    I have an Amazon voucher which I have saved for this month. The thing is, do I really want to watch us play at the moment?

    Or should I put it towards something else.

    It's great.

    I'm really looking forward to a 7.30 kick off on a Thursday night.

    It’s ridiculous that the games are across so many different platforms. They should all just be on one platform.

    You get a months free trial with prime if it’s first time you’ve used it so I guess a lot will do that?

    I have Prime anyway so at least I can get my money's worth.

    Ridiculous situation with this and VAR though. It's like they're doing everything possible to piss off the match-going fan.

    I don't understand how it being on Amazon Prime effects the match-going fan? There are always rounds of midweek games in the Premier League, whether it's on Sky or Amazon makes no difference.

    Changing kick off times to 7:30pm absolutely has an affect on the match going fan. It's tight for me getting there for kick off after work when its 8pm.

    Because they've dicked about with the kick-off times.

    Our match with Bournemouth is half an hour earlier than our usual midweek games. We specifically kick off at 8pm midweek as the London traffic is so bad and many people barely make KO. I know several not bothering tomorrow as they won't get to their seat 'til almost half-time.

    I'd rather have it on there because you can have numerous profiles on one account and watch it on different devices at the same time. I got my free Amazon Prime trial yesterday and I am using it on the app on my xbox and it doesn't look like you can do that. It is retarded if it can't be done. I'm still trying to figure it all out though.

    Didn't realise they'd shifted kick off time, apologies.

    Seems daft that they're hosting the games around Christmas time considering the vast majority who don't have Prime will be taking out their trial/paid subscriptions that time of year anyway to get gifts delivered :laugh:

    My missus gets it for something ridiculous like £3 a month now she is a student so sound for me.

    The kickoff time is the most frustrating thing, I don't really have much care for who is broadcasting it but 15 minutes makes a big difference in travel time after work.

    I was quite happy they pushed back the Champions League kick offs to 8 for the same reason.

    The Amazon Boxing Day games are little better, particularly with the lack of trains available. Not sure I'll be getting to a 12:30 kickoff v Brighton.

    Amazon is actually better for it. Technically Netflix allow you to use multiple devices but only allow you to watch the same thing at the same time. Amazon Prime allows you to watch different things at the same time in different devices. I've gave my account details to my parents and they use it, so that's different programs at different addresses on different devices.
    The prime TV app is shit though.

    Netflix let you watch different things on different devices at the same time too.

    Just please remember match going supporters are not the only people who want to watch games, and they shouldnt be either. It shouldnt be exclusive to people in the stadium.

    In the modern world there is millions who want to watch games.

    I personally think every EPL game should be aired and the amazon prime thing is good where every game is aired for two match schedules.

    If you think this messes up people in a stadium, the first thing is I expect prices would be a lot "higher" to attend if there was no tv income. I doubt one would be buying EPL tickets for £30 if there was no tv money.

    Obviously I would prefer if the deals were of much lower value as I think they have hit insanity levels, but I dont think aired games are bad in general.

    Also for schedule changes, are people really that rigid because they cannot do something at an exact time they used to?

    Also I do think games needs to be on one platform only, this nonsense started a while back where supposedly for competition purposes they couldnt award all games to one supplier aka sky, and since then the consumer has to pay even more and have more hassle to get games as its split across different platforms, and of course as predicted it didnt do anything good for prices as why would it.

    For me I want an option on lcfc.com to watch all games live, or failing that it all should be one platform only such as sky and every EPL game, not just a fraction of them. The problem with sky tho is they are a schedule based legacy provider, so when it comes to adding games, they would want to spread them out over the day instead of everyone playing at the same time and choose game via red button. So they probably not the ideal provider, someone like amazon is better as they dont seem to mind just having all games on at same time and then choosing the one to watch. This also puts less changes to schedules than the sky method.
