    The lack of any real information has me nervous that DTV will not be carrying the channels. That will force me to leave DTV after 14 years.


    NBC alluded to the fact that everyone but Time Warner is poised to have it.

    "Lazarus said that adoption of TV Everywhere is still on the uptake, touting NBC Sports Group’s upcoming deals with AT&T’s U-verse TV, Cox Communications, Charter Communications and DirecTV. "

    My understanding is that NBC will be transmitting the BPL games on several of it's channels, just as they were transmitted on Fox Soccer, Fox Soccer plus and ESPN 2.

    If I'm reading this correctly... anybody hear of an ETA for when DirecTV will be included in the list of NBC Sports Live Extra (mobile app) providers?

    Word in various soccer forums is that DirecTV has signed on as a partner with NBC to both show the extra channels and provide access to the app. A number of providers have recently been added to the app, but still no DirecTV. Does anyone have any hard news on this?

    NBC has stated that Directv is on the list of providers carrying both NBC LIve Extra and Extra Time. There is still a couple of weeks to go before I would be concerned.


    "NBC Sports Group said it has secured carriage for its Premier League Extra Time coverage with AT&T U-verse, Cablevision’s Optimum, Comcast’s Xfinity, DirecTV, Dish and Suddenlink."

    "Relative to streaming service, NBC Sports Live Extra, the aforementioned providers, as well as Cox and Verizon FiOS, will make all Premier League games available to their authenticated subscriber bases."

    Furthermore, DirecTV has confirmed that in the very least, they will offer Extra Time. http://support.directv.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4110/session/L3RpbWUvMTM3NTM4MTUzMC9zaWQvX1JBN0ZId2w=

    Am I the only one who can't access the site OR app for this? My WOT goes NUTS on the NBC Sports Live Extra site and Firefox freaks out and shuts off. Then, to get back on it takes forever because of all of the warnings. The app simply doesn't load and gives an error message. What am I doing wrong?

    Winters,...
    App, or Firefox? If just the latter, try Chrome or Safari.

    There is an ad on the NBC Live Extra site that I got suckered into. I didn't look at it quickly and it's spyware. It says to view content, upgrade to a new version of Abobe Flash. it looks legit but the Flash logo isn't quite right. That caused a lot of issues. All better now. Thanks though.

    So, if I wanted to play the NBC Live Extra games on my Flatscreen TV, I'd need a tablet with this app and an HDMI output. Anyone done this? what was the quality like?

    It took me a while to realize that DirecTV offers five additional epl channels as NBC Extra time. Excellent. Currently watching one and recording two others.

    Has anyone tried to watch NBCSLE on an Android device? I just doesn't work for me. I have re-installed it 3 times and it crashes after i select provider.

    Most worthless Android app I have found. I have a Galaxy S4. When I click on the app it usually does nothing. Eventually a message comes up and says it has frozen, would I like to wait, report, or close it. Unbelievable that a major network allows such garbage to be put out with their name on it.

    Galaxy S4 here too. Im able to register and watch maybe 5 minutes of video before the app freezes. I have to go into task manager and kill it. Have since deleted it until NBC gets their act together.

    Sent from Raider Nation on my S4.

    My S3 let me register once, then it goes to a screen with 3 little squares, white and blue. So weird. I have to restart the entire phone after trying to use it... Glad to hear I am not alone, but sad that such a cool thing is wasted by not working.
