For a initial time ever, you’ll be means to watch a diversion live on Amazon.
Amazon paid $50 million earlier this year to tide 10 “Thursday Night Football” games, and this is a initial of a bunch. (Amazon also cumulative an 11th diversion on Christmas Day as partial of a apart deal, and we might remember that Twitter paid $10 million to tide 10 “Thursday Night Football” games final year.)
Unlike with Twitter, not everybody gets to watch Amazon’s stream. Amazon will yield a diversion — that will be a same CBS telecast you’ll see on TV for giveaway — exclusively for Prime members. Which means you’ll need to tell Amazon that you’re a Prime subscriber in sequence to watch.
Once you’ve finished that, you’ll be means to watch a diversion from any Amazon device we own, including Fire TV, a Fire inscription and a Echo Show. It will also work on any Amazon Prime video app for any console or set-top box, including apps for iPhone and Android devices. You’ll also be means to watch during Amazon.com, though we won’t be means to watch on Amazon-owned Twitch.
If we have voice activation set adult for your device, we can simply ask Alexa to uncover we a diversion and it should cocktail up.
You also don’t need to be in a United States to watch; Amazon skeleton to tide a diversion globally. Amazon will tide a CBS pre-game show, too, that means we should also be means to watch any National Anthem drama unfold.
Amazon will also offer something new: A interpretation choice for viewers who don’t pronounce English or know American football. As Amazon explained it in an email to Recode: “Amazon is producing live audio marks for non-English vocalization viewers … [including] Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and even an English denunciation tide that is focused on a educational aspects of a diversion for those who aren’t informed with football jargon.”
Weird, and maybe associated to Amazon’s interpretation push: It will furnish a possess pre-game show, featuring Australian luminary cook Curtis Stone and former NFL using behind Tiki Barber.
