Non subscription dating service
The English Premier League soccer game between Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Manchester United and Watford will only be available for viewing in the United States through NBC Sports’ paid subscription streaming service. Indeed, it has been ever since it added English Premier League soccer games to its paid subscription streaming platform, NBC Sports Gold, at the start of the season this past August.
Next year, more TV networks will launch subscription streaming services independent of their TV offerings.“We have conviction that this is the right business model around the Premier League, and the other sports we’ve added to NBC Sports Gold,” Cordella said.“The media world is continuing to shift, and TV ratings aren’t what they used to be, and certainly subscriber levels haven’t been as high as they’ve been in the past.It’s only available to fans in the Portland region, but it still allows for watching live games without a TV subscription.Cordella said thus far, NBC Sports Gold’s subscriber base is “well into the six figures” as a combined total for all of its offerings.Fox has run a soccer-specific streaming platform for years.
It features every game from the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, CONCACAF national team tournaments, Germany’s Bundesliga and other soccer properties.
“From that perspective, we feel good heading into the midweek games.” The Premier League isn’t the only sports property on the NBC Sports Gold platform.
There are also sport-by-sport subscription packages for track and field, cycling — including commercial-free coverage of the Tour de France with enhanced analytics — English rugby and motocross racing.
Cordella said there haven’t been problems since then.
“We feel pretty good where we are technologically,” he added.
Those fans have continued to make their voices heard on social media throughout the season.
