It's a huge night on Tyneside as Newcastle United take on Norwich City at St. James' Park in a Premier League relegation six-pointer.

Both clubs are languishing at the wrong end of the table with Eddie Howe's side still to register their first win of the season.

The Canaries have managed a bounceback of late, with new manager Dean Smith taking the reigns, and are unbeaten in three.

Should Norwich take the three points tonight, the side will leapfrog Burnley in the Premier League table to move level with 17th placed Leeds on points.

A win for Newcastle would see the club move out of 20th place, to overtake Norwich on goal difference.

If you can't make it to St. James' Park tonight, here's how to watch the game for free on Amazon Prime Video.

What time is kick-off?

It's important to note the unusual time for the Newcastle United vs Norwich City kick-off.

Midweek matches normally start under the lights at 8 pm or, occasionally, 7:45 pm.

However, this evening the action will get underway at 7:30 pm.

The change comes due to broadcast rights.

What channel is Newcastle United vs Norwich City on?

Premier League fans have become accustomed to forking out for Sky Sports and BT Sport subscriptions to watch matches in recent years.

However, even if you have those subscriptions, you won't have access to watch the match this evening.

Instead, it is being broadcast on online video platform Amazon Prime Video.

What is Amazon Prime Video?

Prime Video has been available in the UK ever since 2014 and has seen a real boost in recent years, especially in sports broadcasts.

Prime Video famously bought the right to stream Emma Raducanu's magnificent US open triumph earlier this year.

The service has been showing occasional Premier League matches, often midweek games, since the 2019/20 season.
