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 traitional start date in the second week of August.

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

But we still have plenty of exciting matches left in the current season, and fans will be able to look forward to returning to stadiums when lockdown measures are eased for live sporting events from 17 May.

However, only a maximum of 10,000 fans will be allowed into stadiums with a typical capacity of more than 40,000. So if you're going to have to make do with watching your team on the TV instead of in the stands, here's where you can watch all the Premier League fixtures on TV.

Where can I watch Premier League football?

For the remainder of the season all televised matches will be aired on either Sky Sports or BT Sport, with a single game broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The Lion's share of those matches (forgive the pun) will be on Sky Sports. There will be 21 fixtures that you can watch on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HD. Then six games will be on BT Sport as well as the single match of Wolves v Burnley on BBC One.

This means that in order to watch as many Premier League games as possible, you'll need access to Sky Sports, either on Sky or via NOW.
