Will Boxing Day matches be televised by Amazon Prime Video?
Amazon has picked up exclusive rights to air many Premier League games in December, as part of a deal to continue for three seasons. Anyway, unlike last season, no Boxing Day's fixtures are live on Amazon Prime Video this year.
Prime Video offered separate live streams for each and every match during these period last year. This means when multiple games play at the same time, fans can switch between the streams at will – making the lives of football punters a lot easier.
Furthermore, the streaming giant announced a star-studded punditry line up for the games, including big names such as Alan Shearer, Alex Scott, Peter Crouch, Thierry Henry and Harry Redknapp.
The best part of all this? Football fans can watch all of Amazon’s Premier League offerings for free with a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime.

Will There Be Fans in Stadiums in Premier League Boxing Day Games?
Premier League Boxing Day's fixtures will go ahead despite many coronavirus outbreaks taking place at various clubs. Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Tuesday that he will NOT be introducing new Covid restrictions in England until at least December 27 - unlike in Scotland where they will be limited to 500 fans.
Hence, top flight clubs will not place any restrictions on clubs to reduce their attendances, but they may have to change their stance should the government introduce restrictions on sporting events.
The announcement comes a day after Premier League teams decided to continue playing over the festive period despite the recent spike in Covid cases and although 6 matches over the past weekend were postponed.
