Amazon, not Twitter, will livestream Thursday Night Football. It’s a one-year deal worth reportedly $50 million. 

Amazon will livestream 10 games this season that will be carried by CBS and NBC. The online store beat out Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, according to ESPN, for the rights.

Twitter reportedly paid $10 million for the same service last year.

The 10 games will be part of its Amazon Prime video service. This will thus limit the viewers to only Amazon Prime subscribers.

CBS and NBC will air five Thursday Night Football games apiece. Both of these networks have an option to stream their games online, as well. 

However, if you are a Verizon Wireless subscriber and have the NFL Mobile app, you will be able to watch the games for free.

For those that do not have Verizon Wireless, an individual can purchase Amazon Prime for $99, or $10.99 per month.
