Sling Blue, a fraction of the price of other services, has just shy of 30 Premier League games through November.
Despite a World Cup throwing off the traditional calendar of the English top flight, the schedule rolls on at the conclusion of the September international window. In fact, it is something of a crunch to fit in as many games as possible.
Sling Blue: Premier League’s busy schedule through December
For viewers in the United States, this means a nonstop flow of games midweek and on the weekends. Of course, the Premier League reserves its spot for the weekend, with European and other cup action midweek. With games in the United States airing on either USA Network, NBC or Peacock Premium, fans have options at their disposal.
One of those options is Sling Blue, which broadcasts all games in the Premier League on NBC or USA Network for just $35 per month. Combine this with the $4.99 per month subscription to Peacock, and it is the most cost-efficient way to watch all Premier League games.
Comparatively, streaming services like fuboTV, YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV are all more than $65 per month. Moreover, these do not include Peacock. Therefore, devout Premier League fans may only use these services for USA Network or NBC. Again, USA Network is available on Sling Blue, and NBC is also available for select markets.
Sling Blue and the Premier League before the World Cup
As stated, the Premier League heats up to a rapid pace before the World Cup. While The Queen’s passing put a hiatus on what was already a rampant season, there are no foreseeable delays over the next couple months.
Sling Blue makes many of these games available. Plus, the aforementioned combination with Peacock Premium allows American audiences to watch at a fraction of the cost.
Some of the best games prior to the World Cup are right when the international break ends. The North London Derby between Arsenal and Spurs is on Oct. 1, the first game back from international duty. About a week after that, Arsenal is at home again to another major side, Liverpool. Mikel Arteta and the Gunners are the league leaders entering the international break. However, the schedule does not get any easier.
Includes: FS1, USA Network, World Cup & more
Perhaps the preseason pick for best game of the season is available on Sling Blue on Sunday, Oct. 16. Liverpool hosts Manchester City in a game that now sits as one of the most competitive rivalries in English, and European, soccer.
Closer to the World Cup, the weekend of Oct. 29 and 30 features Graham Potter’s return to Brighton as manager of Chelsea. That game is on USA Network. The following day, USA Network hosts another significant game. Liverpool hosts an American contingent at Leeds from Anfield, with both sides looking promising after the start to the season.
