If you’ve watched a Premier League match on NBC Sports Live Extra during the past 18 months, you may have noticed the ‘Tactical Cam’ option that’s available in the top right corner of the window for select matches. After opening the tactical cam window, the feature gives you the opportunity to watch the match from a completely different camera angle than the main TV/Live Extra feed.
Previously, the tactical cam has been available for select matches. But beginning this weekend, NBC Sports will be ramping up their tactical cam offering by including it in more games than ever before — in Saturday’s Manchester City vs. Swansea game (10am ET) as well as Monday’s Leicester-Chelsea match (3pm ET).
According to NBC Sports Group, there’s the possibility of the tactical cam being added for more games in the future. The number of matches featuring the “Tactical Cam” will be determined on a week-by-week basis.
The tactical cam is a high-sideline camera meant to show all 22 players on the pitch at the same time, enabling fans to see formations and evaluate each team’s attacking and defending tactics as the game progresses.
The “Tactical Cam” will be available in both the NBC Sports Live Extra desktop and mobile & tablet presentations of the game. This second screen application can be viewed in a Picture-in-Picture presentation on desktop where the user has the option of utilizing the “Tactical Cam” as a pop-up in the main screen while following the main coverage in a smaller viewing window. On a mobile device or tablet, “Tactical Cam” can be viewed as a separate stream to complement the traditional broadcast view.
