NBCSN’s launch of Premier League Breakaway has been a hit and a miss according to soccer fans in the US, but one consensus that seems to be unanimous is this: Rebecca Lowe, NO SPOILERS!
NBC Sports launched Premier League Breakaway today to give soccer fans a chance to see live and slightly delayed highlights of all of the action from 8 games across England being played from 10am-Noon ET.
It’s one of the rare days when all 20 teams are playing on the same day in England, so what’s the reaction been like so far? Take a look at the comments below from World Soccer Talk readers on the website and social media.
World Soccer Talk comment from reader Smokey Bacon:
“One thing is for sure. No restroom break for Rebecca!
Can’t wait to see Mustoe and Martino’s half time analysis of all eight games. I think we may get to see Kyle Martino cry!”
World Soccer Talk comment from jtm371:
“Breakaway has the feel of New Coke. Might have to run out and get some Ritalin to get thru breakaway, WOW”
