    Where do you stand on this new streaming service? Embracing the future? Expecting a few crashes? Just another platform and more money you need to shell out? Missing the monopoly?

    Whatever your thoughts, fire away…

  3. How much did Amazon spend?

    It is not known how much money Amazon paid for its 20-games-a-season three-year contract. But trust me, they can afford it.

    It also has the exclusive rights for the Boxing Day round of games on 26 and 27 December.

    BT Sport paid £90m for a similar package of 20 games a year.

    The Premier League splits its games into several chunks, mostly shared by Sky Sports and BT, but it offered two small packages of 20 games to see if any online giants like Amazon, Netflix, Google, Facebook and Apple were interested.

    England’s top flight had hoped for a bidding war between those companies but it did not materialise.

    Yes, they hardly need any advertising from me on the old BBC but tonight is Amazon’s first steps into the Premier League broadcasting world.

    Is it still called broadcasting if it’s only online? Not sure.

    What I do know is you can watch these games tonight, but only through the aforementioned bookshop’s services:

    Crystal Palace v Bournemouth (19:30 GMT)

    Burnley v Manchester City (20:15 GMT)

  5. The new boys in town…

    For the first time we have a ‘matchday’ of Premier League games all available to stream – legally – giving fans the option of choosing what they want to watch.

    Football is moving with the times. Only about 10 years behind the rest of the entertainment industry, but still.
