At half time during the game, there were no commercials. Instead there were the Match Stats from the first half, followed by an interview with a former footballer.
The video quality of the match itself was satisfactory. I didn’t experience any buffering (although it was an on-demand match, not live).
Overall, NBC’s Premier League Pass is a workable streaming package that does a decent job at providing the live and on-demand games, but the rest of the product seems rushed. The promise of more than 1,000 hours of content throughout the season via Premier League Pass is admirable, but the decision by NBC Sports to only provide a portion of the programming from Premier League Productions instead of everything is a disappointment. Having said that, the programming currently offered outside of games is good to have on in the background while you’re working (or studying).
If you really want to watch your teams play when they’re featured on Premier League Pass, go ahead and buy it. But don’t expect to be wowed by the current way that the programming is served up.
