FSA statement on Amazon broadcasting

This week was the first time Premier League games were live-streamed by internet retailer Amazon, on their Amazon Prime video service. The next round of fixtures to be broadcast via Amazon will take place on Boxing Day. The FSA released this statement on the matter.

FSA chief executive Kevin Miles said:

“The number of televised games in football is now at an all time high – this leads to more kick-off times being moved, more inconvenience for match-going fans and greater costs for anyone trying to follow their team.

“We warned Ofcom about the dangers of forcing more broadcasters into English football but supporters’ concerns were set aside. Ultimately as we’ve seen supporters are the ones losing out – but we’ll continue to lobby the football authorities and broadcasters for a better deal.”
