On Monday, the NFL announced that Amazon Prime Video will be the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football beginning next year with the 2022 season. The original agreement was to start distributing TNF with the 2023 season but fans can now expect it one year sooner.
This move means that Thursday Night Football on FOX will have it’s last share of games during the upcoming 2021 season.
This good news for all of you football fans who already roll with Amazon Prime and don’t want to have to deal with any other streaming services when trying to catch the Thursday night primetime games. I know that was certainly a pain for me in recent years, so I’m pretty content with this development.
And now for today’s links.
