It’s a shame I didn’t come across this sooner when I think about all of the Premier League games that I’ve been missing since leaving England to live abroad 4 years ago! Well, I’ve created this blog so that you don’t have to miss another EPL game again!
I recently came across a program called Satellite Direct, which once installed on your computer allows you to stream thousands of TV channels from around the world directly to your computer. This includes all the major sports channels which in my tests since using this software myself, does include all the major UK sports channels that show premier league games.
With Satellite Direct you will be able to watch any Premier League game you like though, not just the ones that are live on UK TV. Every game is shown live on various channels around the world so if you can get a good TV guide to find out which games are being shown live in which countries then you will pretty much have free reign over what you want to watch.
I had previously tried to find free streaming web sites that would be showing EPL games, but they are so hard to find and are very unreliable once you do find them that Satellite Direct is well worth the $49.95 price tag that it comes with.
Whilst plenty of people out there will be happy spending hours trying to find what they can for free, what they will end up with are sub-par live streams that will likely do down midway through a game! I don’t know about you but I value my time so the one-off $49.95 is a steal for something that saves me hours of searching and that gives such reliable connections to so many channels.
Since downloading Satellite Direct I have been testing it out and finding out if there are any quirks that come with using it before recommending the service here on my blog.
Once you’ve spent the couple of minutes it takes to install the program (it works on both Windows and Mac!) you can instantly browse the list of countries to see which channels are available. As I sit here writing this post right now I can see all of the Sky sports channels available on a number of different connections. The extra connections are there in case one happens to go down, which in honesty can happen but with 8 links to Sky Sports 1 which I am watching now you will always have an alternative to use in case it does happen.
You’ll also need to wait up to 30 seconds to close some ads that appear in front of the video once you switch to a channel, but this isn’t really a problem as they don’t appear again until next time you change.
In summary, Satellite Direct is an amazing piece of software which allows us to watch EPL games live online, on our computers and I can’t wait for the new season to start!
