Comcast and NBCUniversal Deliver Football Any Way You Want It This Fall

NBC Sports will take over the living room again on Thursday, September 5, when the reigning Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens kick off the NFL season against Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos. Fans can return to NBC each week for the weekend’s marquee match-up on Sunday Night Football, the No. 1 show on primetime for the last two television seasons. Plus, hardcore football fans and fantasy aficionados with Xfinity TV can keep up with every touchdown from every NFL game on Sunday all on one channel: NFL RedZone

The football action does not stop there. The college season opens on Thursday, August 29, with a regional rivalry, pitting South Carolina against North Carolina on ESPN, which Xfinity TV customers can watch anywhere on the WatchESPN app and on Xfinity.com/TV. Throughout the season, Xfinity TV customers can catch NFL and college touchdowns wherever they are by streaming networks such as the Pac-12 Network, BIG Ten Network and WatchESPN – which includes streaming of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPN Goal Line – online at Xfinity.com/TV, and can access the NBC Sports Live Extraapp to watch every Notre Dame home game as they seek to repeat a BCS title game appearance. NBC Sports Live Extra is part of Comcast and NBCUniversal’s TV Everywhere effort and one of many ways Xfinity TV is delivering customers a comprehensive, cross-platform sports offering. 

And if "the beautiful game" is more your thing, American fans will also soon be able to see every goal from the Premier League - the world’s most popular soccer league – presented across all platforms by NBC Sports Group. 

Starting this Saturday, August 17, Xfinity TV will offer American fans unprecedented access to all 380 games of the Premier League on NBC Sports. All 10 matches each week will be presented on television and streamed live as well, with studio pre-and post-game coverage on NBC, NBCSN, Telemundo, mun2, Premier League Extra Time, NBC Sports Live Extra and other NBCUniversal channels. Replays and other Premier League content will be available to Xfinity TV customers on Xfinity On Demand. Chelsea fans stateside won’t need to huddle in a local pub to see their team take on Liverpool anymore. 

Xfinity TV customers can also keep up on top sports programming through Xfinity On Demand – where recaps of every single NFL game are available the next day – and the Xfinity TV Player App for mobile devices, currently featuring ESPN, NBC Sports and beIN Sport content. With so much fall football, fans may not have enough time to watch it all – but they will have enough ways with Xfinity TV and NBC Sports Group. And just when the season begins to wind down, the Sochi Olympic Games will be right around the corner.
