Four Premier League games will be broadcast, free to air, live on BBC Sport when the season resumes.
It is the first time since the Premier League's inception in 1992 that games will have been shown live by the BBC.
On Thursday it was announced that the league is set to restart on 17 June, subject to government approval.
"This opportunity creates an historic moment for the BBC and our audiences," director of BBC Sport, Barbara Slater said.
"At a time when sports fans across the country are in need of a lift, this is very welcome news."
As well as the four live games there will be additional Match of the Day highlight programmes.
The last time a live, top-flight league football match was broadcast on the BBC was during the 1987-88 season.

Live BBC fixtures
  • Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace (7.45pm, Saturday 20 June)
  • Norwich vs Everton (6pm, Wednesday 24 June)
  • Norwich vs Manchester United (8.15pm, Saturday 27 June) *FA Cup
  • Newcastle vs Manchester City (6pm, Sunday 28 June) *FA Cup
  • Southampton v Manchester City (7pm Sunday 5 July)

The remaining 92 Premier League matches, which have been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, are due to take place behind closed doors and will all be broadcast live on either the BBC, BT Sport,Sky Sports or Amazon Prime Video. The competition will resume on 17 June.
Viewers without pay TV subscriptions will still be able to watch the season run-in. Amazon has announced that its four remaining fixtures will be available for free, while Sky also plans to make 25 of its 64 remaining games free-to-air.
“Like the rest of the country, we are excited to see the Premier League return to action,” said Alex Green, managing director of Prime Video Sport Europe. “We will be making all four of Amazon Prime Video’s additional fixtures in the 2019/20 season available free of charge; fans will not need a Prime membership to view the games on Prime Video.”

*I'll update with the remaining two Premier League fixtures as soon as possible

Something like 60 United games in a row picked by the bbc isn't it? And I thought they were supposed to be impartial.

So you don’t need a Prime account to watch the matches?
Sky 25 games will be made free-to-air BBC Sport will air 4 games same as Amazon Prime. That means, in total, 33 of the remaining 92 matches will be free to air.

BT = No free games to air

Strange, as BT sports right was bought using TAX SUBSIDIES for Openreach broadband for UK spread coverage that was never delivered.

So, utter cack? I guess that rumour of them getting “10th pick” is likely to be true.
I do not have an aerial is there anyway to get the pick tv channel for the games sky is providing for free?
Confused - does "free to air" mean no charges or special set up ie. Freeview (BBC or ITV) or is the list above being passed to Freeview by SKY, BT etc? If not how can SKY, BT or AMAZON be free to air as they all need subscription membership. If only 4 matches are free to air on the BBC how is this possible a decent thing to do for the public. This is just a money maker for SKY, BT etc, once again. After all we have been through and the monies the Premiership have continued to pay their players you would have thought the rest of the season should be free to everyone via BBC or ITV.

Free to air just means the video stream is not encrypted and can be viewed by anyone with the appropriate equipment, ie. a dish and box for Sky, an aerial and box for Freeview.

With Now TV there could be a chance Sky show the games on Sky 1 available on the Entertainment Pass (they have shown a few games free on Sky 1 this season before this pandemic happened, I remember it happening early season and during Christmas). Afaik it’s confirmed on the Pick TV channel.
Pretty sure I read the other day that the Everton Liverpool game is free to view on one of the platforms as the police had asked it to be.

I’m done with football
When all the free matches have been confirmed, it would be great to get a calendar ics or equivalent to just add them to our calendars.

Thanks for collating these.
