AFAIK they haven't announced a date, but this article says "summer 2019":

Re: Amazon prime on virgin media

The announcement was made in April by Liberty Global but there's been no update. You could argue that summer has yet to arrive.

My guess is it will be July or start if August so they can still claim to be the only place to have all the football now that from this summer Amazon will be showing some games

Re: Amazon prime on virgin media

No need to be desperate as you can just buy an Amazon Fire TV stick for £39.95 from Argos. I got this stick last year for the US Open which was streamed live (and will be streamed in 2019 as well) and other tennis tournaments such as the 2019 Miami Open were also streamed live. I believe the first Premier League match to be streamed will be Arsenal v Brighton on 3 December.

You might be able to get the stick at a discount on Amazon Prime Day 2019 (probably in July) or in one of the Autumn sales.

Re: Amazon prime on virgin media

I got an Amazon Fire Stick because I wanted to watch The Man In The High Castle. And I also get Spotify on the Firestick, which is really good because VM took Spotify off their platform a few years ago.
