Are You More Likely to Watch MLS Games On TV Now that NBC Will Carry EPL? [POLL]

nbc mls 600x406 Are You More Likely to Watch MLS Games On TV Now that NBC Will Carry EPL? [POLL]

With the English Premier League media rights moving from FOX Soccer to NBC Universal beginning in the summer of 2013, NBC Universal will be broadcasting both English Premier League and MLS matches to soccer fans based in the United States.

MLS, NBC and many MLS fans are hoping that NBC’s acquisition of the Premier League rights in the US will help increase the TV ratings for MLS matches. NBC plans on cross-promoting its coverage of the two leagues, so that when viewers are watching Premier League matches, they’ll be updated that MLS matches will be shown later that day or weekend. And vice-versa.

But will it have an impact? Are you more likely to watch MLS games on TV now that NBC Sports will begin showing the Premier League on US television, or not? Share your opinions in the comments section below. And be sure to answer the poll today.
