DirecTV Will Offer Access to NBC’s Premier League Extra Time, According to Report

DirecTV will offer access to NBC’s Premier League Extra Time in time for the 2013-14 Premier League season, according to a report on DirecTV’s website.

Premier League Extra Time is the product from NBC that will feature a slew of live matches to choose from on television that are not being televised elsewhere. Combined with a subscription to other NBC networks such as NBC, NBC Sports Network and other NBC Universal channels, the overflow channels will allow DirecTV customers to have access to all 380 Premier League matches each season.

“More than 180 matches not airing on the NBC suite of channels can be found in Premier League Extra Time, a free package of EPL matches available to DIRECTV customers with CHOICE XTRA package and above,” read the message on DirecTV’s support website. “The Premier League Extra Time channel range has yet to be announced and will be available in HD only.”

If true, this is outstanding news for soccer fans in the United States.

While DirecTV didn’t mention whether the TV provider would also offer its customers access to NBC Sports Live Extra, the free app (with a subscription to NBC Sports Network) that will offer all 380 games live and online via the web, smart phone or tablet devices, the chances are very likely that DirecTV will offer it if they’re offering Premier League Extra Time. There’s no cost to DirecTV to have them add NBC Sports Live Extra for its customers.

More news is expected from NBC this coming week.
