Amazon has the rights to air four Premier League football games for the 2019/2020 EPL season restart in the UK, and the good news is they're all free to air both on Amazon Prime Video and on the Twitch live streaming video platform too. Below we'll have all the details you need on how to access those streams.

Those in the US can't get those games for free but they can buy a season pass from NBC Sports Gold and watch every minute of all the remaining EPL games live for just $9.99! (Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a US or UK citizen stuck away from home.)

The remaining three Amazon/Twitch games scheduled are Everton vs Southampton (9th July), Watford vs Newcastle (11th July) and Sheffield United v Everton (20th July).

Take a look below and make sure you know how to catch the Premier League on Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.

How to watch Amazon/Twitch Premier League live streams in the UK

All of the Amazon games in June/July 2020 will be streamed on Prime Video. All you need to do is log into the Prime Video app on your smart TV, mobile phone, tablet, games console or set-top box and select your match. You can also log in using a web browser on a laptop or elsewhere by navigating to the Prime Video website. If you can't see the live sport available, then make sure you update your device to the latest software version.

You do not need to be a Prime member for these games.

There's no guarantee of 4K coverage. Instead, the small print reads that "Prime Video will serve the highest quality streaming experience possible based on the bandwidth speed available". Anyone with a connection of at least 5 Mbps will get at least 1080p.

Viewers will be able to pause and rewind games as well as start from kick-off in case you happen to clip the beginning. Full match replays are enabled from midnight on the day of the game.

To switch on the artificial crowd noise, you'll need to select 'Stadium FX' from the speech bubble in the video player, the Audio menu on Fire TV or swiping down on the remote with Apple TV.

To watch the Premier League on Twitch, you'll need to sign up to a Twitch account and then navigate to the Prime Video Twitch channel.

Watch the Amazon/Twitch EPL live streams from abroad with a VPN

UK Amazon Prime subscribers who are abroad, and wish to stream the Premier League on Prime Video, will find themselves blocked unless they use a VPN. It's only in the UK that Amazon and Twitch hold the rights for these fixtures, so trying to access from elsewhere in the world will not work.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

Premier League restart rights in the US belong to NBC, CNBC and NBCSN and you can watch all the remaining games on NBC Sports Gold's Premier League Pass for just $9.99, including the games on Amazon and Twitch.

It's only available in the US, so any US citizen stuck outside their own country during the crisis will need to use a VPN to get access.

The NBC Sports Gold app is available iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Chromecast. You can also watch EPL streams on NBCSportsGold.com.
