Amazon Premier League rights

TV camera

Amazon is only showing 20 live matches per season starting in 2019 on Prime Video, which is available through a standard Prime membership at £79 a year or standalone Prime Video membership at £7.99 a month in the United Kingdom, as well as weekly highlights of the matches throughout the season.

The 20 additional matches will cost the telco £90m, bringing the total cost for 52 games to £975 million over three years.

Add BT Sport to your Sky TV package for £27.99 a month, plus a £20 fee, and Amazon for another £7.99 a month.

Subscription channel Premier Sports will screen 33 Premier League games in the Saturday afternoon slot, with another 20 matches also being shown on the platform.

The internet streaming service will show 20 games a season from 2019/20 to 2021/22: every game from the first round of midweek fixtures in December and all 10 fixtures on Boxing Day.

It means that BT will, for the first time, be able to screen show multiple midweek Premier League matches on the same evening.

"The Premier League is the most watched sports league in the world".

Amazon Prime already broadcasts live sports, such as the US Open tennis and NFL American football.

They will also have a weekly highlights package.

The Premier League have confirmed that worldwide revenue is set to be distributed based on league finish, with the ratio rising from 1.6.1 to 1.8.1.

On a busy day of announcements at the Premier League's summer meeting, it was also confirmed that the "big six" clubs have won their fight to take a bigger share of the top tier's booming global broadcasting revenue.

"We welcome Amazon as an exciting new partner and we know Prime Video will provide an excellent service on which fans can consume the Premier League", added Richard Scudamore, the league's executive chairman.

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.

Amazon.com and the Premier League did not disclose the price achieved for the final package.

Throughout the auction period there has been the suggestion that online players would join the bidding for at least one package.

It makes complete sense for one of the online streaming services to pick up a Premier League package.

"This new agreement will continue that trend with a subtle change that further incentivises on-pitch achievement and maintains the Premier League's position as the most equitable in Europe in terms of sharing central revenues".
