How to watch the Premier League on TV

How to watch the Premier League on TV

Following a shorter than usual season thanks to COVID, the upcoming Premier League season is looking to revert to its traditional start time in the second week of August.

The 2021/22 Premier League season will start on 13 August 2021, then conclude on 22 May 2022, with all 10 games kicking off simultaneously.

Plus, with almost all COVID restrictions now lifted, fans can once again flock in their thousands to football stadiums again. This follows a season where stadiums were shut to ticketholders for the majority of matches.

However, as per usual, there will be lots of ways to watch the footie on your TV too. Read on to find out where to access Premier League matches from home.

Where can I watch Premier League football?

The Lion's share of Premier League matches (forgive the pun) will be on Sky Sports. BT Sport and Amazon Prime will broadcast the rest, with Amazon Prime exclusively hosting the Premier League during the Christmas period.

This means that in order to watch as many Premier League games as possible, you'll mainly need access to Sky Sports — either on Sky or via NOW. If you're set on sitting back and watching the Prem in December though, you'll need an Amazon Prime Video subsciption.

Currently, TV scheduling for Sky Sports and BT Sport matches only reaches until the end of September, but future televised dates are sure to be announced soon.

Here are the initial scheduled dates for the Premier League's 21/22 season:

The latest Sky TV deals

Sky Sports Premier League fixtures

Sky TV has the broadcast rights to the majority of fixtures, with each match being shown on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HD channels simultaneously.

Sky TV's popular Sky Sports Football package is available for customers wishing to watch Premier League, EFL and Scottish Premiership games but aren’t too fussed about other sports such as cricket or golf.

Priced at £18 at the time of writing, this is a rolling monthly subscription, giving viewers the flexibility to sign up and cancel each month depending on what they'd like to watch — perfect for watching the rest of the season and unsubscribing in May.

Sky Sports subscribers can access a range of channels filled with live sport, including top-flight football matches each week. You will also be able to stream matches via the Sky Go app on a range of devices, including smartphones and tablets.

Can I watch the Premier League on NOW?

Alternatively, NOW gives you streaming access to every NOW Sports membership without signing up to a long-term contract. You can get a NOW Sports day membership for £9.99 or a six-month pass for £25 a month, at the time of writing.

NOW can be streamed through a computer or apps found on most smart TVs, phones and consoles.

Amazon Prime Premier League fixtures

A few years ago, Amazon secured the rights to a number of Premier League matches throughout the 19/20, 20/21 and 21/22 seasons. It has been exclusively broadcasting the Prem on its Prime Video streaming service during the Christmas period since 2019, and will continue that tradition in 2021 as well.

Amazon also broadcasts every Premier League fixture during its takeover period, so you can choose and flip between between every single Premier League match that's on that weekend.

As long as you have an Amazon Prime Video subscription, you'll be able to enjoy the Premier League throughout the Christmas period.

BT Sport Premier League fixtures

BT Sport has secured six of the remaining Premier League matches this season.

In addition to the Premier League matches, BT Sport is the only place to watch the Champions League this 2020/21 season, as well as the Europa League. BT Broadband customers can add BT Sport to their existing contracts for an additional £15 per month.
