Everton could be starting the Merseyside derby in the bottom 3 as it stands.

Great game so far, Silva is a dead man walking.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Watching the amazon prime every game live option tonight was great. Definitely a big improvement on sky's format. Bit like watching MOTD in real time.

Well worth the money imo. Hope they get to expand their coverage at the next auction.

i'm sure they will. Agree about the sky format if they could take a few of the BT player options onboard as well that would be even better.

Yeah Cole and Dublin were ok, but Savage and Sherwood got on my nerves a bit. Particularly Sherwood.

At £80 a year or £8(?) a month it would be well worth it for football fans if they got more games next year.

For reference in Canada all Premier League matches, all Champions League Matches, all Europa League Matches, all Italian league matches, some Football League, domestic cup matches, all NFL games, all Champions Cup rugby, Pro14 rugby, MLB Network, plus darts, boxing and MMA are available live and on demand on DAZN (which is headquartered in England) for $150 CDN per year, or $20 per month.
OK, and how much will that cost you in the US, where Amazon and Sky's parent company are based?
I think their fees are approximately the same, but what DAZN carries there is different, as the league television rights are sold separately for the US from Canada, and it just happens that for Canada DAZN has been successful in buying a lot of exclusive rights away from the traditional sports television networks.

Breweries are f***ing over pubs more than enough as it is. Why would anyone pay £4+ a pint when they can get 18 bottles and a 1 month subscription to Amazon prime for £18.

It's $100 a year for some fights.

But the point wasn't about DAZN, but about how much Amazon will charge for their coverage. I suspect it will go down the route of BT, where it will be cheap if you have Prime, then start to cost more, eventually being a separate service, where people will have to pay for Sky, BT and Amazon each month to watch the football.

Remember the days when people were complaining about Sky getting the CL rights and having a monopoly on football when it was only £40/50 quid?

Long gone are those days.

Safe to say that'll go up if/when they have more than two fixture weeks.

As its not in the UK here you could just buy a VPN and use their service that way?

Yeah, i'm paying £7.99 a month and was already happy with what I was getting for that money even before the football was added.

Like ptao says though, if they add more games it will cost them a s***-ton of money, so no doubt they will either up the price or make it an add on charge, like they do with the full music package.

I have NBCSN here in the us. It gives me access to every game all season for £35 a year.

Possibly, but how many people would subscribe if it meant having a choice of every game like they do for this week?

Yeah I imagine the uptake would be very large, so long as people realise what they are getting for the money. I certainly wouldn't begrudge paying more if there was extended coverage.

Problem is, the rule/regulation/law whatever as it stands, is that you can't televise Saturday 3pm kickoffs domestically. Amazon are making a big deal out of the first full set of fixtures ever to be televised in the prem, because it is. The loophole being it's midweek, same with the next round of fixtures over boxing day. Clearly they targeted these weeks intentionally. Point being, even if they take over the full premier league package, they may be limited to the amount of matches they can feasibly show. Unless the existing rules do change.
