NBC has announced that it will allow American viewers to watch English Premier League football (soccer) via its iOS app NBC Sports Live Extra. English Premier League matches begin this weekend and making them available to stream via its iOS app only makes sense for NBC, which is the new rights holder for the English Premier League football games in the United States.

In order to watch the streaming football matches, users must have an NBCSports Live Extra account, which comes with select Verizon Fios, Comcast Xfinity, Cablevision, Suddenlink, Mediacom, Bend and Grande cable TV packages.

NBC Sports Live Extra is a universal app and a free download on the App Store.

NBC streaming English Premier League football games via NBC Sports Live Extra app originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Wed, 14 Aug 2013 11:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
