Amazon Prime is to launch a new weekly studio entertainment show about the most-watched sports league in the world, the Premier League.
‘Back of the Net’ will launch this summer to coincide with the beginning of the new football season through to Prime Video’s exclusive live broadcast of matches in December 2019.
Episodes of Back of the Net will be released on Tuesdays after each Premier League round.
The show, which will feature a live studio audience, will be presented by legendary footballer Peter Crouch, comedian John Bishop and broadcaster Gabby Logan.
Each week, the trio will look back at the latest matches and forward to the next, with smart, humorous debate on the big talking points, and with a few games along the way.
In December 2019, Prime Video will offer live and exclusive Premier League matches available on Prime Video in the UK, completely free with a Prime membership.
The offering comprises of two full fixture rounds – the early December mid-week games on 3-5th December and the Boxing Day fixtures on 26-27th December – featuring live coverage of every Premier League team meaning fans of every single Premier League club will be guaranteed to watch their team play twice on Prime Video.
“While our live Premier League coverage in December will of course focus on the action, we wanted to bring back the humour and quirkiness of a studio show based on the nation’s favourite sport,” said Alex Green, MD Sports, Prime Video.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that Peter, Gabby and John will be our regular hosts, offering their wit, banter and anecdotes, every week of the season.”
Amazon Prime is available to UK customers for £79.00 a year or £7.99 a month.
