Thursday Night Football

How to Live Stream NFL Thursday Night Football

NFL Thursday Night football has been around since 2006 giving pro football starved fans something to hold them over until Sunday. New in 2022, Amazon Prime Video will be the “exclusive” home of NFL Thursday Night Football. Let’s take a detailed look at all the streaming and over the air options for watching NFL Thursday Night Football.

The word “exclusively” is in quote for a couple reasons. First, the NFL Thursday Night TV “package” technically doesn’t include the NFL Kickoff Game and the Thanksgiving Night game, but since both take place on Thursday night, we’ll include the viewing and streaming options here anyway. For details on the NFL Kickoff Game or Thanksgiving night game, scroll to the end of the article. The typical Thursday Night games will also be available on traditional TV in the markets of the two teams playing that week. There’s also the NFL+ option, which we will discuss later.

NFL Thursday Night Football

The primary Thursday Night NFL schedule will be broadcast by Amazon Prime Video.

A free option for 2022 is This live streaming service, which is also owned by Amazon, typically offers a few live streaming options for NFL Thursday Night Football games that are also broadcast on Amazon. In previous seasons,  PrimeVideo has the regular TV feed, as well as some alternative feeds. Follow NFLonPrime on Twitter for updates.

Ways to Watch NFL Thursday Night Football

Amazon Prime Video

If you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can watch the games in your browser, via mobile with the Prime Video app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store, using a tv connected device such as the Fire TV Stick, Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, xBox, Playstation, and others, or a Smart TV with the Amazon Prime Video app.

If you are not already an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can sign up for a yearly subscription for $119 per year (which includes all sorts of other benefits) or $14.99 per month. Students with a valid .edu can signup for Amazon Prime Student for $7.49 / month, or $69 / year, both of which includes a 6 month free trial.

Mobile Only

 NFL+ app allows fans to watch every in-market NFL game on mobile or Tablet. Plans start at $4.99 per month and includes yearly options starting at $29.99 per year. In previous seasons fans could watch for free on the Yahoo Sports app, but that is no longer the case in 2022.

NFL Kickoff Game

The NFL Kickoff Game is a bit different than the rest of the Thursday Night NFL schedule. This traditional season opener for the NFL is technically part of the NFL Sunday Night Football package and is broadcast on NBC. It is on Thursday night, however, so I’m considering it as such. The same goes for the Thanksgiving night game which I cover at the end of the post. The 2022 edition of the NFL Kickoff game features the Buffalo Bills at the LA Rams on September 8th at 8pm EDT.

Ways to Watch NFL Kickoff Game Only

* You’ll want to double check each service to make sure they offer local channels in your area. Most of them do, but always check before subscribing.

Thanksgiving Night Game

Like the NFL Kickoff Game, the Thanksgiving night game doesn’t get lumped in with the standard NFL Thursday Night package, but again, since it is on Thursday night, we’ll include it. In 2022, the game will be broadcast by NBC and features New England at Minnesota.
