How to Stream Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video

Football fans are used to changing the channel if they want to watch games. The NFL eagerly slices up its schedule to sell to major TV networks, such as CBS, FOX, and NBC. With streaming video services more popular than ever, that creates more online platforms striving to get in on the gridiron action. And few companies are more powerful online than Amazon.

Amazon Prime Video has the exclusive rights to air Thursday Night Football(Opens in a new window) games for the next 11 years. Prime Video costs $8.99, or you can get it as part of your larger Amazon Prime subscription for $14.99 per month or $139 per year (there are no extra fees for NFL streaming). Here’s everything you need to know before the show debuts on Sept. 15.

Football exclusively airing on an online streaming service is a big deal, but the experience ultimately shouldn’t be too different for most viewers. Instead of hopping to a specific traditional broadcast channel, simply fire up the Prime Video app already downloaded to your smart TV or media streaming device. You can even watch on the Amazon-owned video game live streaming platform Twitch. Stream the game live or check out the replay afterward.
