Brendan O'Neill in Football 12 Oct 2015

The ever increasing demand to watch live football online means the question where can I watch the Premier League online? has passed many a pair of lips. So here at Livesport.co.uk, we've made it our mission to keep football fans up to speed on who's playing where and when, and most importantly, to show them who's broadcasting the game live online.

Sky Sports are perhaps best known for their Premier League football coverage. They boast five dedicated sports channels which are available as a premium package on top of the basic Sky package, but also offer subscribers an opportunity to sign up for Sky Go, which allows them to watch football live and on demand anywhere they like on their preferred mobile device at no extra cost to the Sky TV subscription. 

Fans of the 'beautiful game, can watch Sky Go on their computer, tablet or smartphone through the Sky Go app with each option designed to give them a different way to watch live football online.6x5x4x3x

The Sky Sports app for Android also allows you to watch Sky Sports channels 1 to 5, Sky Sports F1™ and Sky Sports News HQ live and on the go.

They're not all about the Barclays Premier League either, with the Sky Bet Football League, SPFL, Capital One Cup, European Qualifiers, La Liga, MLS, Copa Del Rey and Eredivisie also on offer.

Sky has played a major role in the increased commercialisation of sport in Britain since 1991 and has been at the forefront of some major organisational changes in the world of football in the UK, most notably when it encouraged the Premier League to break away from The Football League in 1992.

BT Sport, meanwhile, is another major destination for football fans to watch the Premier League. BT Sport holds exclusive live UK TV rights to a select number of Barclays Premier League matches per season as well as exclusive rights to the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Serie A, the Bundesliga, Ligue 1, the Primeira Liga, the FA Community Shield and FA Trophy. They also holds shared rights to the FA Cup with the BBC and the Scottish Professional Football League with Sky Sports and BBC Alba.

The BT Sport app also brings you live streaming and breaking news to your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. BT Sport's app for smartphones and tablets allows BT Sport subscribers to watch BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport Europe and BT Sport//ESPN live and on the move.

Such has been the growth in online coverage of football leagues and tournaments across the globe in recent years, major broadcasters have made sure to jump on the bandwagon and to broaden their appeal as well as subscribers' viewing options. If you have an account with Sky or BT, not only will you be able to watch all the big games on TV from the comfort of your living room but also on the go on your mobile device.
