NBCUniversal (CMCSA), the parent company of NBC Sports, announced it will be offering a direct to consumer streaming package consisting of 130 live Premier League games, for just $50. Subscribers of the “Premier League Pass” will not need to be cable subscribers, but hardcore fans will still want to keep their cable subscription. NBCUniversal plans on continuing to show games on its broadcast network and on the NBCSN & CNBC cable channels.
Fan Marino says: Read the fine print. “Package will feature at least 3 games per club.” I’m trying to follow my squad as they pursue a title. I need ALL of their games, not a variety pack.
Howie Long-Short opines: Agreed. That’s a pretty penny for garbage.
