Tweets from Jonathan Tannenwald (@thegoalkeeper) concerning NBC’s future coverage of EPL:
- Arlo White is moving back to England. Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux will be NBC’s lead color analysts. Saturday: 7 am and 10 am on NBCSN, 12:30 on NBC, Sunday: 8 am on NBCSN, 11 am on NBCSN and Telemundo. Midweek: 2:30 on NBCSN. All times ET.
- Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe will be studio analysts in Stamford, Conn., alongside host Rebecca Lowe. Gary Lineker will be a “special contributor” and occasionally host on-site studio coverage.
- All 380 games will be live on TV with pregame and postgame studio coverage and streamed through the NBC Sports Extra app.
- 20 games on NBC, 154 on NBCSN, 22 on other NBCUniversal channels, 184 on Premier League Extra time, 10 on Telemundo, 66 on mun2.
- A two-hour show Mondays with condensed Man United and City games from that weekend and a two-hour show Tuesdays with condensed matches of Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham. Fans of parity will surely enjoy. “Modeled after the BBC show of the same name.” Re-aired Sunday mornings, then a 90-minute MOTD2 (yes, with that name) Sunday night.
- “A two-hour show featuring extended highlights with the natural calls of every game on Saturday.” The show’s name? Match Of The Day.
- “All games not aired on a designated NBCUniversal channel will be made available to distributors on Premier League Extra Time a package of overflow channels available at no extra cost” for anyone who has NBC Sports Network, or so it says.
“If you’re a hockey fan, and you don’t like Zach Parise, you’re not a real hockey fan,”
Screw you, NBC. You are all a bunch of biased douchebags. I really hope you guys aren’t reporting the playoffs next year, because you don’t deserve it. You’ve done nothing but talk massive shit about the Flyers throughout the playoffs. I hate you guys.
