You’ll probably have to turn to the subscription platform fairly often. So when it comes to ease of access for every game in the season, the differential is going to drop.

NBC Sports president of programming Jon Miller offered some headline quotes to after NBC made its announcement. This is another way for us to put product out there, to recoup part of our investment but not in any way hurt the overall product or the exposure that we’ve been able to provide from year one.” Miller is right, but his words bear parsing through. You also surely noted that Miller said the subscription platform will “recoup part of our investment” in Premier League rights.

That said, you’ll still need a TV subscription of some kind to get access to games on linear channels such as NBC, NBCSN, CNBC and USA Network.

NBC’s streaming of those games will be through the network’s free-with-authentication platform.

It’s another sign that the NBC Sports Group, a subsidiary of Philadelphia-based Comcast, is moving away from a financial model that draws its most important revenues from cable and satellite TV subscriptions.

If you are surprised by NBC’s decision, you maybe shouldn’t be.

NBC said in a press release that there will be “up to 250 games” on linear channels, including a specific reference to “at least one match in each Premier League match time window.” Some kickoff windows will have more than one game on TV.

I’m told that NBC plans to continue to televise two games at 10 a.m.

That covers just about all the big games you could think of.

A contest between any two of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will surely be on TV, because British broadcaster Sky and BT Sport make sure the marquee matchups get their own time slots.

The network signaled the possibility of this happening in August 2015 when it signed a six-year rights extension with the EPL.
