Thursday Night Football looks a little different as the 2022 NFL schedule gets underway. Starting this season, Amazon Prime is the exclusive home of the league's Thursday night package.
Originally set to start in the 2023 NFL season, Amazon and the NFL agreed to start the new arrangement this fall instead.
This marks the first time that the NFL will play games locked behind a subscription service. Amazon has carried games before, but always in tandem with a live broadcast on a network TV channel.
It's a big change for the NFL and its fans, who will have to subscribe to Amazon Prime in order to see the league's Thursday Night Football games.
To watch Thursday Night Football games, you will need an Amazon Prime account and subscription. From there, you can select the game on the Prime landing page when it's being played live.
Thursday Night Football will continue to kick off at 8:20 p.m. Eastern time, though teams and times are subject to change.
First, log into your Amazon account and go to the Amazon Prime Video section. If you're not a member, you will have to join.
Prime offers two forms of membership: $14.99 per month or $139 per year. Prime Video membership alone is $8.99 per month.
Once you access the Prime Video section, there will be a prompt at the top of the page to view the live Thursday Night Football broadcast.
This year, the NFL scored a pair of high-profile names to call its Thursday games. Al Michaels comes over from NBC, where he was working Sunday Night Football, to do play-by-play, and Kirk Herbstreit will provide color analysis alongside.
Herbstreit will also be providing college football commentary for ESPN this season.
