3 Things We Learned From Amazon Prime’s TNF debut

Friday Night Football debuted on Amazon Prime on September 15th. Here are three things we learned in the live streaming service’s first game.

The first Thursday night football game of the 2022 season was played on September 15, with the Kansas City Chiefs taking over the Los Angeles Chargers. The game was not broadcast on national television as in past years. Instead, it was broadcast via Amazon Prime Video, after the company reached an exclusive agreement with the NFL.

As in the past, whenever a sports game debuts on a new streaming service, the performance is evaluated. From the audio side of things, to the visual side.

Here are three things we learned in Friday Night Football’s debut on Amazon Prime Video based on feedback from those on Twitter.

bad acoustics

One area of ​​concern raised was the acoustics of the stadium. As mentioned by Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, there are complaints about stadium sound not appearing in the broadcast.

As with any broadcast, they can adjust things over time. Considering it’s the first regular season game they’ve played live Thursday night, it’s a learning experience.

No more easily changing channels / avoiding commercials for the masses, causing a fuss

We mean, this was pretty obvious from the start.

If there’s one complaint among Friday Night Football fans, it’s that they can’t change channels to follow another game or show. This was a given, considering streaming games on a single streaming service/app.

So, fans realize that they have to sit in commercials, spend a lot of time switching from streaming service to streaming service, or streaming service to cable service provider.

Great picture quality

While there was some negative reaction to Thursday’s broadcast of Football on Amazon, one area that was positive was the image quality. When the feed is turned on at 100 percent, the image quality is great.

Of course, there will be some quality drops here and there, just like any streaming service. But the picture looks better than it does on network television cameras.
