It will offer the matches as part of its Amazon Prime Video subscription, it is said, with all members getting access to the live streams at no extra cost.
For Amazon, the ability to show sports could be a way to get more people to sign up for Prime subscriptions, which cost $US119 in the United States and about $US106 in Britain.
"There is huge appetite for the Premier League in Ireland and we are very pleased to have concluded this process which ensures more matches than ever before will be available live from 2019/20 onwards", said Premier League chief Richard Scudamore. The only problem is that most of those companies failed to take the Premier League's bait.
The Premier League is easing into doling out fixtures to streaming video. The fixtures will be over two periods in December, and that some will clash with each other - although an Amazon spokesperson pointed out to me that you could still watch multiple matches at the same time, on different devices if you wish if you like to multitask.
The domestic TV cash has always been distributed on a meritocratic basis, depending on where clubs finish in the league, but proceeds from foreign broadcasters have been shared equally since 1992, as nobody predicted the sums involved would become so significant.
The value of the packages sold in February brought to an end the rampant inflation previously seen in the rights to show matches featuring the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
As a result, the deal will see Amazon Prime Video show all 20 Premier League teams.
But the format of the Premier League's auction makes it easier for digital media companies to compete.
"Back then the clubs put in place a revenue-sharing system that was right for the time and has served the league well, enabling them to invest and improve in all areas". Though Amazon may have gotten a discount, its Premier League price tag would still likely hit nine figures in USA dollars.
There are still a number of overseas deals to be completed but it is expected that the Premier League will double the #3bn it received in overseas revenue from the previous three-year cycle.
The remaining package of 20 matches has been secured by BT for a cost of £90 million (€102 million) meaning the telco has secured 52 games for a totalof £975 million over three years.
