Amazon have become the latest broadcaster to show live Premier League games next season, with them streaming two full rounds of matches online, and Newcastle fans will be able to watch them free of charge.

The web giant secured rights to show 20 games on their Amazon Prime subscription service during the last television broadcast deal.

They will show every Premier League game on Boxing Day, as well as the full set of midweek fixtures in the first week of December.

Newcastle are away on both occasions, and with one being an attractive game that will sell out at Manchester United, and the other being a Tuesday evening in Sheffield, it may prove difficult for a lot of Toon fans to attend the games.

Amazon currently charge subscribers £7.99 a month, or £79 a year to access the service.

 

But Newcastle fans will be able to watch both games for free via the service, by signing up to a 30-day free trial, which they offer to all new customers.

We contacted Amazon to find out if the offer would remain in place during December, when the games would be shown.

An Amazon spokesperson told us: “We have no plans to change the existing 30-day free trial for new Prime members.”

So fans, as long as they have not been a member before, will be able to register for the free trial before the Sheffield United game on Tuesday December 3.

As long as the trial subscription is cancelled before the end of Monday January 1, they will get access to the service for both that, and the Boxing day game at Old Trafford.
