Time Warner Adds Premier League Extra Time But No Go On NBC Sports Live Extra
If you’re a Time Warner customer and you watch the Premier League, it’s good news and bad news today. The good news is that Time Warner subscribers will have access to Premier League Extra Time, the service that provides overflow channels that will air the live Premier League matches that are not being shown on NBC Sports Network or other NBC channels. Thanks to all of the soccer fans who responded to our campaign to call Time Warner to demand access to the service.
The bad news is that, with eight days to go before the new season begins, both Time Warner and Brighthouse customers have not provided EPL fans with access to NBC Sports Live Extra. Time Warner and Brighthouse are the only two major US TV providers who have not offered their subscribers access to the service.
With NBC Sports Live Extra, soccer fans (with a paid TV subscription to NBC Sports Network) can access all 380 games on the web, smartphone and tablet devices. The service is being offered free-of-charge by NBC to TV providers who want to participate.
With so little time to go before the season kicks off, it’s decision time for Time Warner customers. If you want online access to all 380 games this season, you may want to consider switching to a different TV provider.
Here’s the list of TV providers who are offering access to NBC Sports Live Extra: AT&T U-verse, Cablevision’s Optimum, Charter, Comcast’s Xfinity TV, Cox, DIRECTV, DISH, Suddenlink and Verizon FiOS.
