Massive rescheduling of Arsenal games to satisfy TV

Eight Arsenal games rescheduled to fit TV demands

Eight Arsenal games have had to be rescheduled due to TV scheduling for Sky Sports, BT Sports and Amazon Prime.

Obviously there is an inconvenience for fans but that has never bothered the game authorities.

Anyway, here are the rescheduled games and TV times direct from Arsenal.com

Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion
Date: Thursday, December 5 (originally Tuesday, December 3)
Kick off: 8.15pm
Broadcast: Amazon Prime Video

West Ham United v Arsenal
Date: Monday, December 9 (originally Saturday, December 7)
Kick off: 8pm
Broadcast: Sky Sports

Arsenal v Manchester City
Date: Sunday, December 15 (originally Saturday, December 14)
Kick off: 4.30pm
Broadcast: Sky Sports

Everton v Arsenal
Date: Saturday, December 21
Kick off: 12.30pm (originally 3pm)
Broadcast: BT Sport

Arsenal v Chelsea
Date: Sunday, December 29 (originally Saturday, December 28)
Kick off: 2pm
Broadcast: Sky Sports

Arsenal v Manchester United
Date: Wednesday, January 1
Kick off: 8pm (originally 3pm)
Broadcast: BT Sport

Crystal Palace v Arsenal
Date: Saturday, January 11
Kick off: 12.30pm (originally 3pm)
Broadcast: BT Sport

Chelsea v Arsenal
Date: Tuesday, January 21 (originally Wednesday, January 22)
Kick off: 8.15pm

Some massive games in there and for Arsenal fans that will watch the game on TV, it is fantastic. But you will need at least three TV services to watch all the games and that is not cheap.

My understanding of the changes is the introduction of Amazon prime into the market. This apparently created an added complication when scheduling.

This is modern football where TV takes priority and in all fairness, they do pay the big bucks. Still annoying though.

    1. ๐Ÿ‘ ,Iโ€™ve steamed football for the last 5years , refuse to pay sky ..I remember when it was 16 quid ..how times change .
      Iโ€™m not tight just find it a huge waste of money when you can watch any sport of your chosen online .

  2. Thank goodness for SuperSport

  3. Don’t have Amazon prime ๐Ÿ˜† sky and cable is a rip off!

  4. All 3 services ain’t cheap – tell me about it!! Why have Amazon got involved?

    1. To sit amongst the big boys ๐Ÿ™„

      1. Well, I was going to say Good Ebening Kevin (been dying to say that ๐Ÿคฃ) bit late though!
        That’ll seem weird watching it on there… and I wonder who the commentators will be!

        1. Likely a couple of pickers from their warehouse or drivers doing a bit of overtime๐Ÿ˜œ

          1. Haha most possibly Declan ๐Ÿ‘

          2. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Brilliant, Declan ๐Ÿ‘

        2. First of all good ebening we must continue our way our process ๐Ÿ˜‚ good ebening haha. I don’t think I’ve ever watched prime video Sue maybe Jeff Bezos will commentate ? ๐Ÿ˜›

          1. It’s alright.. but if I’m honest I prefer Netflix ๐Ÿคฃ
            I had to google who that is ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

          2. I much prefer he bought the club he’s got a few extra quid roaming around his mariana trench pockets ๐Ÿ˜‚ but will Netflix host games ? The way things are going probably some time soon ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

          3. Christ, those pockets sound huge!! ๐Ÿ˜€
            Well you never know, Kev!

          4. 110 billion deep long ๐Ÿ˜‚ he makes Kroenke look like a welfare case ๐Ÿ˜† I recommended that film you’re next to my sister, she said it was excellent, I still haven’t seen it ๐Ÿ˜„

          5. Spot on! She likes a good slash ’em up too then!!
            I’ve been bingeing on Netflix again! How about you?

          6. Well she loved quiet place too so it’s 2 out of 2 Sue ๐Ÿ˜… not sure she’s obsessed with GOT and Walking dead though and I mean obsessed haha. I’ve begun supernatural the final season, 2 episodes in just waiting for 3 and 4 (I watch 2 at a time) PL tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜„ by the time we kick off on Monday it’ll only be 19 days until the squad breaks up for another international break ๐Ÿ˜’

          7. Omg the final season?! There I was thinking you were gonna make it last (longer than Cobra Kai!!) ๐Ÿ˜€
            I’m so glad it’s back, Kev.. been so crap without it ๐Ÿ˜ด I’m working this weekend so will catch the 2nd half of the early game.. I’ll be glued to the tv all day ๐Ÿ˜‚ 19 days?? Bloody hell, what a pisser

          8. Still not seen all that yet Sue ๐Ÿ˜ฎ but Im a much bigger Supernatural fan than cobra Kai although I seen a black cobra Kai hoodie on eBay that I’m gonna order ๐Ÿ˜‚ final season can’t believe it been watching it so long ๐Ÿ˜ฅ just the 19 days but it is the final break until march thank you LORD ๐Ÿ˜‚ I don’t even know who’s playing tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‚ dreading Monday though, a cold night in Sheffield under the lights can Emery’s men handle that ? Couldn’t handle Watford who sit bottom of the pile although it was very warm too warm for Mr Ceballos I heard he’s looking to go back to Seville as London is too hot ๐Ÿ˜‚

          9. Well I can’t imagine you getting a CK tattoo anytime soon! Everton v West Ham is the early game. Loads at 3.. not sure about the late one though. I’m dreading Monday too.. especially with Gollum ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. No haha definitely not ๐Ÿ˜‚ looks like a nailed on draw to me Sue what you think? Crystal pal v Man City ? Hahaha guessing you saw my comment ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
