Programming Reminder: NBC Sports Network Launches 2 Original EPL Programs Tonight

Be sure to tune in to NBC Sports Network tonight for the launch of NBC’s first two original EPL programs — Premier League Club Guide and Premier League Countdown.

Premier League Club Guide debuts at 7:30pm ET and is then followed by Premier League Countdown at 8:30pm ET. The first show will feature Rebecca Lowe and Kyle Martino taking a look at all 20 clubs. The show will help people who don’t have a team to pick a side. It includes guest appearances by Men In Blazers, Michelle Beadle, Football Four Eyes and others.

The second show, Premier League Countdown, will feature Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe taking a look at the top ten storylines for the upcoming season.

After a whirlwind of news today from NBC Sports about its Premier League coverage for the upcoming season, be sure to watch the new shows live tonight or set your DVR to get your first impression of NBC’s coverage of the Barclays Premier League.

I don’t know about you, but I’m incredibly excited — not just to see NBC’s coverage of the Premier League, but also to see the return of Rebecca Lowe to US TV screens.

  1. Very revealing that NBC Sports in the Premier League Club Guide gave a very short segment to Liverpool. Even Stoke were mentioned before them.

    1. I’m enjoying the show, but I’ve never heard of Football Four Eyes before. And they’re not funny.

        1. Agreed. It’s really about time Liverpool was a force again with that support.

          I can take or leave I’m forever blowing bubbles though.

  2. Loving this club selection show. Even though it’s not new information for me it’s presenting information in a very entertaining fashion. If this is a glimpse into how NBC is going to handle the Premier League then I think we’re in for some excellent stuff.

    1. Rebecca just mentioned pie and mash! What a girl! I’d happily take her to Manzes on tower bridge road for a 2 & 2.

  3. Well, I love the demeanor of Lowe, Earle and Mustoe. No yucking it up, just sound information and opinion. Imagine that!

  4. Watching the shows and they are quality to this point. Let’s see what else NBC will roll out. All I can say is good start.

  5. I think Colin Cowherd’s toolish ways rubbed off onto Beadle while they were hosts on Sports Nation. I like ManU because I like winners and because they won last year. Now I could careless if someone likes ManU but those are your two reasons please I bet she didn’t even watch one game of ManU last year, but now that NBC has the rights she has too.

  6. Halfway thru ‘Premier League Countdown’ and finding it to be outstanding. Well informed, reasonable well thought out opinions and good breadth of topics. Well done.

    1. Same here Chris. I’ve been a big fan of Robbie Mustoe, Robbie Earle and Rebecca Lowe for a long time. They elevate the coverage of the Premier League instead of the jokes, giggling and rambling from FOX.

    1. Informative, but not dumbed down. Behind the scenes, a lot of work has been put into making everything look and feel so perfect.

  7. What a great set of shows. Assuming that’s an indication of what we can expect week in and week out, we are in for a treat.

    I have never given much attention to the studio segments, but I believe that is about to change.

    1. AGREED! We now have a reason to watch and pay attention to coverage before matches, at half-time and after the final whistle.

    1. I believe the Gaffer has pointed out on another article that the NBC Sports Live Extra app goes live next Wednesday, August 14.

  8. I am in love with Rebecca Lowe. I remember when I first saw her on ESPN Pregame and Halftime for the EPL I was taken back by her :). Michelle Beadle. I dont care for her humor. Was not even funny. It was rather annoying to be honest.

  9. Lowe, Mustoe and Earle NAILED IT!

    Finally a team really knowledgeable about football and having intelligent discussion… Great job really looking forward to the new season. This puts Fox’s laugh and tickle fest pre/post show to shame.



  10. Really nice job by NBC. I was not expecting it to be that well done. I guess I’m used to Fox’s drivel. Great job NBC, can’t wait for the start of the season.

  11. So pleased I missed this show, from all the positive reviews and commentary sounds like it was terrible…

    HEY NBC, how about a replay not at 5am pacific…there are 60M OF US ON PACIFIC TIME ZONE…CMON!!

    CAPS lock off now…

    I said Rebecca would be a hit and Kyle should be given another chance…

  12. Just a point of correction, the Premier League Countdown show is actually live and not recorded or on replay. Great job by NBC though, this is a real statement of intent and NBC is going all in on soccer…
