Amazon has confirmed which fixtures from the forthcoming Premier League season will be exclusively broadcast via its Prime Video service after the 2020/21 schedule was revealed on 20 August.

As per the last broadcast rights auction, Sky Sports will show 128 Premier League fixtures during the forthcoming season while BT Sport will broadcast 52 games when the new season gets underway on Saturday 12 September.

Sky Sports’ schedule will again comprise 32 fixtures at 5.30pm on Saturday, eight fixtures at 7.45pm on Saturday, 32 fixtures at 2pm on Sunday, 32 fixtures at 4.30pm on Sunday and 24 matches on Mondays at 8pm or Friday nights, while BT will broadcast 32 fixtures at 12.30pm on Saturday and 20 midweek games. 

Amazon will exclusively broadcast two full game weeks – a midweek round spanning 15 and 16 December before a second on 28 December – as well as two further games to be decided at a later date.

Arguably the most eye-catching of Amazon’s fixtures are Tottenham’s trip to reigning and defending Premier League champions Liverpool at 8pm on 16 December followed by the Reds’ away fixture at St James’ 12 days later.

What’s more, Amazon will also broadcast clashes between EFL Championship winners Leeds and Newcastle, Everton and Manchester City as well as Manchester United and Wolves.

Prime and pubs

Last season BT Sport was appointed to market Amazon’s Premier League pass to commercial premises until the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, with pubs and clubs able to access fixtures via their current set-top box equipment and satellite dish without needing to be a BT Sport customer.

Under the pass’ original pricing structure​, pubs with a rateable value between £8,000 and £15,000 will pay £315 for access to the internet giant’s exclusively live Premier League matches, with BT Sport customers eligible for a 20% discount. 

Amid the Covid-19 outbreak and requirement that remaining games in the 2019/20 season were played behind closed doors, Amazon – like Sky Sports and BT – suspended billing​ for commercial customers.

However, BT Sport has already outlined​ that after receiving 70% off in August its 'Back to Business' customer discount will then decrease on a monthly basis until the end of year, when standard charges will resume. From July to December, pubs taking the offer will receive an average saving of 50% per month.
