Is Bournemouth vs Aston Villa on TV and can I live stream it?
- Unfortunately, Bournemouth vs Aston Villa will NOT be broadcasted live on television in the UK.
- This is due to the football blackout laws which prevents matches from being shown live between 2:45pm-5:15pm.
- However fans overseas in the United States can stream the entire action on Peacock.
Bournemouth fans will have to be a little more patient before seeing summer signings Ryan Fredericks and Joe Rothwell as Scott Parker confirmed that they are both still recovering from minor knocks.

Tributes paid to Brighton winger who scored five goals to seal promotion
The Cherries boss said: “He [Rotherwell] did a sprint and just felt something in his quad. He won’t be ready for the start of the season.
“Ryan Fredericks is on the grass again. Again, next weekend comes a bit too quick for him, but he is on the right track.”
But former Middlesbrough winger Marcus Tavernier will be eager to impress on the flanks for Bournemouth.
Meanwhile, Steven Gerrard faces some problems of his own as Ezri Konsa and Kortney Hause are likely to miss their Premier League opener whilst Carney Chukwuemeka is all set to join Chelsea.
However, Leon Bailey is fit and firing again having featured in all five pre-season fixtures.
And summer signing Boubacar Kamara is also in contention to feature in his first competitive fixture for Villa.
- Bournemouth to win 29/10
- Draw 5/2
- Aston Villa to win 1/1
