How to stream the Premier League live in the UK
What about the non-televised games?
Footy fans in the US, India, Canada and Australia all have live access to every Premier League game - even the 3pm Saturday kick-offs.
That's not the case or fans in the UK however. Despite being the home of the Premier League, UK viewers have to contend with some pretty harsh restrictions, with only a fraction of the league's 390 games broadcast live in the region.
Subscription services Sky Sports and BT Sport once again hold most of the live broadcast rights for the Premier League football in the UK, with the free-to-air BBC limited to highlights via Match of the Day. Sky continues to dominate the coverage, with the rights to show 128 games in multiple time slots during the 2019/20 season, while while BT has 32 Saturday lunchtime matches and 20 mid-week games.
Sky will again be offering broadcasts of all its matches in Ultra HD and Dolby Atmos to Sky Q subscribers, while BT have launched their new BT Sport Ultimate channel which goes one step further - with broadcasts set to be presented in glorious HDR.
If you're looking to stream Sky's televised matches on the go, a Sky Sports subscription enables you to watch on mobile, tablet and PC via the Sky Go service. You can also stream live via Now TV, which offers attractive passes for Sky Sports starting at £8.99 per day to £33.99 for a month pass. Or go all out and splash £199 for the next 10 months - the best value of all!
For BT Sport subscribers, the BT Sport app or BTSport.com is where you need to go for mobile or PC streaming of their games.
Alongside the two main broadcasters, there's a new player in town this season. Amazon is due to show all 10 live matches being played on Boxing Day plus another full round of ten midweek fixtures in December. For the matches shown exclusively via Amazon, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership. In theory you could watch these games for free if you time things right as Amazon is currently offering non-subscribers a free 30-day-trial of the service, with the service otherwise costing £7.99 a month.
If you find yourself outside the UK and want to watch one of the televised Premier League games as per above, don't worry about geo-blockers on your account – simply grab a VPN and follow the instructions above to live stream the action.

If you're willing to shell out $64.99 for the top-tier Premier League Pass, you'll get access to all 380 matches live, plus highlights, analysis and on-demand replays.
Whichever flavour of NBC's service you go for, the broadcasts are available on iOS, Android phones and tablets, desktop web browsers, Apple TV (Gen 4), Roku, Amazon Fire TV, AndroidTV and Chromecast devices connected via HDMI via NBC's dedicated app.
