How to watch the Premier League without cable 

US residents don't need a cable or satellite TV subscription in order to watch NBC or NBCSN -- or authenticate an account in order to stream the matches on NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app. All of the major live TV streaming services include NBC and NBCSN, and you can use a live TV streaming subscription to log in to NBC Sports livestreams online.

If you live in an area with good reception, you can watch the Premier League games shown on NBC for free just by attaching an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV. 

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.
