Amazon Prime Video announced this week the launch of a new NFL pre-game show on Thursdays, hosted by Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer, two female sports journalists.
In a press release issued earlier this week, Amazon Prime Video said the two will provide commentary and analysis for its live streaming coverage of Thursday Night Football games on Prime Video, kicking off on Thursday (Sept. 27).
“NFL fans will hear history made this season – bringing two female announcers together to call an entire NFL game has never been done before,” said Greg Hart, vice president of Prime Video in the press release. “Our customers around the world love to stream football – we are thrilled to have Andrea and Hannah bring their extensive knowledge of the game to fans on Prime Video.”
According to Amazon Prime Video, it is providing multiple audio options so consumers can choose their viewing experience. For instance, Prime Video customers can choose between the Fox broadcast with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, and three separate Prime Video exclusive audio streams: Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm, Spanish-language announcers and a U.K. English language broadcast team.
Kremer, who was recently honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, said she is excited to team up with Storm. “Teaming up with Hannah and Amazon for this is truly special,” said Kremer. “Hannah is a brilliant journalist and she has been a friend for many years. With decades of experience as storytellers, we will be bringing a different voice and viewpoint to covering the game of football.” Storm was equal in her praise of Kremer, saying she makes the perfect partner. "Together, we’re looking forward to offering a new option for Prime members on Thursday nights, and I'm excited to get to work,” she said.
Prime members will be able to stream all 11 games via the Prime Video app for TVs and connected devices, including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at amazon.com/video/tnf, noted the company in the press release.
