Amazon is reportedly close to a deal to carry more exclusive NFL games

When it paid a reported $50 million to nab them away from Twitter, Amazon initially protected the rights to stream Thursday Night Football in 2017. Last year, the business streamed its first “exclusive” game, a Saturday match between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers– though you could still view it if you didnt have Prime Video.

When whatever is said and done, Amazon could end up paying as much as $1 billion per year for those streaming rights. At the moment, its believed the companys agreement with the NFL sees it pay in between $75 million and $100 million to bring its existing football slate. Ought to the offer go through, it wont go into effect till after the 2022 season when Foxs current arrangement with the NFL expires.

Amazon and the National Football League are close to signing an offer that could see Prime Video bring even more video games than it currently does, according to The Wall Street Journal. If the offer goes through, Amazon will reportedly have exclusive rights to a “considerable” variety of Thursday night games. The agreement will make it so that those matches wont be readily available on TV exterior of the regional markets of the two groups included in the video game.
