In the beginning stages of this season Man City were struggling and it looked like Liverpool might run away with the English Premier League. What a difference a couple of months make...
This year's season is so bizarre, and so tight, that Man City have won a few matches and -- all of a sudden -- the prospect of anyone else winning the league looks grim.

How to watch the Premier League in the US

The good news: It's relatively easy to watch the Premier League in the US, and you have heaps of options to choose from. We've got an entire post dedicated to watching soccer in the US, but here are the CliffsNotes.

Premier League games are shown on NBC , NBCSN or USA Network. If you have good reception, you can watch Premier League games on NBC for free. Just attach an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV and you should be good to go.

You can also stream the matches on NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app. All of the major live TV streaming services include NBC, NBCSN and USA Network, and you can use a live TV streaming subscription to log in to NBC Sports livestreams online.

Here are some other options.

Peacock offers three tiers: a limited free plan and two Premium plans. The ad-supported Premium plan costs $5 a month, and the ad-free Premium plan costs $10 a month. You need one of the Premium plans to watch Premier League games live and full-game replays, though highlights are available on the free tier. Read our Peacock review.

How to watch the Premier League in Australia 

This is fairly straightforward -- sign up for Optus Sport.

For someone living in Australia, Optus Sport grabbing the rights to the Premier League has been a godsend. No longer do soccer fans have to sign up for an overpriced Foxtel subscription, packed with channels you have no interest in. Now you just pay a monthly fee and have access to practically every Premier League match. You also get Champions League matches as well.
It's essentially Netflix for soccer, and it's awesome. It starts at AU$15 per month.

How to watch the Premier League in the UK

This one's a little more complex. Considering how lucrative the Premier League is in the UK, the TV rights have been split between BT Sport and Sky Sports.
