Reuters: Amazon to charge $2.8 million for NFL ad packages

Howie Long-Short opines: Amazon clearly has big ambitions in the video space. And short term profits aren't among them.

Fan Marino says: Having the ability to stream a game and converse in real time within the same platform, provided Twitter users with a unique sports viewing option. It also didn't cost $99/year. Not a fan.
