How to watch December’s Premier League games on Amazon Prime

Amazon Premier League

This December, Amazon Prime will show two full rounds of top flight football.

Amazon Prime will soon become the third broadcaster - along with BT and Sky - to stream live Premier League matches.

Across December, the television giant will show 20 fixtures free for Amazon Prime members to watch - including the Merseyside Derby, Manchester United vs Spurs and Leicester vs Liverpool.

Fans will be able to enjoy commentary and post-match analysis during the December games from Gabby Logan, Eildh Barbour and Jim Rosenthal. Pundits include Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Peter Crouch.

How do I watch the games on TV?

To watch the games, you’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription – which usually costs £7.99 per month (£79 per year). For this outlay you’ll get thousands of movies and videos, plus ATP tennis to boot.

How to access the matches

After you’ve set up your account, log in and head to the Premier League page. From there, click 'live and upcoming matches' to pick the games you want to watch.

How do I watch Amazon Prime on my device?

As with most pay for TV subscription services, you can watch your favorite shows on a number of devices, including your laptop, smartphone, TV and tablet.

If you’re a Virgin Media customer, you’ll be able to watch Amazon Prime Video through the Amazon Video app on your Virgin TV V6 set top box.

Other ways to watch Amazon Prime Video include:

  • Through your smart TV – most TV brands support the Amazon Prime Video app, including Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic. Simply download the app to your TV to get started. If you've already got an account, just enter your login details.
  • Using an Amazon Fire Stick – if you don’t own a smart TV, you can watch Amazon Prime Video through an Amazon Firestick. If your device has a HDMI port, plug the TV power cable into the socket. After that, follow the instruction on screen to connect the device to the web.
  • Streaming services - you can watch Amazon Prime on BT TV, TalkTalk TV, Apple TV and Chromecast.
  • Games console - if you have a Play Station 3, PlayStation 4, X Box One or X Box 360 you can watch Amazon Prime through the app, just as you would on your TV.

Unfortunately not, you’ll need a subscription to watch Premier League games on Amazon.

That said, the TV giant does offer a 30-day trial on the service, which will cover all of the games in December mentioned below.

What speeds do I need to watch football on Prime?

According to Amazon, you will need a minimum download speed of 1 Mb to watch the Premier League in SD, and 5 Mb to watch in HD.

If you live in a large household - where several devices are used at once - a fibre optic package will be the best option to avoid lags and buffering.
