Amazon buys EPL rights in United Kingdom in 1st for an internet platform

Amazon Prime Premier League live stream BT Sky

The upshot for football fans is that there will now be three places to watch live Premier League football from the 2019/20 season, so how much is that going to cost you? And so will Amazon.

BT was handed an additional package of live games in the final round at a total cost of £90m, taking its tally of games per season to 52 versus the 128 for Sky.

Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore described Amazon as an "exciting new partner".

The deal means Amazon with exclusively stream 10 matches over one Bank Holiday of Premier League games during the festive period as well as a further ten during a midweek slot which will be early in December.

Amazon has broken Sky and BT's stranglehold on Premier League football by striking a groundbreaking deal to livestream exclusive coverage of 20 matches per season online.

Notably, the citizenship guide for both the United States and Canada each claims that their country won the war. On May 25, it was Trump's turn to make ominous historical references, according to reports by CNN and CBC.

You will also get all the Champions League games on BT Sport with this, if that makes you feel any better?

The league had hoped these innovative packages - two chances to show all 10 games of a particular round - would tempt the likes of Amazon, Facebook and Google into the market for live rights. That results in 20 matches in total.

The Premier League have now confirmed that all the live TV packages to show PL games live in the United Kingdom from 2019-2022, have now been concluded.

Also on Thursday, Premier League clubs have struck a new deal over sharing revenue from global broadcast deals which will see any future increases divided according to league position.

Amazon has been in negotiations about the two package for months - against rivals including BT - after the completion of the sale of the most valuable TV rights packages in February.

Any change to the Premier League's rules needs a two-thirds majority - at least 14 of the 20 clubs - and the big six failed to achieve this at a league shareholders' meeting in October, prompting fears that the league's successful approach to selling its rights collectively was about to collapse, with some suggesting the big six could be tempted to form a European super league.

They will also have a weekly highlights package.

Recent days have seen claims that BT Sport and Amazon had taken one each of the previously unsold pair of deals, that has now been confirmed.

There are still a number of overseas deals to be completed but it is expected that the Premier League will double the #3bn it received in overseas revenue from the previous three-year cycle.
