FOOTBALL welcomed a new era Thursday night as the streaming revolution was underway.
Amazon Prime Video officially became the new host of TNF with an exciting duel in Kansas City.
Prime Video cameras were there to see the Chiefs narrowly defeat the Los Angeles Chargers.
But some fans were less than impressed with her coverage.
Amazon is exclusively streaming 13 Thursday Night Football live this weekend.
American football fans were no longer able to follow the action on Fox, NBC or CBS.
And that meant tuning into Amazon’s streaming service.
TV viewers took to social media to complain about the quality of the stream they were watching.
One said: “What a disaster this is Amazon Prime so far.
“The Chargers vs. Chiefs video quality is poor, the announcers are fine, but what’s the point if you can’t watch it without glitches.”
Another added: “Is someone else’s Prime Video stream a little buggy for TNF on Prime or is it just me?”
And another tweet read: “This Prime Video stream for TNF is HORRIBLE. Buffering, Spinny Circle. Trash.”
Amazon has brought in the likes of Richard Sherman and Matt Fitzpatrick for its TNF coverage.
Al Michael joined Kirk Herbstreit in the commentary booth while Charissa Thompson presented.
Amazon will be back with Steelers vs Browns in week two – and hopefully no fans are complaining.
