Amazon is cornering the football streaming market for the big NFL game on the day after Christmas. Prime Video and Amazon’s gaming-centered Twitch will be exclusive streamers for the San Francisco 49ers vs Arizona Cardinals game on Dec. 26.
The triple-header also features the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions at 1 PM ET and the Miami Dolphins vs the Las Vegas Raiders at 8:15 PM ET, both of which the NFL Network has exclusive rights to. Sandwiched in between, the 49ers will take on the Cardinals at 4:30 PM in a game that will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.
This news comes after Amazon extended its streaming agreement with the NFL earlier this year. 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.
“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.
