Welcome to 2016, where you can watch high-quality live streams of NFL games on Twitter.
Twitter reached an agreement with the NFL in April to live stream 10 games this season, the first of which takes place Thursday night with the New York Jets visiting the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field.
In case you’re wary of being able to find the actual live stream, we’ve set up this handy guide to help you.
Where is the stream?
Twitter just launched new apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Xbox One this week, meaning if you have those devices, you can download the app on them and live stream the game on your TVs.
Of course, you also can stream the games on the Twitter app on your mobile device or tablet, and on good ol’-fashioned Twitter.com.
In the app, the stream will be found in the “Moments” tab. On the full website, Twitter will have a type of dual-screen layout going on so you can watch the game and follow curated content about the game (and, of course, tweet yourself) and never have to leave that one window. Convenient, right?
Here’s what the page looks like on Twitter.com. You can get there by clicking here.
You don’t need a Twitter account to access this page, but if you do have one, a box will appear above the right column to let you tweet without clicking elsewhere.
On the app, when we clicked into the Moments tab, the featured stream was “TODAY,” but we only needed to swipe over two spots to the right to find the “NFL” stream, which had a “tune in” option right on top. See what it looks like here. We’re guessing that might be the featured stream come kickoff.
The stream will be the CBS TV broadcast, and it will be available to every country in the world except Canada. Kickoff is set for 8:25 p.m. ET.
