Every Premier League football match from the 2017/18 season will still be shown live on NBC Sports but now you need their Premier League Pass as well as your US Cable Subscription to stream every match.
NBC Sports is a great way to watch all 380 Premier League games live online, exclusively available in the USA.
NBC Sports’ launch of Premier League Pass, NBC cable subscribers will no longer be able to get all 380 matches from the Premier League unless they’re willing to pay extra. This move by NBC is aiming to entice sports fans unwilling to commit to a cable subscription and is the latest mainstream broadcaster to consider cord-cutting.
The launch of the NBC Premier League Pass will see 130 fixtures streamed through their NBC Sports Gold platform from the start of the 2017/18 season. The pass will cost $50 for the season and will also include access to match replays and additional Premier League content produced by the NBC and by the Premier League itself.
NBC Sports is a USA service (available to American Cable TV subscribers) offering Premier League football as well as MLS, F1, NFL and NHL. They fantastic HD coverage; available in web browser or on popular streaming devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, XBox, Samsung Smart TV plus iPad, iPhone and Android.
NBC Sports show every single match live from the EPL, including Saturday 3pm kick off games not shown by Sky Sports and BT Sport.
In the past NBC has streamed Premier League games not scheduled for TV on its digital platforms. Now the broadcaster is essentially creating a package to monetise the games. Each team will appear on Premier League Pass a minimum of three times next season, however in an effort to protect its cable customer base, the biggest fixtures will be only available on TV.
“We are still going to have all the big matchups like the Manchester derby, Arsenal vs Chelsea, Liverpool vs Man United; all those big matchups still stay on NBC and NBCSN”.
Avid football fans looking for access to all 380 league fixtures will require both a US cable TV service and a subscription to Premier League Pass.
