Here is NBC Sports' initial television schedule for English Premier League and Major League Soccer games from August through November. MLS games are in italics, and Union games are in bold.

I will add in more information about this season's authenticated streaming and Extra Time TV channel providers when I can. For now, you can refer back to last season's viewer's guide.

Matches listed as TBA indicate simultaneous kickoffs for which the NBCSN broadcast has not been chosen yet. I have included commentary teams for games where they have been announced. For games that also air on Telemundo or mun2, the English commentators are listed first and the Spanish commentators are listed second.

Saturday, October 25

7:45 a.m., NBCSN and mun2: West Ham United vs. Manchester City (Peter Drury and Jim Beglin; Sammy Sadovnik and Manuel Sol)
10:00 a.m., NBCSN: Liverpool vs. Hull City (Joe Speight and Garry Birtles)

12:30 p.m., NBC: Swansea City vs. Leicester City (Arlo White and Lee Dixon)
2:30 p.m., NBC: Seattle Sounders vs. Los Angeles Galaxy (John Strong, Kyle Martino and Russ Thaler)

Seattle-L.A. is NBC's last regular-season MLS game. This date is also the last before the UK sets its clocks back an hour, which takes place earlier in the year than it does in the U.S. So EPL games kick off an hour later for a few weeks after this point.

NBCSN changed its plans at the last minute to show Liverpool-Hull instead of Sunderland-Arsenal. It's also noteworthy that this will be the first time that mun2 airs a 10 a.m. game that will not also be shown on NBCSN. So if you don't have access to Extra Time but you do have mun2, you'll still be able to watch the latter contest.
