Amazon partners with BT Sport, Sunset+Vine for EPL match production

US media company Amazon said on Thursday it will turn to BT Sport and its production partner Sunset+Vine to produce its package of 20 live English Premier League games per season acquired for UK broadcast for 2019-20 to 2021-22 .

The online streaming service has exclusive rights to the matches after it won unsold rights in last year’s auction.

It will show matches from the first December midweek round and on Boxing Day through its Amazon Prime streaming service. This will be the first time a full round of Premier League fixtures will be broadcast live in the UK.

Amazon confirmed that coverage and production of both studio and live action coverage of the matches would be handled by BT Sport and Sunset+Vine.

The Premier League rights add to the OTT service’s growing list of live sports, which includes the likes of the ATP World Tour and the NFL.
