The Los Angeles Chargers’ matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs will be the first time that a regular-season National Football League (NFL), game has been broadcast on cable or traditional television in America.
A multi-year agreement between Amazon and the NFL allows Thursday Night Football games to be streamed exclusively on Amazon’s streaming platforms. This means that most Americans will view the game via Prime Video, Amazon’s subscription service.
However, that’s not all. Thursday Night Football will be legal streamed on YouTube. Each Thursday game will also be streamed for free on Amazon’s Twitch live gaming platform as part of the multi-year agreement between the tech company and the NFL.
To stream Thursday Night Football on Twitch you don’t need an account. Simply log in to your Prime Video account and hit play.
Twitch will stream Thursday Night Football games for free through its various apps on different streaming platforms including Apple and Android phones, tablets and consoles, XBox and PlayStation gaming consoles, and on Apple TV and Android TV (Google TV), and Amazon Fire TV devices. For LG smart TV users, there is a native Twitch application.
Twitch isn’t available on Roku. However, Roku users who have an Apple phone/tablet can cast Twitch feeds via Airplay on Roku supported devices.
