Where can I watch Thursday Night Football on TV tonight?

Watch the Detroits Lions and Green Bay Packers Thursday Night Football game on Amazon Prime Video. You can stream TNF without Prime Video on your smartphone or tablet with NFL+. And if you live in or near Detroit or Milwaukee, you can watch the game on FOX.

You will need an Amazon Prime Video account to watch Thursday Night Football for the rest of the 2023 NFL season (and until the 2033 season).

Let’s kick off with the prices, Amazon and NFL’s deal, and the Thursday Night Football games you won’t want to miss.

Find reliable internet service providers in your area to avoid lag and buffering during your NFL game-watching.

Amazon Prime Video prices and plans

Prime Video is Amazon’s streaming service that owns the rights to TNF since 2022—and it’s here to stay as they signed an 11-year deal.

Amazon will be paying $1 billion to the NFL to stream the primetime games from the 2022 season until the 2033 season.

You can order Amazon Video for $9 per month, but you might upgrade to the Amazon Prime membership for $6 more to receive free speedy Prime shipping.

Let’s say it’s Wednesday afternoon, and you have friends coming over for the Giants vs. 49ers game tomorrow. You’re at work and realize you need more beer glasses (at an unbeatable price). Well, Amazon Prime is to the rescue.

How much is Amazon Prime Video for TNF?
Amazon Prime Monthly Subscription (With Prime Video)$8.99/mo.*
Amazon Prime Annual Subscription (With Prime Video)$139/yr.*
* Requires Amazon Prime subscription. Compatible device and internet connection required. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

Why should I get an Amazon Prime membership?

When you order the Prime Video subscription, not only do you have access to Thursday Night Football, but you also get access to a huge on-demand library with Originals, like John Ryan and The Terminal List.

But here is why the Amazon Prime membership is worth it for $15 per month:

  • Prime Video + TNF
  • Quick Prime shipping (mostly same-day or next-day delivery)
  • Free Kindle book each month
  • Amazon Music Unlimited
  • Prime Wardrobe

If you’re like me and want to stream every Thursday Night Football game and get quick shipping on anything and everything throughout the year, save $40 with the annual subscription.

Thursday Night Football schedule 2023

If you’re anticipating the first official game of the season like it’s Christmas Day or excited to see how many points Travis Kelce racks up for your fantasy football team, tune in to NBC.

Some tidbits to note for TNF this season:

Bears fans, you can’t skip out on a Prime Video subscription this year, as Justin Fields and team have three TNF games.

The Lions and Packers go head-to-head in two Thursday games—one in Week 4 on Prime Video and a Thanksgiving Day game on FOX (more on that below).

“Thursday Night Football” during Thanksgiving week is technically on Black Friday. Scroll past the table below to find out where to watch the three Thanksgiving Day games.

Canadians (or anyone outside of the U.S.) could likely watch TNF games on Amazon Prime with a VPN, a service that keeps your location and personal information private.

Amazon signed an 11-year deal for the exclusive rights to Thursday Night Football for $1 billion per year. TNF will air only on Prime Video from 2022 to 2033.

Week 1 TNF is on NBC. Afterward, TNF will air only on Amazon Prime Video. Subscribe for $9–$15 per month for the NFL season.

You can watch Week 1 of TNF on your local NBC channel. For Weeks 2–18, you’ll need a Prime Video subscription to stream the TNF games. If you already have an Amazon Prime subscription, then you essentially get to watch it for free because Prime Video is included!
