Every game should be available live through one subscription package.

MLB.tv is the standard that the Premier League should be aiming for

Couldn`t log on to the broadcast so phoned amazon and was advised to buy a firestick.
So this could all be a sales push for them.

Yeah I tried to watch via the Prime video built into the telly but it just wouldn’t work, then I tried the fire stick and it worked (though it buffers occasionally).

It worked on my smart TV.

So we now need to subscribe to SKY, BT and Amazon to watch all the televised football. I have had SKY since 1991 but haven't succumbed to BT Sport yet. I might have a tough time trying to convince my wife we need BT and Prime to go alongside SKY.

Tell her that you're signing up to Amazon Prime so she can shop to her heart's content on Amazon with free next Day delivery.

It'll cost you an absolute fortune but at least she won't know you've only done it for the football!

Thought it was average at best, had it on my Amazon Fire box, picture was clear enough but the frame rate was poor, the picture seemed quite juddery at times

Had a really good picture via Amazon Prime on Xbox One. The stream cut out a couple of times but I would say any quality issues may be down to broadband speed. I’ve recently been able to upgrade to over 30mbs but know it would have been very poor on old 2mbs Sky broadband.

I use DAZN for about £7 a month. I can watch any game I want to, but rarely watch anyone other than our beloved club.

Is that a legit service?

I desperately want shot of Virgin as im paying a fortune for basically hundreds of shit channels I never watch

It's legit in Japan, though as PWS pointed out, it's probably not legit in the UK, though. The mobdro app on Android and hesgoal work pretty well here, too.

Had a superb picture on a 4K Samsung TV at home, but the action was about a minute behind the feed while watching it via Amazon on a laptop.

I watched it on a 100 ft high IMAX cinema screen in my back garden, with the bloke next door singing shit Chelsea songs, and the stream was so fast I saw all the goals 5 minutes before they actually happened!!

Fucking rubbish coverage. Wanted Villa to win and they couldn't even manage that.

Showing all the matches means you really spread the commentary/presenters and pundits thin and the less said about most of them for ours the better. Apart from Andy Townsend and the commentator the other three knew absolutely nothing about us or our club, and what they knew about Chelsea seemed to revolve around John Terry, utterly cringe inducing.

Fine on the firestick Wednesday, a bit pixelated on the xbox last night.
