Yes fifty amazon prime have this weeks fixtures 3-5 Dec and the 26-28th fixtures and its every game on those days. Quite simple (if you want and have the facility to watch) - sign up for whatever free trial amazon have at the moment usually a month or two at least. You then get the footy for free over the festive period plus free delivery for whatever last min gifts you buy from amazon. Clever bit of marketing from amazon

Technically fifty its not skys fault. The Premier league games are packaged into various “bundles” by the premier league and then when the time has come when the previous contracts are expired, then the league auctions off these packages to the highest bidder. Amazon prime won the rights to these two rounds of games as sky/bt/whoever else refused to pay more and i possibly think something about skys almost monopoly came into it. Get your free trial of amazon prime, watch the games for free then cancel amazon prime

Amazon Prime is showing all Premiership games that fall on a weekday for the whole of December and all games on Boxing day.

Further to the above Amazon have signed a deal with the Premier League for 90 million to show 20 matches a season for the next three years.

Fifty, Amazon bought the rights to the December football including boxing day fixtures. Quite surprised sky are “investigating”, Perhaps if the call centre operative comes back to you on the missing football matches he or she can chase up on Shergar for you too 🤣. Sign up to prime and the games are free but you will cunningly need a suitable device to watch it on, they are selling their fire-sticks half price on Amazon at minute, not sure if you can stream online?

I was reading about how these streamed Amazon games will come with slight time lag, so if you have notifications you'll know about a goal just before you see it "live". Exactly the same problem as we have on iFollow - I thought it was an iFollow problem but apparently it's a generic problem for streaming.
Apparently the BBC have figured out a solution but it's a few years away from being commercialised.

It's illegal streaming services, ran by the Chinese.

They bundle all TV, us cable, ppv and sell of the streams.

Means you can buy a full sky/bt/us/ppv/ifollow/3pm with on demand movies for as little as £5 per month (though quality providers charge more)

They are illegal though and if sky get hold of the server address they can compel your internet provider to block access when a premiership game is on, so you may need a VPN.

Needs some tech knowledge.

I have mine ran through a modded satellite box and I've tweaked it to look exactly like the sky TV interface.

Really cool, but not kosher and needs setting up

The alternative way is via a dodgy fire stick. £60 per year but it went off for a while when the Belgian server was raided and closed down.

The 'server' that got raided was a 3rd party website that did not host any streams. In fact it was a legit company that was used by hotels, hospitals and cruise ships. The company had fantastic software that allowed you to package streams into bundles and then resell them or create panels for other to sell.

They were had circa 10 million IPTV customers on their platform which shows how badly sky are getting shafted.

The reason they got took down was one of the owners of the site was hawking cheap IPTV packages on the side so they got pulled as a provider. Think the daft sod.had about 100 customers and lost a multi million pound business for dealing in pocket change


The others platforms stank so IPTV was dead for few weeks


The chinese have patched and hacked the original platform so it's back up now.

There's millions being made up the top of the pyramid and the people flogging subs for 60 quid on Facebook are reselling for people who resell for people to resell

At the top are these Chinese gangs who charge 1000s for a single high quality sky channel stream. People repackage them, sell them on to people who repackage etc etc

A massive money printing racket.

Until recently you could also backend the sky encryption and have a full sky sub for a few quid a year by card sharing. One card server could support hundreds of other cards.

You'd buy a satellite box that had the card sharing software and upload a c line to the box which would beat the encryption. They still work for all non sport and movie sky channels, but sky upgraded their encryption. There's German groups trying to pummel the new encryption methods.

Virgin is still hackable but sky have slowly started to stop channels being cleared on shared cards on that platform too

Full sky and by sport packages for a tenner a year, those were the days

With all this dodgy streaming, spare a thought for those poor premiership footballers and their agents, who's salary levels will be impacted negatively.

The whole IPTV scene is riddled with scammers, takedowns and patchy service. You need some teh know how, whether it's sideloading apps onto a firestick or running a VPN on your router, and free streaming sites have tonnes of malware links.

What this means is even amongst people who dont mind doing illegal things, many can't be assed with IPTV.

For sky this might not be a bad thing. They still get people who will pay top dollar, whilst those that won't still watch their product..I have no idea if they can monetise those extras views when pitching to advertiser's, but I'm sure they try.

So “hypothetically” speaking, if “someone” had a firestick and happened to work with someone who knew what they were doing, would that “someone” be able to get the ifollow games that are not usually on in England? Or would they have to ask for a specific thing be done to obtain the ifollow games ?
