The Premier League 2018-19 season is underway.
Widely considered as the biggest football league in the world, watching the games live in the UK or abroad has become easy thanks to Premier League’s extensive coverage across the world.
Needless to say, the EPL is the most popular league in the world, with total attendances of more than 13 million.
When such is the craze to witness some of the best players in the world, it makes it almost impossible not to be able to watch live Premier League matches anywhere in the UK or the US.
Here’s the guideline to how you can watch all the 380 matches in the 2018-19 Premier League online from anywhere in the world.
Watch Premier League online – VPN Live EPL Stream
Premier League have sold TV rights to almost every major country in the world. However, every country has their own subscription-based channels.
With games going digital, football fans can enjoy the games by not only sitting in front of a TV, but also through the channel’s official websites, mobile apps, and via live streaming.
Online streaming is a boon for the Premier League fans. Every international broadcaster shows EPL games live through their official websites or mobile apps.
However, if your country is not showing a big game on the TV – don’t sweat. There is always the option of a VPN service.
For example, in the UK, Sky Sports and BT Sports share the broadcasting rights. However, it can be very expensive. And still the Saturday 3 pm live blackout means, there’s no live football coverage.
Live EPL stream remedy: Try VPN.

Premier League: 2018/19 Contenders
Check out detailed 2018-19 season previews:
Manchester City, the winner of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, are favourites once again to retain the title. Pep Guardiola’s side has bolstered their squad with the addition of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.
Jose Mourinho was left frustrated with the lack of transfer activity this season. The Red Devils haven’t made a great start in the new season, and it could be a bumpy ride for them.
Liverpool are expected to mount a strong title challenge this season after they made some good signings in the summer. Could this finally be their year?
Tottenham failed to sign a single player in the summer transfer window, but Mauricio Pochettino has a star-studded squad. The return of Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose to the first team squad is almost as good as new signings for them.
Chelsea always do well when they don’t have the Champions League to bother about. Maurizio Sarri is a fantastic manager, but he may need time to stamp his authority.
The Arsenal dugout will see a new manager for the first time in a zillion years. Unai Emery is a dynamic, young manager, but he’ll need at least one or two more transfer windows to build the team to his own taste.
