33 Premier League matches to be shown for free on TV – how to watch them

All of the remaining 92 games in the English Premier League will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport or Amazon Prime – and over a third of them will be available to watch for free. Plus the remaining seven FA Cup games will also be screened on TV, with four including the final shown 'free' on the BBC.

Update 7 July 2020: This story was first published ahead of the Premier League restart. We've kept it updated as new fixtures have been announced – see the full list of games below.

Typically, Premier League action is only available on paid-for channels, and only certain games can be broadcast, because of rules that prevent football being televised live between 2.45pm and 5.15pm on a Saturday within the United Kingdom.

But now – after top flight matches, played in empty stadiums, returned on Wednesday 17 June following an enforced break due to coronavirus – all games will be on TV for the rest of the season. We've full details below of how you can see them.

See Premier League watching hacks for the cheapest ways to watch the paid-for games.

What channels will the remaining games be shown on?

At the moment, the plan is for games to be shown on the following channels:

  • Amazon Prime (four free Premier League games). Although you normally need to pay for Amazon Prime (after a free trial), Amazon has confirmed you won't need any kind of membership to watch these matches, so they'll be free-to-air.

  • BBC (four 'free' Premier League games and four FA Cup games, including the final). These will be shown live on the BBC for 'free'.

  • BT Sport (20 paid-for Premier League games and four FA Cup games – it'll also show the final). All the games on BT Sport will only be available to BT Sport customers.

  • Sky Sports (25 free Premier League games, 39 paid-for Premier League games). Sky will be showing 64 Premier League games in total, but 25 of these will be shown free-to-air on Sky's Pick channel, available on Freeview.
