Premier League on Peacock pros and cons

Pros

  • Inexpensive pricing
  • Around 175 Premier League matches per season
  • Large on-demand library of TV shows and movies

Cons

  • Lackluster interface
  • Limited original content

Is Peacock worth it for Premier League fans?

Since the Premier League flocked to Peacock, there’s no denying that the streaming service is essential for Premier League fans. Slightly fewer than half of all 380 Premier League games stream exclusively on Peacock. Without it, you’ll simply miss out on most of your favorite club’s games—especially if you support a team that regularly finds itself situated in the bottom half of the league table.

Apart from live games, Peacock also allows you to watch every Premier League game on demand for up to 30 days—even if the game didn’t originally stream live on the service. That gives you ample time to study each game before you unexpectedly find yourself coaching an English soccer team of your own in the style of Ted Lasso.

While the game-viewing experience on Peacock is not outstanding, it gets the job done if you have a strong internet connection and keep your device updated. Do we wish there were in-game statistical overlays and ways to toggle commentary on and off? Definitely. But for as low as $4.99 a month, we won’t give Peacock a sending off.

Premier League content on Peacock

Peacock is stacked when it comes to Premier League content. Not only does Peacock have around 175 live Premier League games, but it also provides on-demand access to all 380 league matchups each season. Replays of games that don’t originally stream live on Peacock become available 24 hours after the match ends and are available to stream for 30 days.

Outside of actual games, Peacock is also home to Premier League studio shows, highlights, and docuseries. There’s even a 24/7 live channel called Premier League TV that anyone can access for free with a basic Peacock subscription.

What’s great about Premier League TV is that it airs a mixture of US- and UK-produced content. This means you’ll get the best of both worlds with NBC Sports and Sky Sports programming. We particularly enjoy The Kelly & Wrighty Show, which features presenter Kelly Cates and Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

Other options for watching the Premier League

Because of NBCUniversal’s commitment to its linear channels, you can still catch many Premier League games on traditional TV.

Every match that’s not exclusively streaming on Peacock will air on either NBC, USA Network, or CNBC for English-language coverage, with Spanish-language coverage split between Telemundo and Universo.

Most cable, satellite, and live TV streaming services offer these traditional channels. But you may need to pay for a higher-tiered plan or add-on to get access to CNBC, Telemundo, and Universo.

Pro tip: Every Premier League game that airs on NBC or Telemundo will stream simultaneously on Peacock for premium subscribers.

Hulu + Live TV (starting at $69.99 a month) is our favorite provider for watching the Premier League. The live TV streaming service offers every traditional NBCUniversal channel and even includes ESPN+ at no extra cost. The reason why that’s important for Premier League fans is because ESPN+ is home to the FA Cup and the EFL Championship, the division of English soccer that sits just below the Premier League.

fuboTV is also a great live TV streaming service for watching soccer. Its higher-tiered plans cost more than Hulu + Live TV, but you’ll get more sports channels that cover many foreign soccer leagues.

If you prefer a cable TV plan with internet bundling options, we recommend checking out Cox, Spectrum, or Xfinity. The three services aren’t widely available nationwide, but at least one of them likely serves your home turf. They offer every channel needed for watching Premier League matches, and they even have plans that come with free subscriptions to Peacock Premium.

Final take

Peacock is an essential part of watching the Premier League in the US. While many games still air on traditional TV channels like NBC, USA Network, and CNBC, all additional games stream exclusively on Peacock. That’s especially important when it comes to the final day of the season, where all 20 Premier League teams play at the same time.

To get live Premier League games on Peacock, you’ll need to subscribe to one of its premium plans—which start as low as $4.99 a month. That’s a great deal considering the thousands of movies and TV shows included. Plus, you’ll also have live access to other high-profile leagues like MLB, NFL, Premiership Rugby, and WWE.
