Disney-owned ESPN will once again have TV rights to just 23 Premier League games, with Sky holding the remaining 115 (including some available in 3D). The US broadcaster will air most of the 5.30pm kickoffs on Saturdays and will also be able to offer highlights of all games on mobile devices via its ESPN Goals service.
On August 13, television coverage of the new Premier League season gets under way for Arsenal's visit to St James's Park to take on Newcastle on ESPN. The following day, Sky will open its campaign with last season's runners-up Chelsea travelling to Stoke City, along with West Brom's clash with champions Manchester United.
ESPN will feature Manchester United three times in the opening four months, showing away trips to Bolton Wanderers, Stoke City and Swansea. The channel will show André Villas-Boas's new Chelsea side as they play host to West Bromwich Albion on August 20, followed by Tottenham Hotspur's clash with Manchester City on August 28 and Arsenal's tie with Fulham on November 26.
The coverage will again be presented by Ray Stubbs, Kevin Keegan, and Steve McManaman, with Jon Champion and Chris Waddle in the commentary box.
Jeroen Oerlemans, ESPN's vice president of TV channels EMEA, said: "We're thrilled to start ESPN's third season of Barclay's Premier League coverage in the UK and Ireland with a great range of matches.
"Our expert on-air team will continue to bring fans all the drama and excitement from one of the world's greatest domestic leagues. Last season we had fantastic matches on the channel and we expect more of the same this season."
Sky's first Monday Night Football of the new season sees Manchester City host newly-promoted Swansea City in the latter team's first ever Premier League game.
The satellite broadcaster will also show Arsenal's clash with Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool on August 20 and the grudge match between Manchester United and Chelsea on September 18.
All games shown on Sky Sports will be available on Sky Go, the new service enabling Sky customers to watch TV channels for free on laptops, PCs, tablet computers and smartphones.
Barney Francis, the managing director of Sky Sports, said: "Manchester United and Chelsea both feature as part of a live Ford Super Sunday double header on the opening weekend of the season, followed by Swansea City's first ever Premier League match when Ford Monday Night Football kicks off on August 15.
"In the first set of live Sky Sports HD fixtures we will also see seven major derbies, all top six teams in the opening 10 days and every Barclays Premier League club live before the end of November."
