After Twitter won the fight of streaming Thursday night NFL games last year, Amazon, Facebook and YouTube are all in the race of bidding for these rights this year. Last season twitter paid $10 million to secure the rights, was able to sell the ad inventory made available during the streams.
CBS Corp. and NBCUniversal are paying a sum of $450 million collectively to broadcast the same 10 games. Though Twitter seems to be taking away the right this year too as the NFL praised Twitter for having an already-in-place community discussing the games as they happen.
