Bengaluru, June 4: Amazon Prime will make its four Premier League matches in the remainder of the 2019-20 season free-to-air as broadcasters prepare for the return of football in England's top-flight.
The Premier League is set to resume behind closed doors on June 17 after being suspended since March due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
All 92 remaining fixtures, which are to be played without fans, will be televised live and Amazon has a small package of games.
Unlike earlier this season, fans will not need a Prime membership to watch fixtures on the online platform.
"Like the rest of the country, we are excited to see the Premier League return to action," Prime Video Sport Europe Managing Director Alex Green said.

It will be the first time the BBC has shown any live English top-flight action since 1988.
