Football fans can rejoice now that controversial premier league pay-per-view games have been scrapped for the rest of the year. All matches are no to be broadcast live until New Year at least.

Fans were outraged when the Premier League announced that they would air certain games on a pay-per-view model from October 1st 2020.

This meant that games normally aired live on Sky, BT, BBC or Amazon (which are all paid services anyway) were now going to be subject to further charges on a pay-per-view basis.

The cost of watching a pay-per-view Permier League Match was £14.95

With fans still banned from stadiums, the prospect of paying an additional £14.95 to watch their teams in action was a step too far.

Thankfully the league has made a screeching u-turn and has now promised that all games until the end of the year at least (including the busy holiday fixtures) will be aired as normal on one of the 4 services.

The row over pay-per-view Premier League matches could continue in the New Year

Don't hold your breath yet though because there could still be changes ahead because a statement from the Premier League said the agreement will be reviewed in the new year following consultation with clubs and broadcast partners. Yikes!

The statement went on to say 'The Premier League and our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible.'

Fans too are committed to returning to stadiums when safe but in the meantime, they don't want to get hammered with extravagant costs just to see their team play.

Richard Masters, the Premier League's chief executive defended their decision to make certain games pay-per-view saying the £14.95 charge was 'defensible'. BT Sport also backed their plans citing the need to cover their costs.
