NBC Will Make All Premier League Games Available On Demand via NBC Sports Live Extra Beginning This Weekend

NBC Sports LIve Extra NBC Will Make All Premier League Games Available On Demand via NBC Sports Live Extra Beginning This Weekend

UPDATED: Beginning this weekend, all Premier League matches will be available on demand via NBC Sports Live Extra.

Up until now, only one to two select games each weekend have been available on demand. During an exclusive interview with a NBC Sports executive in late August, he said that NBC Sports was working diligently on making all the games available on demand. And the corporation has now followed through on that promise.

What this means for soccer fans in the United States is that after every Premier League match ends, the games will be made available to watch on demand via the NBC Sports Live Extra, which is accessible via the web. On demand capabilities for tablet and smartphone devices for all games is not available at this time.

In order to access NBC Sports Live Extra, you’ll need to subscribe to NBC Sports Network via your TV provider, and your TV provider needs to have an agreement in place with NBC to provide the NBC Sports Live Extra service. Thankfully, the vast majority of TV providers wised up and offered the free service to its customers.

The on-demand capability is fantastic news for soccer fans who may miss a live broadcast of a match — especially those early kick-offs where soccer fans on the west coast have a 4:45am PT start-time for a Saturday match.

Here’s the TV and Internet schedule for all Premier League matches this weekend.
