What’s the cheapest way to watch next season’s Premier League?

Written by:
After a brief summer recess, football fans will be looking forward to next year’s season, but how can they watch it without breaking the bank?

New research from uSwitch says a NOW TV monthly pass is likely to be the cheapest way to watch it, while Sky subscribers face the highest cost to watch their favourite team.

uSwitch said that with Sky Sports hosting the vast majority of games, accessing its football channels will be a priority, and loyal football fans could see an advantage in signing up to Sky on a long-term deal.

Adding BT Sport costs an extra £29.99 a month, on top of the current best Sky Sports subscription, which includes broadband, of £67.50. Over nine months, and including Amazon Prime in December, the whole season comes to £885.40.

BT customers could add Sky Sports channels to their package, with prices starting at £30 a month on top of a cheapest BT subscription of £44.99 – bringing the potential total spend over the season to £682.90.

Dani Warner, TV expert at, said: “These are pricey options, though it is worth noting that BT is the exclusive home of Champions League football. 

“For casual fans, however, NOW TV’s range of Sky Sports passes – daily, weekly or monthly – may prove better value, with prices starting at just £8.99.”

He added that a monthly NOW TV pass at £33.99 can be combined with a subscription to BT Sport’s app for just £10 a month, which, with a month of Amazon Prime, would reduce the total spend for the season to £373.90: “This may prove the best possible value for fans who want to see all of the action without breaking the bank.”
