It feels like just yesterday that the 2019/20 Premier League season was wrapping up, but we’re already looking ahead to the 2020/21 fixtures. We’ve got all of the details on how to live stream Premier League games online during the upcoming season no matter where you are in the world.
After an unusual end to last season following a pandemic-enforced break in play, Liverpool managed to hold their nerve in order to lift their first English top-flight trophy in 30 years. Arsenal then went on to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final to end the domestic season in England on August 1.
Bournemouth, Watford, and Norwich City were relegated last term and will be replaced by are Fulham, Leeds United, and West Bromwich Albion for the new campaign.
The 2020/21 Premier League season kicks off on September 12, around five weeks later than usual. That’s both due to the previous season not being played to completion until July as well as Europa League and Champions League football having been postponed until August. It’s also likely that England’s UEFA Nations League fixtures against Iceland and Denmark being scheduled for September 5 and 8, respectively, has influenced the later-than-usual kick-off.
That means Premier League sides are going to have a much more truncated pre-season period with just a matter of weeks between competitive fixtures having wrapped up and the new wave of games beginning.
Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of the 2020/21 Premier League season no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
When does the Premier League 2020/21 season start?

How to stream 2020/21 Premier League matches live in the UK
As it stands, no fans will be allowed to attend Premier League fixtures for the foreseeable future as England continues to battle with the coronavirus pandemic. That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the action, though, with games being broadcast each week. In fact, a report from The Times suggests that all Premier League games will be televised until fans can return to stadiums with the traditional Saturday 3pm TV blackout being lifted when the new season starts.
The majority of the matches will be split between via the league’s three major broadcast partners in the UK: Sky, BT, and Amazon Prime. It remains to be seen if any games will be available free-to-air as was the case at the end of last season.
If you don’t have Sky Sports and BT Sport channels as part of your TV package, you can subscribe to Now TV offers Day and Month Passes for Sky Sports and BT Sport offers a Monthly Pass for £25 that will allow you to stream the action from its channels via the BT Sport app. An Amazon Prime subscription gets you access to Prime Video for its games.
