Amazon wins Premier League broadcast rights
Amazon has announced that it has acquired the exclusive UK rights to broadcast some Premier League football matches from 2019.
The 2019/20 season will see the online retailer’s UK Prime members having exclusive access to watch at least 20 matches per season. In addition, Prime members will be able to view weekly highlights of all Premier League matches.
The Premier League joins Prime Video’s growing stable of live sports, including US Open Tennis, ATP World Tour Tennis events and NFL games, all currently available to watch on Prime Video in the UK at no extra cost to a Prime membership.
Jay Marine, vice president of Prime Video in Europe, said: “We are always looking to add more value to Prime. The Premier League is the most watched sports league in the world. Over these two December fixture rounds Prime members will be able to watch every team, every game, so no matter which Premier League team you support, you’re guaranteed to see them play live on Prime Video.”
Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore added: “Prime Video will be an excellent service on which fans can consume live Premier League football – including for the first time in the UK a full round of matches – and we look forward to working with them from season 2019/20 onwards.”
