Premier League season debuts on NBC networks

The English Premier League – recognized as perhaps the best national league in the world, and certainly the most popular – gets underway on Friday. The NBC Sports networks will provide extensive coverage for a fifth season in a row, although the telecast plans have changed a bit.
The majority of contests will be aired on NBC Sports Network (Spectrum cable Ch. 81, 314), notably on Saturday mornings at 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., and Sunday mornings, generally at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. There will be occasional Friday and Monday afternoon games at 3 p.m.
The business channel CNBC (Spectrum 31, 205) will often show Saturday 10 a.m. matches and select Sunday morning matches.
NBC (Spectrum Ch. 4) will show a number of Saturday contests at 12:30 p.m.
In recent years, Time Warner cable (now Spectrum) presented the remaining games (up to five in a the 10 a.m. time slot) on its overflow channels named Premier League Extra Time and webcast those matches on the NBC Sports app for customers who had subscriptions to NBC Sports Network. That plan has been scrapped this season in favor of bulking up its NBC Sports Gold offering, a web service that provides subscription-based coverage for sports such as cycling, rugby and track and field. For $50, fans can watch all non-cable airings of approximately 130 Premier League matches.
The matches that air on NBC, NBCSN and CNBC will be streamed on NBCsports.com and the NBC Sports app; the NBC Sports Gold matches will not.
-*-*-*-
Spanish-speaking audiences will have 220 live matches broadcast on Telemundo (Spectrum Ch. 61, 803) and Universo (Spectrum Ch. 898) and, webstreamed on TelemundoDeportes.com and wireless on the Telemundo Deportes En Vivo app (Telemundo Sports live).
Telemundo Deportes will present 140 live matches that will air on Telemundo and Universo (formerly named NBC Universo and previously known as mun2). The websiteTelemundoDeportes.com will have 80 exclusive matches.

CFL returns to ESPN networks

ESPN will open its Canadian Football League schedule with four games on its TV networks this week. ESPN networks have 13 regular-season games scheduled through August 13, with more to be announced later. The networks will also carry the CFL playoffs and Grey Cup championship in the fall.
Montreal Alouettes night games can be heard on CKGM (690-AM) in the Hudson Valley. All games are available on the TuneIn radio app.
The CFL schedule on ESPN:
June
Thur. 22 – Saskatchewan at Montreal, 7:30 p.m. (ESPNews); Fri. 23 – Calgary at Ottawa, 7:30 p.m. (ESPNews); Sat. 24 – Edmonton at British Columbia, 10 p.m. (ESPN2); Sun. 25 – Hamilton at Toronto, 4 p.m. (ESPN2); Thur. 29 – Ottawa at Calgary, 9 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 30 – British Columbia at Toronto, 7 p.m. (ESPN2); Montreal at Edmonton, 10 p.m. (ESPN3)
July
Sat. 1 – Winnipeg at Saskatchewan, 9 p.m. (ESPNews); Thur. 6 – British Columbia at Montreal, 7:30 p.m. (ESPNews); Fri. 7 – Calgary at Winnipeg, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Sat. 8 – Toronto at Ottawa, 7 p.m. (ESPN3); Hamilton at Saskatchewan, 10 p.m. (ESPN2); Thur. 13 – Toronto at Winnipeg, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 14 – Calgary at Montreal, 7 p.m. (ESPN3); Ottawa at Edmonton, 10 p.m. (ESPN3); Sat. 15 – British Columbia at Hamilton, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Wed. 19 – Montreal at Ottawa, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Thur. 20 – Edmonton at Hamilton, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 21 – Winnipeg at British Columbia, 10 p.m. (ESPN3); Sat. 22 – Saskatchewan at Calgary, 9 p.m. (ESPN3); Mon. 24 – Ottawa at Toronto, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN2); Thur. 27 – Montreal at Winnipeg, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN2); Fri. 28 – British Columbia at Edmonton, 9:30 p.m. (ESPN2); Sat. 29 – Toronto at Saskatchewan, 6:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Hamilton at Calgary, 9:30 p.m. (ESPN3)
August
Thur. 3 – Calgary at Toronto, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 4 – Winnipeg at Ottawa, 7 p.m. (ESPN3); Hamilton at Edmonton, 9:30 p.m. (ESPN2); Sat. 5 – Saskatchewan at British Columbia, 7 p.m. (ESPN3); Thur. 10 – Edmonton at Ottawa, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 11 – Toronto at Montreal, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Sat. 12 – Winnipeg at Hamilton, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Sun. 13 – British Columbia at Saskatchewan, 8 p.m. (ESPN2); Thur. 17 – Edmonton at Winnipeg, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 18 – Ottawa at Hamilton, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Calgary at British Columbia, 10:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Sat. 19 – Montreal at Toronto, 4 p.m. (ESPN3); Thur. 24 – Winnipeg at Montreal, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Fri. 25 – Saskatchewan at Edmonton, 9:30 p.m. (ESPN3); British Columbia at Ottawa, 3:30 p.m. (ESPN3); Toronto at Calgary, 9 p.m.; Thur. 31 – Ottawa at Montreal, 7:30 p.m.

Here are the games not yet assigned – you can bet ESPN3 will air most of these with so many college football conflicts on Fridays and Saturdays. I wouldn’t be surprised to see ESPN2 or ESPNews carry some of the Sunday fall games as counter programming to the NFL.
September
Sun. 3 – Winnipeg at Saskatchewan, 4 p.m.; Mon. 4 – Edmonton at Calgary, 3 p.m.; Toronto at Hamilton, 6:30 p.m.; Fri. 8 – Montreal at British Columbia, 10 p.m.; Sat. 9 – Saskatchewan at Winnipeg, 3 p.m.; Hamilton at Ottawa, 6 p.m.; Calgary at Edmonton, 9 p.m.; Fri. 15 – Saskatchewan at Hamilton, 7 p.m.; Sat. 16 – Edmonton at Toronto, 4 p.m.; British Columbia at Calgary, 7 p.m.; Sun. 17 – Ottawa at Montreal, 1 p.m.; Fri. 22 – Ottawa at Winnipeg, 8 p.m.; Hamilton at British Columbia, 11 p.m.; Sat. 23 – Montreal at Toronto, 7 p.m.; Sun. 24 – Calgary at Saskatchewan, 4 p.m.; Fri. 29 – Saskatchewan at Ottawa, 7 p.m.; Montreal at Calgary, 9:30 p.m.; Sat. 30 – Toronto at Hamilton, 6:30 p.m.; Winnipeg at Edmonton, 9:30 p.m.
