The Premier League Summer Series takes place from July 23 to 30 across five East Coast States in the United States.

Six Premier League teams will be involved in the new pre-season tourney: Chelsea, Newcastle, Brighton & Hove Albion, Fulham, Brentford and Aston Villa.

These six teams will play three matches each, without meeting each other more than once, and the winner will be decided.

You must be wondering how to catch up with the actions live on TV and streaming apps in Nigeria.

Well, we've got you covered, because if you're a fan of these clubs who'll be taking part in the Premier League Summer Series, we have information on how you can watch the action in Nigeria.

We'll also bring you information on how you can watch the event in other parts of Africa and the world.

Watch Premier League Summer Series in Nigeria

Catch all the action live on SuperSport as the reliable Multichoice cable television network serves Nigeria and the rest of Africa in the Premier League Summer Series.

SuperSport will be broadcasting the matches in Nigeria through Multichoice's two cable television platforms: DSTV and GoTV.

DSTV and DSTV app

DSTV is more high-end. This cable television platform comes with a dish which you can connect to a couple of televisions and decoders to enable you to watch what you want.

To watch the Premier League Summer Series and other live football actions using your DSTV platform, just subscribe to a SuperSport package/channel. We'll advise you to subscribe to more than one SuperSport channel in order to have access to more of the games.

You can also download the DSTV app to watch the Premier League Summer Series at your convenience anywhere you are outside your home.

The app is available on Play Store or App Store, and it's compatible with your Android and iOS devices. After downloading, log in with your credentials, pay the subscription for your SuperSports channels, and enjoy live-streaming action from the inaugural Premier League Summer Series.

GoTV and GoTV app

On the other hand, GoTV is a low-end cable platform that can only serve one television at a time. Interestingly, DSTV and GoTV have similar channels but have differing subscription rates available in Nigeria.

Since both cable television platforms have similar interfaces, you can navigate your way in the GoTV SuperSports channels the same way you do with the DSTV.

You can also download the GoTV app and stream live actions from the Premier League Summer Series. The app is compatible with your Android and iOS devices.

Note that, you will pay a subscription fee to enjoy the SuperSport live football channels. You will also be privileged to see a repeat broadcast of the games.

Watch Premier League Summer Series in other parts of Africa

Football fans in most North African countries can also watch these matches live on beIN Sports, while those in most West, East and South African countries can watch on SuperSport.

If you cannot catch the action live, you can watch the highlights on each team's official YouTube channel.

Watch Premier League Summer Series in the USA and UK

If you don’t live near any of the venues hosting the games, you may be wondering if you can watch on TV wherever you are.

NBC Sports

Football fans in the United States who're not near any of the venues hosting the games can still connect to the live action through NBC Sports. They're the exclusive broadcaster of the Premier League Summer Series in the USA.

But unfortunately, only two of the nine Premier League Summer Series games will air on cable in the U.S. — the final two.

On Sunday, July 30, cable viewers can watch the 12:00 PM game between Aston Villa and Brentford on NBC, as well as the 2:45 PM game between Chelsea and Fulham.

For every other game, you'll need a Peacock subscription to stream.

How to watch on Peacock

Through NBC's Peacock streaming service, football fans can tune into every game of the PL Summer Series at home. If you're already a Peacock subscriber, you're good to go.

For others, you can sign up for Peacock Premium or Premium Plus, which cost $5.99 or $11.99 for a monthly subscription, or $59.99 or $119.99 for an annual subscription.

Sky Sports

Yes, you can watch the Premier League Summer Series live on Sky Sports if you're in the United Kingdom.

The actions will be live on Sky Sports Main Event, and Sky Sports Premier League.

Other ways to watch the Premier League Summer Series

Non-cable subscribers can also catch live actions of the PL Summer Series through a live TV streaming service like:

  • Hulu + Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • FuboTV

However, these streaming services aren't cheap, but assuredly, you'd get your money's worth with access to other live programs ranging from entertainment and news.
