What's new on Amazon Prime Video for October 2017?

Amazon Prime Video typically only adds a few smaller pieces of content to its Australian offerings each month, and while it hasn't advertised its full schedule, we do know its streaming schedule includes an array of live NFL games as part of a deal struck with the NFL for global streaming rights. Those games kick off in late September.

The key difference here compared to any other streaming content is that Amazon Prime Video explicitly does not retain replay rights, so if you want to watch, you'll have to do so live.

The time difference means that they air on a given Friday morning through the rest of the year, with times varying slightly depending on game schedules and the changes to daylight saving relative to your particular part of Australia.

Here's the September/October game schedule, including Australian timing:

Amazon Prime Video October 2017
29 September 2017
Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers (10:25 AEST)
6 October 2017
New England Patriots vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11:25 AEST)
13 October 2017
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Carolina Panthers (11:25 AEST)
20 October 2017
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders (11:25 AEST)
27 October 2017
Miami Dolphins vs. Baltimore Ravens (11:25 AEST)
