With English football restarting this summer, a number of TV networks are showing matches for free

Premier League football is returned to our screens in June after a three-month suspension due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

Having been deprived of seeing the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal in live action during the global lockdown, fans of English football will now be able to watch a selection of games for free.

Television networks such as Sky Sports and the BBC will show a number of fixtures without any charge, while newcomer Amazon Prime will also stream some matches for free.

So which games will be gratis? What channel will they be on? And how exactly can you watch them?

When did the Premier League restart?

Premier League 2019-20 restarted on June 17 with two matches: Manchester City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United.

Once those two games - left over from matchday 28 - were played, the remaining nine matchdays from 30 to 38 - 90 fixtures - are played.

Which Premier League matches will be free to watch on UK TV?

Sky Sports will make 25 matches available to watch for free, Amazon Prime has confirmed that its four games will be free to watch and the BBC will also broadcast four live matches for free.

Overall, then, a total of 33 Premier League fixtures of the remaining 92 - nearly a third - will be free to watch or stream on UK TV networks.
