Schedule of NBC’s 47 Hours Of Premier League Programming In Gameweek 1

nbc epl1 Schedule of NBCs 47 Hours Of Premier League Programming In Gameweek 1

Other than ESPN’s wonderful opening segments on Saturday mornings that had Ian Darke and Steve McManaman at the grounds of English football stadiums around England plus the always informative half-time chats between Paul Dempsey and Pat Dolan on Setanta, this weekend will be the first time ever in Premier League US soccer history where we have pre-match, half time, post-match and shoulder programming that are actually worth watching.

Instead of just tuning in when the match is getting ready to kick off and running away as soon as the final whistle blows, the quality and quantity of original Premier League coverage this opening week that has the potential to completely blow us away with 47 hours of EPL coverage coming to us in the first week.

Here’s the complete schedule of Premier League programming from NBC Sports for tonight through next Friday (all times Eastern):

    So excited for the new season!!

  2. fwths says:

    for some reason my my at&t uverse programming guide states that Premier League Review will play at 4pm PT here in san diego. i don’t know whether this is a mistake or not but i really look forward to the preview show every week.

  3. BD says:

    7:00 PM Eastern

  4. Tets says:

    Beyond excited for this season..however one question that hopefully somebody can answer. I don’t get TV at my school so I was wondering if there’s anywhere online to be able to watch the extra programming like pre/post match coverage, MOTD show, premier league news shows, etc. Thanks! And kudos to NBC for such amazing coverage!

    • Christopher Harris says:

      It’s all going to be on NBC Sports Network only, not online — as far as I know.

    • Frill Artist says:

      If you or your parents or someone you know has NBC Sports Network at home, you can download the NBC Live Extra app or visit the website on your laptop and use their login.

  5. JJ says:

    NBC Sports Network app doesn’t work good at all. The app needs to be fixed. Why wouldn’t they update the app before start of season? The extra programming should be on the app.

  6. Eplnfl says:

    It will be hard to sleep tonight. Visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads kind of stuff.

    Almost looking forward more to the MOTD show which fills a void for the US fans where we never had a full wrap up show in the late evening.

    Clearly tomorrow makes the dream the reality.

  7. Guy says:

    If I go to bed now, will 7:00 a.m. come sooner?

    • Frill Artist says:

      Depends on what timezone you’re in. I’m on the East Coast so I’m looking at…10 hours till first kick off at Stoke.

  8. steve says:

    nbc is hitting a friggin’ grand slam with its coverage.

    i thought espn did a bang up job as well.

    Fox is just a mickey mouse outfit all the way around. what espn did, and what NBC is doing now just further shows what a joke that channel was.

  9. Chris says:

    So just so I understand this right. Match of The Day On Saturday will have cut down highlights of the games from Saturday ?

  10. Wongo1 says:

    Too all of those football needs an “American” voice folks please see the example NBC has chosen to set.

    This is how you get an audience jazzed and interested, not by putting braying fools on the screen who know f-all and would rather try to come up with idiotic catch phrases than learn about sport. Now rise and fire that.

    Morgan Green I am calling you out in particular for supporting Gus “the donkey” Johnson.

  11. He's Livid says:

    Any word if Charter Cable has plans to add Premier League Extra?

  12. cmasia says:

    Chris,

    The Friday 7:00AM “News” show is a live IMG production, done daily at noon from London.
    We get this in Asia every day and it is a daily rundown of news and commentary presented by a woman who knows her stuff, with a rotating group of guests who work for IMG…Okoku, Burley, etc.
    At least we’re getting it once a week.

    The show I’d kill for is the 2 hour panel show hosted by James Richardson.
    Friday night is the preview and Monday night is the review.
    James Richardson would be an instant hit here.

    Cheers.

  13. TheDuke says:

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if those four whole match replay slots were filled with the four live extra/extra time games? Now before you say it I know they are probably going with United, City, the gooners and Chelsea.

  14. Michael says:

    When I checked Comcast/Xfinity On Demand yesterday like NBC recommended (Baltimore, MD area), it wasn’t available. I woke up this morning and it was added overnight.

    It breaks the game apart by halves. The 1st half of the 10am games were up by the start of the second half, so catching up was easy. As of 12:30, the second halves are up for all of the games.
