Premier League matches are coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2019

From 2019, you’ll be able to watch 20 of the Premier League’s matches live on Amazon Prime Video, bringing the total number of broadcasters showing the league’s matches up to a total of three including Sky and BT. 

The specific matches are yet to be announced (unsurprisingly, given they’re still a year away), but ten of them are expected to be streamed live over a bank holiday weekend, while the other ten will be of midweek games, reports The Guardian.

The deal has been signed for three seasons, bringing the total number of matches to 60.

Although it’s not an insubstantial amount of matches, it still pales in comparison to what BT and Sky plan on broadcasting. Sky holds the rights to broadcast 128 matches, while BT has 52.

This isn’t the first time Amazon has dipped its toe in broadcasting live sport after having bagged the rights to stream the US Open and ATP World Tour tennis tournaments, as well as select NFL matches.

However, this is its first major foray into football, especially a major British league.

The matches will be available to anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription, which means you shouldn’t have to shell out any extra cash to get your Premier League fix.

That said, it’s not quite as good of a deal as the recent Champion’s League final, which was streamed for free through BT’s YouTube channel.
