Thanksgiving isn’t just about the turkey or time with family. It’s about Thanksgiving football. Can you watch on Amazon Prime Video?
We are all looking forward to Thursday Night Football. All games are broadcast on FOX, but if you cut the cord and have Amazon Prime, you can watch all games on Amazon Prime Video. Even if you haven’t cut the cord, watching Amazon Prime Video is definitely something to consider.
So it’s Thursday night. You know there’s a Thanksgiving football game tonight. It’s all about the Buffalo Bills against the New Orleans Saints. It will be the first time that the two teams will face each other on Thanksgiving Day.
Where can you watch it?
Is Thanksgiving Football 2021 on Amazon Prime Video?
It’s Thursday, so it should mean the game is on Amazon Prime Video, right? This is where there is a bit of bad news.
Although it is Thursday, the football game is actually classified as a Sunday night football special. That means it won’t be on Amazon Prime Video.
Where can you watch it? The game airs on NBC. You can watch it on the channel or on NBC.com. You can also stream it live on Peacock this year.
Live coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET. However, that does not mean that the game will start immediately. As usual with Thursday night football games, kick-off starts at 8:20 PM ET and lasts all night.
There are games all day long. The first airs at 12:30 p.m. ET on FOX featuring the Chicago Bears at the Detroit Lions. The second airs at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS featuring the LAs Vegas Riders with the Dallas Cowboys. Neither of these games is on Amazon Prime Video either.
Will this change in the future? There is always a chance, but the broadcasting networks love their access to football. These can be some of the best options for live reviews, meaning the networks make money from advertising.
