Six months free Sky Sport
Sky is offering six months free Sky Sports for anyone who buys a Sky Glass TV.

It'll cost £14 a month for the first three months and then rises to £40 a month on an 18-month contract.

These TV giveaways offer huge savings for fans who want to watch all fixtures from their sofa, but which of these options offers the cheapest overall deal for Premier League fans? Most sport TV packages are 12-month minimum contracts (Prime Video and NOW are the exceptions) so it’s vital fans get the best offer to see them through to the end of this 23/24 Premier League season.
We’ve rounded up the best places to watch the Premier League below.
For the first time ever Sky Sports is showing five of the opening-round fixtures and has the most live matches on its timetable for this season. As well as the Premier League its footie coverage includes the Scottish Premiership and the FA Women’s Super League.
So how can you watch it? And as seen on the deal above, any Sky Glass shoppers can get six months free Sky Sports if they buy a Sky Glass TV. And there's only a £10 upfront fee. Prices start at £14 a month for the 43-inch screen, £19 a month for the 55-inch or £24 a month for the biggest 65-inch TV.
If you're not looking to add another smart TV to your home Sky shoppers could also make the most of its Sky’s Entertainment + Netflix bundle paired with its Sky Sports. It's currently cut to £20 for the first month (then rises to £51 a month).
The bundle breaks down into two contracts, which both happen to be on offer. Sky Entertainment + Netflix now £0 for the first month and £26 from month two. And the Sky Sport add on at £20 for the first month and £25 from month two.
Customers will pay £51 total each month for the remaining 17 months of the plan.
Viewers can also add on TNT Sports channels to their plan for an extra £30 a month (currently on offer at £28 for the first month) but as you’ll see from our next provider this is not the cheapest way to add TNT Sports channels.
Moving onto Virgin, a network which includes Sky’s Sports channels in many of its TV plans, but that’s not all.
The provider has just added the newly rebranded TNT Sport (the former BT Sport) to one of its main sport packages, which fans can take out from £65 a month. Making it a cheaper option compared to Sky’s £81 total price for adding TNT to its Sport package.
Nearly all fixtures are on the cards with Virgin Media's M250 Bigger + Sports HD bundle as it includes all Sky Sports channels, TNT Sports and Eurosport. Not to mention its inclusive M250 broadband, unlimited landline calls and TV 360 box.
Other Virgin Media plans to watch The Premier League:
Bigger Bundle + Sports: 18-month contract at £65 per monthIncludes M250 broadband, Sky Sports HD, TNT Sport, 200 channels plus Talk Weekends.
Biggest TV Bundle: 18-month contract at £87 per monthIncludes M350 broadband, Sky Sports, Sky Cinema HD, 210 channels plus Talk Weekends and Netflix.
Ultimate Volt Bundle: 18-month contract at £85 per monthIncludes Gig1 broadband, Sky Cinema HD, Sky Sports HD, 230 channels, Netflix and an unlimited SIM.

The new channel is on the block. Well not entirely, but it may not sound familiar to many as it takes over from the well-known BT Sport. We’ve seen rival providers like Sky and Virgin add it to their own sports plans, but what does it offer for viewers who go directly to the provider itself?
The provider’s Premier League fixtures are slightly more limited compared to rivals but the catch does mean prices are slightly less each month.
TNT is set to show more than 50 live matches throughout the next season as well as highlights or ‘highflyer’ games from the last season. There’s also UEFA Champions League, Europa Conference League and Europa League thrown into the mix too (to name a few).
You can see the full list of fixtures being shown on TNT here. Now, let’s move on to the prices.
One of the better ‘value for money’ plans we’ve seen is its Sport for £12 a month plan, which lets viewers pick up to four TNT Sports channels. The Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Premiership rugby are also included as well as Eurosport. But there is a time limit on this price.
Viewers are locked into an 18-month contract and have until August 17, 2023 to buy it before the price rises to £18 a month.
Other TNT Sport packages to take a look at:

Amazon Prime Video
Moving onto streaming subscriptions, which may be a preferred choice for those who don’t want to get tied into a multi-year-long contract.
If you’ve got an existing Prime Video membership then it’s good news for you as the live games are included in the usual plan. If you are yet to add Prime to your monthly streaming content you can do so for £8.99 a month.

What's the cheapest way to watch the Premier League at home?
If you're looking to upgrade to a new TV then the Sky Glass deal is for you as you will get free six months of sports channels as well as a shiny new TV for your home.
If you need to switch to a new broadband provider then we'd reccomed looking at TalkTalk and make the most of its current NOW Sports offer.
For everyone else, we'd say the Sky Stream + Sky Sports bundle deal is a top option too (it may just be our winner) as the £20 price is half of the monthly NOW Sky Sports pass and there's Netflix thown in too.
Virgin Media Stream is the cheapest way to watch Sky Sports, with the channels included in full HD and customers can pause and rewind key moments live. Sky also offers the ability to watch Sky Sports through their new Sky Stream service on a more flexible basis, and customers can save money by bundling Sky broadband.What is the cheapest way to get Premier League football? ›
