55/month, FuboTV for $60/month, YouTube TV for $65/month, or TV packages covering AT&T U-verse, Google Fiber and Verizon Fios. For me, Live TV streaming services seem better. You can watch on smart TVs, mobiles, tablets, laptops without clunky set-top boxes or cables.

Peacock

Pricing: $4.99/mo

Probably Peacock premium for $4.99/month would be the best option for most people. One thing to note is that Peacock will show all games on demand after they air, which is a catch for those who can't watch live games from NBCSN. Moreover, you can access more than the Premier League in Peacock. Actually, NBC Peacock Premium sells mainly for the online streaming of movies, series as well as the exclusive broadcasting rights of NBC originals. That said, you can not only watch the Premier League, but many movies and series in Peacock premium.

But the real benefit that Disney+ Hotstar has is that it includes other Live sports events like Cricket & Kabaddi, a number of blockbuster movies, Disney+ content, as well as domestic programming. What surprises me are their consistent prices, VIP Plan Still at 399 INR/year and Premium Plan at 299 INR/mo. Plus, Disney+ Hotstar works the same as Peacock.
