Amazon Prime NFL is offered for any Amazon Prime member. Finally you all Amazon Prime users can watch NFL Thursday Football directly via Amazon Prime Video platform.
For the first time in decades, ratings are down. With a presidential election and a surplus of sports, viewership has been split all over several networks. However, that hasn’t stopped Amazon Prime from trying to deliver a platform for viewership. Despite the ratings being record lows for the NFL season, Amazon Prime is trying to make its platform the bona fide spot for Thursday Night Football.
What Is Amazon Prime NFL?
For starters, Amazon Prime NFL is an add-on feature for those that have an Amazon Prime account. Starting on Thursday, October 8th, Amazon Prime Thursday Night Football became a weekly tradition. Amazon Prime offered an option to re-watch the top plays from the game in real-time instead of waiting for the broadcast to review the footage. Also, NFL Amazon Prime offers the “X-ray functionality” feature, which offers stats specific to the plays such as running speeds, time to throw, relevant milestones, and trivia.
The overwhelming appeal to using Amazon Prime NFL is that you can watch live Thursday Night Football games. With the subscription of an Amazon Prime account, you can access both the live feed and the X-Ray functionality option. You can access all of this with your Android or iOS device, or if you own a Fire Stick/Fire TV.
Along with live streams, Amazon Prime NFL members will have access to an assortment of other appealing features. Fans have the option to choose between a different group of announcers. This year, Amazon Prime NFL members can watch the “Scout’s Feed,” which shows off former NFL scouts, and current podcasters, Bucky Books, Daniel Jeremiah, and Joy Taylor.
Prime Video will also allow fans to watch original content that has been in collaboration with NFL Films, but these will be exclusively on Twitch. These shows feature former NFL players, such as The NFL Comment Box, hosted by Kyle Long and Andrew Hawkins, and The NFL Machine, also hosted by Long and Chad Hawkins.
Amazon Prime NFL users will have access to all of this content in their native language as well. For Prime members in the United States and Mexico, fans will have access to the FOx Deportes Spanish language broadcast option.
