A Football/Soccer Stadium

Soccer fans in the United States have several options to watch Premier League matches live and on-demand. With NBC Sports holding the broadcasting rights until 2028, games air across NBC channels and Peacock Premium streaming. Read on for full details on channels, streaming services, schedules and more to catch all the Premier League action.

When and Where To Watch Premier League On US TV

Watching Premier league matches on TV

NBC Sports Group airs all 380 Premier League matches per season across its platforms. This includes the NBC broadcast channel, USA Network, Universo, Telemundo, Peacock Premium streaming, and more. 

On TV:

– NBC – Select Saturday 12:30-2:30 pm ET matches

– USA Network – Multiple matches on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays

– Universo – 1-2 Saturday games in Spanish

– Telemundo – 1-2 Sunday games in Spanish  

Other shows like Premier League Goal Zone and highlights packages air on CNBC and the NBC Sports channel (with TV provider authentication).  

Games not aired on linear channels stream on Peacock Premium. NBC has held the exclusive broadcasting rights in the USA since 2013 after taking over from Fox Sports and ESPN. Their current contract runs through the 2027-28 season. 

The schedule typically features 10 live matches each Premier League weekend across the NBC networks. Compare this to fans in England who can only watch 2-3 live games each weekend due to broadcasting restrictions in place since the 1960s.   

So soccer enthusiasts in America can enjoy unparalleled access to England’s top soccer tier. With NBC providing additional shoulder programming and streams for pre-match press conferences and post-game interviews, fans get immersed in the Premier League action.

How To Stream Premier League Matches In The USA

In addition to Peacock Premium streaming 175 exclusive games, several live TV streaming services provide access to NBC channels.

Options include:

– FuboTV (free 7-day trial, then $69.99/month)  

– Sling Blue (50% off first month, then $40/month)   

– Hulu + Live TV ($69.99/month)

– YouTube TV (free 10-day trial, then $64.99/month for 3 months)

These internet TV services replace cable and include other sports/entertainment channels. Of the options, YouTube TV provides the best overall package while Sling Blue is the most affordable. 

Peacock Premium remains the cheapest method to get Premier League streams at just $4.99/month. Pay $9.99/month for the Premium Plus ad-free plan. 

One streaming hack is that certain Xfinity and Spectrum internet customers can get Peacock Premium discounted or free. For example, Xfinity subscribers to gigabit internet unlock 2 years of Peacock Premium.

Cord-cutting soccer fans should also consider Paramount+ ($4.99/month). This streams UEFA club competitions featuring top Premier League teams like Manchester City, Arsenal and more. 

No cable login or contract required makes streaming flexible for your needs. Other questionable sites deliver sports content, but these are the most legit.

Of course, fans of specific clubs can better predict when you need to tune in. Big six clubs Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur typically get several prominently televised fixtures.

You can check exact fixtures on NBC Sports Gold or our Premier League TV schedule. This displays the next six to eight weeks of matches detailing the date, time, channel and how to stream. 

Be sure to also bookmark the schedule on your calendar for a heads up on games. Set reminders on your phone 15 minutes before kick-off so you never miss the heart-stopping action.

With matches spread primarily across 4 days (Friday to Monday), pace yourself. It’s a marathon, not a sprint! Save thrilling Sunday/Monday evening action for unwinding after the rigours of the work week.
