Gallagher Premiership live stream: How to watch matches online from anywhere
The Gallagher Premiership returns on Friday 20 November, with champions Exeter Chiefs taking on Harlequins less than a month after lifting the trophy.
With the 2020-21 season starting late due to the delayed completion of the last campaign because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Premiership matches will be played throughout the Six Nations so that all 22 rounds can be completed before the semi-finals (18-19 June) and final (26 June).

Newcastle Falcons have replaced Saracens in the top flight – the former winning promotion from the Championship and the latter being relegated due to salary cap breaches – while Exeter will be looking to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet having won the European and domestic double in 2019-20.
No doubt you’ll want to watch the action unfold. Below we explain how to find a reliable Gallagher Premiership live stream wherever you are.
How to watch the Gallagher Premiership from outside your country
If you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.
VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.
Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.
Plus, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can try it out for a month for free or sign up for an annual plan and get three months free.
