You also have to have the streaming package to get "every game live". We will see if DTV will be a part of that. Right now, only 4 providers have announced they are part of that.
For the second time in this thread...
That is not what NBC's press release said. They clearly stated:
"Games not aired on a designated NBCUniversal channel will be made available to distributors via Premier League Extra Time, a package of overflow television channels available at no extra cost for each of their customers who receives NBC Sports Network;"
OVERFLOW TELEVISION CHANNELS AVAILABLE AT NO EXTRA COST.
I will be very surprised if D* does not make these games available, as NBC is not charging for their carriage.
Also, it will be less complicated and probably less costly for D* to just offer those games in the 480's, than it would be to develop the infrastructure necessary ( subscriber authentication, passwords, etc, etc. ) for it's customers to access the streaming feeds.
Fog627 wrote about his communication with D* about Premier League Extra Time. I am not surprised they had no definitive answer for him. NBC only announced their plans 24 hours before.
And before people start bashing me as a fan boy, trust me, if they do not offer these matches, I'll be the first to jump down their throats.
