Amazon Prime begins its second season of broadcasting the NFL Thursday Night Football games, starting with the Week 4 clash between the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Rams. Here’s how to stream the game live on Amazon Prime for free in the UK.
The Amazon Prime deal with the NFL is once again good news for gridiron fans in the UK, because the games are free to stream on Prime Video for those with a Prime subscription.
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime subscription, you’re able to trial the service freely for 30-days (£7.99 a month thereafter). That will get you four weeks of NFL games for free with some intriguing features coming up.
For Prime subscribers it’s an opportunity to watch some NFL action without paying for Sky Sports, either through a subscription or the purchase of a Now TV pass.
