In addition, Peacock – NBCUniversal’s new streaming service – makes its debut as the exclusive home of 175 Premier League matches. Peacock Premium will live stream 12 matches in September. On Saturday, September 19, Peacock Premium features exclusive coverage of all morning Premier League action. All matchdays and windows exclusively on Peacock Premium will feature NBC Sports’ Premier League studio coverage.

    TiVo user on Comcast/Xfinity. Used to record every televised EPL game. We have both Liverpool and Chelsea fans in our family. It was a great joy to spend Saturday mornings watching with everyone. We even setup a new media area in our basement for watch parties. Thanks, NBC for ruining all of that for us. Sure, we get Peacock Premium on Comcast, but we don’t have any Comcast/Xfinity equipment to stream it with – only TiVo Bolt with TiVo mini’s. No Peacock streaming on the TV unless I setup another damned computer – an inconvenience to say the least. No easy replay of games and we’re subject to every propaganda-laced Peacock commercial they want to broadcast. I’ll watch a lot fewer Premiership games, both by choice and by circumstance. Soon will just stop watching NBC and affiliates entirely.

    Boycott this rip-off. They are struggling to find revenue and are deliberately targeting a certain segment of the population to fleece. Don’t buy.

    • Pixie Sweeney

      September 19, 2020 at 5:18 pm

      I’m all for a boycott; can’t afford it anyway! Just took all the fun out of my footie days! I’ve only been reading bad things about it; lots of negative comments that’s for sure! Oh, well, it was nice and enjoyable while it lasted! 🙁

    I’m all in favor of a boycott of Peacock. With NBC Sports Gold, you had all of the TV and streaming games available through the same app. Now with Peacock, you need your NBC Sports app to watch the actual games on TV and the Peacock app to watch whatever the heck Peacock is. And it’s not even on Roku. Besides that, they started putting the best games this month on Peacock. This sucks, and this is not how you grow the game in the US.

  4. LA Toon

    when Gold was introduced only the odd game at the weekends were shown. Then last season NBC decided to add more games to Gold trying to entice more subscribers. Now this season there are even more games streamed for a cost on Peacock. Now on Sunday the 20th September ALL games are on Peacock!! Initially I increased my channel list to include NBC Sports, which cost me more money and now I am being told I need to pay another $5 a month. La Liga is looking good especially when the big six cartel put pressure on the PL to stop the Newcastle take over. The game is corrupt.

    • Pixie Sweeney

      September 14, 2020 at 6:30 pm

      I noticed that about Gold last season, but at least most of them were on channels I already had. When I started watching back in 2010, the matches that I watched were on ESPN. I was happy when they went to NBC and they added more of them. All the NBC affiliates are in my cable package, which includes the internet and my landline. I pay $166 a month to my ISP. I think they call that move of trying to get more money for what you were already watching…..extortion! I’ll just have to be happy with what I can get and watch the Match of the Day on the BBC iPlayer for the highlights of the rest. 🙁

      With all these big early-season games being broadcast only on Peacock, I can’t help but get the sense that the Comcast bigwigs have decided to sacrifice the Premier League at the altar as a desperate attempt to get subscribers. It’s a business decision, but that doesn’t mean we have to be happy about it (and I say that as someone who subscribed to Peacock for the year).

  5. Pixie Sweeney

    September 12, 2020 at 8:32 am

    Now I find out that The Men in Blazers are not where I can watch either! On a fixed retired income, I have what I have and nothing extra. One of the simple pleasures is slowly ebbing away. No thanks, I’ll just watch what is on the channels I can get already and try to be happy with it the way it is ending up. So sad!

  6. David the Yank

    Game times changed (eg west ham v Newcastle and arsenal v West ham) to allow UK to televise all September matches now.

    Christopher – any word on Premier League Productions shows on Peacock? Not seeing anything on the Peacock side. Wonder if COVID and very shot offseason has halted PL News. FPL Show, etc or if NBC is just not getting them up on the site yet. There’s enough content there that they could add the Premier League as a “channel” inside Peacock, like the have with SNL, Sky News, etc.

    • Christopher Harris

      September 8, 2020 at 10:18 am

      I have a message in to NBC Sports to find out. No answer yet, but I’ll post a new article as soon as I have more details.

    Just saw the press release (and updates here) indicating that Chelsea-Liverpool and Liverpool-Arsenal were also both moved exclusively to Peacock.

    There are going to be a lot of angry fans who won’t be expecting this! (Especially if Peacock still isn’t available on Roku.) Surely it’s a gamble to get more people to sign up with Peacock, but that’s a pretty hard sell–and thus feels like kind of a garbage move–when so many viewers won’t even be able to watch these games on their TVs even after paying extra for them.

    • Jesus

      September 5, 2020 at 3:32 pm

      I think the reason they are putting these high profile games on Peacock only is to try to force people to subscribe to Peacock. I wonder how subscriptions to Peacock will compare to Sports Gold. I predict it will be fewer because of Roku and Amazon devices are not supported.

  10. Jesus

    September 4, 2020 at 10:10 am

    If NBC Sports wants people to subscribe to Peacock then it makes no sense that they are not able to get Peacock on Roku or Amazon Prime. They are missing out on possible subscribers.

      Hey Christopher,
      Is there any news about premier league tv deal in the USA?
      Is NBC is going to renew or ESPN or other media companies to get that tv deal after 2022 and beyond?

  12. Anthony

    September 2, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    Talk all you want about NBC, but NBC and beIN sport are now the only networks that shows European soccer on cable or over the air TV on any kind of consistent basis. Bundesliga, Serie A don’t get regular time on real TV on ESPN, and Premier League won’t get it either if they leave NBC.

    • Eddie

      September 3, 2020 at 8:50 am

      Who going to bid the premier league tv rights for the USA after 2022?

  13. alex

    right on brother
    greedy thieves they are

    Remember when NBC first came with the EPL , announcing all games for free no extras fees, ha ha what a joke.
    Peacock , just like ESPN+ , is a scheme to milk the viewers hard earned money.
    Not an extra penny for these greedy organizations, plenty of free streams on line to watch every game.

  15. Christopher Harris

    Arlo White reported last night that the Spurs-Everton game has been moved from NBCSN to Peacock, fyi, on opening Sunday.

    • Ed Poon

      September 2, 2020 at 5:26 pm

      Ridiculous. What will be on Sunday at 1130 on NBCSN?

          NBC needs to sell the Premier League now. They are doing it a disservice by all counts. Id be ok if they had all the matches available on Peacock Live however the way they are doing the broadcasts it makes me think that NBC is trying to ruin soccer for everyone here in America.

    • Scott

      September 6, 2020 at 10:43 am

      Nice, look I will pay, but the casual fan likely won’t. In the end, they are harming their own product.

  16. David

    September 2, 2020 at 12:07 am

    The inability to record Peacock games is unconscionable, particularly when they are showing two or more games at the same time. Then to have to wait until the evening to watch them is mind-bogglingly stupid. Are NBC trying to cannibalize their audience?

    • nosferatu

      September 2, 2020 at 12:17 am

      I have to hope that replays of those Peacock-only games, like most Gold games last year, will be available fairly soon after they end.

      The question then becomes why replays of televised games are delayed so long for people who actually subscribe to a cable package with NBCSN. I understand holding them off for Peacock people, but these replays should be up soon after they end on the NBC Sports app for people who can log in and watch with credentials.

      • Christopher Harris

        September 2, 2020 at 7:42 am

        The reason why the games are only available on replay after 9PM ET is due to a Premier League policy, so it’s not NBC’s fault. I’m sure NBC would prefer to have the games available on-demand much sooner if they were allowed to.

        • nosferatu

          September 2, 2020 at 1:47 pm

          That’s interesting–but only for games that are actually televised (and not the ones streamed on Gold/Peacock)? I feel like this changed a couple years ago, but I could be wrong. Feels like a real disservice to have this policy globally where fans in the U.S., for example, might have to get up at 4:30 a.m. for a game, or where weekday games aren’t in the evening but in the middle of typical work hours.

          I suppose I’m just particularly annoyed by this since my DVR doesn’t always work (primarily for Premier League games, even though we record a lot of other crap to watch at night), but that’s Spectrum’s fault, not NBC’s or the PL’s.

    well, I guess I’ll be watching more Bundesliga and Championship on Espn +

    • Donald Duck

      September 1, 2020 at 9:47 pm

      Luckily enough not only do we get Bundesliga but I get Ajax from my Dutch league. EPL until they sort Peacock out will not be watched on my TV. Ill still get my fill of Premier league teams when i watch Champions and Europa league matches since CBS is run by component people unlike NBC.

    The above is showing Sling Blue for NBC broadcasts which I don’t believe is accurate.

    • Christopher Harris

      September 1, 2020 at 10:03 am

      Live local programming from FOX and NBC are available in select Designated Market Areas (DMAs) via Sling Blue.

    I see they are already stroking peacock.

  20. Edward

    September 1, 2020 at 12:07 am

    any insight as to why they are returning to USA instead of CNBC? will there be a replacement for Kyle Martino? what does NBCSN plan to show on 9/19 to go up against PL on Peacock?

    • Dstorm

      September 1, 2020 at 2:43 am

      9/19 = Tour de France

    • Christopher Harris

      September 1, 2020 at 9:00 am

      According to my sources, it looks like Tim Howard is going to fill in now and again for Kyle Martino but not on a permanent basis (at least not at this time).

      • Stevek

        September 1, 2020 at 10:29 am

        do you think there’s a chance Kyle was poached by CBS so that there’s an American presence on their coverage moving forward?

        • Christopher Harris

          September 1, 2020 at 10:44 am

          It’s quite possible, but I doubt it. If I had to guess, I think Kyle may be taking a break for a while before he returns to the airwaves.

      • Scott

        September 6, 2020 at 10:40 am

        God Tim Howard sucks.

  21. Ivan

    August 31, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    NBC is moving in the direction of hiding a good portion of games behind an online paywall.

    Some of us are moving in the direction of showing the greedy corps a middle finger so it’s all good.

    I have a couple of good Peacock puns lined up, but this probably isn’t the place.

  22. Donald Duck

    August 31, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    WTF Chelsea vs Liverpool is going to be on USA and not NBC. What the hell is NBC doing. They took the (Best) most valuable league in the world and said hey we can even screw this up more than what we have in the past.

    • Jeff

      September 1, 2020 at 12:25 am

      The game is too early for ‘big’ NBC to air – since it’s before 12pm ET, they would need to get local affiliates to clear schedule time and that’s easier said than done). Meanwhile, NBCSN will be showing the final stage of the Tour de France and that can’t be bumped for obvious reasons.

      • Yespage

        September 1, 2020 at 9:10 am

        That is a good catch! Le Tour is a bit off schedule this year, and not usually a reason for bumped EPL programming. I think we might have a better feel for how NBC is going to handle EPL content in October with the next programming slate.

        • Eddie

          September 1, 2020 at 10:09 am

          What about French open tennis. will this impact the premier league on tv of NBC nbcsn coverage?

  23. Karlos

    August 31, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Too bad. Gotta pay the Peacock for games in addition to NBCSN. What a ripoff!

  24. Pixie Sweeney

    August 31, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    I think it’s awful that a lot of the Premier League matches that I enjoyed over the years are now on a channel that you have to pay to watch! I pay too much already for my Cox bundle (phone, internet and cable). I had an awful feeling that when they talked about Peacock that it was yet another ploy to have people spend more money! Not interested in that, so I will have to settle for the ones that I can watch. (Sad face!)

    • Jeff

      September 1, 2020 at 12:28 am

      Pretty sure Peacock Premium is free for Cox subscribers such as yourself. As such, you should be able to access the Peacock exclusive games at no additional cost.

      • Dstorm

        September 1, 2020 at 2:38 am

        It’s actually free for Comcast customers (with Xfinity Flex) – not Cox

          September 1, 2020 at 3:33 pm

          Nope, it’s free (no extra cost) for Cox (and Comcast).

          • Pixie Sweeney

            October 5, 2020 at 4:00 pm

            Well, I have Cox, but not the Contour, as it is more money out of pocket for me. I already have the Cox bundle (internet, phone and cable). Thanks but no thanks!

    Did the schedule include the Spanish rights? I didn’t see Universo or Telemundo on the lists.
