Premier League TV rights: Amazon to show 20 matches a season from 2019-2022
What a bunch of tossers!
A great win for the consumer!
I'm sure there'll be technology available to me to overcome this ridiculous over selling of rights to screw the consumer, but one day I'm gonna say...'you know what...f**k it!'
will pubs have to join some sort of business version of prime to show the games?
Given that there's no way I'm ever going to start subscribing to Sky Sports or BT Sport, this actually marks the first time that I'll be able to watch top flight football at home legally since I was 8 years old.
Not that I will of course, because it's all a load of shite, but nice to have the option
Same here. Look forward to it.
I have BT vision so can watch premiership matches but rarely do. I also have Amazon Prime so now I can rarely watch matches on there too .
First of all they cant show 3.00 ko's and I cant see people huddled round an Amazon Fire tablet watching the games. I suspect they'll strike a deal with either Sky or BT .
Anyone who can watch Netflix on the telly can watch Amazon Prime on the telly. I have a (very basic) Smart TV that can do it on its own or through the computer its linked to or if both those went wrong I could cast from my phone. And I'm middle aged and a bit of a technophobe.
Yep , I watch Prime on my telly .
None of the matches they are showing will be 3pm Saturday kick offs.
I assume as they only have Boxing Day and another bank holiday (I guess it will be around Easter) round of fixtures you’ll be able to choose whatever match you want from every game that weekend.
On the flip side especially for Boxing Day fixtures this will hopefully mean all games kick off at an acceptable time and away fans especially don’t get dicked on by shitty transport services trying to get back from wherever at 10pm which has been a major problem for the past few seasons. Hopefully every game will be a 3pm kick off.
Sorry I was on about pubs , traditionally Boxing Day = watching football in the pub
If they are all 3.00 ko's they wont be live on Amazon?
It's only Saturday 3pm kick offs that can't be shown live. Boxing Day is a Wednesday.
The televised games will eventually kick off later and later to suit overseas viewers. The broadcasters nor the premier league give two fucks for actual supporters that attend games.
Tellies work the same in pubs.
We must drink in different pubs , I can't remember seeing a smart tv in any of the pubs I drink in England. I'm back in July so I'll check them out .
I suppose it had to happen. I don't won't subscribe, so the only time I get to see live matches is if I can be arsed to drag myself off to a ground, or more likely go to the pub.
Over here in Portugal one subscription of 35 euros to one provider ( SportTV) gets you Portuguese League ( aside from a handful of games that Benfica TV have) , EPL, France, Spanish , Italian and German leagues plus Europa and CL. I pay £6 a month for an IPTV service that has all EPL games , foreign sports channels and Sky movies plus.a VOD service. I suspect that the IPTV service will stream the Amazon games .
If the IPTV service shows American channels (not sure if NBC still have the coverage of EPL) then I'd assume you'd get that service anyway?
I find the Canadian channels are better than the American ones plus you get Bein Sports ( two to three channels in English ) plus the pretty much any country's channel that has the EPL and in some cases Championship . The 3.00 ko's are in 1080.
Who you using out of curiosity? Could you send a message if you'd rather not publicly post it?
Watch it all free on Acestream Better picture than my telly.
