Meow words if it goes to Directv or not. I hope you have paramount +
The Amazon thing is pants-on-head stupid. Bars and other establishments don't have streaming/Amazon Prime services. Getting together with buddies to watch the game is half the fun, not sitting by yourself at your computer watching it at your desk.
Most TVs are smart TVs and have Amazon loaded
Um - you can watch prime on any tv made in the last 10 years. All it takes is a $25 stick.
You sound like a dinosaur.
Okay, smart TV or whatever (which yes, I own and know how to operate), still can't watch it at a bar with other people, and Amazon Prime is $119 a year. Not everyone is a subscriber, and now having to start to purchase the NFL piecemeal is going to get really annoying really fast.
I hate streaming games. I'd much rather watch on Network.
Cardinals games are free to watch and broadcasted at the bars. I'm sure if bars are worried about patronage, they can purchase amazon prime.
Your right not everyone is a subscriber most people I know share their account with at least 2 or 3 other people.
You should get used to it, cable tv is nearly dead. Everything will be streaming - probably within 5 years or so.
I don't live in AZ, and even if I did, I'd like to watch more than the Cardinals anyways.
Most bars don't have receivers set up for online streaming, having worked in the industry. They have DirectTV setups that they pay a premium for all NFL games to. Most of these places aren't even set up to run an HDMI cord to the back of a TV to broadcast off of someone's laptop that has the service.
I don't mind Amazon being an alternative to NFL Network, but there should always be some form of actual TV broadcast for all NFL games.
I guarantee you that television will not be dead within 5 years or so. I work in marketing and know how the market is shifting, but it's going to be at least 20+ years until TV is dead. Streaming hasn't even overtaken it in saturation, and even when streaming does, TV will still live on for quite some time, just like print and radio are doing today.
There won't be meaningful change there until the Baby Boomer generation starts to die off, not to be morbid.
