NBC’s Manchester United-Hull City on Saturday Averages 1.16 Million Viewers; Most Live-Streamed Premier League Weekend Ever

Live Match Coverage Continues Next Saturday, September 10, with Blockbuster Manchester Derby at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN

STAMFORD, Conn. – August 30, 2016 – NBCSN presents a special, three-hour Premier League Live: Transfer Deadline Day tomorrow, Wednesday, August 31, live at 5 p.m. ET. The program will cover breaking news and include insights and analysis on all the latest transfers. Rebecca Lowe hosts the program, joined by former Major League Soccer and U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Kyle Martino, former Jamaican National Team Player Robbie Earle, and former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe.

NBC’s broadcast of Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Hull City on Saturday, August 27, averaged 1.16 million viewers to rank as the eighth most-watched live Premier League match in U.S. history (tied with Man City-Man United, 3/20/16 on NBC, and West Ham-Man City, 1/23/16 on NBC). In addition, last weekend ranks as the most streamed Premier League weekend (Sat.-Sun.) in history, with 28.6 million minutes streamed on and the NBC Sports app.

Live Premier League match coverage continues next Saturday, September 10, with a blockbuster Manchester Derby as Manchester United host Manchester City at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN. This season’s first installment of the Manchester Derby is one of the most anticipated fixtures of the year as both clubs have new managers in charge, with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. The two world-class managers have a heated history from their time overlapping in Spain (2010-2012), where Mourinho led Real Madrid while Guardiola was in charge of archrivals Barcelona. Now, the managerial foes are in the same city, bringing an extra layer of intrigue to the always-electric Manchester Derby. Coverage begins Saturday at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live.

All Premier League games will be streamed on and the NBC Sports app, NBC Sports Group’s live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs. The NBC Sports app will stream all matches via “TV Everywhere,” giving consumers additional value to their subscription service, and making high quality content available to MVPD customers both in and out of the home and on multiple platforms.
