The Premier League returned last week with a number of games available to watch live on Peacock. After the first week of action that saw wins for Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, as well as a loss for Man City at Spurs, matchweek 2 is shaping up to be another interesting week, and especially on Sunday when Chelsea visit Arsenal.

Similar to last season, watching the English Premier League in the United States is not just as simple as signing up to one service as games are spread out over a number of channels. As a result, those interested in watching as much of the action live will want to consider a Peacock Premium subscription in addition to a live TV subscription. Specifically, a live TV service that offers the NBC family of channels.

However, compared to last season, those only relying on a Peacock subscription to watch live PL games, will be able to watch more live games during the 2021-2022 season without a live TV subscription. When it comes to matchweek 2, there are five games available to stream through Peacock between August 21 and 23, 2021.

Peacock Premier League live games: Aug. 21-23 (all times ET)

  • Liverpool v Burnley (K/O Aug. 21 at 7:30am)
  • Crystal Palace v Brentford (K/O Aug. 21 at 10am)
  • Leeds v Everton (K/O Aug. 21 at 10am)
  • Brighton v Watford ((K/O Aug. 21 at 12:30pm)
  • Southampton v Man Utd (K/O Aug. 22 at 9am)

All of the games available to watch through Peacock this weekend take place on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, anyone looking to watch Leicester City at West Ham on Monday will need a live TV subscription that includes NBCSN. The same goes for Aston Villa v Newcastle on Saturday, as well as Wolves v Spurs, and the big match up between Arsenal and Chelsea on Sunday. If interested in streaming Man City v Norwich City, then USA Network is required. For reference, while the Brighton v Watford game is being shown on Peacock, it will also be available to watch on NBC as well.

As is always the case with Peacock, all of the games taking place between August 21 and 23 will eventually become available to stream through the service’s Premier League Replays feature. However, those matches only become available to watch much later on the same day they are shown on their respective live TV channels.
