Amazon Teaming up with Dude Perfect for Football Streams
Updated · Aug 02, 2022
Beginning this season, Amazon Prime Video will become the new home to the NFL’s Thursday Night Football.
Sports Streaming Rising
Sports broadcasting is becoming increasingly important to streaming services, and more of them are looking for ways to include it in their offerings.
Reportedly, Amazon and Apple are among the bidders for the lucrative NFL Sunday Ticket package.
The NFL recently announced that it is launching its own streaming service. It will include live local and primetime games for mobile users and live out-of-market preseason games on all devices.
New Alternatives Coming
Starting with the 2022 season, the streaming giant will also offer alternative streams for those who do not want to watch the main show.
One of the options will include the widely popular YouTube channel Dude Perfect. The team has over 58 million subscribers and has become famous for doing outlandish stunts and trick shot videos. Amazon’s goal is to add that same energy to its TNF broadcasts.
“Watch the guys predict what happens in the next play and welcome an entertaining parade of dunk tanks, pudding cannons, special guests, and the occasional world record attempt,” the company said in a press release.
Amazon still has not announced which TNF games will include the Dude Perfect members.
The streaming service is preparing even more alternative options, hoping to find something for many of its 200 million users worldwide. There will be “multiple alternate stream offerings,” according to the press release.
