This is very interesting: I just removed Sports Package because FSC is now moved to Choice Extra . However I find that I am still getting Ch 620 beInSports more than 24hrs after program change. They did remove USN and other channels . Maybe they will get around to it later in the week.

Interesting it takes so long . Usually its pretty fast.

Now I am wondering whether DirecTV would move the future NBC Soccer Channels into the Sports Package .

If you have just the spanish packages you won't get EPL games in HD in english because NBC Sports ain't on any spanish packages. Ofcourse that can change from now til next season but Telemundo and Mun2 is where you will have to watch to get EPL.


I don't trust NBC Sports for any soccer games including EPL too many delays and commercials, but for now i'll have to ask CSR for discount on Sports Pack.

"Delays and commercials?" When was the last time you actually watched a soccer game on NBC? They present the game the same as FOX, ESPN, etc.

IIRC, in the soccer games broadcast at the olympics, NBC Sports inserted commercial breaks during play.

The dedicated Olympic soccer channel did not air commercials during play. I don't recall seeing any commercials during games on the NBC networks (NBC, NBC Sports, MSNBC), but I suppose a random spot could have found its way into a non US team game.

Everything I have read indicates that NBC Sports will NOT interrupt play of EPL games with commercial breaks. They don't do that with their MLS broadcasts, so I'd be shocked if they did it with the EPL games.

What we do know is that they plan to use both the main NBC channel, NBC Sportsnet and then some of their other channels to handle the games. There are a lot of open questions about how NBC will be presenting the EPL next season, but whether we like it or not they now have the exclusive rights and we will just need to sit tight and see what happens.

It has taken them a while, but they are now doing a very solid job presenting the NHL, and there's no reason to think they wont also do a creditable job with the EPL.

I agree they'll probably do a good job with the video of the games, bring us most games on a variety of channels none of which cost $15 a month to subscribe to, show them all in HD and not have any or too many commercials.

I'm worried they'll dredge up 10 or more Americans (some of whom have never called soccer before) to do the commentary off the TV screens instead of contracting English commentators (like ESPN did with Ian Darke) or using the world feed with commentators based at the grounds. But I guess we'll have to wait till August to find out!

I can't provide I quote because I can't remember where I read it, but shortly after they acquired the rights the head of NBC Sports said that they hear clearly from fans that they want the game presented by those from the UK, and they said they hear the message loud and clear and that's the direction they are going.

This is my biggest fear also.. JP Dellacamera is the voice of American soccer. I don't want to hear him do the Manchester Derby.. Just PLEASE NBC don't get the "we know what americans want" attitude and bring in a bunch of former soccer players in to do "expert commentary"..

Here's a reason to be thankful Fox is losing the EPL.

Yes it might sound better but you have to think about how much NBC messes up the Olympics every other year. I think that they will break up the halves in to 10 minute spots so needless to say I think it will not be live.

Everything NBC Sports has said about its planned EPL coverage indicates you are WAY off with your speculation. Every game tape delayed? Really?

OK but just wait till you here the announcers say we have to go to a commercial break. I hope I am wrong. But I hope going forward bein sports gets more live games.

I rather watch soccer games on ESPN or FOX than NBC, too much emphasize on commercials, but then again I have the Spanish package and doesn't carry NBC Sports anyway so no way of knowing how they handle soccer games compared to other sports on the main network.

I have premium package along with fox soccer and I called and was given the 400 series that should be 14.99 for free. So I know that the Spanish networks do a better job and I don't even understand Spanish.
