Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football” will be measured like NFL games on traditional TV, using Nielsen’s panel-based national TV ratings. A three-year deal between Amazon and Nielsen marks the first time a live program on a streaming service will be part of Nielsen’s measurement of national TV audiences, and will include full coverage of the TNF broadcast – pregame, in-game and postgame programming – on Prime Video and Twitch, as well as the over-the-air stations in teams’ local markets each week, and out-of-home viewing. “Our collaboration with Nielsen will allow us to provide advertisers with familiar campaign measurement to make apples-to-apples comparisons across their multi-channel media investments,” said Srishti Gupta, Director of Media Measurement for Amazon Ads. “Additionally, advertisers will have access to metrics from Amazon that will provide actionable insights to understand brand awareness, engagement and sales.”
