NBC has extended its already long-standing broadcast partnership deal with the Premier League until 2028 after signing a six year new deal. This contract will see NBC provide coverage of all 380 Premier League games each season, and coverage will be provided across NBCUniversal's family of networks, including NBC, USA Network, CNBC, nbcsports. com, Peacock, Telemundo, Universo, and other corresponding platforms.
NBC Sports will provide coverage of 57 Women’s Soccer League (WSL) matches over the course of the 2021/22 season for fans based in the United States. This deal, which was secured with the English FA via Atalanta Media, will see NBC cover the WSL with two games shown directly on NBC while the other 55 matches will be distributed among NBCSN, CNBC, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
NBC Sports has acquired multi-platform rights, making it the exclusive EPL broadcaster in USA. Both live and repeat coverage will be available on its family of TV channels. The majority of Premier League games on television will be aired on NBCSN, with other matches allocated to flagship network NBC and also CNBC—all in English language. The rest of the games will be brought to viewers by NBC Sports online and mobile apps, live and on demand. Some key fixtures may be overflown to NBC's entertainment channels when no slots are available on its sports-dedicated networks—for example, on the last match day when all games are usually played simultaneously. Throughout the Premier League season, Spanish-language coverage will be provided by Telemundo, Universo and their respective streaming services. Game highlights, previews, post-match analysis and magazine shows will be produced by NBC Sports as well to complement their full match coverage.
Spanish-language network Telemundo Deportes has acquired bilingual media rights to the Liga MX matches of Club Deportivo Chivas de Guadalajara. The broadcaster will show all Chivas home games in both English- and Spanish-language across its platforms in USA—including television and streaming services. In addition to the matches, coverage will comprise pregame, halftime and postgame shows on Universo. Telemundo’s multi-year deal also includes live matches from youth club Cantera Rojiblanca.
NBC Sports will show a minimum of 50 FA Women’s Soccer League matches during the 2020-21 season in USA, following a multi-platform deal with the English FA facilitated by women’s football company Atalanta Media. The WSL on NBC Sports will be aired on television by NBC Sports Network, as well as online via the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com. While some matches will be available exclusively for streaming, fans in USA can expect to watch more than a dozen games on TV on NBCSN.
