Amazon, YouTube, Verizon and Twitter are in contention to bid for streaming rights for NFL's Thursday Night Football as reported by Bloomberg.


All three social media giants are reportedly bidding hundreds of millions of dollars for the five-year contract. 


Twitter has already paid $10m for NFL's digital streaming rights in 2016 while Amazon won them in 2017 for $50m. NFL is seeking help from its TV rights partner, 21st Century Fox, to make a decision.


Meanwhile, YouTube's CEO Susan Wojcicki expressed how she'd "love to stream" the NFL while speaking at the Code Media conference in California earlier this week.


The report further stated that NFL is searching for a tech company to offer livestreaming along with social-media as it looks to attract a younger audience.  

Despite a decline in its TV audience for two years in row, NFL has managed to secure massive price for TV rights
