“NFL games are the most watched live programming in the US, and this unprecedented Thursday Night Football package gives tens of millions of new and existing Prime members exclusive access to must-see live football on Prime Video,” said Mike Hopkins, SVP of Prime Video and Amazon Studios, said. “NFL fans from across the country enjoy a world-class viewing experience of Thursday Night Football and access to a wide variety of content, including award-winning Amazon Originals available on Prime Video.”
Amazon Prime Video distributed its first simulcast of TNF during the 2017 season. In 2020, the existing TNF package with 11 games was expanded to include an exclusive regular season game per year. The San Francisco 49ers against the Arizona Cardinals on December 26, 202 was the first of these games.
The NFL and Amazon have a growing relationship, and the league has used Amazon Web Services as its official cloud and machine learning provider for next gen stats.
To keep up with the commitment to make games available on television for free, every TNF game will be broadcast in the participating teams’ home markets.
