All Thursday Night Football (TNF) games in 2023 are available to watch on Prime Video. Any NFL fans wanting to watch football any Thursday during the 2023 NFL season will want to make sure they have access to Prime Video, and a compatible device to watch the live games on.

Amazon’s Prime Video is a little different to many other streaming services, as it is more of a one-stop shop for everything video. While it’s possible to buy and rent videos in the Prime Video app, there’s no additional cost involved with Thursday Night Football. As long you have access to Prime Video, TNF is free.

In fact, any homes that already have an Amazon Prime membership will find that they are already a Prime Video subscriber. Even though it is possible to sign up for a standalone subscription, Prime Video is free to anyone with a Prime membership.
