This is how fans reacted to the latest Premier League TV selections confirmed for January and February…

@afcstu1978: 8pm on a Saturday is a complete piss take, especially when away fans have to travel about 250 miles. Glad the FA/Premier League/TV companies cared about the fans when the Super League was mooted!!!

@pabbrooky: Another 12.30 lfc… absolute piss take #agenda

@CathalRobinson: Another 12.30 kick off, am sure Jurgen will be delighted, think their doing it deliberately at this stage

@Matty_Woolley: Newcastle having an 8pm kick off away at Arsenal on a Saturday is criminal.

@Luke_Seychell: This is getting fucking ridiculous, I just want to watch my team (Crystal Palace) play on a Saturday at 3pm. Stop moving us to weekdays at night. No care for the fans at all.

@UzziMajid: If I’m not wrong, this will be the first time Brentford have had a Saturday 12:30 KO at home televised since being promoted in 2021.

@ryandavid97: Another shite time for away fans. Broadcasters have been horrendous this season #nufc

@laeton_ts: Got to be fucking kidding, 8 clock on a Saturday in London? Pisstake that man fuck sake #nufc

@mikesedgefield: Absolute joke 3rd away Saturday 8pm kick off with no way of getting back in public transport #nufc

@thejamieherd: Thinking of the fans YET AGAIN

@LfcSinpo: Newcastle magically getting a TNT game and being 8pm Saturday instead of early kick off? Again? Saudi money is talking

@may29054147: monday night palace away. could get long + how is spurs chelsea a friday night game that is fucking criminal

@daveysarm10: Unless the @premierleague sorts out the transport issues with train and coach companies these 8pm kick offs are not fair on fans. We’re at home this time but bringing Newcastle down with no viable transport to get home is once again ignoring the match going fans for TV ūüöģ

Amazon Prime Video boasted two rounds of games prior to Christmas. Viewers were allowed to advantage of a 30-day free trial, which included free next-day delivery across the Amazon store.

Why is there a Saturday football blackout in the UK for live streams and TV broadcasts?

Since before the formation of the Premier League, Saturday 3pm kick offs have been forbidden to be televised in the UK, with broadcasters only allowed to show early and late matches on national TV.

Though the 3pm kick off is the slot in which the majority of weekend matches are played with a number of games happening at the same time,¬†they are never broadcast live on television due to the ‚Äėfootball blackout‚Äô.

The United Kingdom is the only place to prohibit the broadcast of 3pm Saturday kick offs.

The 3pm blackout is said to be tradition, with Sky Sports‚Äô Soccer Saturday¬†‚Äď the go to show where a panel of pundits report in-game action to viewers with none of the match footage actually being showed.

This is also why ratings for Match of the Day remain ever-popular, though numbers are made tougher to achieve due to online streams, footage of goals appearing within seconds online and highlights uploaded to Sky Sports’ YouTube just after 5pm Saturdays.

Major European leagues in France, Spain, Germany and Italy don’t observe such a blackout, and there has been sufficient evidence to prove that closed periods do not affect the outcome of lower league football match attendance.

If anything, you’re more likely to watch more Premier League games if your based in North America or Asia rather than your own country (UK), despite the England priding themselves as a nation who are the home of football.

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher in heated Tottenham debate | Football News  | Sky Sports

In February 2011,¬†Advocate General Kokott¬†of the¬†European Court of Justice¬†launched an investigation into the ‚Äúclosed periods‚ÄĚ and concluded that they did not affect match attendance at lower league games.

‚ÄúIt is, in fact, doubtful whether closed periods are capable of encouraging attendance at matches and participation in matches,‚Ä̬†she¬†said in a statement¬†.

“Both activities have a completely different quality to the following of a live transmission on television. It has not been adequately shown to the Court that the closed periods actually encourage attendance at and participation in matches.

‚ÄúNo closed periods were adopted in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, or in Northern Ireland, that is to say, within the sphere of influence of English football.‚ÄĚ

In 2016, Ofcom launched an investigation into the rights of televised football and surveyed football fans about whether they wanted to see a change.
