And while the service won't be rivalling Sky and BT in terms of quantity - it's only agreed 20 matches per season for the duration of the three-year contract - the delivery mechanism is quite unusual.
(It should also be noted that this is just relating to United Kingdom rights.) That's a big deal; Boxing Day in particular is a bit of a tradition on the Premier League calendar, and though it's just two days worth of matches, it's not hard to imagine Amazon picking up plenty of new Prime customers here.

"Over these two December fixture rounds, Prime members will be able to watch every team, every game, so no matter which Premier League team you support, you're guaranteed to see them play live on Prime Video".

Announcing the deal, Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore said: "Amazon is an exciting new partner for the Premier League and we are very pleased they have chosen to invest in these rights". Prime costs the equivalent of $106 per year in Britain.
Separately, the Premier League clubs have agreed a new formula for sharing any future increase in global broadcast revenue from season 2019/20 onwards.
