  1. Dominjon says:

    Well as a Liverpool fan it appears the first two matches are televised and as match 3 is Liv vs Utd that is bound to be on, I would guess on NBC as it is always one of the most watched sporting events around he world every time it happens. So easy to hype.
    Gives me a little more time hoping for Charter to cut a deal to have the extra live app.

  2. Pete Q says:

    Great news, Gaffer.

  3. Jonathan says:

    Do you know when the full list of what days the matches will be played on gets released?

  4. Guy says:

    Stoke on first! Perfect. :-)

    I’m sure it’s because of the Liverpool-U.S. connection, but I’ll take it any way I can get it.

    37, 36, 35……

  5. IanCransonsKnees says:

    I’m tempted by the trip to Anfield for this one. Will probably wait and see who we sign first. No Suarez though, is Sturridge ruled out for the start of the season too?

  6. CTBlues says:

    Why would Belize have be bribed to loose to the US?

  7. Mike says:

    Is At&t Uverse expected to carry Premier League Extra Time/NBC Sports Live Extra?

  8. Leafsfan1967 says:

    This is great an exciting schedule news. I just wish that DirecTV would get their act together and do a deal with NBC.

    I’m worried that their nasty contract negotiations with Comcast over Versus a few years ago is poisoning the discussions with Comcast/NBC now.

  9. Kagawa26 says:

    I didnt want Moyes before and i feel the same way now. He took too long with Thiago andnow hes going to Bayern. Hes a tool. Why we go after a guy whos team played long ball football and has never won a trophy. Plenty of great managers in Europe that would help atrract continental players.

  10. sicariis says:

    Also if you’re a Cox or Charter you need to take action as currently we are sitting in the dark with no access to NBC Sports Live Extra.

  11. rej4sl says:

    We are comcast – and when I called he said he would be very surprised if we did not get NBC Premier League Extra Time. He did not have the info yet but here is hoping.
    We do get the NBC Sports Live Extra though and all 10 channels in HD which will carry the games throughout the season.

  12. rej4sl says:

    The 10 channels not the Premier League Extra time … meaning , NBC, NBC Sports, and the other cable channels which could carry games owned by NBC or Comcast.

  13. Carter says:

    So confused on the scheduling of these games on TV. Can anyone tell me how its going to work, how many games/ week will be televised? I thought I read a few months back that they will be airing games on their other networks like MSNBC etc. Is this still the case? I hope we don’t miss out on games with the switch.

  14. Javier E says:

    Any idea on what game NBC Sports will be showing on the 10am slot on the August 17th?

  15. hartley says:

    Well, since I don’t cable and won’t have for a while, I am hoping that NBC lives up to their proposed 20 matches over the season on free TV. This first match is the only marked on your schedule, but if NBC does show 20 free matches, that should be about one per month during the season. I hope each free match has very high viewership to show NBC that there should be more free matches shown in the U.S. For many of us, NBC could run NFL off the map pretty quickly with plenty of free EPL matches.
