Amazon Prime Video, unlike Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV+ and Disney+, continues to embrace live sports programming. Prime streams NFL Thursday Night Football, in addition to select Major League Baseball games.

Now in the United Kingdom, Prime Video has struck a distribution deal with online BT TV service in time for Premier League soccer.

New and renewing BT TV subscribers will get free six-month access to Prime Video, which includes Amazon’s first live streaming of England’s top professional soccer league.
