How to watch TV online

If you have not access to a TV, but you have your laptop and an Internet connection then you may watch the matches online. There are several solutions to watch a TV channels online on your computer, but the one that I recommend is by using SopCast, a free and simple application.

Here is what you have to do: firstly, download the latest version of Sopcast here. After completing the installation, start the application, login as Anouymous and start looking for the desired channel in the Live Channel tab. Most likely you will find a channel that broadcasts English Premier League matches. The downside of this approach is that you may get a poor transmission with a possible interruptions.

The good news is that there are better options, even though they are not free.

English Premier League Internet broadcasters

Do you plan to watch most of the games on your computer or mobile device? Then you need access to premium streaming sites. You may find below several Internet broadcasters for English Premier League 2014-2015 season (the list is not complete, so, if you need other channel, feel free to share them in the comments section):

Country Language Website Notes
United Kingdom United Kingdom English Sky Sports Available to Sky TV and Sky Go clients.
United States United States English NBCSports Content is available in HD. Sign-up required. Only available in US and U.S. Territories.
Australia Australia English Fox Sports Live and on demand. Subscription needed. Only available for Australian users.
Canada Canada English Sportsnet Subscription based. Only available in Canada.
France France French Canal + Only available in France.
Sweden Sweden Swedish Viasat Paid subscription needed. Only available in Sweden.

If you are located in one of these countries you may simply pay for the subscription and watch the English Premier League matches on your laptop or mobile device.

Do you have a subscription to one a streaming service and you are travelling to a country where the access is restricted? Then you need a VPN or DNS service to bypass the restrictions.

Bypass geo-restrictions by using a VPN or SmartDNS service

If you are located in a country where English Premier League is not streamed on the Internet you may still get access to certain sites using VPN or SmartDNS services. Basically, what you need is a solution to bypass the restriction imposed by the streaming sites.

For example, if you want to watch Canal+ streaming you need to change your visible IP address to one from France.

There are two main options to complete the task: VPN and DNS services. There are plenty of such services on the market (simply take a google search), but I am going to recommend you several that I personally tested:

Name Service Type Unblocks Price
HideMyAss VPN Sky Go, NBC Sports, Canal+, Fox Sports, Viasat, Sportsnet $11.52/month
ibVPN VPN and DNS Sky Go, NBC Sports, Canal+, Fox Sports, Viasat, Sportsnet $7.95/month
PureVPN VPN Sky Go, NBC Sports, Canal+, Fox Sports, Viasat, Sportsnet $9.95/month
Unblock-Us DNS Sky Go, NBC Sports, Fox Sports $4.99/month

All these services provide easy to install apps (for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android) in order to be able to quickly be able to access the streaming sites. ibVPN even offers 6-hour trial to test their service, enough to watch one or two matches for free.

Enjoy!
