I saw that too. On Direct TV in the guide it lists Soccer. It's that freaking NBC trying to force soccer on everyone.

Well... it is the final day of Premier League play, and it IS the single most popular sport in the World.

They did. This isn't a new thing. Happens every Championship Sunday since NBC has had the rights to the Premier League.

Games were aired on NBC, NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), USA, CNBC, MSNBC, SyFy, Golf Channel, Olympic Channel, Regional NBC carriers and NBC Sports Online. All the games air at the same time across the NBC networks and each network carried a different game, which as a fan is really great.

This just proves to me how golf is becoming a smaller niched sport. I honestly believe the golf channel won’t be around in less than a decade.

Bite your tongue.  It's one of the few channels these days I find worth watching.

It's two hours of coverage of the final day of arguably the biggest league of the inarguably most popular sport in the universe.
So this conflicts with early fourth round coverage of a PGA tournament that most big names have skipped.
Probably a good call by NBC.

At first I was upset about this. But then I focused on the big picture and that is at least dish network has not lost the golf channel! I can’t watch channel 9, I can’t watch the NFL network, and I can’t watch Fox sports South because they’re trying to save money off of my bill!    How much more will my bill go up if I had back 3 of my favorite channels?   I guess it’s time to stream or go back to Direct

Amen to that 👍. Nothing against soccer but it is The Golf Channel afterall.  

On the other hand, as bad a shape as they seem to be financially right now, it may take some creative alliance like this to keep the network at all.

It was a real head scratcher... I am assuming with the return of live sports the netwok had a hole and put it on.

I eas confused as NBC Sports Network and Golf Channel are 206 and 207 on the cable just thought I had on the wrong channel but then after surfing around all of the NBC Universal channels had a EPL game on.

NBC didn"t do this to make us mad or to foist soccer on us, they did it for the money, otherwise they wouldn't do it.
