Crystal Palace and Newcastle fans rage as Amazon Prime goes down with game being broadcast on Black Friday

FOOTY fans were left furious after Amazon Prime crashed during Crystal Palace's game against Newcastle.

Some supporters were greeted with an error message as they tried to watch the Premier League clash on Black Friday.

Every top-flight game for the remainder of 2020 will be shown live on either BBC, Sky Sports, BT Sport or Amazon Prime Video.

But Amazon were forced to publicly apologise after they were bombarded with complaints from disgruntled fans.

Supporters claimed the stream was behind, lagging and even 'not even in HD' as they tried to watch Palace take on Steve Bruce's side.

Others were greeted with an 'Error 6085' message and were unable to watch any of the game.

One furious fan tweeted: "Who's idea was it to give Amazon broadcasting rights, it's absolutely awful. Always lagging, about two minutes behind and not even in HD."

Another said: "Amazon Prime just lost all credibility when it comes to football coverage for @premierleague in the space of an hour. Nobody will tune in again."

And one claimed: "Literally everyone getting error 6085 on their TVs and haven't seen a single minute."

Amazon Prime Video Sport wrote: "We are seeing reports that some customers may be having trouble watching Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United.

"We apologise for any interruption, we are actively investigating and will update as soon as possible.

"Meanwhile, you may want to try accessing via a different device."

Amazon are set to show 20 matches a season in the UK for the next three years as part of their £90million deal with the Premier League.
