The NFL said Monday that Thursday Night Football will move to a digital-only format with Amazon Prime Video in 2022, a year earlier than originally announced, Kevin Seifert of ESPN reports.

As a result, 2021 will mark the final season of the Thursday night package on FOX.

The NFL's quicker-than-expected shift to a larger streaming package reflects trends accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, among other factors. It is part of a larger set of broadcast deals the NFL reached in March that will also expand digital distribution for all of its current broadcast partners, including FOX, CBS, NBC and ABC/ESPN.

Amazon first partnered with the NFL in 2017 as part of tri-broadcast distribution on Thursday nights.
