For the first time ever, Twitter will stream “Thursday Night Football” games, starting with Jets-Bills in Week 2.
If you want to stream the game, just go to tnf.twitter.com.
You can also use your mobile device or tablet with the NFL Network app or the CBS app. As always, your local CBS affiliate will carry the game on television. Kickoff is at 8:25 p.m. ET.
Twitter will stream 10 Thursday night regular-season games — the same 10 games that CBS and NBC will broadcast — and NFL Network will broadcast the other six games on the Thursday night schedule. In June 2015, the NFL partnered with Yahoo! Inc. to stream the 2015 Week 7 Bills-Jaguars game that took place in London.
In addition to live streaming, the NFL-Twitter partnership also includes in-game highlights from “Thursday Night Football” and pre-game Periscope broadcasts from players and teams.
“Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football,” commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement shortly after the partnership was announced. “There is a massive amount of NFL-related conversation happening on Twitter during our games and tapping into that audience, in addition to our viewers on broadcast and cable, will ensure Thursday Night Football is seen on an unprecedented number of platforms this season. This agreement also provides additional reach for those brands advertising with our broadcast partners.”
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey added: “This is about transforming the fan experience with football. People watch NFL games with Twitter today. Now they’ll be able to watch right on Twitter Thursday nights.”
