Armchair fans will be able to watch four Premier League matches back to back for the first time next season with Amazon Prime planning a Boxing Day marathon of programming from midday until 10pm.

The streaming service has won the rights to broadcast two entire rounds of fixtures for the next three seasons and reached an agreement with the Premier League to schedule four different kick-off times for the Boxing Day programme, including a televised match at 3pm for the first time.

Amazon Prime will make all ten matches available via the red button on both of their packages, with the first being a midweek round on December 3 and 4.
