Schedule of Premier League Games On US TV Revealed For August Through September

nbc epl commitment Schedule of Premier League Games On US TV Revealed For August Through September

The return of the soccer season is just weeks away with the Premier League scheduled to return to action on Saturday, August 10.

Now that Sky Sports and BT Sport have carved out which games the UK broadcasters will show during the early stages of the 2014/15 season, we can defer which matches will be shown on NBC. There are still some question marks regarding the Saturday 12:30pm ET games as well as which 10am ET matches will be featured on NBCSN. Plus there are often a few surprises. But for the most part, this will be the schedule for the first 7 gameweeks of the season.

    No Telemundo games at all?

  2. Remy says:

    Univision numbers are out also,

    The Germany/Argentina FIFA World Cup final earned 9.2 million viewers on Univision Sunday afternoon

  3. Nicolas Hu says:

    Wow there are so many games on Live Extra that I won’t be able to watch :( My cable provider has NBCSN but it didn’t subscribe to Live Extra.

  4. Pakapala says:

    Can someone reminds me which broadcaster has the Europa League this year again?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      FOX Sports.

      • Pakapala says:

        Thanks Christopher. I thought last season was their last. Did they renew or is this upcoming season their last?
        Are they showing the qualification rounds as well?

        • Christopher Harris says:

          NBC has the rights until the end of the 2015/16 season.

          • Pakapala says:

            Hold on now I’m confused… Do you mean NBC has the rights to the Europa League and Champions League qualification rounds until the end of 2015/2016 season or did you mean Fox Sports?

            • Christopher Harris says:

              FOX Sports has the rights to the Europa League and UEFA Champions League qualification games (although ESPN3.com showed some of the UEFA Champions League qualification games last summer). This is a thread about NBC Sports.

          • Pakapala says:

            Yes I know this is about NBC’s and the premier league games schedule, and I didn’t meant to hijack it but the list in the article also has Europa League games of the Premier League teams playing in August and September so I wanted to know where I should expect to watch those games.

            Thanks!

  5. James says:

    Any developments on direct digital subscriptions to the Prem or the availability of games on the NBC app for Time Warner customers?

  6. jtm371 says:

    Chris
    Just wondering if you have heard of any new bells or whistles for the broadcast this year?

  7. Mufc77 says:

    The WC was a nice distraction over the summer but premier league football is where it’s at. I cant wait for the weekly debates to get going again on WST.

  8. R.O says:

    Again with this “NBC Live Extra” idiocy!

    Example: for Saturday, August 30, no 10 am game on NBCSN. So we miss out on Everton and the Spurs game. In fact I’ve noticed that none of the Saturday 10 am games will be shown on NBCSN or NBC and only on Live Extra. What about those of us who don’t get Live Extra?

    I really hate this crap. Show the darn games on TV! sheeze. We complain about FOX but at least they showed replays of the games that they couldn’t show live.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      R.O., the article states that the 10am ET slots have been decided yet in terms of which one will get the NBCSN game.

      All games are shown on TV via Premier League Extra, but it depends whether your TV provider carries that or not. That’s not NBC’s fault if they don’t.

      • R.O says:

        “but it depends whether your TV provider carries that or not. That’s not NBC’s fault if they don’t.”

        Chris except that Comcast owns NBC, so in a way it is. And yes I’ve called, e-mailed sent up carrier pigeons, etc to get Comcast to carry Live Extra. No luck. Just like they won’t carry FS2.

        I’m paying extra to get sports package and a few other extras,(and it costing me an arm and a leg) yet Comcast (who owns NBC (as I repeat) refuses to carry these channels (and Goltv).

        I can also see if one day they do, they’ll want to charge extra. Such a rip off.

        • Grayson says:

          Sorry, but if you want to see more soccer, why not get DirectTV? They have the NBC Extra games, plus they have all the UEFA Europa and Champs league games, not just the ones they show on Fox.

          I get your beef about Comcast owning NBC, but if you want to see all the games, directv has been great for me.

          • R.O says:

            “Sorry, but if you want to see more soccer, why not get DirectTV?”

            So you’re assuming that I can just get DirectTV, hmmm.

            Well then tell my landlord/owner of place to let me install a dish, or tell my company to give me a huge raise so I can afford to by my own place.

            Folks like you just crack me up. Think everyone can either afford anything or have the option to get whatever “you” have.

            Please. Such arrogance.

          • Jeff says:

            To be fair to Grayson R.O, he couldn’t possibility know about your living/working conditions & hence your inability to have DirecTV. It was a general statement/advice.

          • R.O says:

            Jeff wrote: “To be fair to Grayson R.O, he couldn’t possibility know about your living/working conditions”

            Jeff you’re absolutely correct that Grayson couldn’t know, as such he shouldn’t make a statement like ” why not get XXX then”. I’ve seen these types of statements and comments by so many people on a variety of blogs on various things.

            People assume a lot and in IMO if they don’t know about a persons situation they shouldn’t make the comment such as Grayson did.

            Maybe I’m too sensitive about such things, but it just rubs me the wrong way.

            Cheers.

        • Pakapala says:

          I have Comcast. As far as I know, they make those NBC Extra games available live on Demand. At least that’s how it was last season; I have watched some of those games when they were on in the past.

          You might want to check on that R.O.

    • Jeff says:

      NBCSN uses ‘flex-scheduling’ for the Sat 10am ET games, meaning they generally don’t pick what game they will show until a week before. It means that ideally the most ‘intriguing/interesting/important’ game is/will be shown on the network. If your provider doesn’t offer Live Extra or Extra Time (TV version of LE for the EPL), then maybe you should switch to another cable/satellite provider?

      However I do agree with you that all games should be replayed on NBCSN sometime during the week.

    • tim says:

      There will always be one complainer with something is so close to perfect.

  9. Jeff says:

    About the Saturday 12:30pm ET games, NBC Sports has a website which shows advance schedules for NBC Sports programming (search for something along the lines of ‘nbc sports sport events’). Based on that, it provides some idea of what games will air on NBC, based on what time-slots are available.

    Below is a list (based on that schedule) on what dates are free & in brackets, the first scheduled event listed:
    * August 16th: AVAILABLE (2:30pm ET – P&G Gynmastics Championships
    * August 23rd: AVAILABLE (Primetime – P&G Championships)
    * August 30th: AVAILABLE (2:30pm ET – Notre Dame college football)
    * September 5th: International Friendlies
    * September 13th: AVAILABLE (2:30pm ET – The Tour Championship golf)
    * September 20th: AVAILABLE (Nothing scheduled)
    * September 27th: UNAVAILABLE (1pm ET – Ryder Cup golf)

  10. Jeremy says:

    NBC live extra app doesn’t work right half of time. The app would have a grade D. How about Chromecast support? Another example tablet on Android doesn’t allow you to view each way. You would think they want an app as good as watch ESPN. Just look at viewing number on mobile keep going up and up for events.

    With watch ESPN you can watch all shows and games. Why won’t NBC do this? They are hurting soccer as much as helping. Like you can’t watch any of soccer shows during the week.

    Will this change this season?

    • R.O says:

      Techies and under 30 folks, you guys all love that watch app crap.

      Who the heck wants to watch shows and games on a small screen? Ridiculous. Yes I have heat burn with this. I don’t understand it.

      Nuts :-(

      • Jeremy says:

        Sometimes you can’t be near a big TV. I work during busy season on game day.

        By the way tech people can be over 30.

  11. Abdirahman says:

    what type of channel is that with no highlights or repeats? here supersport shows at least 6 live pl matches in week for example if there are 6 3pm (uk) time kickoff matches they show it live three matches live, while the other three they show repeates after live matches are over and they also show highl’ts during whole weekend.

  12. Daniel says:

    dammit.again nbc has all these channels avalible and they are not showing all the games.cmon now!!!who is going to be watching bravo or the scifi channel or cnbc or msnbc or usa network at 10am eastern on a saturday???when they could show all the matches.its crap!!!

  13. TheDuke says:

    I would like the complainers to name the sports league whether domestic or international that has over forty percent of their games available on national television. There is only ONE and it is the single largest sports enterprise in this country the National Football League. Basketball broadcasts six to eight games in a week where they play between twenty five and thirty five games in a week. Baseball has six national broadcasts a week and plays around a hundred games a week. Hockey the numbers are very similar to basketball. This is a fifth, sixth or seventh sport in the United States and has almost half their games live to the whole country. NBC/Comcast has chosen not to broadcast all the 10am games because it would dilute the audience on their network that they want people to watch for the ad revenue. When advertisers are setting rates for the EPL they pay attention to the number of people who are watching that match and that channel at that time in previous quarters they do not give a damn how many people would have been watching other games on other channels. The ONDemand system sucked last year I hope they improve it but they are not going to broadcast six games on six networks for August 17th. That is what makes Championship Sunday special. Also friendly reminder the broadcasting six games on six networks would be illegal in the country where these games are played.
