Premier League matches to be shown for free on YouTube in coronavirus broadcasting plan
A source involved in the discussions said: “The idea is that all the games would be available somewhere to watch as they are behind closed doors and YouTube is the obvious platform to show some games for free. Amazon would have the ability to get some games as they are a live broadcast licence holder as well.
“Both Sky and BT will be very unhappy if it is decided to scrap relegation. There are always some great relegation battles at this point in the season which are brilliant entertainment.
“For example Norwich have matches still to play against Watford, West Ham and Brighton. If there’s no relegation then they are meaningless.”
Decisions on how many matches will be shown for free via YouTube, or other similar platforms, will be made following talks between broadcasters and the government.
