Starting Next Week, Thursday Night Football Can Be Streamed in 4K For First Time
After finishing up the NFL Network exclusive part of the Thursday Night Football schedule, starting with this week’s Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay Packers game — TNF will be televised on Fox, NFL Network, Amazon Prime Video, and Twitch. But, this year, for the first time, TNF games through Week 15 with the New York Jets @ Baltimore Ravens will be available to stream in 4K using the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps.
“We continue to expand our UHD offerings, serving both a growing section of our audience and our distribution partners,” said Michael Davies, SVP Field & Technical Operations, FOX Sports. “The NFL offers our largest audiences, so being able to deliver games in UHD, while at the same time continuing to serve the entire FOX Sports audience with the best possible production value, emphasizes our goal of bringing fans as close as possible to the sports they love.”
It was previously announced that fuboTV would carry the games in 4K directly from their service, but now the games will also be available in the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps. That means that if you are a subscriber of PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV — you can watch the games live in 4K using your TV Everywhere credentials.
Both apps are available on all major streaming media players including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox, iOS, Android, and your computer. In order to stream in 4K though, you will need a Apple TV 4K or a Roku device that supports 4K streaming including the latest Roku TVs, Roku Premiere, Roku Streaming Stick+, and Roku Ultra. For the first time, the streaming telecasts will also feature Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
