The English Premier League has started a new season and there are a few ways to keep up with the new season’s action. Games are streamed live from multiple outlets including Peacock as well as DirecTV Stream and fuboTV. A few offer free trials.

It’s the richest football league in the world and the rest of Europe is looking for ways to catch up.

Off the pitch, the English Premier League is a commercial juggernaut, with global broadcast deals boosting player transfers and wages most others can’t match. It helps explain why some clubs started the Super League project.

The league’s wealth helped English champions Manchester City make the summer signing. Erling Haaland’s move from Borussia Dortmund cost City more than £100million ($122million) in transfer and agency fees.

While Haaland was a City fan, whose father played there, he has also been lured into a competitive league that avoids the one-club dominance seen recently in Germany, Italy and France.

On the pitch, five different teams have won the Premier League over the past 10 seasons, including Leicester’s stunning 2016 title. Although City have won four of their last five titles, two of those have been epic clashes with Liverpool.

The Champions League is also feeling the power of the Premier League, with four different sides in the last four finals, including two all-English games. Liverpool have been in three of their last five finals, winning just one Premier League title.

The same four sides – City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham – are England’s entry into the Champions League this season.

Manchester United and Arsenal only qualified for the second tier Europa League and are by far the richest clubs there.
