Today (Wednesday, June 17), Premier League 2019-20 games resume play, with Aston Villa vs Sheffield United at 1 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. local BST time) and Man City vs Arsenal at 3:15 p.m. Eastern (8:15 p.m. local BST time).
We're hours away from Premier League live streams! Yes, empty arena footie may look odd (as we've seen in La Liga and Coppa Italia), but any sports is better than none at this rate, by a wide, wide margin (especially with rumors abounding about the NBA possibly not finishing its season this year).
That means those of us in the U.S. get to indulge in daytime Premier League games, with all eyes on Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool squad looking to get the title for the first time in 30 years (which is how long it feels like since the NBA shut down).

Here's how to watch Premier League 2019-20 season fixtures, including help getting your live stream if you're far from home.
2019-2020 Premier League live stream start times
The big news about this season of Premier League action is that we'll be treated to games on a daily basis. And most days will have multiple games, with up to 4 per day. Yes, while it feels like forever ago that the 2019-2020 Premier League season began with Liverpool blasting Norwich 4-1, we're back.
Here's the list of when to expect games. The times are all in Eastern, so subtract 3 hours for the west coast starts or add 5 hours for UK start times.
- Sundays: 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m.
- Mondays: 3 p.m.
- Tuesdays: 1 p.m., 3 p.m.
- Wednesday: 1 p.m., 3 p.m.
- Thursdays: 1 p.m., 3 p.m.
- Fridays: 3 p.m.
- Saturdays: 7:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3 p.m.
Typically, matches would mostly take place on Saturday and Sunday, but there's this whole matter of making up for lost time. Fun, right? We do not envy the players, at all. All 92 of the remaining fixtures will be played, and we just hope they're properly hydrated.

How can I use a VPN to watch the 2019-2020 Premier League?
What if, you're asking yourself, you're away from home during (or through to the end) of the August 9 finale of the Premier League season? Well, travel and an inability to fly home don't need to stop you, as you can always turn to a virtual private network, or VPN. With a VPN in place, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home country, letting you access the same streaming services, even if you're in another region.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.
ExpressVPN (opens in new tab): We think the speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. There's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.
How can I watch Premier League live in the US?
NBC holds the U.S. rights for Premier League, but Americans will get some changes to the ways to watch Premier League games this half of the season. While some games will still be on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), others will be on Peacock and there's also Premier League Pass (opens in new tab) ($9.99) to contend with.
Looking at NBC's schedule (opens in new tab), you can see that the majority of the games are on NBCSN. Rare games will be shown on the NBC broadcast network, NBC Sports Gold's Premier League Pass or Peacock.
How can I watch Premier League live in the UK?
In the UK, Sky Sports (opens in new tab) and BT Sport used to split control of the action, pushing people to pay for access. This year, as has proven the case every day, is different.
Sky, BT, and Amazon Prime will share the games this season, instead. Plus, the BBC will have four fixtures, while we're waiting for more from Amazon, which has only announced the Monday, June 29 game of Crystal Palace v Burnley. BT is expected to keep its games behind the paywall.
How can I watch Premier League live in Canada?
Canadians have it best, it seems, as all they need to do is get in DaZone, as they're only watching Premier League live streams on DAZN this summer. Yes, sports streamers DAZN (opens in new tab) have taken all of the rest of this season's rights in Canada from SPortsNet and TSN.
This is so good because new members get a 1-month free trial of DAZN (opens in new tab), which will get you through more than half of the season. It costs $20 per month thereafter. DAZN, if you're unfamiliar, has apps on every single streaming platform there is.
Canadians stuck abroad that still want their low-price alternative can use a VPN to trick their streaming device to thinking it's back in the great white north.
