The 2021-22 Premier League is now officially underway, and here’s how to watch every Premier League 2021/22 game live. For those not in the know, the Premier League is the top tier of football over in the UK. It’s similar to the Bundesliga in Germany, La Liga in Spain, or Serie A over in Italy.
The Premier League returned after the international break with an explosive weekend of football. Both Newcastle United vs. Brentford and Burnley vs. Crystal Palace ended in 3-3 thrillers, Liverpool dominated Arsenal 4-0, Watford shocked Manchester United 4-1 and there were huge 3-0 victories for Chelsea and Manchester City over the weekend, too.
Another win means Chelsea stills holds its 3-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table. Will Chelsea extend that lead when they face Manchester United this weekend?
Here’s how to watch the 2021-22 Premier League season live online so you can keep up with all the action from the EPL as it continues.
How to watch the Premier League in the United States
If you’re wanting to watch the Premier League in the US, it’s nice and easy. That’s because NBCUniversal has the rights to every single game, so you can watch the entire season (all 380 matches) across NBC’s platforms.
Most folks will find games on NBCSN (with a few spread across CNBC, USA, or NBC proper), which is available on every cable service or major streaming platform.
The most economical way to get NBCSN if you don’t already have it is to sign up for the Sling Blue package on Sling TV. On its own, it costs $35 a month and gets you more than 40 channels — including NBCSN. But you can do even better if you pair it up with the Sling Orange plan, for $50 a month. (And that’s after a Sling TV free trial.)
Premier League games on NBC and NBCSN will also be streamed at the NBCSports website and on the NBC Sports app.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. For the full experience and access to all the Premier League games in the United States, you’re going to need a subscription to Peacock — NBCUniversal’s dedicated streaming service.
There’s a catch, though. The free tier of Peacock isn’t going to get the job done. You’ll need a paid subscription to the Peacock Premium service.
For $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year, you can get the ad-supported version of Peacock Premium. If you don’t want to see any ads, you can spend an additional $5 a month (or pay $99.99 annually). Either of these packages will allow you to watch live sports like the English Premier League and get you access to Peacock Originals, late-night talk shows, and next-day access to returning broadcast series.
