I love the fact that Amazon is presenting these games. As a cord cutter and long time Prime subscriber, nothing better. However, implementation has issues. I keep getting the 1060 errors. These occur mostly during the games, not in the pre-game parts. I need to retry/stop and reload. Sometimes I need to restart my TV itself. Not much fun watching games this way. Also, the resolution pretty bad during first 15 seconds or so. It usually gets clear after that. However, I keep getting the resolution issues during the game. My net speed is >80 mbps and I connect through ethernet cable, so that should not be a problem.
So good initiative Amazon, but you need to fix these issues asap.
Glitchy but mostly okay. They do not show all the Thursday night games! This came as a surprise to me when I was expecting the week 9 game (11/2/17) and they do not carry it. They unfortunately didn't post that they will only carry some games anywhere... Otherwise I would be someplace else watching it .. not home bitching about it.
I am literally one step above fully cutting cable from my household. I only get local & qvc channels. Even if I had the full cable package, my cable provider does not even offer nfl network. So, I really enjoy having the option to stream tnf games. I would go completely cable free if I could stream all nfl games (without paying an outrageous amount of money to buy nfl game pass of course). However, I am slightly disappointed that some games were not available. Also, there are times that the picture quality is inconsistent at times.
I have cable and amazon prime, so I have options. Reasons for why I don't watch TNF on Amazon: 1. No pause and rewind (thank you DVR). I want to be able to pause while I do other things and rewind to watch that TD celebration, scuffle, awesome pass, or whatever. 2. Occasional lag. I just can't stand it; this never happens when I'm watching on cable.
Amazon has a good thing going here. I see alot of reviews affected by technical issues, keep in mind that this is a first attempt and there are bound to be some. My experience overall is that Amazon seriously outperforms live streaming competitors such as Sling, Fubo, and Watch Espn with viewing quality on a 4G connection. If they will continue to build on it and get more access and rights as Verizon has to games, NFL followers would really have it going on. The downside: Not enough games covered. At the least, it would have been nice for them to have the entire slate of Thursday night games instead of a partial offering.
