The Premier League kicked off this Friday, August 5 and here you can follow all the matches and results and also find out the schedule and broadcasting channels. Manchester City, reigning champions, will kick off the season on Sunday (15H30 GMT) against West Ham, a tough opponent that finished 7th last season.
Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking to get off to a flying start and put last Saturday’s 3-1 Community Shield defeat to Liverpool behind them as quickly as possible. All eyes will be on the Sky Blues’ latest big signing, Norwegian striker Erling Haaland.
Jurgen Klopp’s team also traveled to London this weekend to face Fulham on Saturday (2-2 draw). Uruguayan Darwin Nunez, a newcomer to the ‘Reds’ ranks, repeated the good sensations he left last Saturday against City, scoring a goal and providing an assist for Salah.
In addition to Haaland and Nunez, another attacker who will be in the spotlight will be Brazilian Gabriel Jesus, signed in this market by Arsenal and who has started a scoring streak in pre-season games with the ‘Gunners’. The North London side kicked off the 2022/23 season on Friday at Crystal Palace. It was a 2-0 victory.
Conte’s Spurs opened the season at Tottenham Stadium on Saturday against Southampton (4-1 win), while Chelsea will travel to Everton’s stadium hours later (16h30 GMT). Manchester United, still pending the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, will host Brighton on Sunday (13h00 GMT).
UK television broadcasting plans for the 2022/23 Premier League season
The 2022/23 Premier League season will be quite interesting, as the arrival of the first World Cup to be held in winter gets things started earlier. It will also take a break in the middle for six weeks.
As in previous years, live matches in the UK will be split between Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video.
That means 128 matches will be screened by Sky, more than 50 by BT and 20 by Amazon. The BBC will once again broadcast highlights on Match of the Day.
There will be no free-to-air matches on TV this season.
It is worth noting that, as last year, Sky Sports and BT Sport will broadcast the matches in 4K HDR. Sky Q customers with compatible boxes and those with Sky Glass will be able to watch Sky’s live matches in both Ultra HD and HLG HDR.
BT TV customers will be able to watch BT Sport matches in 4K HDR. As will those with a BT Sport Ultimate subscription and a compatible games console or mobile device.
Premier League on Sky and Now
Sky will show the vast majority of upcoming matches on its Sky Sports channels, available via Sky Glass, Sky Q (and older + boxes) plus the Now streaming service.
The matches will be available in UHD HDR and with Dolby Atmos on compatible Sky Q boxes and Sky Glass TVs. Now, will show them in up to 1080p with 5.1 sound (with a Boost add-on).
Sky Sports is also available through Virgin Media and BT TV.

The Premier League on Amazon Prime
Amazon will show 20 matches this season in two match windows. As in the last two seasons, you will be able to watch the matches in replay afterward.
It is likely that some will be in 4K HDR, although we do not yet know exactly which matches the streaming service will offer.
Premier League on Virgin Media
Virgin Media introduced a Bigger+Sports package in recent years, which costs £65 a month for new customers. For that, you’ll get broadband, TV and all Sky Sports channels in HD, as well as BT Sport in HD and 4K Ultra HD.
