NBC announces USA EPL coverage for next season!

1

Fox Soccer is dead! For us American Chelsea fans, get ready for some amazing NBC coverage! Favorite highlights: • All 380 game will be available live. • Game Cut-Downs -- NBC Sports Network will air a two-hour show Monday nights featuring cut-down versions of Manchester United and Manchester City matches. On Tuesdays the network will feature Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham matches. • The network said any game not designated for an NBCU channel will be available on Premier League Extra Time, which is similar to MLB's Extra Innings Package. (There is no charge to customers whose cable systems have NBC Sports Network.) All games will also be streamed live on NBC Sports Live Extra, though most consumers will need to authenticate that service.

Good guy Mourinho

NBC Universal is Frontrunner for USA EPL rights starting in August 2013

via EPLTalk Interesting news today regarding the US media rights to the EPL starting next year (coverage: 2013-16). The reported bid from NBC is $83M! This is great news for Chelsea as the increase in TV rights from Fox's $23M to NBC's $83M would amount to a cool extra $3M yearly if the $60M increase is allocated evenly among the 20 EPL teams. What this means to us American Chelsea fans is unknown. NBC has many networks, including their own "Sports Network" which is supposed to air NHL... :( If NBC plays their cards right, we could see HD coverage of many weekend games on multiple channels! It's unknown if NBC would stream games over the internet like Fox has done with FoxSoccer2Go.. but NBC does have an joint ownership in Hulu that might be the perfect venue for streaming of games. As for now, we might as well keep our expectations low and expect Fox Soccer Channel-like coverage. Let's just hope NBC hires Michael Ballack and Alexi Lalas. :)

Would you take Mourinho back? I personally loved him as the man heading the Chelsea war machine into battle..
