Here’s how you can watch Premier League games for free on Amazon Prime Video
For the first time, football fans can watch Premier League games live on Amazon Prime Video this December.
The streaming giant has picked up exclusive rights to air twenty Premier League games in December, as part of a deal to continue for three seasons. In 2019, Amazon Prime Video will provide exclusive coverage of all games on December 3-5 and December 26-27. That includes major match ups such as the Liverpool derby and Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur.
As was the case with Amazon’s live US Open coverage, Prime Video will offer separate live streams for each and every match during these period. This means when multiple games play at the same time, fans can switch between the streams at will – making the lives of Fantasy Football managers a lot easier.
Amazon will also be hosting an exclusive Premier League highlights show called The Goals Show, featuring all of the above games.
That’s not all. On Thursday, Amazon announced a star-studded punditry line up for the games, including big names such as Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Alex Scott, Peter Crouch and Harry Redknapp. Gabby Logan, Eilidh Barbour, Jim Rosenthal and Steve Bower are amongst the names to present.
The best part of all this? Football fans can watch all of Amazon’s Premier League offerings for free with a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. All one needs to do is sign up before kick off on December 3 and continue to enjoy all the footballing action through December.
REVIEW: Dave Gorman’s Terms and Conditions Apply is quirky, smart and a lot of fun
Dave Gorman’s latest comedy series combines the best of both worlds: powerpoint presentations and big-name comedy guests.
It’s hard to know what to expect from a comedy show that hopes to “make sense of the modern world”, but Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply somehow does exactly that. The nerdy subject matter adds its own spin on Dave channel’s winning formula for original comedy content. The result is a smart new series that will have its audiences in genuine fits of laughter.
The rounds are quirky and unexpectedly hilarious. One asks comedians to predict the outcome of extreme informercials, while another pokes fun of BBC series Money For Nothing‘s fondness of lamps. My personal favourite, however, is a round dedicated to the frequently asked questions pages on big name company websites.
A lot of research has been put into Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply and it shows. I dread to think of how much time was spent reading corporate FAQs in hopes of finding the smallest instances of humour. Based on this first episode, I’m very excited for whatever else Gorman and his team have come up for the rest of the series.
Gorman is the perfect host for this concept, with his attention to detail and geeky charm. He brings back his trademark powerpoint presentations and thrives as a host, giving the show a heart that brings everything together. There’s a warm energy between him and his guests, which brings out the best in the witty one-liners that come thick and fast throughout the episode.
The first episode features a comedy line up including Sara Barron, Phil Wang and Richard Osman alongside Gorman. There’s a lot here for the guests to do, with some zinger one-liners delivered. It’s all about quick wit, and a look at the line-up of future episodes indicates that this is not something Terms and Conditions is likely to be short of.
Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply is the rare new addition to the world of comedy panel shows that treads new ground. With Gorman at the helm, it’s an awful lot of fun.
Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply premieres on Dave on Monday October 21 at 10pm.
