The Premier League announces kickoff times on a rolling basis in the second half of the season, and NBC follows suit with its broadcast schedule.

Here is the schedule of broadcasts for English Premier League and Major League Soccer games on NBC, NBC Sports Network and the rest of the Peacock empire.

The Premier League announces kickoff times on a rolling basis in the second half of the season, and NBC follows suit with its broadcast schedule. Overall, the basic framework from the first half of the season remains in place, so you should be able to make some educated guesses on your own.

I have included MLS games through May 11, the final day of the Premier League season. The full 2014 MLS national television schedule is here

My viewer's guide on how to watch NBC's EPL broadcasts on TV and online is here. I'm not going to re-hash all of it here because most of you know the drill already.

6:30 p.m.: Transfer Deadline Day live coverage (NBCSN)

Remember when Fox Soccer used to simulcast Sky Sports' live coverage of transfer deadline day? Well, NBCSN is going to try doing the same thing. They'll have a one-hour broadcast covering the close of the window at 7:00 p.m.

With Rebecca Lowe working the Olympics in Sochi, Steve Bower will fill in. He'll be joined by Kyle Martino, Robbie Mustoe and Robbie Earle in studio, Arlo White in Newcastle (see why below) and the Daily Mail's Neil Ashton from London.

8:30 a.m.: Newcastle United vs. Aston Villa (Extra Time)
11:00 a.m.: Norwich City vs. Tottenham Hotspur (NBCSN)

There's no 7:45 a.m. game this weekend for some reason.

10:00 a.m.: Fulham vs. Chelsea (NBCSN)
10:00 a.m.: Stoke City vs. Arsenal, Everton vs. West Ham United, Hull City vs. Newcastle United (Extra Time)

11:30 a.m.: Tottenham Hotspur vs. Cardiff City (NBCSN/Arlo White and Lee Dixon)
11:30 a.m.: Aston Villa vs. Norwich City, Swansea City vs. Crystal Palace (Extra Time)

And then, believe it or not, the 2014 MLS season will be upon us.

Saturday, March 8

NBCSN airs a quadrupleheader of games. Including all the studio shows, there will be 10 and a half straight hours of soccer coverage.

7:45 a.m.: West Bromwich Albion vs. Manchester United (NBCSN, mun2/Sammy Sadovnik and Manuel Sol)
10:00 a.m.: Cardiff City vs. Fulham (NBCSN)
10:00 a.m.: Crystal Palace vs. Southampton, Norwich City vs. Stoke City, West Ham United vs. Hull City (Extra Time)
12:30 p.m.: Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur (NBCSN/Arlo White and Graeme Le Saux)
3:00 p.m.: Seattle Sounders vs. Sporting Kansas City (NBCSN/John Strong, Kyle Martino and Russ Thaler)

There are no Premier League games on Sunday, March 9 or Monday, March 10 because there are also FA Cup quarterfinals this weekend. Arsenal-Everton (7:45 a.m. Saturday, Fox Sports 1) is the headliner. The full schedule is here.

Saturday, March 15

England moves to Daylight Savings Time a few weeks after we do, so all the Premier League kickoff times are an hour later.

8:45 a.m.: Hull City vs. Manchester City (NBCSN)
11:00 a.m.: Sunderland vs. Crystal Palace (NBCSN)
11:00 a.m.: Everton vs. Cardiff City, Southampton vs. Norwich City, Fulham vs. Newcastle United, Swansea City vs. West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City vs. West Ham United (Extra Time)

It's the first time all season that NBCSN will have announcing crews live on site for two games on the same day. You'll notice that U.S. national team goalkeeper Tim Howard will be back in the broadcast booth for United-Liverpool, a day after Everton's home game against Cardiff. It's a reasonably short trip from Goodison Park to Old Trafford, and Howard has already called Sunday games after playing on Saturdays this season.

Sunday morning's pregame show is live from White Hart Lane with White and the BBC's Gary Lineker, starting at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.

After the second game, NBCSN will have its usual half-hour Goal Zone postgame studio show. Then Match of the Day II will be broadcast live at 2:30 p.m. instead of taped. That back-to-back arrangement will continue on Sundays for the rest of the season.

Wednesday, April 16

2:45 p.m.: Manchester City vs. Sunderland (NBCSN)

4:00 p.m.: Chicago Fire vs. New England Revolution (NBCSN/John Strong, Robbie Russell and Danny Pommells)

You'll notice that the MLS crew will have some new faces this weekend. One of them, though, is likely to be familiar to Philadelphia sports fans. Danny Pommells hosts SportsNet Central at 10 p.m. on weekdays, as well as the taped late-night and early-morning editions of the channel's flagship highlights show. 

A Philadelphia native and Temple University product, Pommells told me that NBC Sports reached out to him for the job. He admitted to me that most of his previous soccer experience comes from watching the sport as opposed to broadcasting it, and he has taken his family to PPL Park to sit in the stands a few times. 

Pommells singled out play-by-play voice John Strong and producer Shaw Brown as people he's looking forward to working with. 

"I'm just the point guard steering everybody through," he said. "I'm going to jump in headfirst and look to make the most of it."

Kyle Martino, meanwhile, has switched off MLS duty for a few weeks to work with a Discovery Channel show on jumping from Mount Everest. His replacement for the time being is former Real Salt Lake and D.C. United defender Robbie Russell.

4:00 p.m.: Sporting Kansas City vs. Columbus Crew (NBCSN/John Strong, Kyle Martino and Dalen Cuff)

Kyle Martino returns to NBCSN this weekend, earlier than originally planned. Discovery Channel canceled the Mount Everest jump documentary that he was part of after an avalanche earlier this month killed 13 people.

Dalen Cuff is a name that most of you are probably not so familiar with. He works as a college basketball analyst and sideline reporter for NBCSN, and as a presenter for Comcast SportsNet New England's local SportsNet Central highlights show. He also hosts CSN weekly magazine show on the New England Revolution.

Don't let his lack of soccer TV work fool you, though, because he knows the game really well. And I'll admit I know that because I've been friends with him for a long time outside of soccer. We have traveled the same circles in college basketball for many years, going back to his playing days at Columbia from 2002 to 2006. I'm sure he'll do well in this new role.

You can follow him on Twitter here.
