Premier League Pass FAQ: NBC’s replacement for Premier League Extra Time

With NBC Sports’ launch of Premier League Pass, soccer fans will no longer be able to get “every game, every weekend, all season long” of the Premier League unless they’re willing to pay extra.

The surprising change means that the Premier League will no longer be as accessible as what we’re accustomed to. But what does the Premier League Pass mean for you, and how will it change your viewing habits? We’ve compiled all of your questions from our comments section and compiled them into one page below, along with the answers.

Q: What is Premier League Pass?

A: Premier League Pass is a brand-new paid streaming service that will allow soccer fans to watch all of the Premier League games that are not shown on television. So on a typical Premier League weekend, subscribers will be able to watch three games that are available exclusively via the new service. In total, there’ll be 130 games available season-long.

Previously, those three EPL games per weekend (typically the 10am-Noon ET games that were not on NBCSN, CNBC or USA) were shown exclusively via Premier League Extra Time (on TV) and NBC Sports App (via streaming with authentication). With the launch of Premier League Pass digital service, it means the end of the Premier League Extra Time channels that were available by many TV providers as extra channels on DIRECTV, DISH, Time Warner and others. It also means that those three games will no longer be available via the NBC Sports App.

Q: How much of the season will those 130 games encompass, and which clubs will be featured on Premier League Pass?

A: The 130 games available exclusively via Premier League Pass represents 34% of the games played during an entire season. Every single club in the Premier League will be featured a minimum of three times. However, for many clubs in the Premier League, 40-60% of their games could be available exclusively via Premier League Pass.

Q: Which teams will be featured most often?

A: The clubs in the bottom half of the Premier League table would be featured most prominently on Premier League Pass, so they will most likely include many games from West Ham, Leicester, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Stoke City, Watford, Huddersfield Town, Brighton, Southampton and Everton.

The clubs that will be featured the least (but still a minimum of three games per season) are Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal.
