Watch Premier League for free with Amazone Prime
If you’re an avid sports fan who happens to have an Amazon Prime membership, Christmas just got better. Amazon.co.uk has acquired broadcasting rights for next year’s ATP tournaments and some of this month’s Premier League match days.
Amazon Prime brings more live sports to Prime Video
For the remainder of 2019, and in the year to come, Amazon’s bringing more live sports to Prime Video.
Amazon will be covering the ATP Tour live with Prime Video, starting December the 31st. And world-class tennis tournaments are undoubtedly a significant addition to Amazon’s already popular streaming service.
But Amazon won’t only be bringing world-class tennis to Prime Video. The company has also acquired broadcasting rights to some of this month’s Premier League matches.
To start with, we’ve got six exciting games to look forward to today. These are the matches you’ll be able to watch on Amazon Prime Video:
- 19:30 – Leicester City v Watford.
- 19:30 – Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United.
- 19:30 – Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur.
- 19:30 – Chelsea v Aston Villa.
- 19:30 – Southampton v Norwich City.
- 20:15 – Liverpool v Everton.
Thursday 5th of December:
- 19:30 – Sheffield United v Newcastle.
- 20:15 – Arsenal v Brighton.
Watch more matches on boxing day
As an extra Christmas treat, Amazon will be streaming another nine Premier League games on boxing day.
When the Christmas presents have been unwrapped, and your system’s still struggling to digest all the Christmas food, you’ll be able to kick-back and enjoy a marathon of Premier League matches.
There will be games from early afternoon until late in the evening. Here’s the match schedule for December the 26th:
- 12:30 – Tottenham Hotspur v Brighton & Hove Albion.
- 15:00 – Aston Villa v Norwich City.
- 15:00 – AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal.
- 15:00 – Chelsea v Southampton.
- 15:00 – Crystal Palace v West Ham United.
- 15:00 – Everton v Burnley.
- 15:00 – Sheffield United v Watford.
- 17:30 – Manchester United v Newcastle United.
- 20:00 – Leicester City v Liverpool.
How do I get Amazon Prime?
If you don’t have a Prime account yet, Amazon’s new additions might just be the push you need. A Prime membership will cost you £7.99 per month after your 30-day free trial has ended.
Once you’ve got a Prime Video membership, you’ll be able to watch your favourite series and games from anywhere and download any content you like. And if you miss a game, you can watch it later with Amazon’s on-demand replays.
If you want to watch today’s and boxing day’s matches, I’d suggest you start your free trial immediately. Here’s what you need to do:
- Go to Amazon.co.uk.
- Click on “Amazon Prime 30-day free trial” in the top right corner
- Sign up with your e-mail address.
You’ll have to add a credit card to your account when you sign up. And when the trial is over, Amazon will start charging you £7.99 every month. To avoid these charges, you’ll need to login to your Amazon account and actively cancel your Prime membership.
You can cancel your subscription anytime you like. However, if Amazon keeps on extending its sports selection in 2020, a Prime Video membership promises to be a great way of watching live sports.
