Sky Sports and NowTV have both announced price cuts for watching the Premier League using their services this season.

Sky's new deal means that Sky TV customers can now get both Sky Premier League and Sky Football channels for just £18 a month, down from £23 a month. This will give viewers access to at least 146 top-flight English matches this season – and that number could go up if further televised games are announced while fans cannot attend games.

Similarly, NowTV – an online service that involves no lengthy contracts – has reduced its monthly sports pass to £25 a month from £33.99 a month. This gives customers access to all Sky Sports channels, and the 146 Premier League games available on Sky TV.

And if fans purchase a NowTV stick for a one-off cost of £24.99, they can also link up a £25 monthly online BT Sports pass to access all Premier League games shown on BT too – bringing the total number of Premier League games you can watch to 198. To find out more about that – including how to link up your BT Sport account to your NowTV stick – we explained it all here.

Another option is to get BT TV, with a Big Sport package that includes a NowTV sports pass as well as BT Sport – giving you access to 198 Premier League games. This costs £20 a month for the first six months, and then £40 a month after that, with a minimum contract of 24 months.
