Presented by Bud Light
With the release of the 2017 NFL regular season schedule, NFL Network announced it will televise 18 games over the course of the upcoming season, featuring nine Divisional matchups and 11 playoff teams from 2016.
As part of the 18-game schedule, 13 regular season Thursday Night Football games will be televised nationally by NFL Network, either exclusively or as a simulcast of the respective CBS or NBC broadcast.
Presented by Bud Light, the slate of 13 regular season Thursday Night Football games kicks off when the Houston Texans visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, September 14 exclusively on NFL Network. All Thursday Night Football games will again kickoff at 8:25 PM ET.
Both CBS and NBC will produce Thursday Night Football with their lead broadcasters and production teams, and both will contribute to the production of Thursday Night Football exclusively on NFL Network.
Along with the simulcast on NFL Network, Amazon's Prime Video will stream 11 games, including 10 Thursday Night Football games broadcast by CBS and NBC, as well as a Christmas Day game broadcast by NBC, to the tens of millions of Amazon Prime members worldwide, once again securing the league's "Tri-Cast" model of broadcast (NBC/CBS), cable (NFL Network), and digital (Amazon Prime Video) distribution.
In addition to the 13 regular season Thursday Night Football games, NFL Network will televise a Week 8 International Series matchup from London, a Week 15 Saturday double header, and two Week 16 games.
The entire 18-game NFL Network schedule will also be streamed live on the NFL Mobile from Verizon app (NFL.com/mobile), the NFL app on Xbox One and Windows 10, and through Watch NFL Network on tablets, PCs and various connected TV devices (NFL.com/watch), with participating television providers.
