How to listen to Premier League coverage outside UK

I love listening to sports on the radio. It’s the perfect distraction when you’re on a long drive, doing chores at home, or you just want to relax and listen to football on the radio. In this article, we explain how to listen to Premier League radio coverage outside the UK.

Premier League radio coverage outside UK

BBC Radio 5 Live

In my opinion, BBC Radio 5 Live provides the best radio coverage of the English Premier League. Unfortunately, this is only available in the UK. Even via internet streams. The only way you can listen to BBC Radio abroad is to use a VPN.

With a VPN you can spoof your location to a server in the UK. Allowing you to watch and listen to BBC iPlayer as if you were in Blighty.

Be careful which VPN you chose though. Not all of them work with iPlayer. This is because the BBC has been detecting and blacklisting VPN IPs since mid-2016. If you want to listen to the EPL on BBC iPlayer when you’re not in the UK, we suggest using either NordVPN (£2.04/month) or ExpressVPN (£4.80/month). Both of these VPNs provide a high-quality service and have dedicated technical teams to keep their servers optimised 24/7.

Take a look at our BBC iPlayer not working with VPN article to find out more.


If you’re not fussy about which station you listen to, and you can bare Stan Collymore, you can listen to coverage of the EPL from anywhere in the world by tuning into TalkSport. TalkSport own the global audio rights to EPL.

To listen to TalkSport outside of the UK, all you need to do it go to the TalkSport website and click on the Listen Live link. If you want to listen on your smartphone or tablet, we recommend downloading the TuneIn Radio app and listening to TalkSport that way.
