All matches available on NBC Sports Live Extra

NBC Sports Group's Premier League coverage continues this week with five games on NBCSN and one on NBC. In a schedule change, the Southampton-Sunderland match featuring Sunderland striker and U.S. Men's National Team star Jozy Altidore has been moved into the Saturday 10 a.m. ET slot on NBCSN.

Altidore played all 90 minutes of Sunderland's 1-0 loss to Fulham last Saturday. Just three days earlier, his second-half hat trick propelled the U.S. team to a 4-3 come-from-behind win over Bosnia and Herzegovina in an international friendly.

The four additional games in the Saturday 10 a.m. time slot will be available on Premier League Extra Time, a bonus television package available to MVPDs at no extra cost for customers who receive NBC Sports Network.

Two matches will be telecast in Spanish by mun2 this week.

Lead play-by-play voice Arlo White joins former Premier League star and four-time league champion Lee Dixon to call Aston Villa-Liverpool Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on NBC. White and Graeme Le Saux, the former Premier League star who played in 36 international matches for England, will call the Manchester United-Chelsea match at 3 p.m. on Monday.

All matches will be preceded and followed by "Premier League Live" pre- and post-match shows from the NBC Sports Group International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn. Rebecca Lowe hosts "Premier League Live" alongside former U.S. National Team midfielder Kyle Martino and former English footballer Robbie Mustoe.

All Premier League games will be streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra, NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices and tablets. Games airing on NBC Sports Network will be live streamed via "TV Everywhere," the media industry's effort to make quality content available to MVPD customers both in and out of the home and on multiple platforms.

To date, AT&T U-verse, Bright House Networks, Cablevision's Optimum, Comcast's Xfinity TV, Cox, DIRECTV, Mediacom, Suddenlink, and Time Warner Cable have opted to carry the additional Premier League matches via the Premier League Extra Time package, and AT&T U-verse, Cablevision's Optimum, Charter, Comcast's Xfinity TV, Cox, DIRECTV, DISH, Suddenlink and Verizon FiOS will make all Premier League games available through TV Everywhere. Additionally, more than 100 NCTC partners have either signed-on to the Premier League Extra Time package or have opted-in via TV Everywhere, including Blue Ridge Communications, Buckeye CableSystem, CenturyLink Prism, and RCN. In some cases, the Premier League Extra Time package will be available in select markets.
