The Premier League Pay Per View has been scrapped.
Official announcements from the Premier League on Friday afternoon revealing the news, as well as the alternative arrangements.
The Premier League official announcements (see below) confirmed that they are reverting to the kind of arrangements at the end of last season, after football restarted.
The existing broadcasters will show all the games live, with Sky Sports having the lion’s share and then BT Sport, Amazon and the BBC having the rest.
This arrangement will last until the new year at least and all November matches are confirmed now, as you can see below, Crystal Palace v Newcastle United is now on Amazon, with an 8pm kick-off on Friday 27 November.
Details of December matches to be announced shortly.
The first Premier League official announcement:
All fixtures from 21 November through to New Year will be available to fans to watch live in the UK.
The Premier League today announces that all fixtures from Saturday 21 November, and throughout the Christmas and new year period, will be made available to fans to watch live in the UK.
Working with our broadcast partners, and with the support of clubs, all matches will be shown via existing Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon and BBC services.
Details of the first additional selections covering the period until the end of November are announced today.
December and January selections will follow in due course alongside our usual UK live matches.
Accessible solution for fans
There is a full schedule of Premier League matches over the festive period and clubs are committed to an accessible solution for fans.
These plans have been made with the cooperation of our broadcast partners, working with us to deliver these additional matches while stadiums are missing the supporters who are such an integral part of the game.
Review in the new year
The agreement will be reviewed in the new year following consultation with clubs, broadcast partners and in line with any decisions made by Government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums.
The Premier League and our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible.
