Amazon haven’t spared any expense in bringing together a top team of presenters, pundits and commentators for its Premier League coverage.
After years of dominance from Sky Sports, the Premier League has ventured to other TV broadcasters in recent years.
From 1992, Sky has been the lead broadcaster for Premier League football and now faces some tough competition from BT Sport who joined the party in 2013 and now Amazon Prime Video who snatched up the rights to show 20 matches this December.
Amazon are likely testing the water with their initial three-year deal but they certainly haven’t skimped in bringing together a top team of presenters, pundits and commentators to bring their coverage to life.
But just who can we expect to see and hear on Amazon’s Premier League coverage?
Premier League football on Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime Video will be airing 20 Premier League matches this December.
The mid-week round of matches between December 3rd to December 5th as well the boxing day and December 27th fixtures will all be exclusive to Amazon Prime Video, although highlights will still be available on Match of the Day.
To watch the action, you will need a subscription to Amazon Prime which costs £7.99 a month or £79 annually. There is also a 30-day free option before you commit to paying.
Amazon Prime is available on computers, smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV sticks, mobile and games consoles.
Who are Amazon’s pundits and presenters?
Amazon have spared no expense in bringing together a top team of presenters and pundits to lead their Premier League coverage.
Taking on presenting duties are Gabby Logan and Eilidh Barbour who are regulars on the BBC and Jim Rosenthal who was a stalwart of ITV’s sports coverage for almost 30 years.
Joining them are a huge raft of pundits including the likes of Alan Shearer, Alex Scott, Thierry Henry, Peter Crouch, Roberto Martinez, Lee Dixon, Harry Redknapp, Jermaine Jenas, Alex Scott, Peter Schmeichel and Michael Owen among others.
Who are Amazon’s commentators?
Meanwhile, on commentary duty, Amazon have brought in the likes of Clive Tyldesley, Jon Champion, Connor McNamara, Guy Mowbray and Ian Darke.
They’ll be joined on the commentary team by former players such as Andy Townsend, Ally McCoist, Glenn Hoddle, Sue Smith and Kevin Kilbane.
Which matches are being shown?
Amazon are showing a total of 20 matches in December and if you want to catch all of the action, your best bet is the goals show, which will see Steve Bower, Dion Dublin, Robbie Savage, Tim Sherwood, Joe Cole and former referee Dermot Gallagher guide us through each goal as it’s scored.
