How to watch Sky Sports live streams

There are a range of different options available to sign up for Sky Sports.

Existing Sky TV customers can upgrade their current package to include Sky Sports Premier League for £15 extra a month for 12 months, while a complete Sky Sports package costs £22 extra a month for 18 months. 

If you aren't a Sky TV customer, a package costing £51 a month without a contract is available and gives you access to Sky Entertainment and Netflix in addition to Sky Sports. This service is available through streaming, so broadband isn't necessary, either. 

Alternatively, Now TV also offer 24 hours of access to Sky Sports for £11.98 as part of a one-off payment, with the 24-hour period only beginning once you start watching and automatically ending a day later. 

A monthly membership, meanwhile, costs £34.99 a month. There's no contract, though, so you're able to cancel access to the broadcast whenever. 

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Sky Sports from outside your country

If you’re travelling abroad, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – Sky Sports will where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Premier League action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
