EPL Streaming with Amazon Prime – overview
You are probably already familiar with Amazon Prime as a service. The company itself has now grown into the largest e-commerce business in the world, and Amazon Prime is essentially a paid subscription to enjoy a range of benefits. Some of the more commonly associated benefits of using Amazon Prime involve free shipping for products and even discounts for exclusive items. However, from the perspective of actually using Amazon Prime for sports, the platform has now started to introduce live streaming for plenty of sporting events from all over the world.
Amazon actually dabbled in streaming certain European football games last season, but it only covered a handful of games within the UK and other European countries. All of that is about to change, however, when December rolls around, as Amazon Prime is due to trial the streaming service for many more English Premier League games. Just to reiterate, this will only be available for Amazon Prime customers, meaning that if you are not currently an Amazon Prime member, you will need to go ahead and upgrade in order to access this.
It is perfectly natural to wonder about the cost associated with doing this as well, which is what we have covered in the next section. Note that this is completely optional, but it is an exciting prospect nonetheless.
How much does this cost?
Amazon Prime itself is a monthly subscription fee of £8.99, which can drop by a few pounds if you are currently a student. However, you could potentially unlock a free Amazon Prime trial for December if you choose to take advantage of the current promotion that they have available. Obviously, this would be a great benefit if you are a fan of watching Premier League football yet you do not currently have any form of streaming package. After all, streaming packages in the UK can be rather expensive, so this would provide you with an amazingly cost-effective way to actually watch your favourite Premier League games.
Full details of the free trial can be found on the main Amazon website, and we would recommend that you check these out well in advance before the month of December begins. That is clearly just a few weeks away, so you will need to act quickly if you're going to get the deal.
What to expect for December 2020
As we've mentioned in the information already, Amazon Prime is scheduled to start streaming many more Premier League games through the month of December. Unlike the handful of games that were actually covered last season, you can expect to be able to view some of the top premier league teams in action, which is particularly useful since so much football is played in the run-up to Christmas and New Year.
As you might imagine, this effectively guarantees that you will be able to enjoy a ton of exciting football games played over this period, and all you need to do is subscribe to the free trial in order to enjoy this service. Amazon hasn't actually publicly announced what games will be available to stream as of yet, but we would imagine that this information will be released over the coming weeks.
Key benefits of using Amazon Prime to watch Premier League
Free games to watch
First and foremost, we have to stress that if you take advantage of the free trial you will be able to watch all of these games for no cost whatsoever. This is clearly far more beneficial than choosing to pay for an expensive subscription service, and at the end of the month, you will simply have the chance to cut off the trial and not pay anything at all. Of course, you will also have the option to then pay for Amazon Prime beyond the end of December and continue to have access to the Premier League games.
Having witnessed many of the games that Amazon has streamed in the past, we can assure you that the quality of the streaming is fantastic. Of course, we are assuming here that you will be watching the games at home, meaning that you should generally have a strong Wi-Fi connection in which to stream the games through. Provided that you do have this in place, you can expect a completely uninterrupted video stream for these Premier League games, and the quality actually rivals some of the mainstream TV suppliers in the market right now.
Not locked into any long-standing contract
Another major benefit of choosing Amazon to watch the Premier League this December is that you will not be locked into any extended or indeed a pricey contract. As we’ve stated throughout this space, Amazon is giving many members the chance to trial the streaming service without the need to spend a single penny. Even if you wish to continue the subscription after December, Prime is still a subscription service that works on a month to month basis. This means that you can cancel anytime you like, and as you might imagine, this gives you much more flexibility in choosing whether you continue the service or not.
What to do now?
If you are excited about the prospect of Amazon supplying Premier League streaming in December, then you can easily go ahead and claim the free trial right now. Obviously, this only applies if you do not currently have an Amazon Prime subscription service. If you do currently have a service, then you are already set up so that you can watch a bunch of Premier League action in just a few weeks time. All of this is extremely exciting, and we cannot wait to see when Amazon announces which of the December games will actually be streamed on the platform.
This is a space that we will definitely be watching closely, and we highly recommend that you do the same!
