On Thursday, September 28, 2017, the NFL made history as it brought fans the first-ever live stream of a football game on Amazon Prime. As the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers squared off in Lambeau Field an average of 372,000 people watched on Amazon’s sites and apps worldwide. The stream accompanied simultaneous broadcasts on CBS and NFL Network (NFLN) – a tri-cast that featured graphics built and enhanced by RCS.
Four more Thursday Night Football tai-casts (CBS/NFLN/Amazon Prime) featuring these graphics are scheduled for the season.
