Boxing Day has seen Amazon Prime Video airing another round of Premier League football, with fans eagerly tuning in to the streaming service and the platform trending on social media as people get up to date with sports events.
Previously, Sky Sports and BT Sport would be the destinations for live Premier League coverage, but a new deal has resulted in Amazon Prime Video nabbing the coveted position.
As part of the package, the streamer has exclusive rights for the Boxing Day fixtures airing on December 26 and 27 2019. Although the cost of the deal hasn’t been revealed, we do know that BT Sport paid £90 million for a similar setup in the past.
If you want to watch the games, you will need an Amazon Prime account. Subscriptions can be bought on a monthly or yearly basis, but the good news is that you can sign up for a 30 day free trial if you’re a new customer.
Amazon is clearly using the Premier League coverage as a way to attract new customers to the platform during the busy festive period, and so far it seems to be working. Former Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore has referred to the company as ‘an exciting new partner’.
These are the fixtures being shown:
Tottenham vs Brighton
Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Aston Villa vs Norwich
Chelsea vs Southampton
Crystal Palace vs West Ham
Everton vs Burnley
Sheffield United vs Watford
Manchester United vs Newcastle
Leicester vs Liverpool
Wolves vs Manchester City
