What’s Missing From Your Premier League Viewing Experience?

question mark Whats Missing From Your Premier League Viewing Experience?

NBC Universal has a lot of work ahead of them in preparation for their Premier League debut on US television next August.

We’ve already discussed which A-team of presenters, commentators and pundits we’d like to see on NBC Sports beginning next summer, but what other recommendations do you have based on what’s currently missing in your Premier League viewing experience.

I’ll give you a couple that I think NBC should seriously consider (that we currently don’t get with FOX Soccer):

1. A Saturday night match highlights package similar in format to BBC’s Match Of The Day,

2. A weekly interview/caller-driven show. It’d be similar to FOX Football Fone-In, but the show would feature hard-hitting interviews with opinionated guests (no soft ball questions to footballers who are boring to listen to). Plus, callers would be able to dial in to ask questions to the hosts and guests. Instead of FOX Football Fone-In’s two hour duration, one hour should be sufficient.

But what are you currently missing in your Premier League viewing experience on US television? What would make it a better experience?

Post your suggestions below.
