You have a choice to see the Thursday games that are out if your area. Subscribe to Amazon Prime. Just like in years past people had a choice. Subscribe to DIRECTV as long as they could get a sat signal.Actually no I have no answer. But mark it down it will hurt out of market fans who want to see their favorite teams & an the NFL will get an indication of this starting on Thursday Nights this year when Thursday Night Games move to Amazon. I already know I will miss a game this year of my favorite team because they have a Thursday Night Game & I don’t live in the teams market for local carriage.
