Virgin Media customers will be able to watch all of Amazon Prime Video’s 20 Premier League matches in December via their TV set top box, with some matches available in 4K Ultra HD.

Amazon Prime Video, which is the only way football fans can watch Premier League fixtures broadcast next week (3 – 5 December) and on Boxing Day, launched on Virgin Media's TV platform in July.

Virgin Media’s ultrafast, reliable connectivity provides the UK’s fastest widely available broadband speeds meaning football fans can stream multiple matches in confidence while other family members simultaneously play games online, video chat or browse the web.

Virgin Media customers that have signed up for Prime Video don’t need to switch TV input, insert a USB stick into their TV or change remote, all of the action can be viewed through the integrated Amazon Prime Video app on the Virgin TV V6 set top box.

The V6 box also supports 4K UHD programming, meaning Virgin Media customers can enjoy any 4K Ultra HD matches in the highest picture quality right from the comfort of their sofa.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “We are saving football fans the hassle this Christmas with our winning combination of ultrafast broadband connectivity and powerful 4K V6 box providing the best match-day experience for Amazon’s Prime Video Premier League fixtures. With all of the Premier League matches from Sky, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video in one place, Virgin Media is top of the league for football on TV this festive season.”

In August, research showed that football fans could save £450 when choosing Virgin Media over Sky and bundling Sky Sports and BT Sport with broadband and landline services.

The latest Virgin Media Black Friday deals, which include the Ultimate Oomph bundle for just £79 per month, can be seen here.
