As the Premier League enters matchweek 3, there are a number of games that will be available to watch live on Peacock over the August 28 and 29 weekend. Last week saw Chelsea take all three points at Arsenal, as well as wins for Man City, West Ham, Liverpool, and Spurs. There’s plenty to look forward to this weekend, with some of the higher profile games including Man City taking on Arsenal and Liverpool hosting Chelsea.

Watching Premier League action in the US can be slightly complicated due to the way the games are spread out over multiple channels. While a live TV subscription will provide access to many of the games shown on NBC and NBCSN, consumers will also need a Peacock Premium subscription to watch some of the games.

In comparison to last season, even more matches are due to be shown live through the streaming service this season and some of them are being multicast on both traditional TV channels and Peacock at the same time. During matchweek 3, six games will be available to watch live through Peacock over the August 28 and 29 weekend, including Chelsea away at Liverpool.

Peacock Premier League live games: Aug. 28-29 (all times ET)

  • Man City v Arsenal (K/O Aug. 28 at 7:30am)
  • Newcastle v Southampton (K/O Aug. 28 at 10am)
  • Norwich City v Leicester City (K/O Aug. 28 at 10am)
  • West Ham v Crystal Palace (K/O Aug. 28 at 10am)
  • Liverpool v Chelsea (K/O Aug. 28 at 12:30pm)
  • Spurs v Watford (K/O Aug. 29 at 9am)

With no Friday or Monday games taking place during matchweek 3, the schedule is a little tighter with many of the games due to start at the same time on Saturday. This includes many of the matches that are being shown live on Peacock.

For reference, while the Liverpool v Chelsea game is being shown on Peacock, it will also be available to watch on NBC as well. Those specifically interested in watching Aston Villa taking on Brentford or Brighton against Everton on Saturday, as well as Burnley v Leeds or Wolves v Man Utd on Sunday, then a live TV subscription with access to NBCSN will be required.

As is always the case, for anyone looking to stream Premier League matches lives on Peacock, a Premium subscription will be required. There are two Peacock Premium tiers priced at $4.99 and $9.99 per month, with the difference mainly coming down to the more expensive plan offering an ad-free streaming experience.
