Amazon.com Inc. is set to live stream 10 National Football League Thursday night games this season on its video subscription service, Bloomberg News reported April 5, citing a company spokesman.
The company is said to have paid $50 million to NFL for a year's streaming rights. The games will continue to be broadcast by CBS Corp.'s CBS (US), Comcast Corp.'s NBC (US) and the NFL Network (US).
A report in March indicated that Facebook Inc., Amazon.com, Twitter Inc. and Google Inc.'s YouTube were vying for rights to stream the "Thursday Night Football" games. Twitter held the streaming rights for the NFL Thursday night games in the previous season.
