How to cut costs on television sports packages while continuing to watch the major Premier League matches

This weekend marks the return of the Premier League, and fans are getting their fantasy football teams ready and renewing their sports TV subscriptions in a hurry.

But the return of the season is particularly expensive for supporters of newly promoted Premier League teams, who pay an average of three times more per game to watch their teams compete on live television.

As their teams are anticipated to receive the most screen time this season, fans of the top four teams are likely to be getting the most value for their money when it comes to their sports TV subscriptions.

A quarter of Britons with a sports package believe it to be the most crucial aspect of their TV package, according to the most recent research by comparison website Uswitch.

One in seven subscribers are considering canceling this season in order to save money because it can be expensive to subscribe to all live sports channels.

According to the study, watching a Premier League team throughout the season on Sky Sports, BT Sport, and Amazon Prime Video costs an average of £21.93 per televised match.

Based on how frequently each team’s games are televised, supporters of Bournemouth, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest — the three newly promoted sides — will nevertheless pay £35.67 per game to watch their favorite team.

Newly promoted clubs from the Championship typically receive fewer televised fixtures than more seasoned Premier League teams, so their fans must pay more per game to watch them in action.

The least expensive tickets costing an average of £10.44 per game will be purchased by supporters of Arsenal, Liverpool, and last year’s champions Manchester City.

With an additional 11 games broadcast on average as the teams compete in the Champions or Europa League, their clubs host the most Premier League matches that are televised.

With a guaranteed six additional live fixtures from the Europa League, and double that if they make it to the final, Arsenal, who had 29 games televised in the Premier League last season, are expected to get the most TV appearances this season.

A whopping 1.6 million football-loving households are reportedly signing up for both Sky Sports and BT Sport ahead of the season. Approximately 6.5 million Brits, or 45% of all pay-TV subscribers, have a sports package.

This season, 52 out of the 380 Premier League games as well as the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League will only be broadcast on BT Sport.
