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

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.

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 – with the league set to return on Wednesday 17 June after an enforced break due to coronavirus, and matches due to be played in empty stadiums – all games will be on TV. We've full details below of how you can see them.

At the moment, we know the fixture schedule up until mid July – see below for the full list of games. One of the biggest games announced for free-to-air TV is Everton vs Liverpool on Sunday 21 June (shown free by Sky Sports), while other big clashes you'll have to pay to watch include Chelsea vs Manchester City on Thursday 25 June (BT Sport) and Manchester City vs Liverpool on Thursday 2 July (Sky Sports).

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.

Plus if you've a season ticket with a Premier League club, it may contact you with details on how to watch the remaining home games for free if you don't have the relevant subscription.
