Liverpool won its first league title since 1990, which you may have heard something about. The Reds amassed 99 points, as well as winning the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Liverpool vs. Leeds United live.
Liverpool 2019-20 season in review
Liverpool completed its primary objective last year. Winning its first Premier League title reigned supreme; the rest of the season didn’t quite match up. LFC was knocked out in the Round of 16 in the Champions League by a spirited Atletico Madrid squad. (Liverpool made the UCL Final the previous two seasons.)
Its Cup run ended against Chelsea, and the Carabao Cup was all but forfeited when the first team left the continent and let the youth squad lose to Aston Villa in the quarterfinals.
Now that the league has been won, Liverpool in many ways is like a new club. Much of the anxiety that built up over every result is gone now, although I’m not sure if these players ever felt any of it. The Reds can now go forward with confidence, knowing they are among the very best in Europe, and can finally call themselves the best in England.
Liverpool fans, by extension, can stream Liverpool matches this season and enjoy the show to an extent. There’s no pressing need to repeat, though it seems entirely in Klopp’s makeup for this to be the goal.
Preview: Stream Liverpool vs. Leeds United
Liverpool is somewhat removed from the dominance of last season, dropping 13 points in its final 11 games. That’s compared to two in its first 37. Much of that had to do with the coronavirus interruption, but also may have been a let-off with Liverpool so close to clinching the title.
The first game this season is an intriguing one. It’s against finally-promoted Leeds United and manager Marcelo Bielsa, who in many aspects of management, is world-class. Bielsa plays an extremely attacking style regardless of the opponent, and has said this week that he yet again will not change against Liverpool, while still calling the team “one of the world’s best”.
This matchup of philosophies between Bielsa and Jurgen Klopp is sure to make for an exciting back-and-forth game, which may or may not end with Leeds being taught a lesson. To find out: Stream Liverpool vs. Leeds United on Saturday. It should be a fascinating season opener.
According to the oddsmakers at BetMGM (as of Sept. 10). Leeds will be taught a lesson:
- Liverpool, -385 (wager $385 to win $100)
- Leeds United, +950 (wager $100 to win $950)
- Draw, +525
- at Chelsea, Sunday, Sept. 20 at 11:30am ET, Premier League
Premier League live stream: How to watch Premier League matches online
The bulk of Premier League matches air on NBCSN, with NBC and Peacock carrying the remainder.
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream Liverpool live. It also comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.
Hulu Live TV’s sports coverage includes the full suite of ESPN channels (including ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN College Extra), FS1 and FS2), NBSCN, the Olympic Channel, and the Big Ten Network. Hulu’s also got you covered for news and entertainment in its nearly 70-channel package. (That includes NBC and other local channels.)
If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel.
NBCSN means you’ll be able to stream Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League live. And Hulu’s access to NBC will allow you to catch Liverpool in the prime time slot it’ll occupy more than once this season. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
There’s also a Sports Extras option for Orange + Blue subscribers, with MLB Network, NBA TV, and NHL Network part of the plan. There’s also a Sports Extra add-on for the Sling Blue package, and another one for the Sling Orange package.
If you’re a Premier League fan, Sling Blue will set you up with NBC in some markets, or you can get AirTV and get all your local channels.
How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge your CBS affiliate and other local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—gives Sling users the ability to access all local channels to add to whichever Sling package is the best fit for them.
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier. You can stream both NBC and NBCSN with Fubo.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Ultimate and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. You can stream NBC and NBCSN starting at the Plus tier.
The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.
It’s a great option for sports fans. It comes with ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, NBC, and NBCSN at the ready. Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, and ESPNU are also part of the YouTube TV plan. For $10.99 more a month, upgrade to the Sports Plus plan to get NFL RedZone and six additional sports channels.
You recently needed NBC Sports Gold to get every single Premier League match on the schedule. Peacock‘s taken over that role now. The NBC-centric streaming service, launched in July, started streaming Premier League matches in the tail end of last season. Get Peacock Premium, and you can get matches that won’t be broadcast on either NBC or NBCSN. (And then you’ll be able to access all that the service offers.)
