Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
One of the main reasons I pay for cable is to watch Premier League games on NBC Sports. I hate this Peacock crap for the following reasons.

1. I don’t want to pay extra
2. Streaming is a pain in the ass
3. Streaming picture quality sucks with my UVerse compared to cable

CBS pulled the same bull shite with their app. ESPN does it with the FA Cup and much more. This crap needs to stop, we are being nickeled and dimed to death. “It’s just 5 bucks a month.” Well it starts to add up.

re: Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
While I don't like it either, especially since they used to offer all the matches with a cable subscription for free, Peacock is actually better than the NBCSports Gold soccer pass we had to buy last season.

Same price(ish) with more content.

That shite they pulled today was fricking cruel.

"Hey! Christian Pulisic is ahead of schedule on his rehab and will be in Chelsea's lineup Monday!"

"But you can only see it on Peacock Premium".

The rights to broadcast these things cost money. I understand the complaint, but with so many chord cutters this is what these netwokrs have to resort to.

4.99 a month with ads.

But to the op point, most of us already pay for cable/satellite to watch each week. With all the other streaming options out there it's just getting silly at this point

re: Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
what sites are y'all using for "alternative" streaming? I think all the sites I used to use have gone the way of the dodo.

re: Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
It does suck, have to either buy the top cable packages are cut the cord and go a la carte.

I pay $50 for ESPN+, $50 for Peacock Premium, $12/month for Netflix, $59/month for internet. Can pretty much watch anything I want. Not sure I could get access to all soccer matches for less so

Suck it up. If it is not worth it to you, don't pay for it. NBC is not a charity or a socialistic organisation. If not enough people buy into the service, they will change their pricing and plan.

If I want a service, I pay for it. But, a number of services such as cable and phone do leave room for pricing negotiations if you are persistent. That is the free market. I am glad to live with both it's many benefits and the much smaller number of problems.

re: Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
Exactly

Free market let’s you talk with your wallet

If you don’t like the service or the price don’t buy it or find other ways to watch the content you want.

People bitch about it but then do nothing about it

Find alternative ways of watching for cheaper

You don’t have to be tech savvy to figure the shite out

re: Damn you NBC and your greedy Peacock crap
I use one of the countless IPTV services out there

There is plenty of details on it in the how to watch thread

In short I get every match from every major league

All NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB and ppv fights
