No, your cable company is not deceiving you. Thursday Night Football is not on television as we have become accustomed to since the beginnging of time.
The Chiefs-Chargers rivalry has become one of the best in all of football and some folks find themselves in a precarious position. Outside of local networks, tonight’s Chiefs-Chargers game will only be available via the Amazon Prime Video streaming service.
Fans likely forgot about the switch, because many of them took ot Twitter and showed how pissed off they were about it.
It should be noted that Amazon Prime Video and DirecTV struck a multiyear agreement that allows business owners to stream “Thursday Night Football” for their patrons.
Amazon’s “TNF” broadcasts, including pregame, halftime and postgame coverage, will be available to more than 300,000 sports bars, restaurants, retail stores, hotel lounges, casinos and sports books, among other venues across the U.S., regardless of if it is a national chain or local.
The NFL’s 11-year media rights agreement with Amazon Prime Video makes the streaming service the first streamer to hold exclusive rights to a package of NFL games.
Welcome to the future.
