According to Deadline, Amazon thinks Twitch's chat will let viewers share their own thoughts on the match live. (Good luck with that) It will be the first time Twitch has ever shown live Premier League Football.
Pitch-side coverage will be brought by Gabby Logan, along with Roberto Martinez and Lee Dixon. Clive Tyldesley, Jon Champion, Peter Drury, and Ally McCoist will line up in the commentary box. Amazon will also be supplementing broadcasts with simulated crowd noise from EA Sports (who make FIFA), using a technology it is calling 'Stadium Atmosphere.'
