On top of that they have the most of the "largest teams" and if you're in a business like myself where you work with people from England, you can easily talk with them about it.
(Well the last part is just a good addition for myself)
Here's an AWESOME way to get introduced to soccer and the EPL. If you don't want to watch an entire match yet, there's a show that comes on Saturday nights (you can tape it on the East Coast if you don't want to stay up) called Match of the Day. It's basically a 2 hour show which goes through the main highlights of every match in about 10 minutes. When I can't see the games live on the weekends, I watch this show.
During college football season, it's a great way to keep up with the EPL since we tend to be a bit busy on Saturdays.
