If you have a paid subscription, you have a great advantage. Because some of the big football duels are accessible to all Amazon Prime members. Whether a game of UEFA Champions League on Prime today is running, you can see an overview of the following broadcast dates.
Champions League and Amazon Prime: That’s behind it
The fact that you can even experience the UEFA Champions League on Prime is not the case for that long. The streaming provider, together with DAZN, only took over the corresponding transmission rights from Sky for the 2021/2022 season. A few games are now available for live streaming with a few restrictions:
“These will be the games from the playoffs through to the semifinals. Prime Video will be on Tuesday [um 21 Uhr] show a game of a German team as long as a German team is participating in the competition.”
The special advantage: As a regular Prime member, you will not incur any additional costs in Germany despite taking over the licenses. Only subscribers in German-speaking areas such as Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg are excluded from this.
According to Amazon, if you do not yet have a Prime membership, you can also take out a 30-day free trial month to watch the Champions League games.
Does the Champions League still exist on Prime today?
Every Tuesday from 9 p.m you can expect “the best game of the group stage”, as Amazon puts it. The following broadcast dates and games are pending in this regard for the time being. The respective preliminary reporting always begins at 7:30 p.m.
Known dates of the Champions League today and later on Prime:
- Tuesday February 15th (9pm) – Paris St Germain vs Real Madrid
- Tuesday February 22nd (9pm) – Chelsea vs Lille OSC
- Tuesday March 8th (9:00 p.m.) – FC Bayern Munich vs. FC Salzburg
- Tuesday March 15th (9:00 p.m.) – Manchester United vs Atlético Madrid
The listed games are games of the round of 16. Prime Video will then announce all other games broadcast from the group phase of the Champions League in the coming weeks. It will then be the respective top games in the quarterfinals and semifinals, which Amazon will broadcast live with the right to vote first.
The distribution of the broadcasting rights has one disadvantage: If you also want to watch the final and the remaining games, you cannot do so on Amazon Prime Video. A subscription to DAZN is required for this. It’s getting expensive there, because DAZN recently doubled the prices.
What other content can I watch in addition to the live games?
In addition to the above-mentioned top Champions League games, Prime Video has a live highlight show for fans in the program immediately afterwards. The highlights of all the games played on Tuesday will be presented there.
Otherwise, you can look forward to a few highlights with Amazon Prime in February 2022. But subscribers can also expect other advantages as part of their Prime membership. 6 free games at Prime Gaming for example. Underneath the title “Golazo! Soccer League” (2018).
