“We expect Extra Time will be back on U-verse for its next slate of games next weekend (there are no Extra Time games tomorrow),” said a NBC Sports spokesperson.
Soccer fans throughout the United States who are AT&T U-Verse customers took to social media on Saturday to express their frustration that four Premier League games were not available to them on television, including Fulham against Sunderland, which featured Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey on the pitch. U-Verse customers were able to access NBC Sports Live Extra to watch the games online, but soccer fans had every right to be dissatisfied with AT&T U-Verse.
AT&T U-Verse was reached for comment on Saturday morning, but as of press time have not returned our e-mails or phone calls.
All other TV providers had no issues showing NBC’s Premier League Extra Time matches.
