Premier League on NBC

Premier League on NBC and Premier League on NBCSN is the blanket title for broadcasts of the Premier League by the networks of NBCUniversal, including cable channel NBCSN and the NBC network.

The network acquired rights to the league in 2013, replacing Fox Sports and ESPN.[1] NBC's studio programming for the league includes the pre-match show Premier League Live, and the highlights shows Premier League Goal Zone and Match of the Day (modeled upon the similar BBC series).[2] On Survival Sunday, the majority of games are carried on linear television, utilizing many of NBCUniversal's cable networks.[3]

NBCSN also operates pop-up channels branded as Premier League Extra Time, which broadcasts overflow matches not shown by other NBC networks.[4] However in 2017, NBC began to paywall many of these overflow games behind the "Premier League Pass" service on NBC Sports Gold.[5]

In 2018, NBC Sports became a sibling of one of the league's domestic rightsholders, Sky Sports, after Comcast acquired Sky plc. The divisions collaborated on-air for the first time during the 2019 transfer deadline, which featured simulcasts of Sky Sports News and use of Sky correspondents as part of NBCSN-produced coverage.[6][7] In July 2019, NBC announced a secondary tier of Premier League Pass also adding studio programming from Sky, including Soccer Saturday and Goals on Sunday among others.[8]

Lee Dixon

Lee Michael Dixon (born 17 March 1964) is an English retired professional footballer who played as a right-back for Arsenal, Burnley, Bury, Chester City and Stoke City. Dixon was also capped 22 times for England, scoring once.

A childhood Manchester City fan, Dixon began his footballing career as a youth at Burnley, making his professional debut for them in 1982. From there he played for Chester City and Bury before joining Stoke City in 1986 for a fee of £50,000. He instantly impressed at Stoke and forged a fine defensive partnership with Steve Bould. The pair's potential and performances attracted the attention of Arsenal and in January 1988 they both joined the "Gunners" for a combined fee of £765,000. The following season, as Dixon cemented his place in the team, Arsenal won their first league title in eighteen years in a dramatic final game of the season. A defensive mainstay in a successful Arsenal team until his retirement in 2002, Dixon's tenure at Arsenal saw him collect four league championship medals, three FA Cup winner's medals and a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup medal. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year twice, for the seasons 1989–90 and 1990–91. His retirement came at the end of Arsenal's domestic double-winning 2001–02 season, their second in his time at the club. At the time of his retirement, he had played at 91 out of the 92 Football League grounds – every one except Fulham's Craven Cottage.

Since his playing retirement, Dixon has worked as a football pundit and columnist. He began his television career working for the BBC, primarily on their Match of the Day and Football Focus programmes, then moved to ITV Sport in July 2012. Starting in 2013, he provides commentary alongside Arlo White for NBC's Premier League coverage in the USA. He has also done charitable work, joining Lawrence Dallaglio in a sponsored bike ride for Sport Relief which raised over £986,000 for the charity.

NBC Sports

NBC Sports is the programming division of the American broadcast network NBC, owned by the NBCUniversal Television Group division of NBCUniversal, that is responsible for sports broadcasts on the network, and its dedicated national sports cable channels. Formerly operating as "a service of NBC News", it broadcasts a diverse array of sports events, including the Olympic Games, the NFL, NASCAR, the NHL, Notre Dame football, the PGA Tour, the IndyCar Series, the French Open, the Premier League, and the Triple Crown, among others. Other programming from outside producers – such as coverage of the Ironman Triathlon – is also presented on the network through NBC Sports. With Comcast's acquisition of NBCUniversal, its own cable sports networks were aligned with NBC Sports into a part of the division known as the NBC Sports Group.
