NBCU to simulcast Premier League finale for first time

US media company NBCUniversal will broadcast live all 10 matches of the final day of the 2013-14 English Premier League football season – the first time the season-ending games will be aired on network television in the US at the same time.

‘Championship Sunday’ will see games broadcast live simultaneously on 10 different NBCU networks on May 11. Matches will be spread across NBC, Bravo, NBCSN, Syfy, USA, Esquire Network, E! and CNBC. Spanish-language networks Telemundo and mun2 will each broadcast one match.

Channel assignments for the matches will be decided in early May.

The NBC Sports Live Extra platform will offer live streaming of all 10 games on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The majority of these matches will be available via TV Everywhere.

In addition, CNBC will also broadcast a pre-game show and NBC will broadcast a post-game programme. The latter will also be simulcast on NBCSN.
