I really hope NBC streams all games. They do it with other stuff so I would assume they will stick to their word and stream all BPL matches.

That said, Ive given Cox one season to get BEIN Sport, if they dont have it by next season... I'm gonna get DirecTV and I really dont want to do a dish..


I switched to DirecTV in September (so I could have BeIN), and I couldn't be happier.

People are really hung up on that "it goes out when it drizzles" nonsense.

ESPN and NBC wouldn't put up with their mediocre analysis


ESPN had Michael Ballack for the Euro 2012, I'm pretty sure they put up with subpar analysis.

Ballack was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

Yeah, I liked Ballack's commentary. He was just some times struggling with his English.

I'm excited for the NBC takeover. I get all of the NBC channels in HD. Fox Soccer I do not. Thanks Comcast.

Which made it even better. He knew what he was talking about, but had trouble articulating it at times.

The others, no fricking idea, and couldn't shut up.

His facial expressions, listening to their bs, were absolutely fantastic.

I think that Jorge Ramos has been the victim of some similar criticism. I've liked him the few times they have brought him over from Deportes.

IMO, ESPN has done a great job finding interesting analysts. I really liked Roberto Martinez, and while FSC cuts from the SKY feed to matchday, ESPN just lets Darke quiz el Macca.

is very good, and loved in England.

DiMatteo was good the other day, and I get a kick out of seeing lil' Albert (but his pronunciation must improve, as must DiMatteo's).

I've really had no problems with direct tv reception either aside from a couple of hours during one blizzard in the 8 or so months I've had it.

However, I would prefer to have Time Warner back now that they have BeIN because they're much better than Direct TV in the NY area for the free Spanish package with ESPN Deportes ect and cheap Italian RAI option for soccer coverage.

I will really miss the Premiere League Review Show. FSC does a fantastic job with that every week. I hope NBC offers something similar.

I just hope in time NBC creates a Soccer devoted channel though.

I'm not too sure that this is a product of FSC, but rather something produced in England and just shown on FSC. I could be wrong though.

FSC is shite. I can't wait for it to go to NBC... There's no way it could get worse than this. Gus Johnson commentating has made it an absolute low.

I will say this, Gus johnson is absolutely amazing for those games that you are just half watching while you study or read... anytime a team gets even remotely close to a goal scoring opportunity his voice skyrockets so you know when to look at the TV

Right on the money. Otherwise, he is pretty terrible.
