Amazon has revealed it is free to watch all of its Premier League football matches on Amazon Prime and its online video streaming app, Twitch.
The tech giant, which has the broadcast rights to four Premier League matches, said that watching the games won’t require an Amazon Prime membership.
Free games for Amazon include Crystal Palace versus Burnley (June 29), Everton versus Southampton (July 6), and Watford versus Newcastle (July 11). It is yet to confirm its fourth fixture.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the stadiums will be virtually quiet, but Amazon said a “Stadium Atmosphere” feature would allow fans to hear a crowd’s noise alongside the match commentary. Sky Sports offers viewers a crowd-noise option on their matches, too.
Gabby Logan, Roberto Martinez, and Lee Dixon will announce the games while Clive Tyldesley, Peter Drury, and Ally McCoist will comment.
On Boxing Day last year, Amazon aired its first Premier League games, showing all 10 of the day’s games, as well as matches that were on in the lead up to New Year.
Reportedly, the company has paid £ 90 million ($112 million) to broadcast 20 matches a season over the next 3 years.
As a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic, the Premier League has been in pause since March. Organizers, however, have resumed fixtures this week, and 92 matches are remaining this season.
As lockdown measures in the UK, they will all be played behind closed doors to Avoid mass gatherings.
