TNF deal with Amazon Prime extends through 2022

     The NFL & Amazon Prime Video announced a deal today for an extension of its deal with Amazon to stream 11 Thursday night games per season. The arrangement now includes a late-season Saturday game that will be streamed exclusively by Amazon.

β€œIn keeping with the NFL’s long-standing commitment to make its games available on free, over-the-air television, the game will also be televised in the participating teams’ home markets,” the league said in the statement announcing the deal.

Per Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, "The league understands the importance of keeping certain games free. Whether to maximize the audience for a prime-time game or to avoid the broadcast antirust exemption when fans have no way of watching their local teams play without paying for it, the league will keep putting games on free on the Big-Three networks." Either way, the free games are gonna be crappy games that nobody would pay for anyway.

Florio: "The new Amazon deal lasts through 2022, which puts the Thursday night streaming rights in play for the next wave of broadcast-rights negotiations. With 17 regular-season games coming in 2021, games available exclusively on streaming platforms could become a regular facet of the weekly NFL schedule."
