Amazon To Make Premier League Matches Free-to-Air

Amazon will make its four Premier League matches in the rest of the 2019/20 season free-to-air as broadcasters arrange for the arrival of the English top-flight.

The Premier League is fixed to resume behind closed doors on June 17 after staying suspended since March because of the pandemic.

All 92 remaining fixtures are televised live, and Amazon features a small package of games.

Unlike earlier this season, fans won’t need a significant membership to observe fixtures on the web platform.

“Like the remainder of the country, we are excited to ascertain the Premier League return to action,” said Alex Green, director of Prime Video Sport Europe.

“We are making all fixtures free of tariff. Fans won’t need a major membership to look at the games on Prime Video.”

The online streaming service listed in the competitive Premier League live rights exchange in 2018, transforming the landscape of British sports programming.

Sky Sports has declared 25 of its 64 games to be free-to-air on its Pick channel, while the BBC holds the right to screen four matches on Television.

It will be the first time the BBC has presented any live English top-flight events since 1988.
