Americans Can Watch Every Single Barclays Premier League Soccer Match On NBC, Starting Next Season


Snobby Americans, rejoice. We no longer have to use illegal streams to watch Barclays Premier League matches. NBC Sports will be broadcasting all 380 games, live (which is a big deal for them — remember the Olympics?), in some form.

For the first time ever fans will have live access to all 380 games of the Barclays Premier League. Here’s how it works. All matches will be presented live on television with studio pre and post game coverage. The matches will also be streamed live via NBC Sports Live Extra. Games not aired on a designated NBC Universal channel will be made available to distributors via Premier League Extra Time, a package of overflow television channels available at no extra cost for customers who receive NBC Sports Network. As NBC acquired both English and Spanish rights, the bundle will include 76 Spanish-language telecasts, 10 on Telemundo, 66 on Mun2.

NBC Universal paid $250 million for BPL rights for three years, and it appears they’re going all out. The Premier League probably isn’t the best soccer league in the wolrd anymore, but it’s not too far off. This is exciting and will be a massive step forward for soccer in America, helping to bring it to the mainstream.

It’s also a huge step forward to making British accents more accessible in the U.S., and, hopefully, it will breed more Americans into the fine mold of British die-hards, like this wonderful Gooner.

    NBC’s gameplan for the EPL looks like the greatest thing ever

    Nice but la liga isn’t better

    “…this wonderful Gooner” does not play for Arsenal anymore, NBC, he plays for League Champs Manchester United. And people wonder why the Brits look down their noses at us when we talk “soccer”.

    NBC has horrible announcers for the MLS. Ian Dark and “Maccer” will sorely be missed.

  • DELE

    NEVER FOX SOCCER PLAN WAS BETTER. WE HAD ACESS TO 2 MATCHES A WEEK BUT WITH NBC JUST ONE YOU HAVE TO PAY FAR MORE TO WATCH THE REMAINING MATCHES

    This is America’s attempt to capitalize on another spending market and the actual fans living in the usa are getting screwed out of our games again all for shitty announcer’s like honestly regis philman are u fucking sure that’s ur final answer i hope this channel and network get so much crap thrown at them just like the GOP and tea party bags, spend some money and everything is done for u if not we’ll capitalize on it, and throw is some old announcers that probably should have left the game a long time ago to carry it for us, without realizing this will be ur last breath
