      I’m getting a bit nervous, leading up to the game I see the score ticker on the bottom of the screen..hope it’s not there during the’s not only distracting but disrespectful to the game being played, what the game isn’t entertaining enough that you need a ticker to keep you occupied?

    Can’t say this enough, thank you NBC, dream come true after many years of waiting!!!

    Saturday: watch Jozy make his Sunderland debut.

    Sunday: watch the Spurs game and see how Paulinho, Chadli, and Soldado do in their first game.

    Monday: watch the new-look City play and cheer on the Boys in Blue.

    My weekend is set because of NBC Sports. Thank you all so much for putting in the hard work and effort to bring us every game of the Premier League this season. It doesn’t go unnoticed.

    EVERY SINGLE game is streamed live on Live Extra? Even the games on NBCSN?

    when will the nbcsports live extra app be added to the apple tv???

  6. patriotsdefense - Aug 16, 2013 at 5:43 PM

    I can’t wait for the XboxLive app. I wonder, will some games be available on demand? ESPN would allow it when they had the EPL. Not all games, but many would remain online for months after.

    30 years too late but I’m glad someone decided to bring the EPL to American tv sets…….

    Completely screwed the 80’s babies…. Soccer would have been bigger.

    Thank You NBC, you guys Rock! Cant thank you enough for making the EPL more accessible to America, and I cannot wait to catch all of the premier league action this season. My weekends are all set.

    MLS has been needing a Match of the Day type highlights show for a long time..
