    Any idea if NBC Gold plans to return Sky Sports Soccer Saturday? It’s listed on their website as a program but not coming up. Similarly, do you know if SS News will return? At times it shows in our guide from M- F 11-1 then disappears. We understand bit went away whilst play was suspended. We emailed nbc about both (no reply). Ta!

    Great to have football back. Strange that Arsenal didn’t realize their game @ Man City was for real & not a ‘behind closed doors’ friendly.
    Not sure if I prefer watching with fake crowd noise or. Kinda depends on how loud & annoying the coaches are. Sometimes you get one who just doesn’t shut up.
    Shame about 2 Drury’s in a row but at this moment in time I’ll take it. Better than nothing.

      I would probably rather hear fake crowd noise than 2 hours of the likes of Tony Pulis shouting from the touchline. Some of the other conversations that the mic picks up could be quite interesting. With the dispersed schedule Drury is on about four times a week on the world feed, which I agree is awful, but great to have the game itself back.

    Lee Dixon was an analyst today for Premier League production on camera with Michael Owen and Ian Wright in the studio with host Steve Bower. I watched the game and the analyses, much better then what we’re getting with the Peacock network.

    Really enjoyed the Villa v Sheffield United broadcast, despite the lack of goals. Some people might find the crowd atmosphere sounds cheesy but I found the chanting in the background added to my enjoyment. The Bundesliga broadcasts sound so dead by comparison.

      Perhaps, but this game showed again how poor the Premier League is at using VAR compared to the Bundesliga and other leagues. The goal line technology failed because the cameras were blocked and the VAR ref didn’t give Sheffield the goal despite all the replays showing the ball was miles over the line. The Prem VAR refs are almost completely useless. The ref could have looked at the pitchside monitor and given the goal as well.

      In a way, I feel like it’s appropriate for it to sound that way. We get the entertainment of the game, but the quiet reminds us of what we’re in the midst of. Let’s not pretend the fans are there because they aren’t, for a very good reason, so when they are able to return to the stands we’ll be able to appreciate that and celebrate it fully and properly.

    I signed up for Vidgo to watch the Villa game today based on your suggestion, but I can’t find the game anywhere on there, and looking at their website, I don’t see any option for NBCSN or any other network that might have EPL.

      Vidgo doesn’t include NBCSN, sorry.

      They offer a 7-day free trial, so you can cancel without any penalty.

    Can someone please tell me as an NBC Sports Gold subscriber who doesn’t pay for cable (and therefore doesn’t have access to NBCSN) – where are all the NBC Sports Gold Games???

    There are supposed to be 140 exclusive games, we still have 25% of the season left, so there should be about 30-35 games left? Where are they?

    • Christopher Harris

      June 17, 2020 at 2:48 pm

      Greg, I’d suggest e-mailing support@nbcsportsgold.com and letting them know about it – to see what they say.

        Emailed them on Wednesday still waiting for a response.If/when I get one, I will post it here.

    Arlo.
    Arlo.
    Arlo.
    And more Arlo.

    4 matches out of the 12.
    100 days of silence down the drain.

      I enjoy it when the games are played simultaneously, as this Saturday in the Bundelsliga. If there is one commentator you hate you’re guaranteed to only get him once.

    will the global feed commentators be on site too?
