  1. I don’t care who is playing. When you have Martin Tyler commentating, the game can be secondary. Now if we could ever hear Ian Darke do a premier league game that would be the icing on the cake. Awesome!! Thanks for the treat, NBC.

  2. Manchester United will be on Premier League Extra Time tomorrow at 10am. Of course, in New York City, the media capital of the world, Time Warner still doesn’t provide its customers with this channel. We have hundreds of rubbish channels. Even if we are willing to pay to watch, still, Time Warner doesn’t care. As they say, “for shame.” I have no time for Time Warner!

      1. Thanks for clarifying. I remember now that I read the original article. With all their money behind marketing EPL, NBC has done a poor job at promoting which is which…on air, cable, online. Just my opinion. There’s no way to “record” online is there?

        1. All the games are available online for free, live. Your best bet is to bookmark our schedule at the top of the page.

          The games are available on replay online within a couple of hours after game time.

      2. I realize Premier League Extra Time isn’t online in NYC but a cable channel in the 300s. All the “Extras” make it difficult to understand at first.

    1. Twc offers the Extra Time channels on a region specific option so most of us do not have it–looks like you lucked out. We do not have Live Extra access. Instead, they offer extra time channels via their twc app and twc tv. This allows us to watch live matches at home–the channels are not available away from a home twc connection. You should be able to access matches this way.

      We cannot access any of the replays as TWC doesn’t offer access to Live Extra. Unless there is a workaround–when we try to access we are prompted for a login.

  3. I can’t stand Peter Drury either. Really annoying and patronizing. At least he is doing the first game so gets him out of the way for the rest of the weekend.

  4. Now that I have checked it looks like Chelsea vs Fulham. Is this the game that Martin Tyler will be commentating? It is on NBCSP at 3:00 on Monday. Thanks

  5. Is Comcast still disabling the FF and RW options during games on premier league extra?

    If I change the channel at some point during the United game then switch back are the still making you watch the game front the very start again like they did the first week if the season.

  6. Gaffer, is it possible to disable the add on of the screen on nbc live extra’s website? I’m looking into connecting my lap top to the tv.

  7. I’m ready for the pitchforks, but Martin Tyler just doesn’t do it for me. There are multiple times when there are scoring chances but you would think the team is just passing the ball in the back. Give me Ian Darke, Arlo White, or others on this list, even Adrian Healey over Tyler.

    HOWEVER, I think Jon Speight is the best. Here’s a little sampling.

    Speaking of this video on Fox’s site. The one thing Fox did better than NBC was their video player and the number of videos. They would have every single goal on their site by the end of the games. Instead, NBC just has the highlights with non-in-game commentary. Hope they change this.
