DENVER — When the Broncos head to San Diego to face the Chargers on Thursday night, fans can watch the game live on a phone, computer or connected TV.
It will be the fifth “Thursday Night Football” game being streamed on Twitter this season. The first four games were streamed without a glitch.

“In addition to live streaming video of NFL action, the partnership includes in-game highlights from TNF as well as pre-game Periscope broadcasts from players and teams, giving fans an immersive experience before, during and after games,” according to the NFL.
Streaming the game on Twitter will make it available to more than 800 million people worldwide, on mobile phones, tablets, PCs and connected TVs, the NFL said.
Twitter launched an Apple TV, Fire TV and Xbox One app in September for users who want to steam the game on their TVs.
The quality seems to rival HD even on bigger screens, according to CNN.
“Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.
You’ll see a video stream at the top of the page, a live timeline of related tweets and a place to type in your own tweet.
“The response from fans and commentators has been extremely positive with respect to the live sports streaming experience, which combined the worlds of live sports and real-time fan chatter,” Forbes reported.
