How to watch Man Utd vs Newcastle for free as part of the Amazon Prime Boxing Day fixtures

A total of 10 Premier League fixtures will be broadcast on December 26 and 27 via Amazon's streaming service

 Following the somewhat mixed reaction to the first Premier League games broadcast on Amazon Prime at the start of December, with buffering issues and delays, we’re now gearing up to see if the next round of fixtures fare better.

A total of 10 Premier League matches will be broadcast on 26 and 27 December via Amazon’s streaming service and all games are given equal billing, being broadcast simultaneously in the UK and available on any smart device including phones, tablets, games consoles, the Fire TV Stick, select Smart TVs and more.

The biggest Boxing Day fixtures coming to Amazon Prime are Manchester United vs Newcastle United at 5:30pm, followed by what could be a major title decider when Leicester host Liverpool at 8:00pm. You can get the full list of Boxing Day and 27 December fixtures on our how to watch the Premier League for free page.

Man Utd’s last Amazon Prime fixture saw Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s young team beat Spurs 2-1, while Newcastle beat Sheffield United 2-0. 

If you’re already an Amazon Prime subscriber, these games are included in the price of your subscription. If you’re not a subscriber, and haven’t signed up previously, you’ll get a free trial meaning you can effectively watch the ten matches for free, as long as you remember to cancel your subscription by the end of the trial period.

How to get Amazon Prime Video

Amazon offers three ways to watch Premier League games on Amazon Prime, depending on what you want to pay for.  

A standalone Amazon Prime Video subscription costs £5.99/mth. It lets you watch all Prime Video content, including hit series like Jack Ryan, Carnival Row and other sporting events like the recently-concluded Nitto ATP Tour tennis championships, but doesn’t come with any of Amazon Prime’s other benefits.

If you want to take advantage of these extras, you’ll pay a little more. A monthly subscription to Amazon Prime – which comes with Amazon Prime Video as well as free one-day delivery on millions of items, Prime Music, free Kindle books with Prime ReadingPrime WardrobeAmazon Pantry, and more – is £7.99/mth. 

Get a monthly Amazon Prime subscription


Alternatively, a yearly subscription costs £79. The only difference between the two plans is that the monthly subscription gives you the flexibility to cancel at any time without paying for more than you want, but over the course of the year you pay a total of £96.

Whereas you pay less in total for a yearly Amazon Prime subscription but if you cancel before the 12 months is up, you won’t be refunded any months you’ve not used. Be aware that both come with automatic renewals as standard.

If this is you and you still want to watch these games, you’ll need to use a good VPN service. A VPN (or ‘virtual private network’) masks your exact location and therefore can be used to trick whatever device you’re using to watch the football that you’re still in the UK.
