Football fans with Amazon Prime will be able to stream Thursday Night Football during the 2018-2019 season.
The NFL and Amazon have renewed their partnership to deliver a live, digital stream of games on Thursday nights. Amazon Prime will stream 11 Thursday Night Football, presented by Bud Light, games broadcast by FOX. The streams will simultaneously cast on the NFL Network and FOX Deportes.
“Amazon was a tremendous partner for ‘Thursday Night Football’ in 2017 and as we continue our mission of delivering NFL games to fans whether they watch on television or on digital platforms, we are excited to work with them again for the next two seasons,” said chief media and business officer for the NFL Brian Rolapp.
“Having over 100 million Amazon Prime members provides a massive platform to distribute ‘Thursday Night Football’ digitally, not only to our fans in the United States but also around the world,” he added.
“Our customers love to stream football — last year, we successfully debuted NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ on Prime Video in the U.S. and around the world,” said senior vice president of business development & entertainment at Amazon Jeff Blackburn. “We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with the NFL and offer Prime members another two seasons of ‘ThursdayNight Football.'”
The streaming giant partnered with the NFL for the first time in 2017.
