  1. NBC will get the game that’s most relevant to the title chase if it’s not settled by then (example: Liverpool/Newcastle if Liverpool is leading but needs a draw to clinch)- if the title is already decided, then they’ll probably get the game that’s most relevant to a Champions League place.

    NBCSN will probably get the 2nd most important game (example: Chelsea/Cardiff if Chelsea can win the title with a win and a Liverpool loss).

    CNBC, USA, and MSNBC will get the next tier of important games- those involving relegation and or Champions league spots (example: Norwich/Arsenal could be important for both teams- Norwich could be fighting to stay up, and Arsenal could be fighting for a Champions League spot).

    Bravo/E!/Oxygen/Syfy/Esquire will get the matches that won’t have anything at stake for either team.

    1. Yup, but at least they’ll be showing all the games on channels that the majority of people who have cable/sat get with a basic package. No having to go online to watch a particular game. This is how NBC should be doing for every EPL game they show on the weekends.

      1. from your perspective yes but not from that of a business model. they are trying to get the most eyeballs to a single event so they can push up advertising numbers. At least they are all available live every week to someone who orders the right package.

        1. Well, I have the sports package from Comcast and pay extra for it and I on anything extra that NBC offers regarding EPL. So when you state “someone who orders the right package”, What would the “right package be?” and what does that include. Comcast in my area doesn’t carry Extra Time. Ironically, Comcast owns NBC.

          1. “Right package” would be a provider that offers Extra Time or more likely Live Extra (depending what you want).

            It’s strange that Comcast being an owner of NBC doesn’t offer ET, but it’s up to the cable/satellite provider to offer it

    1. Like them or not they are the biggest end supported team in the EPL both in the UK and around the world and generally they will get you higher ratings. No I am not a Manchester United fan.

  2. Hopefully none of the Title/Champions Lge/Relegation issues are resolved by then and it will be a fantastic Sunday! I’ll have to get new batteries for my remote

  3. Good job NBC to put the main game and post game show on their main NBC nationwide network. Lets hope NBC continues with this great coverage and takes over the Champions League coverage next.
