Bio not provided
For the past two or three years I've been able to watch 9 or 10 of the EPL games each weekend on my TV in English between FSC, FSC+ and ESPN, with judicious use of my DVR. This will no longer be the case.
To say the NBC game coverage is staggering and more than expected is just wrong. It's a step back. I'll have to take the money I used to pay for FSC+ and apply it to an internet feed that just isn't the same as watching my 62' behemoth.
Also, I expect we won't be able to watch each match in it's own capsule, as we can with FSC's coverage right now. I can watch most games each weekend without spoiling the result through a ticker or a commentary team giving away results of other games. I'm sure NBC will do away with the ITV-produced international feed of games which presents each game on it's own. I'm not likely to tape a game and watch it if NBC spoils the result.
Will the EPL be more accessible to the masses? Yes. Will the hardcore EPL fan get the same level of coverage on TV that we have now? No.
