Amazon to take over "Thursday Night Football" package in '22

Amazon Prime Video will become the exclusive home of the NFL's “Thursday Night Football” package a year earlier than originally anticipated.

Amazon and the league announced Monday that Prime Video will take over the entire package in 2022, which will make it an 11-season deal through 2032.

It was originally supposed to begin in 2023 when the league's new media rights deals kick in. This is the first time a streaming service has had the full rights to an NFL package. “This expedited deal is an immediate differentiator for us as a service, as it gives Prime members exclusive access to the most popular sport in the United States,” Marie Donoghue, Amazon’s vice president of global sports video, said in a statement.
