Anyone still holding out from Amazon Prime because they can watch football ever Thursday night on FOX might want to plan on change sooner rather than later.
Amazon Prime Video will soon be the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football. The NFL says that will start in the 2022 season, which is a year earlier than expected. Due to that, the upcoming season will mark the final one that the featured Thursday night game will be on FOX.
Importantly, fans of the teams playing on Thursday night will be able to watch the game on over-the-air television. Still, the move marks a big step forward for the league’s streaming capabilities and an acknowledgement of the changing viewership habits of fans.
