Amazon will expand its deal with the NFL to stream a playoff game this season. Sources for The Wall Street Journal said conversations about the coverage took place Wednesday.
The deal is for one of the two additional wild card games that have been added to the NFL postseason schedule, airing on January 10. Amazon will stream the game on Prime Video and Twitch, using CBS’ feed of the game. CBS Sports will also stream the game on its own platforms.
NBC Sports has rights to the second new wild card game which will stream on Peacock and on its broadcast network.
This is the fourth year that Amazon has had streaming rights to some Thursday Night Football games. Earlier this year, Amazon extended the deal for those games for another three years in a deal worth upwards of $75 million.
“We know Prime members and the Twitch community around the world love the NFL, and we remain committed to giving them the best and most customizable streaming experience possible, with a broad selection of premium content available at their fingertips,” said Marie Donoghue, Vice President of Global Sports Video at Amazon when the extension was announced.
