How to Watch NFL on Amazon Prime

Your Thursday Night Football viewing experience is about to change. Amazon Prime — the streaming service arm of Jeff Bezos’ retail behemoth — begins streaming Thursday night NFL games with tonight’s Chargers-Chiefs tilt in Kansas City and will continue for the next four months.

While fans in local markets will be able to watch the broadcast on TV — including Los Angeles and Kansas City tonight — fans outside the market will need an Amazon Prime Video subscription ($8.99 per month and included in the overall Amazon Prime price of $14.99 per month or $139 per year) and built-in streaming to watch their TV games. The device is also available through the Prime Video app on smartphones and tablets.

18 months ago, Amazon announced on Thursday night that Amazon would be the exclusive carrier of games, a $13 billion game through 2033. At a cost of about $1 billion a year, that means Amazon pays about $67. million per game in rights fees.

If nothing else, NFL fans can use one of Amazon’s free 30-day Prime trials. It takes you through Washington-Chicago in mid-October, and if you’re willing to see that, you’re willing to see anything.
