The New York Times ran a story this morning quoting a NBC executive who said that
The Premier League is interested in doing news things in the United States.” Unfortunately, the article didn’t pinpoint what some of those new ideas are — whether it’s simply having a new media partner (NBC Universal instead of FOX). Or maybe they have more plans up their sleeve?
Perhaps it’s the 18-20 matches per season shown on free-to-air NBC television. Perhaps it’s a better online experience?
