BT Sport has the rights to over fifty 2021/22 Premier League football games, including all the midweek fixtures from Tuesday to Thursday this week. That begins with tonight's Norwich vs Aston Villa  at 7.45pm and includes Arsenal vs West Ham, Liverpool vs Newcastle, Chelsea vs Everton and fixtures over Christmas and the New Year. The good news is that you don't have to be a BT subscriber. UK fans can stream BT Sport games for as little as £25 a month with the contract-free BT Sport Monthly Pass.

The BT Sport Monthly Pass provides instant access to all of BT's sports channels, and remember that you can still use your BT Sport access when travelling outside a UK by using a VPN.

BT Sport Monthly Pass £25

Get full access to all the BT Sport channels for 30 days for just £25. Available to non-BT customers too and no contract required.

Soccer fans in the US do not have access Premier League fixtures on BT Sport, of course. Instead US viewers can catch top-flight games on NBC through the company's NBC Sports Network, Peacock TV and USA Networks cable channel too.  Peacock requires its own subscription (new users get a free 7-day trial), while the other channels are available on cable cutting services such as Sling TV and FuboTV which also offer free trials.

Remember: if you're a Peacock, Sling, FuboTV or BT Sport cuscomter, you can always use a VPN to watch your Premier football games from the US, Australia, UK or wherever else you happen to be.

Read on for details of all the 2021-22 BT Sport football fixtures, and how to watch them from anywhere.

BT Sport has the rights to 52 2021/22 Premier League football matches in the UK, including several huge clashes over the Christmas and the New Year period.  

A BT Sport Monthly Pass costs just £25 a month in the UK, making it one of the cheapest ways to watch Premier League football without signing a long-term contract.

This UK-only pass gets you full access to all the BT Sport channels for a simple monthly fee. Enjoy the English Premier League, Champions League and more through the BT Sport app on smart TVs, mobiles, tablets, games consoles, Chromecast or through the BT Sport website. No contract, no fuss.

Already have BT TV and BT broadband? You can add BT Sport to your package for only £15 a month (plus a £20 joining fee).

Virgin Media customers can watch the football when available by subscribing to BT Sport as desired. Virgin Media’s Bigger + Sports bundle covers both Sky and BT televised games.

The other option for BT customers is to upgrade their TV package to include the sports channels. You can add all of the BT Sport channels for just £15 per month. For the Big Bundle, which includes all the Sky Sports too, it's £40 per month – more expensive, granted, but you'll never miss a match again.

Watch the BT Sport football live streams from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to BT Sport, you won't be able to access your Premier League football streams when outside the UK. BT will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access when travelling away from home.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device, enabling you to access geo-blocked websites and save money.

ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch streams on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up.


Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For BT Sport games, choose 'UK' for BT Sport.

3. Then head over to BT Sport on your browser or device and enjoy the BT Sport Premier League live streams.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
