The main satellite broadcasters have wasted no time in releasing their schedule of live English Premier League fixtures for the opening months of the season, with a total of 67 games being broadcast between the middle of August and the end of September.

Sky Sports has the lion’s share of those with 43 live games over Saturday and Sunday afternoons and theIr Monday night games.

They start their live offerings from the Emirates Stadium on Saturday August 16th when Arsenal host Crystal Palace at 5.30pm.

Liverpool host Southampton at 1.30pm on Sunday 17th, followed by the clash of Newcastle United and champions Manchester City from St James’ Park at 4.0pm.

Sky’s first weekend offering ends with the Monday night meeting of newly promoted Burnley at home to Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea at Turf Moor, with kick-off at 8.0pm.

Live coverage of the season will begin on BT Sport on Saturday August 16th at 12.45pm with Louis van Gaal’s first game in charge of Manchester United against Swansea at Old Trafford.

BT Sport will show 12 matches over the opening months as will Setanta, who get their schedule underway with newly-promoted Leicester City taking on Everton at 3.0pm on Saturday August 16th.
