Soccer fans get extended coverage of Sky Sports News on NBCSN

The coronavirus is a serious issue, but soccer fans in the United States will now get more live coverage of Sky Sports News on NBCSN than ever before.

Beginning Monday, NBCSN will extend the live coverage of Sky Sports News on weekdays to between four and six hours as a direct result of needing to fill their programming schedule. With many of the leagues and sporting competitions suspended, NBCSN has a lot more time to fill with live or on-demand programming. And Sky Sports News, being simulcast from the UK, is an ideal fit.

Whether Sky Sports News will have much news to talk about with the leagues and competitions being suspended is another matter entirely.

When NBCSN first started broadcasting Sky Sports News in 2019, the live UK news show was only on for one hour per day.

In addition to Sky Sports News expanding on NBCSN, the network has also lined up a lot of classic matches and other soccer-related programming for the weekend. The soccer-related schedule for the next week is as follows:
