The Premier League’s decision to create a new broadcasting package during the last domestic broadcasting rights will come into practical effect in December with internet streaming giants Amazon showing two AFC Bournemouth matches via their service.
Both Sky Sports and BT Sport have also opted to select Cherries cames during the festive period of December, overall during the latest batch of live broadcast games, AFC Bournemouth have had five fixtures moved during the course of December through to the middle of January.
The first game to be moved is the trip to Crystal Palace, this was scheduled for Wednesday 4th December, but has now been moved to the Tuesday 3rd December and given a 7.30 pm kick-off. This game will be streamed on Amazon.
The Boxing Day game at Dean Court against Arsenal will also be streamed on Amazon, but this remains a 3 pm kick-off, to the delight of the traditional festive Boxing Day fan.
There will however be less than 48 hours recovery time for Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth squad as they now travel to Brighton & Hove Albion for an early kick-off at 12.30 pm on Saturday 28th December, with the game on Sky Sports.
On New Years Day, AFC Bournemouth make a rare appearance on BT Sport with the trip to West Ham United. This game will kick off at 5.30 pm.
The final game selected for broadcasting during this period is the home fixture against Watford, Sky Sports have selected this game and have moved it to kick-off at 2 pm on Sunday 12th January.
I’m liking that Brighton move. That kick-off time reminds me of absolutely robbing them with that Fletcher penalty. Personally, I think it’s the best time for Brighton away on the beer assuming the trains are working. – Join the conversation, click here.
