An Amazon Prime membership goes a long way. Not only does a Prime membership give sports fans access to 2-day shipping, and free same-day shipping in select cities, to a wide array of streaming devices on the market, but they’ll also get access to Prime Video. Maximize Prime Video by adding subscriptions to sports channels like CBS All-Access, PGA Tour Live, NBA League Pass, and much more. Prime Video subscribers gain access to live NFL Thursday Night Football games and the Emmy Award-winning docuseries All or Nothing. With 2 pricing options, this is the perfect gift for the rest of the NFL season.
A Sling TV Gift Card
Sling TV is one of the best live TV streaming services on the market because it has flexible plans that include a wide range of sports channels. Fans of the NFL, MLB, MLS, NBA, NHL, and more will be able to record the action as Sling includes DVR as well. With the NBA season tip-off expected for December 22, sports fans can catch national games on Sling as packages include NBA TV, TNT, and ESPN.
30 Days of MLB.TV

CBS All-Access gives subscribers access to over 1,000 hours of content from America’s most-watched network, 24/7 live TV, and live sports including NFL on CBS. Starting at $5.99/mo., a $25 gift card is nearly 4 full months of content, that’s nearly the length of the NFL regular season.
