Amazon delivers dazzling profits, as well as $20 Prime hike and NFL…

If you only follow one team, there is also a Follow Your Team pass which is about $50 cheaper. Or, if you only want to see a few specific games, there are weekly passes. Last year, these cost $19.95. I would expect pricing will be pretty close to the same this year.

Not every country’s television networks give a lot of time to American football. So if you are an NFL football fan who doesn’t live in the US, it might be hard to watch your favorite teams. Fortunately, if you have a good internet connection, there is a solution. It’s called NFL Game Pass.

Amazon said it expects operating profit this quarter between $1.1 billion and $1.9 billion, up from $628 million a year earlier. Analysts were expecting $1.01 billion, according to analytics firm FactSet.

Prime, Amazon’s loyalty club that includes fast shipping, video streaming and other benefits, has been key to Amazon’s strategy. Its more than 100 million members globally spend above average on Amazon.

Nov 9 (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc said on Thursday its online streaming service Amazon Prime Video would make a behind-the-scenes multi-part exclusive series that follows English Premier League club Manchester City through the current season.

The forecast beat expectations on Wall Street, sending shares up 7 percent to a new record high in after-hours trade and adding $8 billion to the net worth of Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive and largest shareholder.

For the most part though, the Game Pass is a great option for international NFL fans. The streaming is very good quality and you can either watch the games live or you can watch them On Demand the day after a game airs. This is really convenient if you live in a time zone that would make watching reddit nfl streams games live difficult.

Seattle-based Amazon is winning business from older, big box rivals by delivering virtually any product to customers at a low cost, and at times faster than it takes to buy goods from a physical store. It is expanding across industries, too, striking a $130 million deal to stream Thursday night games for the U.S. National Football League online and working to ship groceries to doorsteps from Whole Foods stores nationwide.

NFL Game Pass is a joint venture between the National Football League and Yahoo Sports. Up until the regular season starts, you can sign up for an off-season game pass for under $40 and watch all of last season’s games, including the Super Bowl. Once the regular 2009 season starts, you can buy a season pass for all NFL games. This doesn’t include the post season. For the 2008 seasons, this pass cost $209.95 in US dollars.

Of course, the political atmosphere in America, activism and hashtags ruled Twitter, with #Resist the most used. That was followed by #MAGA, #ImpeachTrump, #TrumpTrain, “WomensMarch and #NotMyPresident.

President Barack Obama , with 1.7 million retweets in August, was second, posting, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” It is a quote from Nelson Mandela.

The blasting by Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James of President Donald Trump rocketed around the world after he “rescinded” Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House to celebrate the Golden State Warrior’s NBA championship.

While he did not make the most retweeted list, Trump took the top spot for the most tweeted about an elected world leader. He also came in No. 1 for top tweeted U.S. elected officials, with Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan taking second and third. PBS’ special live coverage of Trump’s inauguration day was the most viewed live stream broadcast of the year.

Now for the bad news. Well, it will be bad news for some people. The NFL Game Pass is meant just for viewers outside North America. So if you don’t live in the US, but live in another country in what NFL defines as the North American region, you won’t be able to get the NFL Game Pass and you likely can’t get the US alternative, NFL Supercast, that’s available through DirecTV. These countries include Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Bahamas.
