With NBC’s month of programming in August being sent into a tailspin with its exclusive coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics across all of NBC’s networks, that means that many Premier League games during the first few weeks of the 2016/17 season have been moved to CNBC.
On top of that, some of NBC’s Olympic programming will be on MSNBC.
For Sling Blue customers, neither MSNBC or CNBC are available in the base package, so customers would have to subscribe to additional packages to pick up CNBC and MSNBC in order to not miss out on any Premier League and/or Olympics coverage.
However, the good news is that Sling Blue has added CNBC and MSNBC as free previews to Sling Blue customers through the end of the Olympics at no additional charge. Plus, the channels will be available to new customers via the free 7-day Sling Blue trial.
In addition to CNBC, Sling Blue offers access to NBCSN, NBC, FOX, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2 and many other soccer channels.
That means Sling Blue customers won’t miss any of the televised Premier League games for the month of August.
The preliminary schedule for Premier League matches in August is below. The games featured on CNBC are in bold. It’s likely that more CNBC games will be added soon when the schedule is completely finalized:
