After a successful first season as a part-time Premier League TV rights holder, Amazon has confirmed that it will be showing a bonus four EPL football games in the post-break season and, best of all, they'll be free to air for all.

Whether you're a UK Amazon Prime customer or not, you'll be able to stream all the action from those four Amazon fixtures. All of the 92 remaining Premier League games will be aired on TV and played at separate times. So, in theory, fans should be able to catch every single minute.

This announcement from Amazon takes the total number of free-to-air games up to 33, making something of an unprecedented bonanza of free top-flight football. Details on whether games will be at 4K UHD resolution have not been confirmed.

Aside from Amazon, the BBC also has four free to air fixtures. Sky Sport has the lion's share with 64 games (39 exclusive, 25 free on Pick on Freeview) and BT Sport has the remaining 20 which, so far, are for BT Sport customers only.

The action kicks off with Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal on 17th June, with a full round of fixtures beginning two days later on 19th June. Specific ties have yet to be confirmed but the BST time slots are below.
