    I agree with David, it was really noticeable on Friday night how much better the coverage was than the usual NBC fare. I had to check to confirm I was watching NBC rather than when I stream Sky off my laptop. If you follow F1 you’ll have noticed how much better the Sky coverage is this year compared to the past few years on American TV.

    It was fascinating to see all of the Sky Sports coverage on Friday Night Football during the NBC pregame show. They even had Gary Neville & Carragher holding Sky Sports microphones.

    My DREAM scenario, now that Comcast has acquired Sky, is that Comcast/Sky dispenses with the absurdity of Rebecca Lowe & the various Robbies + Kyle doing half baked pseudo analysis from America, and, rather just gives us the extraordinary Sky coverage with Neville et al week after week. Americans have NO IDEA how much better Sky post-match analysis is compared to the joke that is the NBC version.

    Comcast/NBC/Sky: MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Exactly, Azer. People can have different tastes when it comes to preferring a particular style of commenting or production and that doesn’t mean that anyone’s view is wrong.

    It’s not just the in-game commercials that are annoying, there’s a lot more. A player receives a red card and NBC Sports has to write an entire sentence on the screen to inform the viewers for the rest of the game. Seriously, who does that? It’s childish. They’re also running headlines on the screen. Why? I noticed a couple of times, a player gives a post match interview on the field and Rebecca Lowe says ”we’ll come back to it”. A substitution takes place and we get the update seconds later. Before every game there’s a headline on the screen telling us ”this game is only authorized for viewing in the USA” What’s up with that? Who cares? I was recently trying to watch a game on NBC Sports Live Extra and the service is from another century. Fox Sports GO is much better. I understand I’m in the minority when it comes to the EPL on NBC. Oh well so be it. We can agree to disagree.

    Am I the only one who would like to see the EPL move to a different network? The studio talent with Rebecca Lowe is OK. The production is beyond terrible, what other network in the world runs commercials on the screen during a live game? I don’t want to see a Progressive Insurance or Lexus commercial when I am watching a game. Why isn’t NBC Sports using the original EPL production from IMG, they’re paying for it.

      The in-game commercial graphics are a bit annoying but I like their studio show and the production is generally very good. I like NBC; if the rights switch to Fox or ABC we’ll not be better served.

      I’m more annoyed with the size of their score/time graphics rather than the advertisements. So large and intrusive you have to make a conscious effort not to have your eyes diverted to it all the time. They should just use the graphics provided from the world feed as all other leagues do instead of using in house graphics to keep consistent with other sports they cover (almost identical to their NHL graphics).

    Can’t believe Arlo isn’t doing the first two London derbies……darting north from Stamford Bridge on his motorbike at the final whistle.

    What a feast (especially the three derbies on Sunday)!
