Subscriptions to NBC Sports’ Premier League Pass are now available at $50 per season. For soccer fans in the United States who are used to being able to stream all of the games during a Premier League season via the NBC Sports App, NBC Sports has decided to make 3-4 games per week only accessible via a paid subscription to Premier League Pass.
For fans who are used to watching games via Premier League Extra Time, it’s gone and has been replaced the paid-subscription service Premier League Pass. Unfortunately, Premier League Pass is not available via DIRECTV or any TV providers. It’s only available via streaming from NBCSportsGold.com.
More details are available on the Premier League Pass FAQ, but note that full event replays of the Premier League matches on television (NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, etc.) are not part of this offering.
As of press time, NBC Sports doesn’t plan on offering a free trial to soccer fans. Plus, NBC Sports hasn’t revealed any plans to help bar or pub owners who want to stream Premier League Pass games to supporters groups in establishments across the United States.
Programming on the NBCSportsGold’s Premier League Pass will include:
Exclusive access to 130 Premier League matches live and on-demand – At least three matches per Premier League club will be streamed via Premier League Pass. We’ve estimated how may times each club will be shown on Premier League Pass based on last season’s TV schedule.
Note that while NBC Sports advertises that the Premier League Pass matches will be available on-demand, they add that “on-demand matches [are] subject to per club limitations,” so it’s very probable that on-demand matches for your club won’t be available all the time even with a paid subscription.
