Amazon’s commitments follow’s Sky’s decision to offer 25 of its remaining fixtures to those without a subscription. The BBC will also be showing four games as part of an agreement with the current rights holders. That will represent the first time traditional free-to-air TV has shown a Premier League game live since the league’s inception in August 1992.

BT is the only one of the stakeholders yet to commit to broadcasting at least some games for non-subscribers.

The Premier League will return in two weeks, following a three-month hiatus, giving sports fans a much-needed boost amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The first fixtures will see Manchester City take on Arsenal and Aston Villa take on Sheffield United on June 17. There’ll be a full program of fixtures over the following weekend, which are yet to be confirmed.

The schedule is expected to allow for all of the remaining fixtures to be broadcast live in the UK. We’ll be in touch to let you know which games are airing where and how you can watch them.
