Amazon now have Premier League rights

Buckle up football fans because now you can watch your favourite multinational entertainment company on another broadcaster! This time it's online, providing you with reason to sign up for another monthly subscription service you only really use to watch episodes of the US Office.

The deal that Amazon made was to get 20 games of Premier League action, which sounds pretty good before you realise that those are for two of the rounds of 10 games midweek, which all happen at the same time. Luckily, the many thousands of people who forgot to cancel their free Prime membership will now have the opportunity to enjoy Wolves vs Southampton, a 1-1 spectacular in stuttering HD, broadcast live to their iPad they dropped and smashed into bits one night while smashed.

Alternatively they could stream it online like people do. The thing I love most about being a human is the consumerism.
