Amazon Prime Video will be the exclusive home for an NFL playoff game next postseason.

Joe Flint of Wall Street Journal broke the news on Friday, two days before the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs notably played in the first-ever NFL playoff game exclusively featured on a streaming service (NBCUniversal’s Peacock) when they took down the Miami Dolphins 26-7 in the AFC Wild Card round to begin this year’s postseason run.

NBCUniversal paid at least $110 million for the exclusive rights to that game. Per Flint, they were in the mix to be the home for another postseason matchup next year, but it’ll be Amazon who gets it in 2024.

Per Flint, the Chiefs-Dolphins game had 23 million viewers and “accounted for 30 percent of web traffic,” making it the most streamed United States event of all time.
