Amazon Prime Video will be airing 20 Premier League matches live this December!
As if forking out for Sky Sports and BT Sports wasn’t enough, football fans have a new competitor on the horizon.
Online giant Amazon will be adding another feather into their ever-growing cap by taking up 20 Premier League matches and streaming them on their Prime Video streaming service this December.
The move means that the Premier League TV rights, which have been valued at an incredible £5.14 billion between 2016 and 2019 according to the BBC, are now shared between the three companies.
But for viewers not wanting to miss a moment of the action, how can you tune in to Amazon Prime and how much does the service cost?
Premier League matches on Amazon Prime
Amazon struck a deal with the Premier League back in the summer of 2018 to broadcast 20 matches live during the 2019/20 season and beyond until 2022.
It is estimated by SportsPro Media that Amazon paid around £80 million for the rights to broadcast the 20 fixtures.
While the 20 December Premier League fixtures are Amazons first foray into football, the retail and streaming giant has also aired the 2019 US Tennis Open as well as a selection of NFL games.
