How to Watch 2022-23 English Premier League Opening Weekend Live for Free Without Cable

Stephen Silver

The 2022-23 English Premier League season is set to get underway a couple of weeks earlier than usual thanks to this year’s World Cup taking place in the winter rather than the summer. NBCUniversal once again holds the rights to the league in the U.S. meaning that matches will be spread across multiple outlets all season. The action kicks off on Friday, Aug. 5 at 3 p.m. ET as Arsenal takes on Crystal Palace. You can stream it live with a 5-Day Free Trial of DIRECTV STREAM.

About The 2022-23 English Premier League Opening Weekend

The English Premier League is the top-flight soccer league in England and perhaps the best league in the world. Consisting of 20 clubs, the season typically runs from August through May with breaks for international play mixed in. This year, the three new clubs in the league are Fulham, Bournemouth, and Nottingham Forest.

Manchester City is the league’s defending champion, while Liverpool came in second in 2021-22 with Chelsea in third.
