All in all, more than 750 million minutes of live NFL coverage was watched on Prime Video this season, which equates to 12.5 million hours.

The most successful game for Amazon Prime Video proved to be the Dec. 7 Thursday-night matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, which attracted approximately 2 million live viewers.

Live streaming was most popular — on a per capita basis — in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, D.C. Internationally, Mexico topped the list, with more watching the NFL on Prime Video than in any other country, followed by Germany, South Korea, Brazil, the UK, and Japan.
