Worried about how to watch Thursday Night Football this season? The NFL kicks off every week of action with its Thursday Night Football (TNF) games. For 16 weeks, beginning in week two, some of the league’s best teams will face off in prime time. But, for the second consecutive year, TNF will not be available on cable or satellite TV. The TNF package is only available through the Amazon Prime Video stream.
With the exception of Thanksgiving, every TNF game will begin at 8:15 p.m. ET. During Thanksgiving week, the TNF game will be played on Friday.

Watch Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video
An Amazon Prime membership costs $14.99 per month or $139 annually. The plan includes Amazon Prime Video for free, along with free one-day or two-day shipping on many products, access to Amazon’s music and book libraries, and exclusive discounts only available to Prime members. So if you’re looking for one of the best deals complete with entertainment, shopping, and convenience, an Amazon Prime membership is a no-brainer.
If you don’t shop on Amazon, but still want the service’s video content, you can sign up for a subscription to Amazon Prime Video for $8.99 per month. This will give you access to the complete Prime Video library with thousands of popular movies, TV shows, and Amazon Originals like “Citadel”,“Reacher”, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”, “The Rings of Power” or “The Boys.” With Prime Video, you can create up to six user profiles, stream on up to three devices simultaneously, and can try out the service with a 30-day free trial.
There is a catch, though. While NFL fans can watch Thursday Night Football games live, Amazon Prime Video does not have a robust live sport lineup at least, not without paying for additional subscriptions. As a result, sports fans may want to purchase additional networks on Prime Video in areas where they are available. Among these are NBA League Pass, MLB TV, or Paramount Plus.
