Thursday Night Football to move to Amazon Prime in new NFL agreement

The $110 billion deal will also feature more flex games and streaming simulcasts.

The National Football League announced a new agreement with its broadcast partners on Thursday that will run through the 2030 season. The agreement, which is worth $110 billion, will offer several new options for fans to stream games. 

The biggest change will be to Thursday Night Football, which will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. While games will also be available over the air in local markets, the agreement leans heavily into its partners' streaming options.

CBS (Paramount+), NBC (Peacock), FOX (Tubi) and ESPN (ESPN+) will continue to broadcast games over the air, but will now simulcast games over their respective streaming services.

According to WFAN's Craig Carton, ESPN+ could be an even bigger winner in the future as it looks to acquire the NFL's Sunday Ticket package from DirecTV. That report was not confirmed by the NFL, however, and there is no timetable for a decision.

The agreement also calls for more flex options to ensure marquee games are shown in primetime. While the NFL has been flexing Sunday Night Football games since 2007, they will now have the option to flex Monday Night Football games.

With the addition of ABC to its Super Bowl rotation in 2026 and 2030, the NFL now has several options to broadcast games (and increase revenue) throughout the next decade.
