Amazon’s streaming schedule is getting busier in the later weeks of the NFL season as the tech giant and the league announced Monday that a week 16 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals will stream exclusively on Prime Video and Twitch on Dec. 26.

Amazon, which renewed its multi-year deal to stream “Thursday Night Football” games in April, is also streaming the FOX and NFL Network “Christmas Special” on Dec. 25 between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. It’s the first time Prime Video has carried live NFL action on back to back days.

The tech giant also confirmed that it will stream the CBS NFL Wild Card playoff game on Jan. 10. It’s the first postseason NFL game to be simulcast on Prime Video.

Prime Video and Twitch coverage of the NFL is available to more than 150 million paid Prime members worldwide, and in more than 240 countries and territories excluding China, the United Kingdom, and Spain. “TNF” games are also live streamed on NFL, FOX and FOX Deportes digital properties, as well as team platforms and Yahoo Sports.

The exclusive game on Dec. 26 will also be televised in both teams’ home markets as part of NFL policy.
