For the first time since Comcast gained control of Sky Sports back in September – NBC will import some of the British satellite company’s resources.
NBC Sports Net is set to give domestic soccer fans a day filled with Premier League transfer deadline coverage today, and half will come from the European sports media giant. 3 of the scheduled 6 hour block here in the States will be a live simulcast of the Sky studio show in the United Kingdom.
In the meantime, analysts from each side of the pond will contribute back and forth. Sky Sports News will kick things off at 2 pm ET this afternoon on NBC Sports Net with the American crew picking things up at 5 pm and carry the torch until 8.
Comcast, the parent company of NBC and NBCSN, purchased majority control of Sky back in October.
“We look forward to sharing the unique content that NBC Sports and Sky Sports create,” declared Sam Flood, President of Production for NBC.
