Sky Sports free to air: How to watch Premier League for free – Do you need a subscription?

Premier League football is back and there are almost 100 matches to keep us entertained over the next two months. But with fans not able to make it to the games in person, supporters will have to rely on watching the matches on TV or online. Express Sport has all the details on how to watch the free-to-air games on Sky Sports.

Sky TV users witnessed the exciting return of the Premier League on Wednesday as Aston Villa took on Sheffield United in a 0-0 draw, followed by Manchester City vs Arsenal which ended 3-0. 

Sky Sports will be showing 64 of the remaining Premier League fixtures, with several huge fixtures lined up for you TV screens this summer.

However, there are also some 25 Premier League games remaining that Sky will show for free – including this weekend’s blockbuster Merseyside derby, as Liverpool and Everton go head to head.

The remaining free-to-air fixtures will be shared between Amazon Prime and the BBC, with BT Sport taking up the rest of the paid for fixtures.

Existing Sky Sports customers can stream the events through the Sky Go app.

If you’re planning on signing up, the firm is offering access to its Premier League and Football channels on an £18-per-month deal.

For those without a subscription, NOW TV are currently offering fans a Sky Sports pass at £25-a-month for the next three months.

But what about the free to watch matches?
