Amazon has confirmed that the first-ever NFL Black Friday game will be available to stream on Prime Video, and completely for free. Amazon has been making a big push into sports of late, with the streaming of Thursday Night Football one of the most recent examples.


Shortly after Prime Video started showing Thursday Night Football, details about a first-ever Black Friday game started to come through. Confirmation that Amazon and the NFL had agreed to partner over a game came in October, confirming that the matchup would take place Friday, Nov. 24, 2023 with an expected kick off of 3 p.m. ET.

While these details were confirmed back in October, it remained unclear how much it would cost to watch the game or what would be required.


Now, however, Amazon has confirmed that it will cost nothing to watch 2023’s Black Friday game. Even though the game will be shown on Prime Video, Amazon says it will be available to stream completely for free. That’s free for Prime members and free for non-Prime members.

While the teams have yet to be confirmed, Amazon has announced that the pregame show will be hosted by Charissa Thompson alongside Tony Gonzalez, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Richard Sherman, Andrew Whitworth, Taylor Rooks, and Michael Smith. In addition, Al Michaels, Kirk Herbstreit, and Kaylee Hartung will cover the on-field action once game coverage begins.

Thanksgiving football has always been a big deal in the US, and the NFL and Amazon will be hoping that the first Black Friday game will prove just as popular. Something that seems all the more likely now that it is confirmed everyone, including those without a Prime membership, will be able to watch the Black Friday 2023 game live and for free through Prime Video.
