Amazon will be the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football starting in 2022. The stream will feature a new pregame, halftime, and postgame shows as well as integrate X-Ray and stats. The stream has been quite successful for the streamer, which offers the games via Amazon Prime Video. By placing the games on the Amazon Prime app, it allowed users from multiple streaming platforms and smart TV’s to access the games.
This year will mark the first time Amazon will have its own pre and post-game shows instead of using a simulcast with a TV provider like the NFL Network. Can Amazon use the Thursday slot the way ABC used Monday Night Football successfully? It will likely depend on the matchups. Thursday Night football often has struggled to highlight the top teams in the NFL but considering how quickly a team can turn the tide on season expectations Thursday night can turn into a showcase of young stars and the home of the best turnaround stories in football.
