How to Stream Premier League in the United States
Fans in the United States, you’re in for a treat. There are two ways to stream the upcoming Premier League in your region. First, you can access all the matches on NBC Sports. It has been that way ever since 2013, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon. Previously, you’re used to watching the championship on Fox Sports and ESPN. We don’t know if in the upcoming years these two channels might win the rights back. But for now, Premier League has a home in NBC Sports.
With NBC Sports, you have an option to stream every match in the league. How? Well, it’s been two years since NBC Sports started to paywall games through the Premier League Pass. This feature is only available via NBC Sports Gold subscription. In my opinion, that’s a great way to stream your favorite matches. You have two plans, Matchday Pass and the Premier League Pass. The difference between the two is that Matchday Pass allows you live-access with no replays included.
On the other hand, Premier League Pass lets you stream the matches live or on-demand for an extra fee. The plans are as such:
- Matchday Pass: $39.99
- Premier League Pass: $64.99
That’s not all. Another good thing about NBC Sports is that it allows users to watch its content through various devices. You can stream the 2019/20 Premier League live on Android, Chromecast, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Windows PC, or Mac.
That’s the first channel, let’s jump right to one of my personal favorites, Sling TV. If you have long term deals and prefer a monthly subscription, Sling TV is what you’re looking for. The streaming platform has been around for quite some time now, giving users access to various channels in the United States. With a small monthly fee, you can stream the likes of NBC Sports, USA Network, A&E, and so many more. However, the channels you get are based on your subscription plan. You won’t be able to watch NBC Sports if you decide to go for an Orange plan. Only those with a Sling Blue or Orange+Blue can get a hold of NBC Sports.
Sling TV is considered to be one of the cheapest streaming services in the United States. I mean, come on, have you seen what you’ll be getting for a simple monthly fee? That’s not all. You also get to take the service for a spin courtesy of their 7-day free trial. Once you get yourself a subscription, you can stream the 2019/20 Premier League on Xbox One, iPhone, iPad, Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PC, Mac, Android, Roku, and select Smart TVs.
Watch the English Premier League in the UK
Soccer comes home when we’re talking about the UK. That’s why you also get two options to choose from in the country. Sky Sports and BT Sports have been collaborating over the years to bring you the best Premier League experience. By collaborating I mean each channel has its own rights to broadcast certain matches. Last year, Sky dominated the coverage, with over 126 games in the previous season, while BT stood at 42 only. This year, the total number of matches increases all in all. I don’t know the distribution yet, but in total, you’ll be getting 200 matches instead of last year’s 160.
There are two other ways to stream some or highlights of the League in the United Kingdom as well. You all know the dominant streaming giant Amazon Prime. Well, this year, the service decided to join in on sports coverage by purchasing the rights to show every game from the Boxing Day round. That’s quite step up for the channel, to be honest. As for highlights, the BBC will take the honors of broadcasting those. So, if there’s a team you don’t feel like watching a full match for, tune into BBC and stream the highlights.
To watch the Premier League on Sky Sports, you need a Sky subscription. If you already have that, feel free to stream it on Mac, Android, PC, or iOS. You can also tune in to the soccer drama using Now TV. It offers very flexible passes for Sky Sports, most notably £7.99 per day.
Now, if you’re a BT Sport subscriber, you just have to download their dedicated app on your device, and you’re good to go. BT Sport has clients on mobile phones, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV, PlayStation, and Xbox. If you don’t know how to subscribe, here are the plans to expect.
Premier League 28 Live in Canada
DAZN has been upping its game in the past couple of years. I mean they’re the official broadcaster for all Bellator events. And now, the channel is taking over the Premier League in the Canadian district. The deal came to life a couple of months ago and is set to kick off this August. Don’t worry; you have three consecutive years before DAZN gets to choose whether to renew the contract or not. Make use of what you have now.
According to DAZN’s official website:
“The addition of the Premier League will give Canadaian fans access to some of the world’s best clubs, and cements DAZN’s position as the home of European soccer in Canada.”
I’m sorry to disappoint Sportsnet and TSN subscribers, but the Netflix of Sports has struck again. You see, as grand as DAZN is, it’s pretty cheap when we speak of its subscription fees. You can access the top sports in the country for only $20 a month. However, if you prefer a more extended subscription, you can always go for their annual plan, which stands at $150 a year.
But wait, I suggest you take your time and stand your ground till August arrives. That way, you get to benefit from their 30-day free trial before you start paying your dues. By the way, if you consider yourself a top sports fan who knows his/her way around streaming devices, you’ll be delighted that DAZN is available on all sorts of platforms. You can get their application on PlayStation, Xbox, Roku, Smart TVs, Apple TV, Amazon FireStick, Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, PC, and Mac.
English Premier League 2019/20 in Australia
Aussies, I have good news for you. You no longer have to abide by Optus‘ weird subscription. Remember those times when their service was only available via mobile and broadband? Well, that’s in the past now. The channel gives Australians access to its sports channel for only $14.99 per month. That’s a massive step towards a better streaming future for the service itself. That’s not all. Optus nabbed the EPL broadcasting rights for the next three seasons (380 matches). You can download their application from the Google Play Store and Apple Store. In addition, you can watch the Premier League live on Apple TV and Chromecast.
But why? Why did this happen without a prior warning? Well, according to Allen Lew, Optus Chief Executive, he wanted people to take Optus as more than just a Telco. Optus Sports coverage was part of this plan to enter the media industry. Here’s what he had to say:
“At the end of the day, it is about establishing relationships with customers and homes and to get Optus in front of people who have never experienced us before. We believe the quality of Optus Sport is good enough that when people experience it we will be able to leverage that initial relationship to sell more products and services to them.”
Do you hear that SBS, Network Ten, and Fox Sports? You now have a huge competitor to keep up with. It already snatched the Premier League from between your grasps, what’s next?
Live EPL Streaming in India
In 2017, India got the best gift sports had to offer – the rights to broadcast the English Premier League. Now tell me, what’s the best channel in the country that could take on the job? Well, none other than Hotstar, of course. Ever since the claim on EPL, it has been airing live matches of the League without any competitor stepping forward to claim the rights. That’s why I see it bringing Indian fans the joy of soccer for a long time in the upcoming future.
You might ask yourself this: why does a channel offer so much for that little cost? Hotstar has always been one of the cheapest channels in the world. It’s not because of its quality; it’s just the way it is. You get full access to the EPL along with hundreds of shows and movies for just $2.89$ a month. However, for those who prefer a long-term subscription, you can always get an annual plan for $14.45. Not only that, if you want to make yourself feel a bit more special, you can get their VIP plan for $5.27 a month. It’s still very cheap compared to other streaming services out there.
By the way, you get to take the channel’s quality for a test drive as it allows anyone in India to stream 15 mins of any content for free. You then get to choose whether to invest in the channel or not. But seriously, if there’s a free trial or not, the channel is worth subscribing to. Don’t forget. It’s your only ticket to the English Premier League in India. Now, hurry up, get yourself a Hotstar subscription so that you can watch the 2019/20 EPL live on Apple TV, iOS, PC, Mac, or Chromecast.
Please note that you can’t subscribe to the service unless you live in India. It’s not just about geo-restrictions in Hotstar’s case. You also need to provide an Indian number so that you can receive an SMS to complete the sign-up process
Stream the 2019/20 Premier League Live in South Africa
Have you ever heard of DStv’s SuperSport? If you live in South Africa, then the answer is a big YES. The channel is the most popular sports broadcaster in all of the country. I mean, have you seen a channel that had Premier League broadcasting rights for over 17 years? Well, you got SuperSport. I think it’s not going anywhere.
The channel is subscription-based. That means you need to subscribe to a specific plan to stream the Premier League live. Before you waste your time and look for the perfect plan, the DStv Premium is the one recommended. It’ll cost you a total of $58.32 per month, but it’s worth every penny. You don’t just get to access SuperSport, but also the likes of Cartoon Network, CNN, Al Jazeera, Fox, E!, National Geographic, The History Channel, and dozens more.
This is what the Premier League Executive Chairman, Richard Scudamore had to say:
“We have worked with SuperSport for a number of years and are extremely pleased to extend our partnership.”
See? I told you SuperSport is not going anywhere. That’s why if you live in South Africa, you should get a subscription right away. You won’t find another home that broadcasts the English Premier League elsewhere. Once you’ve created your account, download their app on Android, PC, Mac, iOS, Samsung Smart TV, Android TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast and stream the best matches of the year live.
Premier League – Free Streaming?
There’s nothing more tempting than the word “free”. However, this fact comes with its ups and downs, especially when we’re talking about the internet. If it’s a free sample, it’s fine. A free trial, we can manage. But free streaming? That’s where you have to draw the line guys. Why would you stream on websites that offer content in low resolution and a lot of buffering pauses?
Websites that offer live EPL streaming are the ultimate piracy. They’re illegal and may get you in trouble if you use their services. First, the Premier League warned anyone from using such methods. Second, you’ll be exposing yourself to all kinds of online threats in the process. It’s not about violating copyright laws anymore. The internet is a dangerous place. Why do you think live streaming exists? Is it because Robinhood’s there to help streamers out? No. Hackers are roaming around the internet, waiting for the right moment to harvest your data.
Don’t risk it; use a premium service to watch the Premier League. What would you prefer? Would you like to pay with a few nickles or with your private information? The answer is easy. Not only that, but your device will also be at risk. There’s a malware problem as well. You never know what will infect your device while using such websites in addition to those frustrating ads popping every second. Come on, you know better.
Oh, by the way, Kodi users, don’t try to get around paying for premium channels by download unofficial add-ons. The Premier League is watching your every move. Avoid getting sued by subscribing to an official channel instead.

Inside the 2019/20 Premier League
On August 10th, the English Premier League will kick off its 28th season. It’s too early to make certain predictions, but all eyes are on the defending champions this year, Manchester City. They have the highest chance to win this year, followed by Liverpool.
It’s simple. Just like every Premier League, 20 teams will be competing. They will be going up against each other with each team facing the other twice (Home and Away). With a win, the club scores three points, a draw gives one point, and a loss ends them up with nothing. Let’s get a closer look at what we’re expecting in this upcoming season:
We all know that 20 teams are going to be competing in this year’s Premier League. As for those who are not keeping records, the teams are as follows:
- Aston Villa
- Brighton & Hove Albion
- Crystal Palace
- Leicester City
- Manchester City
- Manchester United
- Norwich City
- Newcastle United
- Sheffield United
- Tottenham Hotspur
- West Ham United
- Wolverhampton Wanderers
Let’s be honest. Some matches are more important to us as viewers than others. I mean can you compare a showdown between Aston Villa and Southampton to an epic battle between Manchester United and Manchester City? No, you can’t. Therefore, here’s check out the Premier League’s official page to see what matches to look forward to.
Last season, Manchester City got a taste of what it’s like to be champion twice in a row. Can they make it a triple threat win? Well, the odds are in their favor as they have (5-8). They’re directly followed by Liverpool (9-4), Tottenham (14-1), Chelsea (20-1) and Manchester United (20-1). These are the top five of the season. Again, these are just predictions, you never know what the Premier League has in stores for us.
The only thing I know is that Liverpool‘s club has to up its game. I mean, not even a single League win? Even Blackburn Rovers have won it. Let’s hope this year is the year they fulfill a life-long dream. But to be honest, they do have a lot of competition blocking their way. Chelsea has Frank Lampard now as a manager. The former Chelsea midfielder has his way on the field. Do you think he’ll take his team all the way to the top? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
We don’t know much yet. But so far, some odds and predictions are spreading all over the internet. Let’s see what odds we have in the 2019/20 Premier League:
- Manchester City 5-8
- Liverpool 9-4
- Tottenham 14-1
- Manchester United 20-1
- Chelsea 20-1
- Arsenal 30-1
- Wolverhampton 150-1
- Everton 150-1
- Leicester City 250-1
- Newcastle 250-1
- West Ham 500-1
- Southampton 1000-1
- Watford 1000-1
- Crystal Palace 1000-1
- Bournemouth 1000-1
- Brighton and Hove Albion 1000-1
- Aston Villa 1000-1
- Burnley 1000-1
- Norwich City 2000-1
- Sheffield United 2000-1
