Amazon Prime made history Thursday. The streaming service’s “Thursday Night Football” booth featured Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer. It was the first time an all-female broadcasting team covered an NFL game.
Problem is, no one could find the broadcast.
When fans initially tuned in to watch the Minnesota Vikings take on the Los Angeles Rams on Amazon Prime, they were treated to the normal Fox broadcast of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews. In order to hear Storm and Kremer, they had to change a couple settings on Amazon.
The process caused confusion and frustration.
Just spent 10 minutes, after having signed up for Amazon Prime, trying to find a way to watch Storm/Kremer tonight. Gave up. Waaaay too complicated. Turned back to Fox.

Wait. So Amazon gets Kremer and Storm, and it's just a separate audio feed? We still have to look at Joe Buck and Troy Aikman while the women are commentating? Half measure indeed.

Hey @PrimeVideo i was excited for Kremer/Storm tonight. It’s terrible that after promoting this pairing, I had to search and hunt to find a setting in which I could hear their broadcast. Classic bait and switch.

In order to get the feed of Storm and Kremer, fans had to go to the audio settings area and find the Storm-Kremer feed. You could only get audio of the duo.
Amazon Prime is set to stream 10 more NFL games this season. After Thursday night’s confusion, the company might want to consider making the Storm-Kremer feed more visible moving forward.
