Hopefully this is an end to premier league matches on Amazon for now and it returns to proper broadcast telly.
Nope, it's back next year (and the year after)
That’s ridiculous when these matches are shown in proper 1080i50 and 3840p50 elsewhere.
Amazon, Facebook, Netflix and the other streaming video companies don't care about that. They just want you to associate them with your favourite sport, and to entice you to spend money with them. Remember, Amazon aren't doing this to get viewers to see adverts, they're doing it to sell Prime subscriptions, and make it easier for you to do all your shopping through them.
And they have full HD and UHD streams available where they can, so their argument will be you need to spend more money on your internet connection and it's not their fault you've got crappy broadband. Can't get FTTC / FTTP? Well, think about moving to somewhere that can, they've not signed up to any universal access obligations.
If you're upset or annoyed, it's the Premier League themselves you should direct your complaints to. It's their media strategy that saw them selling the rights for below the market value simply to try and attract these types of streaming companies and reduce the reliance on broadcast.
