Amazon Premier League streaming debut is plagued with buffering issues for some users

Fans are hoping it will be fixed by tomorrow.

Amazon Prime has made its Premier League streaming debut and customers have had a chance to see how well Amazon performs at streaming live football games.

The coverage of Tuesday's two fixtures began at 7pm London Time, with Crystal Palace competing against Bournemouth in the first of the evening's kick-offs at 7.30pm.

Amazon Prime will be streaming 20 Premier League fixtures throughout December.

Amazon signed a £90 million ($116 million) deal with the Premier League to show 20 matches a season in the UK for the next three years and was supposed to be a great way to get customers to sign up to Amazon Prime as the games will be exclusive to Amazon Prime Video.

But customers haven't all been entirely pleased with the experience.

It's not just the extra subscription that customers have been complaining about – many customers are having technical issues with streaming the game over their internet. 








We're receiving reports that Amazon says it's only affecting a small number of users.

However, not everyone is having a negative experience. Many have praised Amazon for the extra features that they've provided with the service, such as options to see stats.


With a full six matches to be broadcast tomorrow evening, many are hoping that any issues are going to be fixed by then.
