It’s half-time in the 2019/20 Premier League season and Amazon Prime has the Boxing Day football. All you need to do is grab yourself a cup of tea, a tin of Quality Street and you can sit down and enjoy the football for free. Take a look below to find out how to watch the Premier League on Amazon Prime wherever you are.
Boxing Day kicks off at 12.30pm with Tottenham licking their wounds after a sound beating at the hands of rivals Chelsea. Now down in seventh place, it feels like Spurs have a mountain to climb if they’re to make the top four, now eight points out of reach. Their Boxing Day opponents, Brighton, aren’t on the best run themselves without a win in their last three outings. The Seagulls are only five points off the drop. A loss for either side would be a nasty marker for the rest of the season.
The main slew of games begins at 3pm with six games to choose from or switch between. The most significant of them has got to be Aston Villa vs Norwich City, in 18th and 19th, with just three points between them. Bournemouth vs Arsenal could be an interesting one if the Cherries could buck their recent form. Otherwise, it feels like the rest of those fixtures have too much of a disparity in ability for them not to go to form.
Things get interesting come evening time, though. Manchester United vs Newcastle will be almost as unmissable as the 8pm Leicester vs Liverpool. Both games involve teams right next to the other in the table. The Magpies will switch places with Ole Solskjaer’s team should they win. Leicester need a victory to have any chance of spoiling Liverpool’s season, and then don’t forget the only game on the 27th when Wolves play Manchester City in the evening.
Take a look below and make sure you know how to catch the Premier League on Amazon Prime Video.
How to watch Premier League live streams on Amazon Prime Video in 4K
All of the Prime Video Premier League live streams are available to Amazon Prime members and in 4K resolution too, so long as your TV and other AV equipment can support 4K. If not, you'll be bumped down to 1080p or below according to your kit.
All of the games on 26th-27th December 2019 will be televised on Prime and 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.
Of course, if you're a football fan and not an Amazon Prime member, then your best option is to sign up. Amazon Prime comes with a 30-day free trial, so you still get to access all of those Premier League football games even if you don't wish to continue your membership beyond December.
Free 30-day Amazon Prime including Premier League football
Access all 40 Premier League football games over two rounds at the beginning and end of December for free with a 30-day Amazon Prime trial. Prime membership includes next-day delivery, exclusive deal access and Prime Video membership too.View Deal
Amazon Prime membership comes with all sorts of other benefits, not least of which are access to hundreds of other shows on Prime Video and next-day delivery on many of the items on Amazon's retail store.
Once your free-trial is over, then subscription costs are £7.99 per month. If you have already used your Prime Video free trial, then you might want to get someone else in your house to sign up for December 2019's EPL games.
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.
Download a VPN: Amazon Premier League live stream from abroad
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 holds the rights for these two rounds of fixtures, so trying to access from elsewhere in the world will not work.
Fortunately, a VPN is a piece of software which masks the identity of your location by providing you with an IP address of another country. In this case, of course, UK Amazon Prime subscribers trying to watch from abroad will need to sign up to a VPN and then use the app (mobile or desktop) to choose a UK IP through which they can watch their Premier League football live stream of choice.
There a plenty of good VPN services to choose from and most are inexpensive, offer 30-day access or longer, free trials, support multiple operating systems and just about every device you can think of (mobiles, laptops, games consoles, TVs, etc).
As a general rule of thumbs, we say you're best off using a paid-for version. One can never be sure of how secure the free VPNs are. Of the VPNs out there, we like:
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.
Which comes in at as little as £2.29 per month and features 24/7 assistance
Which has some brilliant deals periodically. You can take a look at the comparison below.
