There are so many different ways to stay up-to-date with the Premier League in the US. We’ll cover everything–including how to watch on TV, stream, watch at the pub, and listen on the radio.
The Premier League, also known as the English Premier League (EPL), is the most popular soccer league in the world. Globally, the league attracts nearly 5 billion viewers. In the United States, many of the games attract more than 1 million viewers each week. In the 2019/20 season, NBC averaged 831,379 viewers.
The Arsenal-Man United match in January 2023 set a single-game record for EPL viewership in the US, with an average of 2.3 million viewers across NBC, Telemundo and Peacock. Later in that calendar year, the season-opening match between Liverpool and Chelsea became the most-streamed EPL game ever on Peacock.
Premier League clubs have earned as much as over $200 million from a single season of television broadcasting money in recent years.
Unlike TV networks in England where an average of three Premier League games are shown live every weekend, soccer fans in the United States have access to all 10 games live every weekend, totaling 380 during an entire season.
Where to find Premier League on TV
The TV network NBC Sports Group has exclusive EPL rights in the US through the end of the 2027/28 season, and airs every single match across its platform of NBC channels and streaming service, Peacock Premium. Many of these Premier League matches are shown on the USA Network channel (or sometimes CNBC), while the over-the-air NBC broadcast channel airs most Saturday 12:30-2:30pm ET matches throughout the season.
It seemed surprisingly possible that NBC may have lost the rights to the EPL in 2021, but in open bidding they regained the contract for another six seasons.

Premier League Streaming in the USA
While the majority of soccer fans in the United States watch the Premier League on television, more and more people are switching to legal streaming services to watch the games on laptops, smartphones, tablets and connected TVs instead. The advantage is that you do not have to be tied to a cable or satellite TV subscription. Plus you can watch the games when you want, where you want and on whatever device you prefer.
The four main streaming options to choose in the United States (other than NBC Sports, which you need a cable/satellite TV subscription to authenticate to) are Fubo, Sling Blue, YouTube TV and Hulu Live. Fubo offers access to NBC (in select cities), USA Network and CNBC as well as ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, FOX Soccer Plus, FOX Deportes and a ton of other channels.
Peacock Premium, NBC’s paid subscription service, will also stream 175 games exclusively during the season. Replacing NBC Sports Gold, Peacock Premium is $5.99 per month or $59.99 annually for the general public.
On a typical Premier League weekend during the season which starts in August, you can expect to watch 6 EPL games every weekend via Fubo. The games not included on tradition TV networks are on Peacock Premium.

Plus, many Premier League clubs have official supporters clubs in the United States that can steer you in the direction of recommended pubs.

Live radio broadcasts of matches are only available on talkSPORT on their website. However, our recommendation is to listen to Premier League broadcasts via BBC Radio 5. To unblock the radio broadcast so you can hear it, you’ll need to use a VPN.
Premier League teams in cup competitions
While NBC Sports Group has the TV rights to the Premier League matches through until the end of the 2027/28 season, the rights to games featuring Premier League teams in other competitions are owned by other broadcasters.
