AFTER THE EXCITEMENT of the World Cup, it’s time to gear up for more soccer: England’s Premier League is returning on Dec. 26 after its hiatus for the tournament in Qatar.
Luckily for U.S. fans, NBC signed a deal this year with the powerhouse football group that makes it easier than ever to watch Premier League in the States. Below is everything you need to know about how to watch the Premier League online in the U.S., including a couple of ways to watch EPL games online for free.
How to Watch Premier League Online Without Cable
Though you can watch about half of this season’s Premier League games on cable TV through NBC and USA Network, cord-cutters might be better off: NBC’s streaming service Peacock is the only place to watch the other half of the EPL games this season. This means you’ll need a subscription to Peacock, as well as access to NBC and USA Network if you want to watch every Premier League game online this season.
Here’s a complete guide to some of the best streaming services that will let you watch Premier League games online:
1. Stream Premier League on Peacock
In terms of bang for your buck, Peacock is the best way to watch Premier League games online in 2022. The NBC streaming service will have Premier League live streams for about half of the season’s games, and a subscription costs just $4.99 a month. Peacock also offers a $9.99 subscription tier — Peacock Premium Plus — which removes ads from on-demand content.
2. Stream Premier League on DirecTV Stream
Another way to watch Premier League online is to get a live TV streaming service like DirecTV Stream. The streamer has both NBC and USA Network in its lineup, making it an easy way to watch Premier League without getting a cable package. Better yet, DirecTV Stream has unlimited cloud DVR, so you can record games that happen at odds hours here in the States. Plus, you get a five-day free trial before paying. After the free trial, DirecTV Stream costs $69.99 per month.
3. Stream Premier League on fuboTV
Another great live TV streaming service is fuboTV, which includes NBC and USA Network as part of its channel lineup. The streaming service offers 1000 hours of DVR storage for games that air too early, or maybe while you’re at work. After a seven-day free trial, fuboTV costs $69.99 a month.
4. Stream Premier League on Sling
If you’re looking for a more affordable live TV streamer, check out Sling. To watch Premier League online using Sling, you’ll need the service’s Blue package to get NBC and USA Network. The Blue package costs just $40 per month.
How to Watch Premier League Free Online in the US
Looking to watch Premier League online for free? You’ve got a couple of options in the form of free trials, as mentioned above. Using fuboTV’s free trial, you’ll get seven days to watch Premier League for free. Similarly, you can use the five-day DirecTV Stream free trial to watch five days’ worth of games for free.
Although you won’t be able to watch the whole Premier League season for free online, these free trials let you get a free Premier League live stream for a few games.
