What is Goals Centre on Amazon Prime football? AMAZON are new to football broadcasting and on the whole are keeping things very familiar for UK audiences.
Goals Centre is very much like BT's Champions League goal show or the NFL Redzone. As Amazon Prime is streaming only, it allows the company to provide dedicated streams to each game - and the Goals Centre is seperate to these. Hosted by Match of the Day commentator Steve Bower, it will show you every goal to go in around the grounds, as well as any big talking points. Amazon are showing a bumper festive schedule on Boxing Day and the Goals Centre will run for 12 straight hours.
