As a passionate soccer fan and cord-cutting expert, I‘m regularly asked how to watch Premier League games online – especially how to live stream matches on devices like Amazon Fire TV Stick and Fire TV.
With the new 2022-23 season underway, interest in the Premier League has exploded here in the US. And for good reason! Premier League features many of the world‘s top clubs and players competing in the most-watched soccer league on the planet.
Viewership numbers illustrate just how popular the Premier League has become stateside:
NBC Sports averaged 549,000 viewers per match last season – a 95% increase since they acquired Premier League rights in 2013.
Online streaming viewership is also rising rapidly, with over 500,000 fans streaming at least one Premier League game last season via Peacock.
Factoring Spanish language broadcasts on Telemundo, total average Premier League viewership in the USA touched nearly 1 million per match last season.
But geographic restrictions can make accessing Premier League streams tricky, especially if you want to watch games live. That‘s where using a good VPN becomes essential.
In this guide, I‘ll explain multiple tested methods for Americans to live stream Premier League action – either free or paid options. I‘ll also provide special tips to watch Premier League soccer on Firestick and Fire TV devices.
Let‘s get started!
Using a VPN to Stream Premier League
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is the cornerstone for accessing Premier League if you‘re based outside the UK.
Here‘s how it helps:
Bypasses Geographic Blocks – VPN encrypts your traffic and routes it through remote servers in different countries. This allows you to bypass geo-blocks and location restrictions on streaming platforms.
Enhances Streaming Performance – Connecting to servers close to the streaming host gives faster, more reliable connections with less buffering.
Enhanced Privacy – VPN mast your IP address and online identity, preventing snooping by hackers, ISPs or governments.
For Premier League streaming, you‘ll want to connect through a VPN server based in the UK to unlock games on Sky Sports, BT Sport and other English platforms.
I recommend Surfshark VPN for streaming due to its blazing connection speeds, unlimited device support and low pricing. Surfshark also offers dedicated streaming-optimized servers to deliver the best performance.
Follow these simple steps to setup Surfshark on your Firestick or Fire TV:
- Sign up for a Surfshark account and download the Fire TV app
- Launch Surfshark app on your device and login
- Select a server in the UK and click Connect
- You can now access Premier League streams from anywhere
Surfshark offers a 30 day money back guarantee, so you can try it risk-free.

Now let‘s look at the best platforms to stream Premier League games while using a VPN in the USA.
How to Stream Premier League in USA (Legal Options)
Below are the top services soccer fans in the US can use to watch Premier League matches live and on-demand:
As NBC‘s exclusive streaming home for Premier League in the USA, Peacock is a must-have for soccer fans.
Peacock will stream at least 175 games this season as part of their rights agreement with the Premier League. Many matches not shown on TV will be available exclusively on Peacock.
Their starting Premium plan costs just $4.99/month making it very affordable. You can stream Peacock via web browser, mobile apps or devices like Firestick, Roku and Apple TV.
This popular live TV streaming service includes both NBCSN and USA Network, which will combine to air over 150 Premier League games this season.
fuboTV‘s base plan is pricier at $69.99/month, but well worth it for soccer fanatics to ensure they get all nationally televised matches across NBC, USA Network, Telemundo and more.
fuboTV also offers a free 7-day trial to test the service across devices.
Another good live TV streaming option that carries NBC, NBCSN, USA Network for Premier League games.
Plans start at $64.99/month after a free trial period. Apps available for Firestick, Apple TV, Smart TVs and more.
Hulu + Live TV
Hulu‘s live TV service also provides streaming access to NBC and NBCSN for Premier League.
Pricing is $69.99/month, but Hulu does offer a huge on-demand catalog of TV shows and movies. Worth checking out with their free trial.
Sling‘s Blue plan includes NBC and USA Network for around $35/month.
Can combine with their Sports Extra add-on ($11/month) to also get NBCSN.
Available on most streaming devices.
This live TV streaming service from DirecTV also carries NBC, USA Network and NBCSN to cover Premier League games.
Monthly pricing for their entry level plan is $69.99/month after the free trial.
(Optional) Using VPN to Access UK Streaming Sites
While the services above should have you covered for Premier League games broadcast in the USA, some matches may air exclusively on UK platforms like:
- Sky Sports
- BT Sport
- Amazon Prime Video
By connecting your Firestick or other device to a UK VPN server, you can also directly access these UK streaming services to watch every Premier League match live.
Here‘s a quick rundown:
Sky Sports – Airs majority of Premier League games exclusively for Sky TV subscribers in the UK & Ireland. Accessible via Sky Go app.
BT Sport – UK pay TV channel with rights to air 52 Premier League matches this season. Streaming available on BT Sport app/website.
Amazon Prime Video – Selected games only for Prime members in UK/Ireland. Need Prime subscription and VPN.
So if you notice any match not available through your USA streaming provider, connect via VPN and check the UK network broadcasting that game.
Setting Expectations – Free Streaming vs Official Sources
While there are "free" streaming sites that offer Premier League games, I don‘t recommended them.
These free streaming platforms are not authorized Premier League partners. The streams are often laggy or get taken down altogether.
Free streams pose privacy risks too. Without encryption, your IP address and streaming activity can be logged and tracked.
Stick to reputable paid services combined with a VPN for best results. It‘s worth the minor investment to enjoy stable, high-quality Premier League live streams that protect your data.
Now let‘s recap the key takeaways…
Summary – How to Stream Premier League Soccer on Firestick & Fire TV
Sign up for a premium VPN like Surfshark to bypass geographic restrictions.
Install the VPN app on your Amazon Fire TV device and connect to a UK server.
Subscribe to Peacock Premium ($4.99/month) to stream exclusive EPL matches live or on-demand.
Use a live TV streaming service like fuboTV or YouTube TV to watch games on NBC, USA Network & more.
For additional UK coverage, access Sky Sports, BT Sport or Prime Video via VPN.
Avoid free streaming sites and only use official sources for best quality and privacy.
