How one can watch the NFL on Amazon Prime

Your Thursday night TV viewing experience is about to change. Amazon Prime — the streaming services arm of Jeff Bezos’ retail giant — begins streaming NFL games Thursday night with today’s edition of the Chargers chiefs in Kansas City and will continue to do so for the next four months.

Although fans in local markets can watch TV wirelessly – in today’s case Los Angeles and Kansas City – out-of-market fans will need an Amazon Prime Video subscription ($8.99 per month alone and included in the overall price of Amazon Prime contain). from $14.99 per month or $139 for the year) and a streaming device configured to watch games on their TV will also be available through the Prime Video app on smartphones and tablets .

More than 18 months ago, the NFL announced that Amazon would be the exclusive provider of most Thursday night games in a massive $13 billion deal that runs through 2033. At a cost of about $1 billion per year, that means Amazon is paying about $67 million per game in rights fees.

Last but not least, NFL fans can take advantage of one of Amazon’s 30-day free Prime trials. That’ll get you through Washington-Chicago in mid-October, and if you’re ready to watch that, you’re ready to watch everything.
