Amazon has confirmed that it has lined up over 40 household names for its exclusive live Premier League coverage in December.

Amazon has revealed the hosts, pundits and commentators that will deliver the on-screen action to Prime members when Amazon Prime Video streams 20 live and exclusive Premier League football matches for the first time this December.

With over 40 on-screen names set to front the match coverage on Prime Video this Boxing Day alone, the announcement today reveals the names that will take on the roles of main studio hosts, stadium match hosts, commentators, co-commentators and pundits across the two fixture rounds.

Prime Video’s hosts for Premier League coverage in December will include Gabby Logan, Eilidh Barbour and Jim Rosenthal. Amongst those joining them as pundits across the early December mid-week games and Boxing Day matches will be Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Peter Crouch, Roberto Martinez, Lee Dixon, Harry Redknapp, Jermaine Jenas, Alex Scott, Peter Schmeichel and Michael Owen.



Commentary across all 20 live and exclusive matches will be delivered by a team of renowned experts of the game including Clive Tyldesley, Jon Champion, Connor McNamara, Guy Mowbray and Ian Darke alongside Andy Townsend, Ally McCoist, Glenn Hoddle, Sue Smith and Kevin Kilbane.

Prime members will also be able to tune in to an exclusive goals show hosted by Steve Bower alongside Dion Dublin, Robbie Savage, Tim Sherwood, Joe Cole and Dermot Gallagher, that will bring Prime members footage from all of the best Premier League action as it happens across the UK.

In December 2019, Prime Video will offer live and exclusive Premier League matches available on Prime Video in the UK, completely free with a Prime membership. The offering comprises of two full fixture rounds featuring live coverage of every Premier League team – the first December midweek round which includes the first Merseyside Derby of the season as Everton travel to Anfield to take on European Champions Liverpool, as well as UEFA Champions League finalists Spurs visiting Old Trafford to take on Man Utd – and the Boxing Day round, including Premier League Champions Man City travelling to Wolves and Liverpool travelling to Leicester, plus Man Utd hosting Newcastle.

In addition, Prime members can follow a humorous weekly look at highlights of the Premier League with Back of the Net, a weekly studio entertainment show about the most-watched sports league in the world hosted by legendary footballer Peter Crouch, comedian John Bishop and broadcaster Gabby Logan. Episodes of Back of the Net are released on Tuesdays after each Premier League, running through to Prime Video’s exclusive live broadcast of matches in December.

Live Premier League football will join Prime Video’s exclusive tennis coverage with the US Open, 37 ATP Tour events and from 2020 WTA tournaments, allowing customers to watch the best in women’s and men’s tennis.
