Amazon Premier League Pass ready for on-trade

The Amazon Premier League Pass, which offers 20 live Premier League matches across December, is now available for UK pubs and bars to order via BT Sport.

Prime Video has the exclusive rights to 20 matches in December, allowing pubs and bars to show every game from two fixture rounds during the festive season – the first December midweek round and the Boxing Day round.

The first midweek round will show games across 3, 4 and 5 December, and includes the first Merseyside Derby of the season as Everton travel to Anfield to take on European Champions Liverpool, as well as Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

The Boxing Day round will be played across 26 and 27, and will include Manchester City against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Manchester United will host Newcastle United at home, while Liverpool will be heading to Leicester City, a challenging away game for the current league leaders.

“For the first time ever, Boxing Day will see no fewer than nine games broadcast, with the first game kicking off at 12.30 and the last, which sees European Champions Liverpool travel to Leicester, scheduled for 8pm,” says Bruce Cuthbert, director commercial customers BT Sport. “Licensees will be able to choose which games to show to their customers, and for those with multiple screens and the right set up, they will be able to offer a bigger choice with a massive six games kicking off at 3pm.”

The price will be £315 for a pub with a rateable value of between £8,000-£15,000. BT Sport customers will be eligible for a 20% discount and will also have the option of paying across six monthly instalments.

Any pub or bar will be able to access the games using its current set top box equipment and satellite dish, via channel 490 and the red button. BT Sport can help pubs without set top box equipment and satellite dish to purchase the equipment needed to show Amazon Premier League Pass if they subscribe by 22 November.
