NBC Sports will this week launch four new shows online that will expand the amount of coverage the broadcaster provides the number one English-language soccer league in the United States.

The four new shows will be available via NBC Sports App and NBCSports.com, and will be must-watch for hardcore supporters of Premier League clubs.

For years, arguably the two most eagerly anticipated soccer shows on US television were the Premier League Review Show and Premier League Preview Show. In addition to both shows, which originated from IMG/Premier League Productions, there’ll be two more from Premier League Productions — one which focuses on Fantasy Premier League and the other featuring daily news from the Premier League.

Here are the four new shows on the NBC Sports App:

Premier League News – Available Monday through Friday, Premier League News includes the biggest stories from around the Premier League, and regular live stories from Premier League reporters around the UK.

Premier League Fantasy – Available on Thursdays, Fantasy Premier League is a fantasy team manager’s best friend, providing the latest inside information, tips and predictions based on the Premier League’s global online fantasy game. Presented by James Richardson of The Guardian’s Football Weekly fame, the show takes a look back at the previous week’s points haul and discusses where the value lies in the coming match week.

Premier League Preview – Available on Fridays, Premier League Preview is a comprehensive look ahead to the weekend’s matches, in a creative, fast-moving style. It also includes key comments from the Friday media conferences.

Premier League Review – Available following the final Sunday match and on Monday match-days, Premier League Review includes statistical and tactical information, and reflects on what headlines are in the Sunday papers, on the Internet and across social media. On Sundays, the program will also visit the grounds to provide the view from the terraces. When there is no Monday match, the Sunday review completes the round-up of the weekend’s action. Following each of the 18 Monday matches, the Monday iteration of the show offers the final word on the entire weekend round of fixtures, and includes thoughts and views from Premier League supporters.

NBC Sports App is NBC Sports Group’s live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs. The above shows will also be available via NBCSports.com.

In addition to the four new shows from Premier League Productions that will be made available via the NBC Sports App, NBC Sports has shared more details about other upcoming digital programs:

PREMIER LEAGUE SHORTS: Last week, NBC Sports Digital introduced Premier League Shorts, a short-form, digital-exclusive video series that gives fans access to the biggest names in the Premier League. This week’s episode, available on Friday, focuses on the rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, and features interviews with Eidur Gudjohnsen, one of the few players to have played for both men, Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta, Graham Hunter, author of BARCA: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World, and more.

In the first episode, BBC Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker speaks with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp about his first full season at Anfield, the Reds’ new style of play, and Europe’s future in international play. Click here to view the episode.

Published during Premier League match-weeks, the episodes will be hosted by Lineker or the BBC’s Gabby Logan. Premier League Shorts, part of the NBC Sports Digital Shorts collection of short-form digital video franchises, is produced by Goalhanger Films and the BBC.

GOAL RUSH: NBC Sports Digital offers fans the Premier League’s exciting new Goal Rush product each week via the NBC Sports app, on NBCSports.com, and beginning this Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET, on the Premier League Extra Time package.

During most multi-match windows, Goal Rush will provide the most compelling action in real time and on replay so viewers won’t miss a single score or key play. Premier League host John Dykes hosts the program, which will focus on Arsenal v. Southampton this week, and feature live look-ins on action at all the grounds.
