Amazon is known for its left-field maneuvers as a company, but the announcement earlier this year that it would stream NFL games this upcoming season was particularly surprising. But for the NFL, the two companies have more in common than spectators might think. At the GeekWire Sports Tech Summit in Seattle, NFL chief operating officer Tod Leiweke said both companies shared a common focus on their customer base, Geekwire reported. "It's been fun for us to talk to the Amazon guys," Leiweke said. "They are just amazing at what they do and how they do it and you talk about breaking trail and changing the world and really thinking about the world in such abstract and different ways, but they are focused as we think we are on the end user."

Starting with Amazon's home-grown Original content, Amazon Prime subscribers can expect four new TV shows and one movie. This stars Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo and Joel Edgerton in a dark comedy/action film about a businessman who crosses the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
