CHICAGO — Trying to watch tonight’s game but don’t have a TV? If you’re an Amazon Prime member, they’ve got you covered.

The company announced today that it will launch Amazon Prime Now in Chicago, giving Prime members same-day delivery on “tens of thousands of items.”

2-hour delivery is free, but if that’s not fast enough, orders can be filled in 1 hour for an extra $7.99. The service will be available everyday from 8 a.m. to midnight, and orders can be placed through the Amazon Prime Now app.

Prime Now began Friday in the 60614, 60610, 60654, 60622 and 60642 ZIP codes, and Amazon spokeswoman Nina Lindsey says it will expand to many more areas over the coming days.

The service has already been available in Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Indianapolis, Manhattan and Miami, and will launch in additional cities throughout 2015.
