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.

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.

"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.
