Great news for soccer fans in the US. DISH Network has agreed a deal with NBC Sports to provide its subscribers with access to NBC Sports Live Extra.
That means that when the next Premier League season begins on August 17, 2013, DISH Network subscribers who subscribe to NBC Sports Network will have also have access to every single Premier League match shown live on the web, mobile and tablet devices via the NBC Sports Live Extra app.
No word yet whether DISH Network will have overflow channels available on TV to show many of the other Premier League Extra Time broadcasts.
While it’s excellent news for Premier League soccer fans who want access to 380 live games a year, DirecTV still hasn’t reached a deal with NBC Sports to provide NBC Sports Live Extra to its subscribers. Here’s information on how to demand your TV provider adds NBC Sports Live Extra and Premier League Extra Time.
Meanwhile, if you are a DISH Network subscriber, it wouldn’t hurt to contact DISH to tell them you want Premier League Extra Time, too.
Other than DISH Network, the TV providers who will provide their customers with access to NBC Sports Live Extra include Comcast xFinity TV, Mediacom, Optimum, Suddenlink, Grande and Verizon FIOS.
