Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Bloody Amazon bloody Prime! They've bought up 20 Premier League December games that you can now no longer get on Sky or BT Sport. That includes tomorrow's Merseyside derby and the Man U and Leicester games, among others, six in all, all of which kick off between 7.30 and 8.15. Amazon are telling us how great that is because we can watch the first half of one then the whole of the next. What bollocks! I set myself up with a second Amazon account with a different email (gawd knows whether that's even legal) because they're giving "new" customers (which is what I am not) a 30-day free trial. So I've bagged that before, in 30 days' time, I have to do the Hotel California bit and try to extricate meself lest I start paying 7.99 a month. Grr. It's bad enough that I have to have two subscriptions, costing me about twelve quid, to watch Premier League and Champions League games. I hope that Amazon will decide that the game ain't worth their candle. It would be outrageous if we end up paying three different subscriptions. End of rant!

I did watch Burnley/Man City on Prime tonight. The commentators were idiots but the streaming was very good, I must admit. Crap result.
