Amazon on Tuesday signed a $50 million, one-year deal to acquire the streaming rights for NFL – Thursday Night Football. The games will be available exclusively to Amazon Prime subscribers. Amazon beat out it’s rival bidders Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to acquire the streaming rights.
Twitter paid $10 million last season to provide live streaming services for the same number of games. The NFL is expected to announce its full schedule for the 2017 season, including Thursday night games, later in April before the draft.
