You don’t need an expensive Sky subscription, streaming box or smart TV to watch Premier League football from the comfort of your home.
Anyone with a PlayStation 4 or PS5 can stream live football through their console, just by downloading one or two apps.
The majority of Premier League football matches are streamed live on Sky Sports, alongside matches from the Football League and other European divisions.
If you want to watch the action unfold live, simply head to the TV / Video section of your PS4 and PS5 dashboards.
Once you have entered the App Store, you can download the NOW TV app for free.
If you already have an account, you can log in with your username and password to access Entertainment, Movies or Sports packs. You can also create an account on the NOW TV website.
As NOW TV does not require a subscription, users can purchase daily or monthly passes for all Sky Sports channels.
Monthly passes are currently offered for just £ 24.99, and you can cancel at any time.
It is also worth checking your emails, as NOW TV regularly sends customers personalized offers.
As an added bonus, NOW TV customers can watch the action on cellphones and tablets, giving you additional options.
Of course, the biggest problem right now is actually getting your hands on a PS5 console.
While UK restockings have been fairly stable, PlayStation 5 consoles continue to sell out almost instantly.
If you’re looking to buy a PlayStation 5 but haven’t had much luck so far, check out the Express Online buying tips below.
PlayStation 5 buying tips when buying on GAME (via PS5 UK stock) ….
• Familiarize yourself with the bundles, so you know which to target first: Dark bundles are easier to get, standalone ones almost impossible. [GAME]
• When you are alerted, click on the first batch of your choice as quickly as possible, this will put you in the queue. [GAME]
• If it indicates that it failed during the payment attempt, it means that the bundle is now OOS. So go back to the packages and choose another one. [GAME]
• Checking too too quickly will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush. If this happens, wait a bit and then try again. [GAME]
General PlayStation 5 Shopping Tips …
