Online Premier League footie 10:32 - Dec 3 with 1349 viewswkj

For those with a prime account that has a bit of an itch for footie, and don't shill out for BT or Sky, Amazon debuts their Premier League month of coverage tonight.

3/12/19
Burnley V Man City
Palace V Bournemouth

And yet probably more tasty is tomorrow's offerings
Man U v Spurs
Liverpool v Everton
Leicester v Watford
Chelsea v Villa
Wolves v Wet Spam

Seems the pundits are Danny Higgingbottom, Eni Aluko, Jermaine Jenas, Clinton Morrison and Karen Carney on quite a relaxed backdrop. I have faith the coverage might actually seem down to earth and no nonsense.

You know, Jermaine Jenas is actually growing on me quite a lot. When he first went into the media game I thought he was a train wreck, but he really seems to have grown in to it.

On that matter I actually don't mind Clinton Morrison, think he's grown into it as well.

Will we see the return of Andy Townsend?

Those pundits stated in the OP are awful. I think there are more "established" people like Alan Shearer, Michael Owen (meh!), Thierry Henry, Gabby Logan etc on as well at some point if you like those.....! haha

Its going to be like the BT sport European nights when you get strange ones like Nigel Spackman commentating....!

Its hard to say really, seems as this is a tester for Amazon I hope that it works out. I am all for the monopoly on sports coverage to be weakened.

Edit: Apparently Matty Holland is also going to be part of it too.

Keep it schtum, but my mate was doing an MOT on a certain tactics truck last week. Few bald tyres needed changing but apparently deemed roadworthy.

I really don't. Well, I should say that I don't see this as any worse as one company having exclusive rights to a sport and able to control the price in such a monopoly. Does this not make more games available as a whole rather than take games away from one platform to show on another? In that case, I can only see it as a win-win situation.

He is hit and miss with me, I like it when he calls out things that are clearly wrong in games in a very reasoned way. However, his general outlook on games often just fades out to mere background noise.

So you are happy to hypothetically pay annually (or monthly) for 3 separate services to watch (in all sense & purpose) the same product?

Now, if it was available for Free To Air, then I’d agree with your original sentiments.

EDIT: I’ve got an IPTV subscription. I can watch ALL major football leagues, full iFollow coverage (Champ/L1/L2), plus World TV for £50 a year.

I am happy for the choice of platforms yes, especially as Prime offers a broad range of other services for the price. I don't subscribe to Sky or BT Sport as I don't see them as value for money.

Given the fact that this is increasing the total number of broadcast games as a total per season, I don't really see why people would feel obligated to sign up for all three. If it turned into Amazon, BT and Sky in a 3-way split of games, thus diluting the number of games shown on Sky and/or BT then I can see more weight to your argument, but as it stands it is increasing the supply (number of broadcast games) as a whole, so I support it entirely.

I think he likes to try and shout the loudest and be dramatic to be heard and be relevant. He's quite old school and criticizes constantly. Also has a tendency to contradict himself when it comes to penalty decisions, handballs etc... in my opinion anyway!

If Ipswich were in the Premiership & a screening % of games were split between BT Sport, Amazon & SKY, I think your ‘not obligated’ argument would sound pretty hollow if you wanted to watch those games. Or should I say watch them legally & at home.

It’s fairly simple to stream all games in FHD online for free.

I am not completely discounting your point of view here as I get what you're saying, for example Netflix used to pretty much be the only streaming entertainment hub, and now you are seeing more and more, but I just cant see past the possitives behind sky not having an outright monopoly, seems as BT Sports actually benefits them too.

Sky didn't drop the price by even a penny when they lose some Prem games and the Champions League. BT is now expensive as well. Amazon just adds another layer.

The Prem chasing money might be their downfall as they spread the football over too many retailers and fans decide not to bother.

I am thinking more further ahead... when Jeff Bez stumbles on something he wants, he goes all out. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to take on Sky head to head after this three years... I mean... They have Gaby Logan on the Man City game ffs... already a success
