London, June 7 (IANS) Amazon.com on Thursday won the rights to broadcast some soccer games from the popular English Premier League, according to a report from the Dow Jones Newswires made available to Efe.
The broadcasting rights are limited to Britain and Ireland, where viewers will be able to watch a small number of games on the company’s Amazon Prime video service,” reports Efe.
Still, the move extends Amazon’s so-far modest foray into live sporting events.
The rights cover three seasons beginning next year. They include a very limited package of games just a few days a year in December, including the Dec. 26 Boxing Day holiday. The Premier League hosts several matches a day up to 10.
