Just pray they don't run commercials in the middle of games like in the Olympics
I can't imagine that would be part of their agreement with EPL either.
that's about as much as an American soccer fan could hope for. Games on "free" cable channels, original programming, free internet streaming. That's quite a commitment.
I also hear John Hammond will not be calling games.
EDIT: For those who used to see games on ESPN3 via their Internet provider without having cable, it's "game over". Assuming Time Warner comes on-board, I will try to access via my folks' Time Warner account if possible.
EDIT2: There will be more games on free TV, since FOX hardly ever showed any and in my market, the local FOX station also carries Packer games and guess who won that battle?
As far as I can tell, there is not a tie into a cable provider like ESPN3.
provider, like the WatchESPN and March Madness apps on Android/iOS are tied to a cable provider. I hope I am wrong.
Otherwise why bother buying the extra package to include those channels. A boy living in London can dream...
Hard to believe, but the US gets far more games than we do here.
... as NBC Sports Extra so I'm not sure how much of this I'll see.
Isn't a channel per se, it's an app for phones and tables (and a web based solution for computers) that is available to certain cable providers, such as Verizon FIOS and Comcast.
It's part of the TV Everywhere deal. If you don't have one of those providers, it will happen sooner rather than later as NBC, ESPN and others push onto this platform.
