Ever since NBC Sports unveiled their Premier League coverage plans in April, there’s been a lot of excitement about not only the quantity of games that will be available, but also the new options to experience the world’s most popular sports league.
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of NBC’s Premier League coverage plans is their Premier League Extra Time service that will allow TV viewers to watch several live games at once (as long as your TV provider has signed up with NBC to offer the service to you).
For example, during the 10am ET timeslot — when most Premier League matches are played — there may be as many as five or six matches being played at the same time. NBC Sports Network will be showing one of them live. Telemundo might too, but there may be four or five games that are being played at the same time that aren’t on television. That is, unless you have Premier League Extra Time — which is an overflow channel allowing TV subscribers to pick and choose which games they want to watch.
As you can see above, there’s a screenshot of what Premier League Extra Time looks like. Of course, the design and layout of the service may change between now and when it launches in August.
While TV viewers will have Premier League Extra Time, there’s also NBC Sports Live Extra — the app that’ll enable you to see all of the games (again, as long as your TV provider has agreed a deal to bring the service to you).
The big question about Premier League Extra Time is which TV providers will offer the service beginning in August.
