KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Amazon's package means the streaming giant will have exclusive access to watch 20 matches per season, comprising two full fixture rounds - the first December midweek round and the festive Bank Holiday round - featuring live coverage of every Premier League team.

Sky will still show the most matches though, with a staggered 128.

The e-commerce giant won the exclusive rights to show Premier League soccer matches in the United Kingdom for the next three years, it announced on Thursday.

It has now been confirmed that the USA company has bought one of those packages, with BT taking the other.

The agreement gives Amazon a package of 20 matches per season from the league.

But Sky said after the auction in February that it had paid £3.58 billion ($5.8 billion) over three years for its matches, while BT Sport paid a total of £885 million.

If prices remain as they are, it seems that the cheapest monthly cost of Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video packages that cover all the live games will set you back £66.48 a month. It does similar with some live sporting events in the US.

That could open the door for Facebook or Amazon to strike a deal that would change the way football is watched in the United Kingdom, with the spiralling cost of signing up for television packages seeing a boom in fans watching matches on illegal internet streaming services every weekend.

The bix six clubs - Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham - managed to get the necessary 14 votes out of the 20 to agree that from 2019/20, any increase in the current global rights package, will be distributed according to league position and not equally distributed between all 20 clubs as it has been up to now.

Premier League is a top-level soccer league, consisting of 20 teams.

Amazon Prime membership now costs £7.99 per month or best price £79 per year.

"We welcome Amazon as an exciting new partner, and we know Prime Video will provide an excellent service on which fans can consume the Premier League", Richard Scudamore, the Premier League's executive chairman, said in a statement on Thursday.

Amazon has been entering the world of streaming sports for a few years now, including their recent deal with the NFL for streaming rights to Thursday Night Football.

"When the Premier League was formed in 1992 nobody could have envisaged the scale of global growth in the competition which exists now", Scudamore said.

Facebook made a major bid previous year to stream cricket matches from the Indian Premier League and is streaming Major League Baseball games, while Twitter has streamed baseball and professional hockey games.
