7 Ways to Stream the Premier League Online for 2016/17
This article was originally published on July 14 2016 and has been updated with two more ways to watch the Premier League.
As the seasons roll by, the worlds greatest sport (in my opinion) gets more and more options to enable you to watch it online, whether it be on your computer, phone or tablet. If you have never been to UnlockWorldTV before, you might want to also check out the Ultimate Guide To Watching the Premier League Online which is here –>
Here is a quick run down of some of the options available to you to stream the Premier League Online
1) Hotstar (Formerly Star Sports) (India)
If you are on a budget then Hotstar (formerly Starsports) is the one for you because it is about $3 a month! Thats right. Stream the Premier League online for free on any device. As long as you can live with that then you can watch all 380 premier league games on iPhone, android, Apple TV or on your PC or telly box! Remember TV’s.
Ive tied and tested a number of services with Hotstar (Star Sports) as you can see in my reviews. There are combination of VPNs and DNS services. Thee days VPN service providers have pretty reliable servers in India or Pakistan, and to be sure you can get a trial before you commit.
2) BeIN Sports (MENA)
BeIN Sports is a United Arab Emirates based provider owned by AL Jazeera. It has a presence in mainland Europe and the USA too. However, the Premier League TV Rights in the middle east offer great value for money
Unlike Star Sports where you can sign up for “Only Football” or “All sports”. BeIN Sports offers simple packages that are available both monthly and annually. A subscription gets you all their channels which are fantastic in HD quality with a great looking app too.
It costs $200 maximum and you can Stream the Premier League online. It includes all 380 English Premier League games in HD on your iPad, iPhone, Android tablet and a host of other devices too. BeINs new pricing structure looks like this.
You have to choose your subscription type, as of the time of writing you have a few options, All channels monthly $20 per month, All channels annually $200, Sport channels $15 a month or Sport Channels Annually $150
Here are my top VPN and DNS picks for BeIN Sports
3) Eleven Sports (Taiwan)
Remember Premier League Pass. The unsung hero of Premier League streaming. Its killer feature WAS of course blinding HD quality over four, yes four screens. However, it lost the rights in the New Zealand, Philippines and Taiwan region, only to leave the entire area on the verge of having no official broadcaster. However, it has literally just been replaced with Taiwan’s Eleven Sports. And here is the good news. an Annual Pass will let you Stream the Premier League online for less than £17 British pounds. Bearing in mind the pound isn’t worth a crap any more thats a great deal! in USD which is more representative of the world wide price it is $21.45. Wow.
Much like BeIn Sports you subscribe to a multitude of events and not just the premier league. This is a brand new and sure to be popular option!! It will net you 6 games a week minimum including 3 3pm games.
Pro Tip: If you are in Singapore, switch to the Taiwanese site with a VPN for this price otherwise you must pay $19.90 per month!!
So far I have only tested this with Express VPN which worked great. I will do more research before recommending any other providers and I will keep this post up to date. So bookmark it.
4) Sportsnet (Canada)
SportsNet is relatively new to online streaming and absolutely new to Premier League Streaming. However with good pedigree and reasonable pricing this is certainly one to watch.
I wrote about this recently in
It costs around £13 a month or $25 CAD and shows lots of sports including Baseball, Hockey and Basketball. All Major VPN providers have Canadian servers and Canada is a pretty decent are for the providers themselves so reliability is a non issue for VPN servers. Take your pick of providers. Here are my favourites VPN and DNS services for SportsNet
5) Now TV (UK)
See, now its easy to overlook NowTV, the native UK option. However, there is one reason only NOT to use them and that is if you want to watch 3pm kick offs. There is a blackout int he UK of all football at this time. However, for those strapped for time unlikely to watch at those times, or even the casual user who doesn’t want any type of contract then its actually pretty good.
Further, this is THE best option if you want to watch the Premier League on your PS3, PS4 or Xbox 360 / ONE. It also has a Roku app alongside the usual suspects for phones and tablets. In short, it is VERY well supported.
Pricing is a little like wall street though. Its expensive at full price unless you use it only occasionally. But most of the time you can get good offers, even if it means buying a new specialised No TV box, which itself is a rebadged Roku (with the ability to side load plex no less).
This service is well supported by both VPN and DNS. But I recommend DNS for Now TV specifically because of the sheer number of devices you can use it on. This just adds that extra bit of flexibility
On 9th February 2017, Fubo.Tv launched its beta to grant access to a new lineup of sports content, and its not just football either. But what they have added is access to Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, NBC and NBCSN which will allow for access to live Premier League action. Best of all its a digital only subscription and you can get it
here. If you have visited UnlockWorldTV before you may have see the access guide, but here it is again for anyone that hasn’t.
7) Eurosport (Romania)
Surprised to see Eurosport on here? Me too. I completely missed this option. SO Eurosport traditionally does not cater to the Premier League, or indeed big league soccer in general. However, that is to underestimate its parent company (discovery channel owners!) and there absolutely ubiquity across the world of global broadcasting. It seems Eurosport, in Romania at least, has bagged the Premier League rights. The good news, is that much like Netflix, you can sign up anywhere in the world, but the content you see is based on where you are when you log in.
There is one slight restriction that i have been unable to test, and that is, that the games are available in English, but only via a computer. I have read that the language option is unavailable in app. I haven’t confirmed this yet but I will do as soon as I can. Nevertheless, you can currently pick up a Eurosport subscription for only £19.99 for an entire year! thats not bad however you slice it
And so there you have it. Seven ways to stream the premier league online. All of them legal, all of them available on many many devices, all in HD, and all with no contractual commitments. I hope you have found this post helpful. If you have, please share it with your friends.
