This is huge for both NBC Sports and soccer in the US. And it potentially means a better timeslot for the NHL on the network.

Where'd you go to school? NBCS has TV deals for college hoops with the Atlantic 10 (shared with ESPN & CBS) and the Colonial Athletic Association.

They are also negotiating with the Big East.

In an interview Sunday night with SI.com, NBC Chairman Mark Lazarus said NBC Sports Network will be the primary carrier of EPL games and that EPL fans will have access to every game on the schedule through an NBC platform. "It will not be unlike the Olympics where you saw programming on CNBC, Bravo, USA or MSNBC," Lazarus said. "We are working to make it a consistent schedule so fans know exactly where to find games. But the Premier League fan will be able to get to every game live."
EPL clubs play 38 league matches over a 41-week period from August to May. The league has six traditional weekly broadcast windows, including three on Saturday, two on Sunday and one on Monday. According to Lazarus, broadcasts on those windows add up to about 200 games per season. Lazarus said the remaining 180 games will be made available "digitally or through some sort of arrangement with MVPDs (multichannel video programming distributors) on some sort of pay television package."
This might end up being pretty awesome.

As a fan of the league, this is pretty exciting! I will be able to follow every game, not just the matches against the "big four"

Hopefully they'll show more than just Manure, Chelski and Citeh matches.

It's been pretty beaten to death that they will, since they will show as many games as Fox Soccer and ESPN combine to show and then some.

They won't get to set the schedule anyways. The way the EPL works are most games are at 10am (New York time) on Saturday except for the tv (in UK) and the sunday matches for teams who play in the Europa league. The only choice NBC will have to make are the 10 am match, the others are basically set by Sky and BT (the British broadcasters next season) and which matches they want.

Your weekly EPL schedule looks like this:

SATURDAY:
8:45 AM ET (one game)
11:00 AM ET (most games)
1:30 PT ET (one game)

SUNDAY:
8:30 AM ET (one game)
11 AM ET (one game)

MONDAY:
3 PM ET (one game)

Towards the end of the season, they do two games a week:
SATURDAY
8:45 AM ET (one game)
11:00 AM ET (most games)
1:30 PT ET (one game)

WEDNESDAY
10 AM ET (one game)
12:30 PT ET (most games)
2:45 PT ET (one game)


So, as you can see, NBC can just move their NHL broadcasts to 3:30 pm ET on Saturday afternoon, and 1 pm on Sunday afternoons and have zero conflicts.

That can't be right, there's no games that early on Wednesdays. Does this contract include the FA cup?

The only weekday EPL games that start prior to 2:45 PM ET are the ones on Boxing Day and New Year's Day. I don't believe this contract includes the FA cup, which in any case has more or less an identic system with no weekday games starting prior to 2:15 PM ET. I believe the Wednesday KevFu refers to is this year's Boxing Day.

Edit: In addition to what KevFu listed Sundays have another timeslot at 10 AM ET for teams playing in the Europa League the preceding Thursday.

You are correct. Fox still has the FA Cup til 2018 or some year deep into the future.

Ah, I just hit forward on the fixtures list until I saw the midweek games. So, yeah, probably boxing day.


But it's THE END TIMES that matter. As you can see: After 3:30 pm or 1:00 pm no conflicts!

I'll be sold if they tape-delay games. I've been trying to follow some of the European leagues but I'm not crazy about waking up at 6 in the morning on Saturday to do it.

It's gotta be tape-delayed games.

If EPL is being taken off Fox Soccer? If so then that is awesome so I don't have to hear that wonderful half team again.

Also I wonder what would happen to beIN Sports (A channel which shows a lot Ligue 1, La Liga, Serie A, Capital One, and FA games) will do, because if EPL is taken off Fox then they will have to replace it with other leagues, right?

This could actually be okay because it's fairly easy to go on the internet and not see the scores of EPL games unlike say NFL or MLB games.

If you're a fan of one of the bottom 5-10 in America this is good news.

Bite your tongue. The A-10 is, was, and always has been quite legit. It was the myth ESPN put forth that unless your conference had football, you were JV that led to their down years.

But the A-10 is at worst Conference #7 in college hoops, and considering how godawful the Pac-12 has been, and how little depth the ACC has had over the last few years, you can argue they're #5.

Four NCAA bids last year. In the last decade, 11 of their 16 members have made the NCAA Tournament and about 9 of 16 have NCAA wins. Three Final Fours, about Nine Elite Eight appearances or so.

Three ranked teams in the preseason polls this year. Look how deep they are this season: Xavier, who's been to about 20 of the past 25 tourneys is picked NINTH. The defending champ is picked 11th.

My point is there aren't many fans of the teams in the A-10. They may be good teams but they're not Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky or Kansas or even a decent school in a name conference like Texas A&M or Michigan.

I don't know if you're counting Butler in their Final Four appearances but they just joined from the Horizon League.

6 of the 16 schools have enrollments of 7,900 or less. 8 are at 11,000 or less.

I'm sorry but you're just not going to have many people excited to watch a Fordham vs LaSalle game or a Butler vs UNC Charlotte game.
